So bland. The taste was almost like an adjunct.

Shared 22oz bottle.
Looks as expected for style.
Flavor: exceptionally fruity APA with near, but lower than average, bitterness.

O: very nice fruity/juicy flavor. Easy drinking.

My first review of this brewery.

Pours coppery in color with a bit of orange. A 2 finger white head settles quickly Slightly cloudy, you can see through it, just no real detail. Bubbles of carbonation evident early on.

Nutty, grapefruit early on, then more lemony in aroma with doughy biscuit and some grassiness.

Rather dry at first impression, but then a bit of sweet, nutty malt. Overall, mostly citric, lemon and bitter lemon peel. Significant piney aspect rising in the back of the mouth. A hint of tropical fruit on occasion, llike mango.

Moderate in body with moderate bite of carbonation. Slightly sticky and drying in the end.

After seeing the reviews, I was surprised at how much I liked this beer.It's not "in your face", but it has good character, and in my opinion, is well rounded. I wouldn't hesitate to try it again.
