MaltOne (281) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2013
Pours copper-gold, white frothy head. Aroma is faint in general, - grapefruit citrus, with a shortbread undertone. Taste follows suit, with a nice warm, malt framework for a clean hop-bitter finish. It has a bit more substance to the mouthfeel than most APA. Not particularly complex, but the balance hits my preferences very well - clean, refreshing, with a lttle substance. I don’t know but the water may play a part in this - never considered that before.

Hazy, light gold pour with a frothy, white head. The aroma has faint citrus and bread. It has a medium body with smooth texture and average carbonation. The taste is bittersweet with a quick, easy finish.

Almost an IPA. In fact, I would call it an IPA. The hops and bitterness are there, just not the ABV. Quite good.
