A: Copper colored somewhat opaque pour into pint glass with an off white 1.5 finger head. Leaves a foamy ring and mild lacing.
S: Citrusy, pine and floral aromas.
T: Citrus with grapefruity tart and lemon zest make their sharp appearance up front. Slight malt with spiciness in middle with a nice dry hoppy bitter finish. Fairly well-balanced.
M: Light-medium bodied with mild carbonation.
O: A decent APA that is not overpowering in any respect, but is tasty and enjoyable. I would have it again.

This is a good, solid APA, but fairly standard and a bit too sharp.

Copper, it has medium off-white head steadily shrinking to foamy ring and wisps.

Aroma is caramelised grapefruit and orange, grassy and faintly sulphury, caramelised bread crust. Overall, it's very nice, with some good breadth.

Taste is a good, basic pale ale, but not great, simple, and a touch too sharply bitter in the finish. It is minerally, grassy-peppery, yeasty, and dryish up front, with faint caramelised pepper citrus and grassy bitterness, light caramelly sweetness. It is a bit vague and nondescript.

A- Pours a bright copper color with a foamy head
S- Very floral fragrance with some citrus notes and a little piney scent
T- A good balance of hops and malt
M- Easy drinking
O- It's a lot like Sierra Nevada only easier to drink and less spicy. An excellent well rounded beer.
