Notes / Commercial Description:
You know those epic days that start with an idea, turn into a dare and end with a great story to tell? This is the beer for those days. Crisp and refreshing like any respectable session ale, but a bit more hop-forward and flavorful than some. Perfect for going with the flow.

I'll spend my time focusing my review mostly on taste, first sip very crisp and dry. A tad bit astringent I get floral, grassy, tad bit of citrus but more melon and what I can only describe as the taste of crushed up Smarties ( the candy) it's a sweet taste but dry and chalky sweet. To me I don't taste much malt. Definitely less malty than any other APA I've had. The smell follow the crushed up smarties taste candy like, sweet melon with a touch of floral and maybe some pine but can't take my mind or pallet off the Smarties. As I'm writing I figured it out, the taste. That dry chalky somewhat bitter yet sweet taste taste like Redbull to me. Hence the analogy of crushed up smarties. Yes loose leaf has a taste of almost a energy drink type taste. I gave taste a 3.75 as it doesn't bother me it's just different. I suppose if I was rating this beer by what a APA should taste like it would probably get a 3 or less. But I don't hate it.

This beer pours a rich corn yellow with decent head. The aroma offers up pepper, thyme, crushed leaves, and cumin. The flavor leads with lemon peel, crushed leaves, pepper, and something pleasant and earthy I cannot quite put my finger on. The mouthfeel is light and slightly astringent. Overall this is a very pleasant simple pale ale, nice and dry but not too hoppy either. It is excellent when looking for a restrained beer.
