Draft at the brewpub. Very pretty nose. Some bright fruity hops with a subtle lavender/floral aroma. Pours rich amber with nice lacing all the way down the glass. Only mildly bitter but crisp and refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very nice PNW hopping exhibited in this APA and a bit more bitter bite than generally expected. Medium grapefruit and pine are evident. The suporting caramel maltiness is strong enough to do the job in a very balanced way. Nicely brewed.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
on tap Barley Johns
a burnt copperish color w/ a small white head, good lacing, and visible carbonation. Light floral hop aroma some nice fruity notes as well w/ a touch of sweetness. Palate is pretty avg. Flavor is lightly bitter a dry grassy bitterness which really does dominate a light bit of carmel no real fruit comes through.. Pretty 1 dimensional taste. Easy to drink, and not bad, but not special either.
