2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark golden-copper color with a smallish off-white head on it. Despite being a little warm (~55F), I don’t get a huge aroma off this; mostly I get a little straw and corn from the pilsner malts, without much from the hops. Taste is actually a little sweet to me, and reminds me much more a pilsner style than an APA. Not terribly interesting to me...

Had on draft at the brewery. Soft hop character, citrus, herbal, bready malt character, very lite beer for HotD. Not bad.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I really enjoyed this. Hoppy aroma with subtleness. Unfiltered golden color or maybe it was just a little hazy. Good white head. Full body without being heavy or bloating. Most of their beers have a creamy smooth texture. Great blend of flavors with grapefruit and other citrus hops. Strong pilsner background with some grainy notes. Really good.

22oz bottle pours a pale golden color without much head. Full hop flavors without anything too intense. So well balanced. My favorite APA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Light straw hue with fizzy white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma of straw, acid,melon, yeast. Mouthfeel is ok with medium body and lighter carbonation. Taste is clean with a sweet initial and bitter finish. Overall, this is a bit earthy and peppery for a pale ale but refreshing nonetheless.
