3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark golden with a medium creamy white head that retains fairly well and laces the glass.
The aroma is sweet bready malts and some fruity hops and a little pine.
The flavor is sweet bready malts with a medium fruity floral bitterness. The mouthfeel is a bit light and watery.
Overall, a surprisingly good APA. It’s an APA so not over the top, but is well made and well balanced.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer poured hazy yellow with a 3-fingered head. the aroma was hoppy with pine and citrus notes. The flavor was a nice hoppy and malt balance with citrus (grapefruit) and pine notes, the bitterness was not overwhelming. There was a good palate that the bitterness does not detract from. Overall a well balanced and drinkable PA with an interesting hop character.
