16 oz can, picked up at the brewery on 1-May-20, poured into a shaker pint glass. Bright and clear golden copper with a solid head of dense white; good retention. Smell of citrus rind (lemon, orange), pine, earthy hops and a hint of malty bread. Taste follows suit with nice pine and citrus hops, just enough malt backbone with a hint of caramel sweetness, and crisply bitter finish. Light to medium body and moderate carbonation. A solid American Pale Ale that drinks well and brings an increasingly less common balance of crisp hops and malt.

4/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Look:
Light copper/gold color. Upon pouring a 1/4" thick foam head forms, lacing is quite light.
Smell:
Sharp, clean citrus hops, but not too strong. Very delightful.
Taste:
Similar to the smell, citrus hops, crisp, not overbearing.
Feel: Medium bodied. Good amount of carbonation. Crisp, dry. Refreshing.
Overall:
I look forward to stopping by Sigma in EADO for an APA any chance I get.

First had this on tap at Hughies, this review is from a Growler from Premium Draught.

A: Pours a light golden/copper orange color. At first a two finger white head forms with good retention. That gently recedes to a ring with a coating of lace left behind.
S: Resiny and fruity hops up front. Citrus and orange rind with also some nondescript tropical fruits. Light piny, almost sap like. Lingering, leafy bitterness with just a touch of caramel malts in the background.
T: Resiny, tree sap like piny hops. Citrus and orange rind again. Just a touch of caramel malts in the background. Almost a woody character with a lingering green tea like leafy bitterness.
M/O: A light to medium body. Very crisp and effervescent. Smooth at the same time. Finishes very dry. Easy to drink, the growler will be gone in no time and this is something I will have no problem getting again while out and about.

The traditional American Pale Ale is all but dead now. This is basically an IPA. Saying that, it is a very enjoyable offering. I do get a pronounced "woody" flavor profile that I have come across sometimes with resiny and bitter hops. Which is not exactly to my liking but never over done. Overall well made and enjoyable. Something I will continue to look for around Houston.

Poured into clear plastic cup from tap, nice 1 finger cream colored head, great retention and nice lacing. Looks amber golden in the cup. Smells dank mango and pineapple. Taste a little caramel sweetness in the front and some tropical citrus and pineapple, finish's with a mild bitterness. Nice mouthfeel

Pours a light burnt orange. Excellent head retention and lacing. Nose is a ton of piney resinous hops and the pallate follows suit, with the addition of a touch of citrus and a light bready malt backbone. Crisp, light body. Great beer.
