Veiled golden color with weak activity. Thick white 2 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with some sticky legs.

Aromas of caramel, sweet grains, and a floral bouquet. Flavors of strong roasted grains, caramel, lemon, orange, floral and herbal spices. Nice sweet bready feel with a pleasant sharpness.

Slick medium to heavy body with perfect carbonation. Medium strength finish ending with sugary roasted malt, slightly spicy, lemony and a lingering biscuity feel.

Overall a very good craft offering complex tasty flavors, good freshness, well intensified and balanced. I really enjoyed the malt quality and the nice bread taste it produce.

Golden Amber. Minimal head. Minimal lacing.

Smell hints of floral. But not a strong smell overall.

Taste is almost overpoweringly metallic. Almost, but not quite. Finishes well. A complex taste from start to finish.

Feel is good for the style, but not great. A little light.

I like this beer a lot, but I don't love it. Not my favorite APA, but I would still drink it again, and moreover, enjoy it.

Cool label, cool bottle cap. More power to breweries from states like LA. The south needs more craft breweries. Keep up the good work, gents.
