S: Light citrus with grapefruit and lemon combined with cracker malts. A touch of floral hops hanging around in the back.

T: Grapefruit, lemon, and melon. Light cracker malts.

M: Light body with a clean crisp finish. Crushable and would be welcome on a hot summer day.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 16 oz. can into a Funk Brewing Teku glass. No date found on the can.

Appearance: An opaque straw colored body with a bright white head full of foamy soap like bubbles.

Aroma: Citrus, grapefruit and lemon. Biscuit malt.

Taste: A little subdued from the aroma, but plenty of lemon and grapefruit with some melon, but definitely a dry malt finish.

Mouthfeel: Light and easy to drink, sessionable to the end.

Overall: A sessionable beer that drinks easy and tastes great to the end. Several of these can easily be put down at a time with a group of friend or on your own.

Poured from a 16 oz. can into an Industrial Arts pint glass. It pours a golden-straw color with one finger of bright white head and lacing. The smell is rather subdued with biscuit malt, floral hops, and a hint of citrus. The taste is more citrus-forward than the smell with lemon peel, cracker, grass, and a nice, bitter, hoppy finish. The feel is light, crisp but flavorful. It is super easy to drink with its 4.8% ABV. Overall, this is a very good sessionable APA. It may be a half step behind its East Coast rivals Boat and Sneak Box but it's still very good!

Tall can...w/o any dating information to be had.

Pours lighter amber, light haze, delicate and tiny bubble eggshell head, leaves coating low sheeting and plenty of fine lacing all up and down the glass

Fruity and resiny hop nose

Easy drinking sessioner, with light resin, some citrus....tasty ale in a can...gotta love it

I'm not sure if this is actually an APA - Industrial Arts calls it an XPA. To me, it tasted like it was fermented with lager yeast and reminds me a bit of Carton Boat, just with less aggressive hopping. It pours crystal clear with a beautiful light straw color. Super clean and super crisp - nothing fancy, just a really nice beer.

Pours a somewhat clear golden color with one finger of fluffy white head. Wheat, grains, breads Malta, and dough. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Maybe I'm spoiled that APA's are so hippy these days but expected
More from this; was very much like a wheat ale. Still a. Good beer but. It hoppy at all.
