Appearance is a cloudy deep golden with a moderate white foam cap. Aroma is strong fresh cut grass, with hints of pine and wood. Taste is a rich, toasty malt that gives way to a strong bitterness and hop flavors of acidic grapefruit, pine, and grass. Mouthfeel is light to moderate with a moderate carbonation. Finishes very dry and sticky on the tongue with a lingering bitterness and grassy flavor. Overall, an assertively bitter APA with tons of grassy hop flavor and aroma.

poured golden with a thick white head that lasted and left lace on glass beer was somewhat cloudy with some sediment
smell of citrus, lemon, pine and grass
taste slightly sweet with citrus and floral notes
feel crisp and effervescent
not bad bottle date made me nervous but beer seemed fine
