3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours out a pale slightly hazed yellow with a small scummy white head. The aroma and flavor are both dank pine, but fairly subdued. Nice light mouthfeel. This is an APA where the first A stands for "adequate".

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a yellowish straw from a bottle. Not much to speak of here, on the bitter side, not much malt to balance it out, not getting too much in the way of aromatic hops either. Meh.
