4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
appearance: clear gold, white soapy foamy head, average lacing. aroma: crackers, floral hops. taste: cereal grain, light honey, floral, grassy hops. finish: clean, dry, slightly bitter. notes: I for one thought this was a tremendously refreshing, full-charactered APA. Great if you want something a little more complex than a lager or kolsch on a hot day. Barrel & Bushel Beerfest 2016.

Poured a yellowish color withi aromas of lit tropical fruit, cereal and some hay. Flavors were grassy hops with feint citrus and cereal and grain, it was clean overall, but felt like it was missing something to make it pop.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 12 oz. bottle.
Lightly hazy, sparkling bright yellow with a 1-finger near-white head and good lacing.
Aroma of cereal, mild floral hops, grass, a little citrus and other light fruit.
Taste of cereal, mild citrus, light floral hops, grass and toast.
Medium body and medium carbonation.
While certainty not in the "great" category, this is a decent American Pale Ale with a bit more hops (and malt, for that matter) than many of the lesser American Pale Ales.
