I become a member of this website just so I could speak out against the heretics giving less APA a less than 4 rating.
This beer is everything you've been looking for in an APA. Smooth, full flavor, a perfect measure of hoppiness with a pine-like finish. If this were the only beer I could drink the rest of my life, I would be satisfied. No gimmicks, no novelty - just an amazing beer. Other raters should be ashamed. Enough with your hipster nonsense.

I'll start by saying I like everything about this beer, except the price... which is why I hit it lower in the "overall". Really, I like almost everything 4 Hands does, I just hope they continue to grow and expand, so hopefully their prices come down. I know, quality vs quantity, etc. Anyway, on to this particular beer.

Limited, Local release in 4 pack of pint cans. 5.5 abv, which makes it easy to have a few (and all the more reason I wish prIce was lower. .. of course, I am cheap). Bright amber/Orange color is a bit hazy. White head with tight, foamy bubbles dissipates quickly, but lacing is nice. Love the smell. Like a bouquet of flowers and citrus fruits. Taste is equally impressive. Very hop forward, but quickly balances with some caramel malt goodness. Feel is a little biting/hop/slight tart, but also feels very smooth and with a creamy texture. There is a lot in this pale ale. Closest thing it reminds me of are some of the Higher abv offerings from Lagunitas. Liked it a lot. Happy I got it. Will drink again... if someone else is buying.

This beer checks every box for a desirable American pale ale. This is my new go to beer. If you have the chanc, try it/buy it. Perfect beer for a warm spring day.

Beautiful Amber color
Fluffy/light head that dissipates quickly with nice lacing
Love the smell, very hop forward flowers and citrus fruits
Taste is equally impressive with some caramel malt goodness and hops of course
It's very rare to come across a beer that is exceptional and easy to buy, but 4Hands has done it.

Copper color with excellent clarity and an inch of very dense off-white to tan colored head. Light lacing. Magnificent mosaic hop and slightly citrus aroma. The taste is a nice blend of citrus forward and some mosaic hops along with a nice light malt backbone that reveals itself on the back of the palate. The mouth is faintly resinous, but overall this APA is very smooth and packed with flavor.

Besieged neighbor bought this one from down Illinois. It poured a hazy golden with white head that is leaving a nice lace. The scent is nice combo of pine and citrus peel. The taste is nicely balanced and easy to drink. There is more citrus and alcohol. The Mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a very solid beer and worth a try.
