3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler and served in no-nik pint glass: Clean golden hue with a small but lasting head, spotty lace. The aroma has notes of citric, grassy, herbal, piney and peppery hop esters along with biscuity malts and a touch of earthy yeast character. The taste is moderately hop driven, bitter and slightly fruity backed up by a simple grain bill. Nice hop spice kick upon the finish. Very easy to drink, finished the first pint glass in no time. Clean and dry finish. A solid APA, nicer that it is a fresh example off a tap in sleepy Elkhart.

Sampler. Clear golden pour. Lots of pine on the nose. Pretty bitter with a little bit of sweetness trying to balance. Lighter bodied with a hoppy finish. A good pale ale, nice and hoppy.
