Served on-tap at the brewery a bright orange color with two fingers of bright white head.

Bright aroma of pineapple and tropical fruit.

Tasted of pineapple, grapefruit and light bready malts. Light bitterness to the finish.

Medium bodied and smooth with a moderate carbonation.

A very nice APA from 4 Hands. I've enjoyed many of these boys.

Pours a hazy, gold color. 1/2 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, citrus hops, floral hops, and slight alcohol. Fits the style of an American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus hops, sweet malt, hint of alcohol, hint of earthy malt, and hint of caramel malt. Overall, great appearance, good aroma, blend, and body.

Poured into a pint glass from the tap. Brewed for Pi Pizza.

The beers pours a very nice hazy but rich orange color with a nice 1 inch white head. It has great bright citrus colors all around.

Nice citrus aroma. Notes of orange zest and grapefruit that are nice but not too intense.

Definitely a hop heavy APA that takes care not to destroy the palette. As the nose indicates there is some nice citrus kick to it. Refreshing and bitter with a dryness that cleans the palette and makes me ask for more. There is some nice resinous and slightly sweet pine notes ob the back end as well. Very appealing. It reminds me a bit of their sky rye but with a bit lower octane level. The hop bite is still there though very nice and balanced. Crisp clean and refreshing.

Very good brew. A solid pale ale offering ‘cuz its a bit more approachable but keeps a good edge.
