I like my APA to be a bit more hop forward and juicy than this one. There is some hop flavor initially but it faded quickly and I was left with a watery aftertaste. There's a little malt to backfill the taste but not much. I was underwhelmed.

I had this beer on tap and thought it was my new favorite beer. The fresh from the tap taste was excellent, combined with a very cool atmosphere. I was a little let down with the canned option I recently tried. Still a very good beer (one of my favorites), but it seemed a little dull compared to the tap version.

L - Medium dark orangish-yellow. Opaque. Short but persistent white head.
S - Bright citrusy hops. A little bit of pale malt. Comes across as fairly sweet.
T - Hoppy, but not excessively bitter. Orange peel. Some light bready sweetness. I like the balance in this one.
