look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A grainy backbone that carries through the beer, citrus at the front and bitter hops at the end.

Taste Rating in Words: It's an old, left to right, video game that pushes you, driving you through the level. There are some twists and turns but the game stays true to itself.

16oz can dated best by 2/17/17 in the bottom. Not much going on with nose or taste. Very average.

Poured from the can into a glass.

Bright, murky orange-yellow color.

Huge bright white head; nice lacing.

Hopped up pilsener smell; some citrus, some bread.

Thin mouthfeel.

Fairly boring flavor; some bread flavor, some macro-lager aftertaste, & very little citrus from the hops. I won't be having another.

16 oz can from MN into a pint glass. Drink by stamp: 21 Oct. 2016.

Appearance: Slightly hazy light amber with a large white cap. Good retention and lacing.

Aroma: Earthy (Noble?) and floral hops with subtle tropical fruit notes.

Flavor: Tropical fruit and floral notes. Subtle sweetness and bread notes from the malts. Mild+ bitterness overall.

Feel: Very good; smooth and almost creamy yet with medium carbonation.

Overall: A well crafted APA featuring Galaxy hops.
