Amber orange color with a thick head with decent retention and leaving a wall of laces.
Aroma with notes of tangerines, grass and pine, a bit of caramel, mango and pineapples.
Flavor with notes of grapefruit, tangerines, grass, mango, pineapple and pepper-resiny zest. Dry and bitter aftertaste. Friendly, but still surprising resilient at only 31 IBUs and not really fresh.
Bordering medium body with mild carbonation with very tiny bubbles.
Assertive APA with good bitter sweet balance and predominant green and citrusy flavors with a tropical touch. It borders IPA strength.

Pours a clear amberish golden orange yellow with a touch of chill haze and bubbly two finger head of foam.

Strong toasted malt sweetness gives way to pungent citrus zest.

The malt bill certainly doesn't hide in flavor as well, as the strong handed citrus aroma translates to flavor as well.

Light-bodied, medium-high carbonation, crisp, refreshing.

Overall, quite a refreshing APA, but is a little lackluster.
