3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy yellow with off white head, aroma is simply hops. Taste is the piney, resiny, floral taste that Cascade hops give, with little malt sweetness and a nice bittering. This is a very very hoppy APA, and can tell it was a hop-focused beer. Love it!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This one poured a dark yellow/orange color with a big white head fresh from a growler. Aroma was pretty bitter hop aroma but not much fruityness or pine coming through. Also some sweet malty notes as well. Flavor is sweet malts up front, into some grapefruit citrus flavors, into a very biting bitter flavor. This one is a very hoppy APA
