Urban Legend - The Wire Transfer - APA 2-Row Victory, Munich, and Melanodin malts and Warrior, Zythos, Columbus, Centennial, and Chinook Hops.
This APA is extremely flavorful due to the difference of ingredients that just clash around perfectly.
Serving Type; Bottle for this one but had it on tap, about the same.
A Fairly translucent, there's a haze but not much. Coloring is spot on with a deep gold-amber.
S Lemony citrus with some orange. Bit of pine.
T Pick up on that pine with a citrus backbone. All i can think of is zest, that word seems fitting.
M Non acidic for all this zest, Crisp and lightly filling. Seems really nice come summer.
O Had it at the brewery first, bought a bottle, tap was better but not my much at all, maybe just the freshness factor. I like these guys, they are close and creative. Excited to see what comes next!

A: Really clear with a light copper hue and nice big head with long lasting frothy head.

S: Strong tropical lemony aroma with some grass and some dank piney notes that give way to a sweet malt aroma.

T: Lemon zest up front with some pine, then a really nice malt bready flavor.

M: Seemed a little light but that could be partially to due with the carbonation being a little on the low side.

O: Haven't had too many Urban Legend beers yet but I really enjoyed this one, really like to see the mouth-feel change a little bit however.
