On tap at The Reservoir, Waterbury VT. The appearance was a glossy burnt yellow to orange color with a bar pour’s kind slim white cap of a little head, no lacing, but I’m not worried. The smell starts off with resinous bitter hoppiness with an underscore of pine to balance. The taste was just a tad sweeter than the bitter side in the respect of taking the resinous bitter hoppiness to lead into sweet citrusy bliss. A sliding citrusy aftertaste running into the same sort of finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a slick oily bitter semi-sessionable feel on my tongue. Overall, its a pretty good APA that I could come back to.

On tap at the brewery. Super hazy and bright yellow-orange, lots of lace on the glass. Aroma and flavor are almost all Mosaic hops, grassy, delicious. This is a fine beer and definitely a pale ale, not an IPA. Better than the Citra single hop. Nice but not growler nice.
