25oz bottle courtesy of Wasatch. Thanks John!

It pours a clear gold with a 2 finger head of foam and leaves some nice lacing.

The smell is very nice. Lots of notes of citrus and they are oh so fresh to my nose; it's like they were added as I poured the beer. There's more than a hint or 2 of some malt.

The taste is hoppy but the malt in the smell is there as well and makes for a very nicely balanced brew. The hops have some citrus and a general but enjoyable bitterness. The malt stands proud with some sweet notes...damn tasty.

A nice creamy mouthfeel here with a medium body and lightish carbonation.

This is a very enjoyable APA. I dig it.

Poured from an inch or so above the glass give this beer a really big off white head that falls into a a pretty decent lacing above a clear honey golden colored beer.

The aroma has a definite hops ring to it with a lot of citrus coming through, but I really couldn't break it down to lemon, orange, or whichever. In addition to the nice citrus hops there is also a little floral hops along with just a hint of yeast.

The taste is a nice subdued citrus and floral hops with just a hint of malt coming through.

A dry aftertaste with a lacing of hops to it on this medium bodied beer.

A very nice drink, a definite hops beer that doesn't overwhelm you, definitely worthy and worth a try.

25oz. Bottle

Pours a very nice slightly hazy golden yellow/orange color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice two-finger thick/creamy off-white head, with lots of sticky lacing left behind. The nose is hoppy, with a very nice malt blend, slight citrus note. The taste is very nice, hoppy, with some nice malt notes, with a nice sweetness, nice citrus note. Medium body, kinda chewy, with a nice bitter finish. This one really surprised me, very nice enjoyable brew.
