Cloudy pale gold color with a bit of a greenish hue. Rich lasting head. Leaves a blanket of lace.

Fresh hop pellet aroma. Like really fresh -- reminds me of grinding a hop flower.

Excellent pale malt start to the taste with a very pleasant fruity hop touch in the swallow. The aftertaste is balanced and delicious. A really great representation of what I expect from a superb APA. Rich body with ample carbonation. This is a reach for another type of beer.

Lower Depths Boston.

A- Draft pour to a hexagonal tumbler with a very pale yellow body and a slight haziness. Thick and creamy head is over a finger with good retention dropping large sheets of lacing.

S- Fairly tame nose with hops taking a slight central position in the aroma. Those hops are citrus, earthy, floral and herbal grassy in nature. Cracker, bready and slight grainy sweetness.

T- Orange, grapefruit, floral, spicy, earthy and dank herbal hops up front gaining some clout compared to the nose. Balance is provided by a cushion of pale grains and yeast. The latter two donate biscuit, cracker, bread and pale fruit esters.

MF- Body of medium thickness coming down on the taste buds with a creamy and silky consistency. Moderate carbonation and extra smooth. Grassy light bitter finish.

Hop focused with citrus and floral notes up front balanced by pale malts and slight yeasty tones. Very easy drinker and all around pleasant with a small gripe about a white grape ester opening up later on.
