a neat dry hoppy hazy pale here, some new zealand hop varietals leading the way from what i can tell, an awesome fruity nose on it and a tasty beer overall, but a little starchy and dense for all day drinking, and with just a touch of that green hop bite to finish, not quite as well refined as i was expecting from these guys at this point, and frankly a little bit raw, but its hard to argue with this hop profile, and i enjoyed this pretty well overall, a nice lake breeze blowing through their well shaded front patio didnt hurt either. i get lemongrass, kiwi fruit, french melon, starfruit, lime, and mandarin orange from the can in the nose and taste, some summery white wine notes too, a light grassiness and freshness to the whole thing, it tastes just a little green, but the fruitiness of the hops is awesome, some sativa and soft citrus at the climax, more tropical on the swallow, really pretty compelling stuff, and almost all post fermentation it seems, as the bitterness here is quite low. this is really close to being something special, but just lacks a certain level of refinement. i like the earthy grains, the overall dryness, yet also the fluffy body that they provide. the hop profile is exceptional, notes of nelson but id love to know what they use, and a beer i thought i would want to drink all afternoon but ended up being one and done with. its never been the hoppy stuff that has turned me on the most here, but this is solid all in all.

On tap, loads of citrus, fresh cut hay. Bright yellow matches bright yellow citrus flavor. Beer is clean with moderate carbonation, soft and just under medium body

Can courtesy of yllib.
Pours a fairly light orange-yellow. Very hazy. Thick white head.
Tropical fruit aroma. Actually bringing out bananas and mangos.
Tastes like a quenching mango juice. Not exactly but that’s what is feels like. There’s are tropical and citrus notes. Vinous grape notes.
Mouthfeel is perfect not being thick or watery. Highly carbonated!
Solid. More satisfying and thicc than many “hazy” ipa’s.

Has a pleasant dull gold color, cloudy with a sudsy 3 finger head that retains fairly well, leaving spotty lacing. Aroma is in the bright floral lemon range with a touch of something more tropical sweet in the background. The taste is pretty full for a light-end pale ale. There is tangerine and lemon up front that with a dry white grape by mid taste that continue into the finish. Feel is soft with a light bitterness that lingers in the finish mostly.

This is a full flavored beer that has a complicated, maybe aetheral taste profile.

12 oz. Canned on: 5/2/19
Opened on: 5/14/19 Fresh

A light, fizzy appearance. White gold and straw color. Heavily tinted. A fizzy white foam forms to cap it off, but quickly departs and fades.

The nose has a heavy citrus and melon hop aroma. Wet grasses, wheat and earthy sourness underneath. Big nose.

The hop complexity and depth of flavor is pretty big for APA. The citrus and lush fruity aspects are way beyond. The malt is light but nicely grainy, yet..light in overall effect. The hops are in charge, with almost zero bitterness, although pretty dry. Lots of dry earthy, peppery flavor's and lemon zest kick to make it interesting.

The mouth feel is crispy and dry, then full and smooth, fades out light and airy in the finish.

Not your father's, or older brothers
APA!!
