Served on tap at the SBC restaurant in Southport CT. My server said it would be similar to a Sierra Nevada.

The color was a light copper amber with minimal foam There was a light citrus note in the nose, but it was otherwise clean.

The taste was a watered down APA - kind of like a SN light - there was a light hop in the background, but it never really influenced the taste.

Overall it was Ok - it is certainly drinkable, but don't expect a typical hoppy APA.

A-Pours a murky amber hue. Stingy head leaves nearly zero lacing.

S-Caramel drizzled biscuit. Light, floral hop notes. More malty than hoppy. Nose is not intense but its semi-pleasant.

T-More of the same. Under-baked biscuit dipped with liquified caramel. Hops depict some lightly spicy flower stems and citrus. Straightforward.

M-Not much bitterness. Mostly dry. Alcohol peaks out. Fairly drinkable.

O/D-Run-of-the-mill American Pale. Brewed local so it was worth a shot. WIll not purchase again.

I love this beer. Great flavor and drinkability. The color is a deep copper, with a nice spicy grapefruit and herbal finish. It pours with a tight white head that lasts through out the sesion One of my top ten beers. cant wait for thier seasonals to arive
