Half pint at the Rake. Served in a small goblet. Amber colour, hazy, decent sized head, good lacing. Aroma was off fruit and malt. Tasted malt and cranberry, corky finish. Less hoppy than expected. Smooth, thick texture, low carbonation. Overall passable but more malt forward than expected from an APA.

A - Clear copper body, thin white head has good retention and lacing.

S/T/M - Hops up front, with resinous pine, slightly floral. Biscuit, bready caramel malt body stays light in body and carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel, finishes crisp and clean. Very light and drinkable.

O - Maybe a little thin on feel and not a ton of complexity, but this is extremely drinkable and refreshing. I'd get it again.

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer and left some nice lacing on the glass. It is a hazy copper color with some clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Some light grapefruit, fruitiness, bready, and caramel malts.

Taste: Same as above with more citrus, creaminess, and bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, low to medium carbonation, medium bodied, a little chewy, and easy to drink.

Overall: A nice APA from DE. Will have to look for more of this next time I am in the mid Atlantic area.
