The description on Karben4 beer list is a mix of hops and sugar cookie. I had my doubts but low and behold, hops up front, with a lingering aftertaste of sugar cookie.

I originally had this on tap in 2015. Time to see how it fairs in a bottle.

Poured 12oz bottle into a snifter. Golden apricot color with a nice 2 finger white head that fades slowly and leaves a good amount of lacing on my glass. Aromas of orange and grapefruit mingle with sweet mango and pineapple, with a touch of light caramel malt to round it out. The flavor builds on these bright fruity notes with the tropical hops and lightly sweet malts. The balance of sweet and bitter is really, really good. The body is fluid, light-medium weight, with a more than sufficient carbonation and it does finish dry. I think this is their best APA.
