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.
