12 oz bottle.

Gorgeous clear copper, 1 finger head. Recedes and leaves ring around the edge. Leaves lacing.

Beautiful blend of hops and malt. Citrusy and floral hop aromas blend with caramel sweetness perfectly. Has legs.

APA or IPA? Does it matter? Very well balanced. Caramel sweetness up front, hangs out while the hops ramp up through the middle and balances nicely in the clean finish.

Mildly fizzy, smooth, creamy with medium body.

Too tasty to chug, but easily sessionable. Each sip begs another.

Wow, a great beer.
