Most pleasant.

Pale gold in color.

The citrus and other fruit takes a lot of the bitter edge off and gives it balance, unlike Independence’s “dank and resinous” Stash.

A relaxed yet tasty beer with a nice 5.8% punch.

Most pleasant. :D

Pours a pale gold. The head is white, one finger, and foamy. Rentention is moderate and leaves a good amount of lacing.

The noise is juicy. Im picking up pineapple, peach, orange, and a grapefruit bitterness. Its fairly aromatic.

Nice strong bitterness up front and bitter forward. Aproaching IPA range. Still there is a nice tropical fuit sweetness to balance it while adding some complexity.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied and wet. Carbonation is in the middle with a very crisp bubbly feel.

I was actually very surprised with this one. A solid well rounded APA for sure

Poured from a can into a tulip glass. Clear light yellow with a huge foamy head that was short lived but good lacing. Lemony smell and taste. Some sweet grassiness. Refreshing.

Pours an effervescent straw color with 3+ fingers of rocky ivory colored head. Great lacing & good head retention

S: Bready, a little citrus, fades when warm

T: Follows the nose, a little lemon, a little lime, & a touch of tangerine up front. Dryness, grassyness, lime, breadyness & a little orange peel, Finishes with orange peel & a little bready dryness

MF: Light body, crisp carbonation, nice balance

A very solid APA, probably the best beer I've had from these guys
