Hops in this beer are flat and uninspired. Malt is thin and too sweet. The bitterness is aggressive and a solvent aftertaste destroys any lingering pleasantness this beer might have. Alpha acid isomerization has over converted. Adding high alpha hops too early in the boil removes most essential oils creating a flat aroma.

12 oz.

Pours amber gold with a thin white head.

Smells of light caramel malts and mild piney hops.

The flavor is of piney, slightly fruity hops up front, with a mild bready caramel malt follow-through.

Medium to light body with a soft carbonation.

An average APA, nothing special but nothing wrong with it either. Fine, but I actually might prefer one of their pilsners to this. Worth a try, but maybe not multiple tries.
