3.7/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 oz May 2013 bottle served in a snifter.

Pour is a very orange amber, with a small and short-lived head. Spots of lacing are left on the glass. Crystal clear and no sediment in the glass.

Slightly earthy, moderately strong aroma of citrus, pine and herbal hops with a hint of sweet malt. The flavor too is nicely hoppy, but the hops are less piney and the malt load is more apparent, particularly in the very mild bitterness. Has the unusual dynamics of seeming more bitter mid-taste than in the fnish. Hints of grapefruit, orange and starfruit.

Medium-light body; well carbonated; semi-dry finish.

O: It's easy to like this very drinkable APA. Recommended.
