Poured from bottle into pint glass.

A - Poured a cloudy gold color with a large white, foamy head. The head had a good amount of lacing and retention. Head slowly dissipated to a finger foamy/bubbly half finger level.

S - Flowery, citrus hop smell character.

T - Citrus hops up front with a slight malt body and light hop finish.

M - Mouthfeel typical of style, good amount of carbonation. Slight creamy finish due to large foamy head. Crisp not dry.

O - I like it. I liked Lunch better.

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a hazy light brass hue with a half finger white cap. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a blend of herbal and piney hops with a round malty aroma.

The taste featured clean piney hops atop a based of round pale malts.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a superior APA.
