A wonderful APA with a nice floral/citrus aroma and flavor. The hoppiness really comes through from start to finish.

A good example of a west coast APA. Orangish appearance with a large head. A good hoppy flavor with some orange and lemon citrus. Finish was bitter and sour. Good, yes, very good!

An good example of an APA. I felt that it had almost that west coast bite that so many look for.

hazy dark yellow, whispy head, sweet citrus aroma, medium body, good fresh citrus grapefruit flavor, would be great for breakfast, lasting bitter finish

A fairly light pale, even for the style...looks like your everyday lager. The head is frothy and the first sip is creamy. Nothing can hide the citrus hit that follows. You can clearly tell that more than one hop variety is used, as there is no predominance of pine or citrus. This is a pretty potent (and pretty solid) APA.

On tap at Max Lagers. A golden orange pour with a wispy head and light lacing. Floral and spruce aroma. Body is medium and crisp. The aroma prepares you for the flavor. Initial tastes of spicy and floral hops. Nice and bitter. Light grain body but definitely a hop dominated brew. Good one.
