look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Light gold with large white head. head fizzles a bit fast to a thin veil of foam.

S/T: Balanced. Lightly floral hops aroma a top a fruity tinged caramel malt backing. The grains are good quality and create a slightly creamy richness without being buttery.

M: Thin to medium. Lightly carbonated.

D: An above average, balanced APA. I would be proud if I could mass produce this beer with consistency. I would be proud to call it my home town brew that you can find on draft in the region. I just wouldn't waste my time tracking it down.
