Enjoyed straight from the bottle.

A-Since I drank it from the bottle I have little to report on appearance but it looks exceptional.

S-Smell of hops and other grains. Maybe some slight pine aromas.

T-Great tasting beer. A little hoppy and maybe some piny tastes.

M-Great carbonation light bodied. Extremely smooth.

O-This is a great beer to bridge into the world of craft beer. Extremely drinkable and readily available. This beer is decently priced as well.

The classic APA. Pours a nice light copper color with a big fluffy white head that goes on and on. Aroma of pine, grapefruits, lemon peel, grass, more pine. Flavor follows with big pine bitter, a beautiful sweet caramel malt backbone, and a lemon peel finish. Lingering grass on the palate. Bubbly carbonation and easy drinking, slightly dry. Good stuff, of course.

On tap. Pours a clear golden copper with a small off white head that has good retention and leaves some light lacing on the glass. The aroma is floral hops, some light citrus, caramel, a light mineral note, and some light pine. The initial taste is sweet with caramel, and a bit of sugar cookie. Then comes some tangerine and floral hops. The finish has a light bitterness. Medium body. Medium carbonation.
