Poured from a 12 oz. bottle at home. Smell is citrus and grapefruit, floral. Pour is a golden hazy body and a white head. It tastes just like it smells. Grapefruit with citrus. Overall this is a great beer...Would definitely try again.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Solid beer, worth the hype. Pours hazy orange with a small white head that disappears quickly. I didnít get much lacing on this either. The nose on this is herbal, pine, mango, pineapple, citrus. Nice fruity hoppy taste throughout. Very smooth, not much bitter that I got. More of a sweetness factor in this. Thought the flavor would burst and pop a little more based on what Iíve read, but overall I wasnít disappointed. As far as APAs Iíve tried, I like only Pseudo ahead of this.

Poured into a sniffer... all grapefruit and citrus in the nose. Nice light fluffy head with a golden hazy body. This beer doesnít dissapoint. Falls just shy of an ipa, showcasing everything that we have lost in pale ales. This hits all the way in the back of the jaw. An excellent beer.

DAMN!!! This is some great stuff! Has an aroma that is reminiscent of B.O. But the flavor is sweet and hoppy and citrusy. LOVE IT! Super smooth too.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cold bottle, 2 months old. Pours dark orange, hazy, slightly sparkling, minimal white head. Aroma - orange pith, slight pine. Body - medium, quite foamy in the mouth, carbonation is medium to high. Taste - sweet, musty caramel, pine, grapefruit, peppery finish. Good balance. Overall - an accomplished pale ale. Nothing too special at 2 months old, but I donít think I could get it any fresher in the UK.

Sampled @ Hunahpu Day 2014. Iíve wanting to try this for quite a while and finally had it and it didnít disappoint. Pours hazy orangish color with off white head. Aromas of citrus and pine wit a hint of malt. Grapefruit and pine flavors with moderate bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation. Very nice.

Very nice APA. Good balance and strong malt backbone. Aroma is slightly citrus sweet. Taste follows. Not as crisp as a psuedo. Dark amber in color, I prefer more orange. Bitter aftertaste does not stay around too long which is good.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy golden orange with a semi dense white head. The nose on this is bonkers. Just the perfect ballance of aromas. You got crispy herbal pine along with fruity mango, pineapple and abricot. The mouthfeel is on the lighter side which is great. Drinkabilty is high and I like that in an ipa. The flavours are well ballanced too and the best part is that thereís not much bitterness in the finish. Just fruity hoppy goodness all the way to the bank.

Bottle shared by Andre -- thanks! Hazy, gold with white head. Aroma is huge on citrus, pine, tangerine. Big big fresh aroma. In the mouth, the body is surprisingly light. Very dry, moderately bitter finish. A little caramel malt underneath. Now that Andre mentioned it, thereís mustard in the finish. Weird, but hard to shake now. Overall: damned nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Mikkeller Online Shop. Amber, moderate hazy body, with big, creamy, white head, that leaves a good lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine, peach, candy, grass. Tastes of lemon peel, peach, pine, grass, biscuit, some candy sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, with a medium carbonation and it finishes smooth, medium bitter, dry, with citrus and pine notes. Well, the aromas are really tasty, clean and fresh, but still not exceptional, youíll find this in many beers nowadays. I think the reason why this is rated so high is because it is a perfect, classic example of a modern Pale Ale, with an incredible balance. But I have to admit, that Iíve had equal or even better ales that are rated lower, as they donít have such a big name. Whatever, overall it really is a great beer that surely deserves the hype.
