On draft , tulip glass

Slightly hazy, light yellow, white head. Fairly hoppy aroma - citrus mostly. Not really any malt component to the taste. Thinner bodied.

Appearance: Arrives clear and golden with a foamy white head that leaves icicles of foam lacing the pint glass

Smell: Aroma is bready and floral, with notes of hay, lemon and orange zest

Taste: Bready flavors forward, with hay, pineapple and lemon developing; the finish is dry with a hint of orange pith

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: Nothing spectacular; just a good, straightforward APA

L - dense white head atop a near-transparent yellow body.

S - corn, pine, grass, dirt, funk, floral, a little citrus. Hmmm.

T - floral and earthy hops with a touch of grapefruit. Pineapple, pine, caramel, bread. Moderate-low bitterness. Low sweetness. Low booziness.

F - medium-light body with average carb.

O - If I had tasted this blind, I would have guessed IPL as opposed to APA.

Canned on 7/12/18

Pours a light gold with a strong, foamy white head a good finger and a half large; beautifully effervescent and excellent longevity for both the cap and its lacing.

Aroma is soft and floral, with notes of light hay, bready malt, and pure, raw hops that smoothly give way to citrus rinds and orange zest; some nice complexity here.

Taste is a great balance of floral hops and bready malts; I’m getting plenty of grapefruit, bread crusts, flower petals, orange peel, pineapple rind, lemon zest, and dry pine, all of which come together nicely.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with an excellent tendency towards crisp and dry; the medium-level carbonation meshes so well with these elements, and gives great impact to a beer clocking in under 5%.

Soft and easy every day-type of drinker with some intriguing nuances to it. I really like this one as a good, well-crafted, lighter take on a pale ale.

16 oz can traded from brutalfarce.

Pours a somewhat clear, somewhat hazy bright yellow color with a creamy cap of 2 fingers.

Aromas are of bright fruits - mango and grapefruit, slight papaya, slight unidentified tropical fruit.

Flavor has a sharp cutting bitterness straight through the profile, surrounded by pine, cut grass, grapefruit rind, and faint papaya.

Feel is crisp and somewhat clean, a full thick mouthfeel and buzzing carbonation on the end with slight lingering resins.

Overall a pretty decent beer but nothing I'm a huge fan of. They've done much better work.

Quite smooth and easy to drink. But has rich bitterness and sweetness. Great for breakfast? and lunch.
