One liter growler thanks to Reggie Dunlap, thanks Kerry! Hazy yellow with fleeting white head. Pleasing nose of lemon, grapefruit and pine notes. Flavor is an extension of the nose with the addition of nice grain, bread type pale malts and dry herbal tones in the finish. Fresh cut grass and the herbal flavor lingers slightly after the sip. Bitterness lingers for a decent amount of time after the sip. I see why the brew master has rebrewed this APA. Highly drinkable and You can knock back multiple glass real easy. I killed the one liter growler with ease.
Personal note: this was my number 100 rate of American Pale Ales and also my 100th rated beer from the state of Pennsylvania.

Growler from the brewery. Pours a hazy pale orange with a white head. Hoppy aroma of grass, grapefruit, tangerine zest. Taste is crisp and slightly bitter with a crisp finish like orange rind. The mouthfeel is like water and the carbonation is high. Super refreshing and an easy drinker.
