This beer isn't an American Pale Ale ... This is a lighter bodied beer and if anything would be closest to a blonde .

It's not made with noble hops - cascades through and through.

For what this beer trying to reach or taste like is awesome smooth , crisp , clean , just enough hops and most of all drink ability.

It tastes like 2-Row some Light Crystal and Munich to produce the crisp dryish finish

A - Honey amber with a nice white head no lacing.

S - Does not smell like an APA smells yeasty

T - Some citrus hops and a good malt foundation. There is a very strange taste. I am going to guess that it is the yeast? Not sure.

M - Medium bodied

D - This is not a very good beer.

This isn't a horrible beer but it needs some work.

Pours a hazy orange color with a really faint head.

Don't notice much in the way of aromas... maybe a hint of orange citrus.

Flavor is quite mild. A touch sweet and fruity like with a crisp finish. It's not bad tasting, but it's really bland.

Mouthfeel is a bit thin, watered down.

Drinkability? Fine, I'll finish it, but I don't care to have another. Nothing offensive, just really blah.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

A - Medium orangish brown color with not much of a head despite an aggressive pour. Looks decent in color, but is lacking in carbonation.

S - West coast hops covering a sweeter than expected malt profile. Nice interplay between sweat and roasted grains.

T - Pretty good. Like the smell, it is a fairly sweet brew, but there is a noticeable hoppiness that follows the hard candy sweetness. Finishes with a nice balance between sweet and bitter, with no hint of dryness.

M - Serverly under carbonated. A bit watery because of that.

D - Meh. I wouldn't seek it out.
