ben4321 (5773) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Location: Draft at Ginger Man, 5/18/13

Aroma: The aroma of this one has some citrus fruit hops, grainy malts, and a bit of spice
Appearance: The pour is a hazed golden-orange color with a small white head on it
Flavor: The taste is a little sweet, grainy/bready, with a light-medium hop bitterness as well
Palate: The body is fairly light, it is easy to drink, with a smooth, and clean finish
Overall Impression: I thought this one was a pretty solid APA, but not a standout. The flavors are solid, but maybe a tad light. Overall, it still works nicely as a light, drinkable summer beer.
