2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Watery and a bit astringent, this beer is certainly not a 55. Strange hop flavors that were very off par from normal APAs.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper body under a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is rather intensely hoppy for just an APA, and especially intense given what I have come to expect from this brewery. Bright and herbal with some floral notes over a lightly caramel malt base. The flavor is a little lacking in bitterness, but there’s a fair amount of green hop flavor. Pretty well on the drier side, but a little sweetness towards the finish. Lighter bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and some lingering green leafy hops. Meh, there are some good and some bad aspects to this one. Overall a lower tier APA.
