Lightweight amber beer with a serious hoppy bite. On tap at the brewery. Darker than some Pale Ales, with a modest foamy top in the pint glass. Lots of flavor for a lower alcohol beer. On the sharp side with just a hint of malty sweetness. Hops totally rule this beer. Very bitter aftertaste. Some resins but mostly just the long grapefruit peel burning. Not much aroma for all the hops.

Brewery says it's brewed with "Golden Promise, Belgian Aromatic, and Honey malts." Hops are Centennial, Cascade, and Summit.

Had on tap at Southern Pacific. Pretty dang good. Very smooth and balanced and drinkable. Didn't have expectations one way or the other and was very happy with this beer. Smells and tastes simple and straightforward, like an APA should be in my opinion. Hoppy, malty and a little bitter and a little sweet. Went great with the banh mi I had.
