A: Pour a clear orange/reddish color. A two finger white head forms with good retention. Rings of lace are left behind.
S: Piny, grassy, floral hops with a bot of a grapefruit kick up front. Bread and biscuit malts along with a caramel sweetness. Enjoyable.
T: Follows the nose with a fairly large hop flavor up front. Pine, grassy, floral flavors. Citrus and grapefruit rind. There is a sharp contrast between the hops and malt. As soon as the hops fade to nothing, a caramel malt sweetness shows up. Along with a bread an biscuit malt flavor. Again, enjoyable.
M/D: A medium body with moderate carbonation. Crisp, clean, and refreshing. Very easy and enjoyable to drink. I can quaff a few without a problem.

Like I have said several times, this is enjoyable. That is it, something that is very good and easy to drink. It goes good with food, and just an all around enjoyable (there it is again) drink. Recommended and well done.

The pour amber and copper with a nice white head. Citrus and hoppy nose with hints of fruit. Taste follows the smell with citrus and floral hops and a little pine. Malt presents is nice. A bitterness that balances it all out. The mouth is mild and has a dry finish. Overall a easy drinking APA that has enough going on to keep me intrigued.
