12oz can into 16oz globe glass. Straw colored with a touch of haziness. Little lacing, small head.
A: Grassy, with a touch of lemon/citrus. Fairly strong notes of malts.
T: Mirrors the aroma, but a bit muted in the front. A nice wallop of hop bitterness in the back that hangs out for a few.
F: Standard MF, a little softer from the malts, but not too creamy.
O: A good tasting PA, but it's not a must have. The lingering bitterness that is a little overdone.. in my opinion.

My Intro into Wicked Weed Brewing. The first time was great, the second time it lost its luster a bit. Mostly because it is rather pricy in my neck of the woods. Otherwise this is a good "go-to" when it is available. excited about diving into more from WW and I am looking for suggestions?

Clear light golden color with off-white head. Aroma has resiny hops and some orange rind. Taste is hoppy, bitter, resiny, dry and slightly astringent. Light body with medium carbonation. Easy drinking and fresh.

Had on tap, poured a clear deep golden color with an incredibly well retained half in white head that left ample lacing. Smell was on the mild side with citrus fruits, pine and malt notes. Tastes of orange, orange peel, peach, mango, pine and a very nice balancing malt presence. Light to medium bodied, lively carbonation, dry and moderately bitter finish, crisp and refreshing.

A wonderful APA. Gold with a slightly hazy color. Nice foamy head. Aroma was pleasantly citrusy. A great balance of bitterness and malt. A great tasting APA!

A solid APA. Poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass. Golden slightly hazy color. Big foamy head with very good retention and thick lacing on the glass. Aroma was a bit light, some mild citrus hops. Tasted pretty good. Hoppiness and flavor more pronounced than in the nose. Good balance between bitterness and some bready and caramel malt. Mouthfeel is about medium richness but nice and crisp with some good bitterness for an APA. I would drink this again.

A very tasty and hoppy pale ale with a head that lasts for minutes and a crisp lager-like finish. It is flavorful enough but also easy to drink so it makes a nice companion to a meal or food pairing.
