Pours a golden color with very little head and pretty good lacing. Aroma is of hops and some malt, focusing on hay and grass aromas. A touch of barnyard odor also, if you know what I mean. Taste is ok, hops are decent and the malt is slightly too much. Hops and malt sweetness battle it out in this beer and I am not sure who is winning. Mouthfeel is good with a decent amount of carbonation(could have used a touch more). Aftertaste is slightly bitter with a hint of a metallic flavor.

Pours a hazy/dirty golden honey color with a short white head that settles into a sparse cap.

The aroma is bright and sweet. There are scents of pineapple and grapefruit. A bit of grass as well. Some bready aromas from the malt.

The taste mimics the aroma. Pineapple is dominate but not overpowering. Grass and grapefruit keep the hop profile from being too sweet. Grass really comes through in the finish. The malt is bready with a honey sweetness.

The feel is moderate with fizzy carbonation. Sweet on the palate but finishes with a hoppy bitterness. Good balance and very easy to drink.

I found this APA to be quite enjoyable. Nice bright hop flavors and enough bitterness to balance. I would buy this again.
