DOB 09/24/13

A: Pours a golden color with a little over a fingers worth of head that fades down to a cap that leaves some decent lacing

S: Starts off with a good mix of malts and hops. Malts are on the bready and caramel side while the hops are grassy, floral, and lightly fruity. Some yeastiness in there as well

T: Opens the same as the nose, with a good mix of bready, caramel, and lightly spicy malts combined with some grassy and floral hops. The grassy notes continue on with some earthiness into the finish. Very lightly bitter

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A nice, easy-drinking APA with a good malt/hop balance. Nothing too special, but it is solid

This is probably pushing it's best by time with a 5/30/13 bottling date.
Kinda' fizzy loud, white and brief head. Some drippy lacing. Kinda' cloudy and more yellow than amber.
Still a nice hop aroma that isn't that intense and a solid pale malt background.
This is definitely an APA. Well balanced hop and malt flavors with a firm bitterness on the finish. Even with a relatively full gut I still get a shot of warmth. A slight tart character. Minimal sweetness.
Moderate feel and ample carbonation.
Solid. Nothing special, but solid.
