Pours crystal clear deep gold with a skiff of white head that rapidly becomes a film, streaky lacing. The aroma is has a lemon and grapefruit citrus quality from the hops and a clean malt character. Flavor is grainy pale malt, a woodsy hop bitterness and a stale green bitterness and bite to the finish. It is very dry and crisp with active carbonation that gives it a fairly light feel and a bracing finish. This is a nice, clean, bracing APA-like beer that is pretty easy to drink and has a nice firm bitterness. The real weak spot is the flavor but even it is mainly a victim of being principally bitterness without tons of flavor. A tasty easy drinker.
