2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
At first seems like a bit of an average APA but didn’t like the soapy/skunky astringency in the taste. Also the hops remind me of Sierra Nevada Pale, which isn’t my favorite style of APA. Upon comparing the hops they use, looks like they both use magnum, so maybe I just don’t like that hop variety?

Lively golden beer with a slight haze to it and a white frothy head. Dry, grapefruity aroma. Flavour is nicely balanced. Dry citrus hop but with a touch of lemony sweetness as well. Feels quite rich in the mouth. It’s not spectacular but it is very drinkable.
