Apricot pour,semi translucent, foamy 2 finger white head, laces up nicely in the tulip.

Somewhat floral, white grapes, nectarines, no sense of maltiness.

Western Hemisphere hop goodness: lovely white grape and nectarine, very juicy, no trace of alcohol, superb blend of flavors,nice lasting bitterness.

Mouthfeel is light medium, light carbonation works for this brew.

Sensational APA that highlights the Nelson Sauvin and Motueka hops. Zero Gravity is a quality brewery that doesn't get the love that other Vermont beers receive, and for no good reason. If this exact APA were in a bottle with a Lawson's label, people would be doing handstands. At a mere $9 for a 64 oz. growler fill, this beer is an outstanding value that matches the quality. Highly recommended.
