Poured from 12oz. bottle.

L: Pours a beautiful deep copper with some haziness, great off-white head with solid retention and lacing. Moderately carbonated.

S: Citrus, grapefruit, resiny floral hops, malty bread notes all come through as well as hints of pine and caramel.

T: Slightly sweet caramel and bread, then grapefruit and great floral hop taste with a slight spiciness and some hop bitterness at the finish.

F: Medium bodied, not as carbonated as appearance would suggest. Very smooth and easy drinking in a good way.

O: One of my personal favorite APA's I truly wish this wasn't just a seasonal brew. The balance between the slightly sweet malts upfront and the bitter almost IPA hop finish are incredible.

Tried this beer on tap (Blackbird Cantina Deluxe in El Paso TX) and it is excellent. Not too dry like the sierra nevada pale, not too bitter. Just the perfect balance of skunkiness and breadiness.
