Fatehunter (1642) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Poured a finger of head on a hazy, medium straw colored body. Great aroma. Bright grapefruit with a touch of pine. The taste is wonderful. Moderate grapefruit bitterness with a bit of honey sweetness in the middle, finishes with moderate pine bitterness. The texture is soft with just the right amount of fizz. Superb.

Bottle. Pours a copper color with white head. Citrus, grapefruit, fresh rainforest vegetation aromas. Fresh hoppy, citrus, grapefruit flavors. Tastes like drinking a beer in rainforest.

notalush (5316) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Light copper with a slight haze - minimal, soapy lace - nose has a bready maltiness to it, along with notes of orange zest, pine resin, a bit of spiciness - light bodied, moderately frothy carbonation in the mouth - flavor is mostly dry and crisp, with some slight bready notes at times - some peppery hop character, a fair amount of citrus, moderate bitterness - long, dry finish, with lingering notes of pepper - a bit thin at times, but a decent, easy-drinking pale.

dfinney23 (2235) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Nice hop/malt balance in this one -- pine and bitter citrus offset with sweet caramel. Light and refreshing while still assertive.

fiveacestx (763) - Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle - cloudy gold with a small head. Has a piney hop aroma and some orange zest on the taste. The body seems a little thin but it’s definitely refreshing. One of the better Alaskan beers in my opinion.

Drank from the bottle. Aroma is primarily citrus from the Citra, but also has some piney notes. Flavor has a nice malt base with a good blend of hops. Medium bodied with light astringency. Overall a very solid APA.
