look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

12 oz can from SC.
Pours with a hazy amber body topped with a durable head.
Moderately strong and hoppy aroma but the flavor is bold for style, leaning towards IPA.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear gold color with a large white head. The aroma is a ton of citrus hops. The taste matches the nose.

Poured from a can into a tulip, toasted tangerine in color with a bright white head, slight lacing.
A fragrant hop waft, lively and citrusy with subtle earthy aromas, notes of apricot and kumquat.
Well balanced with notes of caramel and toast from the malts, hoppy notes orange peel and grapefruit, finishing with just enough bitterness typical of the style. Medium bodied, Light on the residual sugars, reveals a very quaff-able APA.

At 5.2% and available in cans I can see myself enjoying a few of these during the day on a sunny day. Solid, nearly "sessionable" option moving into the summer.
