My dear wife picked this up for me on a whim, noticing, as she was, that I was drinking some good pale ales of late.
It poured a beautiful clear amber with medium fizz building a great finger of white tight head, which subsequently fell quickly to leave its lacy story on my goblet wall.
The aroma of pine and citrus notes first caressed my olfactory organ, then dominated with a malty caramel segue.
Its flavors wash my tongue with hoppy grapefruit, leaving my taste buds awash with a dry bitter finish.
I really enjoyed this APA and could keep drinking them, they don't over do any aspect, keeping a balance that keeps you wanting another mouthful.
