Medium golden color with a two finger head that lingers. A tad over carbonated with minimal lacing to. Aroma is a blend of herbal and citrus hops. Starts and finishes clean. Similar to a Mirror Pond.

Pours a dark golden color with a thick, white head about two fingers thick, slowly fades out. Smell is heavily citrus and stonefruit, a little malt and pine in the back. Citrus is the dominant flavor throughout, a little malt flavor comes through particularly towards the end. Clean finish. Very nicely balanced, simple, solid APA.

Pours a deep golden with a thick head that lasts a bit. Lots of carbonation, but only mild lacing to compliment the overall appearance. Smells of a mix of herbal and citrus hops. Tastes just like the nose - nice mix of sweeter citrusy hops though on the forefront of the palate. Clean finish at the end of the swallow. Overall, a very nicely done APA.
