Kroney (200) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 4, 2015
Bomber poured into pint. Aroma is really lacking some hops, but the overall balance and smoothness of this APA is phenomenal. This is literally the definition of perfection for someone thatís not really into the hop forward craft beer movement. Almost has a Belgian quality to it.

PhillyCraft (3963) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2015
Sample tried at p house care of Marcy. Pours golden orange color, with medium head. Notes are overly malty, lagery, and boring but I guess they were going for a basic malty pale ale. Light bodied with medium carbonation. Didnít order one, stuck with nelson and hoppy birthday. Notes were toast, bitter hop, corn, and caramel.
