3.77/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Hazed appearance with a dull copper hue to it and topped with a fine, near white head.

Smell: Deeply citrusy and richly resinous with a background layer of candy-coated breadiness.

Taste: Lightly sweet, with a bready maltiness. Generous pours of citrus juices, hints of florals, resins, and a splash of clean, clear mountain spring water. Things lighten up before the sweetish, bready finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It's a nice, easy-going APA with a great nose on it.

On-tap at the brewpub. Maris Otter malt dry-hopped with Simcoe.

Pours a deep copper color with a slightly off-white head that leaves solid lacing.

Smells of slightly grainy pale and caramel malts with large amounts of deep citrus and pine hops.

Tastes a lot less robust than it smells. Moderately dry pale malts up front are joined quickly by slightly sweeter caramel malts. Midway through light pine hops come into play before more bitter earthy hops take over, carrying through to a solidly bitter ending. Mouthfeel is good, with smooth carbonation.

Overall I was very impressed by the nose on this one but the flavor profile could be more complex. A good start to a very good beer, I’d like to see this one tweaked a bit.
