A - Clear gold with a finger of foamy whtie head, little lacing.
S - Caramel malt, grassy hops, very weak aroma.
T - Sweet malt takes the fore on this beer, very little hops come through, slight earthy aftertaste.
M - Chewy and sticky, not clean and crisp like a normal APA.
O - Very malty and sweet not enough hop balance. This is pretty bad.

Saranac has either gotten much better or I am buying the hype of their new packaging.
A: Pours shiny orange amber with thin head of white foam that fell fast. Bit of lace.
S: Nose invitingly brassy, bright with floral and grassy hops. Hay, wet grass, earth. Nice. Perhaps a bit soapy.
T: Follows nose. Plus sweetness of malt and sweetbreat and tiny bit of fruit. Trends to Bitter. Hop forward atop a biscuity malt with enough sweetness to balance. A bit of pepper and a nice finish.
MF: Good weight for mass. I like the bitter long, long finish.
O: One of my favorites from this brewer. Peppery and not run of the mill.
