Growler poured into a snifter. The brew appears a polished, perfectly clear burnt copper color with a quick fading off-white cap that hardly leaves spots of lace on the glass.

The aroma contains some biscuit malts, slightly toffee-like with fruity and floral hop/alcohol accent. Not really a sweet smelling brew but the malt is the first thing noted which seems strange for an APA.

The taste is plenty sweet with flavors of caramel/toffee that seems more like sugar than malt. It is a little carbonic in mature slightly mineraly before the finish gets herbal and bitter with a light grassy aspect.

This is a medium bodied brew with a moderate to lower level of carbonation. Not bad, but really not good either. I am glad to finally get to try a beer from this brewery but yikes this leaves a lot to be desired.
