This beer was not well balanced. The hop profile made it taste like grass

Appearance - Medium yellow. Quite hazy. Short, white, foamy head with good persistence.

Smell - Fairly light aroma. Mainly grassy and citrus hops. A little bready malt, too.

Taste - Hops clearly dominate. Seems mostly citrusy to me. Grapefruit and bitter orange. Sweet bready malt is also noticeable. This beer is on the "not so hoppy" side of the APA spectrum. I like the balance.

Mouthfeel - Medium and pretty darn smooth.

Overall - An eminently drinkable APA.

A: A rustic color a slight bit of transparency, this left a nice off white head at the top with some slight lacing around the glass that did not stay for long.

S: Hints of caramel and vanilla up front with the hops very present and slight hints of malt as it warms.

T: This was very well balanced, the nose is almost right there with the taste besides the fact the bitterness takes over, nice warmth from the malts, a slight sweetness on the tail end from what seems to be caramel.

M: Light bodied brew with a good amount of carbonation.

D: This was a very subtle beer, nothing crazy just very simple and to the point with this one, well balanced on the hops and malts.
