On tap at 2014 GTMW, pours a clear amber with a thin head, the aroma has a decent amount of citrus and hops with a nice malt backing, the flavor has a hoppy front end with a well balanced finish of sweetness, but just enough, more hoppy and fruit than anything, not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes. Rcvd in trade.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice somewhat hazy orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light speckled and foamy lacing all around.
The smell had some light sweet citrus also letting in some grapefruit. Caramel malts are there but pretty subdued.
The taste was pure bittersweet all the way through letting the hops dominate over the malts.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there and somewhat sharp but not overbearing.
Overall I say this was a pretty good APA well worthy of having again if available to me.
