Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a cloudy orange with small white head. Nose showcases lively citrus, some tropical fruit and light malt. Taste is much the same. Citrus and tropical fruit dominate with a grapefruit bitterness lingering. Really good apa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

slowrunner77 (464) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 15, 2014
A solid APA that is a little IPA leaning, but manages a gentle balance that most IPAs do not. Lots of citrus and some pine on the nose. Carmel and bready malt backbone. Lingering bitter finish. 6-packs, too

Drake (8300) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 15, 2014
12 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse, opened 5/13/14.. Pours a hazy orange color with a large foamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of big citrus hops and pale malt. The taste is citrus hops, pale malts, a bit of a tropical vibe. Medium bodied, strong lingering bitterness, simple, well balanced.

Bottle pour. Opaque golden orange with fluffy head. Full nose of tropical fruit, lychee, and cracker malts. Lush. Light body. More tropic fruit, apricot. Lingering mild bitterness on finish. Fun.

Zymurgeist2 (982) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Bright citrus and a malted wheat background in moderate support. Beautiful hazy orange with a moderate white head that lingers and leaves slight webbing. Taste is orange and slight lemon, with white bread-like grain. Moderate high bitterness for style and a quick finish with some latent juiciness.

travita (3913) - Frisco, Texas, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle. The look is clearish but with some chill haze, off white ok head, and a nice popping bright pumpkin color. The smell is nice, super fruit, fresh, mango, pine, pear, and inducing. The taste is crisp, hops, bitterness, fruit, pine, and good.

badhack (303) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 25, 2014
I’m not sure what the line between APA and IPA is, but this one blurs it. The aroma and taste are delicious, that of citrus and tropical fruit and a fairly well masked but solid malt backbone. Biscuit toast, malt, medium body. The finish is hoppy and bitter. At 6.5% this is not sessionable, but it is cloudy as hell, so bottle conditioned as usual.

DocLock (7826) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours turbid orangy straw colored with off-white head. Nose is hopcitrus, floral, tropical frui. Tastes hoppy, citric, with notes of tangerine, tastes like juicy Citra hops, and a crisp, explosive hop and citrus finish.
