Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a muddled yellow color with a sly transparency about it. Carbonation was seen slightly rising to feed a level bar pour's kind of slim white head. Not much lace.
The aroma had a some sweet grassy hops flowing over a light citrusy hoppiness. Light bready contour evens it all nicely.
The flavor moderately leaned into the sweetness to make an effort to pronounce the hoppiness but honestly, the more I sipped the more I thought the sweetness stayed in the front for the most part. Aftertaste was moderately leaning towards the breadiness.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt fine.
Overall, pretty nice APA I could have again.

Pretty good. Tastes like how I remember Switchback tasting, back before Switchback got big. A little more pine in the flavor profile though.

On tap at Hinesburg public house. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was basically a bronzed yellow color with a thin bar pour’s kind of head that dissipated immediately. Light carbonation could be seen rising at a moderate pace. The smell had a sweet clean citrus up front. Light sweet grassy hops roll into balance nicely. The taste was mainly the same as the smell. Big malts blend nicely leading into a dry sweet aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation hits nice and low, gets fairly smooth and creamy on the feel. Overall, I say this was a pretty nice blonde ale that I would have again.

Tap at Mountain View Inn.

A nice ale with a light body and the refreshing bitterness that reminded me of a pils. Is this APA made with German hops? IDK. Just has a nice, crisp hop flavor and I liked it.
