On tap, pours a murked out golden color with thick lacing, and medium to large fluffy white head. Aromas of flowers, dank hops, orange skins, resinous pine, and caramel malts. Taste was very layered with orange, grass, caramel, and other grapefruit citrus notes. Very easy drinking American Pale Ale. I can see why it is getting a ton of hype all over the country.

Hazy golden pour thin off white head ...... aroma is strong and of citrusy lemons, tart grapefruit and oranges ..... taste is tangy, citrusy and rindy with lots of lemon, grapefruit and some orange ... hopped like a west coast ipa with a rindy dank onslaught of hops .... thin bodied and very easy drinking with a huge hop and citrusy punch little grainy malty on the backbone .... finishes dry with lingering citrusy flavors .... solid stuff

Draft at UJs. Poirs a hazy pallow to orange with nice head that lingers. First sip is citrus like close to lemons with sweet pale malt balancing finisn is nice mild bitterness. Great for the style.

Might be my favorite Pale Ale ever. Just full of dank hops. Almost like a West Coast IPA. Love it.

"Acquired this in a trade in exchange for a can of Heady Topper. Poured into a Hill Farmstead glass at 39 Degrees F.
A - Super intense gold color. Pretty hazy with lots of bubbles going on. The head was about 1.5 fingers with super clear bubbles. I think this is bottle conditioned. The bottom of the can pour had a lot of sediment that floated around and settled.
S - HUGE citrus notes, some pine and some melon. Lots of fruit in the smell and yeah, the hops explode on the nose. I think the citrus is 50% lemon, 10% orange and 40% grapefruit.
T - Tons of hops in this but it’s not overpowering like Hopslam or Heady Topper. The hops fade away almost instantly revealing the pineyness and citrus notes. I’d say the finish is pretty disappointing. It doesn’t finish too well.
M - Disappointing mouthfeel. No carbonation to speak of and the lingering taste is disappointing.
O - It’s a very light beer that I’d take fishing but wouldn’t pour into a glass. I’d drink this from the can while fishing. The smell and taste are great but not a beer I’d seek out again."

A tasty brew that follows the tradition of an American pale ale. Slight piney aroma which is stronger in taste. Interesting that it comes in a tall boy can

One of my favorites on a hot summer day. A super drinkable brew with nice hops, pine, and grapefruit notes. And I do love drinking tallboys.

Aromas of bong water and grapefruity hops. Pours hazy yellow with a rocky white head and legs of lacing. Packed with aroma and flavoring hops, this beer keeps the hops in front but is backed by a pleasant light malt. Never passes into aggressive territory. Well done.

On tap at Capone’s. Typical aroma from a west coast apa. This is very fruity and expressive wow. Very good balance between fruity notes, average bitterness and the honeyed cereals. Drinkability is very high. Very nice.
