12 oz bottle poured into a chalice. Pours a clear amber color with a finger and a half of foam. Aroma is predominantly crystal malt with a hint of earthy hops.

First sip is a substantial malty sweetness followed by a strong rush of grassy hop flavors, and sharp, lingering bitterness. Substantial body. This has a lot of bitterness for an APA, but the chewy mouthfeel helps balance the bitterness.

All in all, very tasty but could stand to dial back the bitterness a bit.

Too many crystal malts for a pale ale. Way too sweet and generally not enjoyable.
