Draft at Blue Dog. Pours semi-hazy medium copper with white head. Nose is pale malt, hops, citrus. Tastes citric, with pale malt, some apricotty fruitiness, and finishing hops. Not nearly as much of a hop bomb as the daisy cutter, but a solid APA.

Growler picked up by pantanap for me while I was out of town and delivered this last weekend. Thanks, Kan! Pours a fiery orange amber hue, dulled, with an offwhite almost yellowish head, moderate sized dies to a thick film, small with a good lacing. A good bit darker than Daisy Cutter.. Hmmmmm. Aromas are a nice bouquet of citrusy lemons, oranges, and grassy hops, fuzzy peach, tangerines, and grapefruit come in, a touch of tropical fruit. The nose is quite rich and hoppy, very fruity with pale malts, bread, biscuits coming in behind. Really like this nose, fresh and vibrant. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, some very fruity hops, grapefruit and peach, with some touches of mango, grass, and earth. A decent bitterness grows into a moderate dry and bitter feel, with pale malts, toasty bread, biscuits. Lighter bodied overall, a nice hop profile and flavor, lighter bodied really wins me over. Touches of gumball, tropical fruits, citrus, peach. Dry and soapy. Really nice, easily quaffable. The head really sticks around, surprising for a growler almost a week old. A great fruity hop forward APA, it’s fairly complex in the hop profile, light and sessionable for the most part. It’s not quite among my favorites.. But it’s really good and fresh. A perfect "Come on and get here, Spring" beer. Very happy with this, the hop profile grows, bitter and soapy, dryness grows on the palate. A bit better, freshness probably the key, than DC in my opinion. But, it gets a similar score.

Growler. Pours amber with white head. Darker than dc/malt twin? Aroma has juicy fruit and citrusy hop notes, toffee sugar notes. Flavors has sweet cotton candy balanced by grapefruit and juicy fruit hop notes. Finishes like dc. Aggressive bitterness here but crystal malt is tasted reminds me of a drier SN torpedo and I’m not buying this is just daisy cutter malt bill with change of hops. Why is this so red?
