look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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 citrus 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 gets clouded by some earthiness by mid taste. This earthiness leaves a bit of a dirty feel on the tongue in the finish, so I'm not too fond of that. Feel is soft with a light bitterness that lingers in the finish mostly.

This is a full flavored beer that has a complicated taste profile - some good some not as pleasing. This one is maybe 2 months old so maybe that is a factor here? Foam does so much good its tough to downvote but this is really not in an top list for me from them.

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.

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!!

Refreshing session ABV. Fruity bitter, but light on the hops as are most pale ales.

Nice little hazy session beer. Great golden color with lovely pillowing head. Sticky too.

I get some candy off the nose - almost citrus skittles along with some tart malt tones. Crispy and fruity.

Taste is a nice and tangy without much bitterness but plenty of dryness in the linger. Notes of pineapple and wheat are unique. Flavors pop for such a tight package.

Very coating mouthfeel, but not so much that it is viscous. Flavors wash in the mouth heavily and the dryness keeps it from being too sweet.

Nice beer - like it and think it is very drinkable.
