Sampled from a growler from the Royersford pub. Excellent APA!! The beer pours a light amber color with a decent-sized off-white head. Inviting aroma of hops, light caramel malt, a hint of grapefruit and toasted bread. The body is deliciously balanced, very smooth and very drinkable. The flavors are incredibly delicious, with lots of fruity and dry hops, along with a balanced flavor of toasted malt, bread and earth. The finish is tasty and balanced, too, with more notes of fruity and dry hops and a nice malty tone. This growler isn’t gonna last very long this afternoon! Very delicious pale ale!

Draft at Royersford, after which I took two growlers home. The pour was dark straw with off-white head, a little haze. Nose was a fresh intense fruity, citric, and floral delight. The taste was crisp, tropical fruity, resiny, and floral. This hop definitely had qualities of Citra, Simcoe, and Sorachi, and was absolutely delicious.
