Somehow this got reclassified as an IPA instead of an APA, but it's still very good. It's not super hoppy, so I'm good with it. Light and very easy to drink on hot summer days, and low enough alcohol to not get you in trouble at altitude. Definitely a solid beer.

A: slightly hazy; copper colored; with a moderately aggressive pour, I got a 1/2 inch off white head that receded almost immediately; very little lacing;

S: all caramel malt with a touch of pine;

T: not a lot of flavor; what's there is mostly malt with a bit of pineapple leading into a long lasting, moderately bitter finish;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: there are too many good (and really good) IPAs out there to spend time and money on this one.
