This is a nice and easy drinking APA. It is slightly hazed orange w/ a thin head of fine white bubbles. The hop character is surprisingly floral given the varieties used, very lavender-like. This is try, crisp and bitter. It’s a medium bodied brew w/ moderate carbonation. Aside from the floral accent, this doesn’t really hold many surprised--not that that’s a bad thing. I could down a sixer of this and there’s plenty of hops and that’s pretty much 100% of what I want from this style.

From tap. Nice frothy white head, copper, color. Yeast, caramel, hints of pine. Light body caramel, bread sweet, slightly dry. Uninspiring.

Light unclear golden color with a fine white head. Ok lacing. Caramel malty, a bit fruity and citric. Medium body. Moderate sweet and a fine bitterness. Average carbonation. Caramel malty, fruity and citric flavor. Quite fresh and nice.
