1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle, slightly cooler than room temp. Pillowy head. Mild hop perfume olfactory. A little less bitter than stronger IPA, but ipa ish none the less. Yes, quite hoppy bitter. Barely any co2. Sometimes I can’t tell the difference between a stronger pale ale and a session ipa, go figger.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap at Maumee Bay brewpub in Toledo.
This APA is a deep amber color, probably a little darker than average, and has plenty of hop aroma and flavor. The hop component smells primarily of citrus but tastes more herbal and piney. There’s a malt base in both the nose and the flavor, but this is a hop-forward APA, and turns moderately bitter by the finish.
Medium-light carbonation with a medium body.
O: this APA leans quite a bit in the direction of an IPA, and could pass for one.
