The colour is gold (8 EBC), the liquid is clear. The finger-thick head quickly sinks to a thin white lid leaving just some lacing.

The smell is light and somewhat dry. Wheat flour, mangoes, some citric fruits. The profile and strength reminds more of a British bitter (with some new world hops) than an APA.

The taste is bitter with quite a lot of crystal malt sweetness. Some murky-woody notes and hints of dough and toffee. Light body. The bitterness fades quickly, transforming into a sharp chemical flavour and some more wood. The finish is chemical and malty.

The carbonation is medium strong, the small bubbles sharp and short-lived. The liquid is light to mid-smooth.

No, this is not by any standard a good APA.
