Dull and cloudy golden, decent lacing white head. Blistering bitterness, fuzzy and stops short of being overpowering. Taught, fibrey tropical fruit meatiness and an ethereal sun warmed cut grapefruit lift throughout. Pine and suctionless malt boost to the middle - smooth tang to the overall mouthfeel. Creamy and still towards the finish, soft dry curtain call on a rich APA. ekstedt (6932) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2014
