3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle picked up at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy, copper colored body with a thin, creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is citrusy with faded grass, herbal notes, some resins, and florals with a somewhat sweet, bready, crystal malt backing. Flavor is similar. Bitter citruses with some resins, a bunch of florals, and grass alongside a medium sweet, crystal and caramel, somewhat bready malt backing. Finishes dry and bitter, but pretty well balanced with the crystal malts. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent APA that is pretty bitter and fairly citrusy, but balanced enough with a somewhat sweet, crystal and bready malt backing.
