3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a lightly hazy amber with a frothy ivory head. Grapefruit, flowers and a light pine are backed by a nice malt aroma. Medium-bodied and slick with a nice bitter end. Caramel malt up front with citric (grapefruit), floral and faint piny hops taking over until the bitter end. This is a very tasty and well balanced APA. Thanks for sharing this one Don!

Draft at Dewey’s Pizza in Clifton. Light amber color, ample head with good retention, mild hoppy/ citrus aroma, sensation of assertive but not overbearing hops with a hint of grapefruit coating the tongue like pure maple syrup on pancakes. Decent brew.

Pours gold with about a half inch foamy head. Nice mellow piney hops with a slight bitterness. It seemed to smooth out as it warmed up. Altogether good but not among the best apa’s.
