3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Dmac. Pours out an odd orange/rust color with a small white head. Aroma is of some fruity hops, Lucky Charms cereal, and some bread. Taste is of caramel, some light citrus and floral hops and maybe a slight touch of pine in there? Sweetness, bread and a nice lingering bitterness round it out. Definitely a tasty session.

A fairly bland attempt at making an APA. Apparently it is Genesis version 2.0. Maybe 1.0 was better?
