Was able to try this during Long Island Craft Beer Week.

A - Pours a light copper color with a heavy foam.

S - Smells hoppy with a little bit of orangy citrus.

T - Tastes pretty robust for an APA. Sweet and citrusy to start and a hoppy bitterness on the back end. Not complex, but it works.

M - Very enjoyable. Farily light modied, and a moderate ABV%. Minimal carbonation.

O - A solid ale from GSB. I tend to like Blonde Ambition a bit more, but would not hesitate to try this again.

Pours a toasted grain color with a soapy white head some clingy lacing.

The beer has a sweet fruity aroma. Limey from the hops and peppery. Noticable cereal grain aroma, has a homebrew character to it.

Just like the aroma, the taste has a fruity and toasted cereal grain malt flavor. A bit of a pine bite from the hops as well as a lime flavor. There is a peppery tingle in the end. This is quite a hoppy APA.

The feel is light to moderate with airy carbonation finishes with quite a bitter bite and a bit of aspirin. The bitter finish is a tad harsh for an APA.

Overall a flavorful APA but too heavy on the bittering hops.

Growler filled in Bay Shore, NY

Pours clear lighter amber, white fluffy head, decent windows of sheeting coupled with fine, wispy and scattered lacing.

Sort of cerealy, and some toased malt notes for the nose.

Respectable pale, some nice fruity notes up front and grainy hops in the rear. Apricots in evidence, along with some honey.

Pleasant enough, more nice beer from GSB Brewing.
