Golden yellow in color with a thin white head. Bright floral hops with some citrus fruits, a nice caramel malt backbone. The flavor is full of hops, pretty surprising for an APA, but great nonetheless. A touch of pine, caramel malts in the back, and citrus hops. A really nice beer.

Draught at Jerry’s in Chicago. Appearance is a slightly mirky golden yellow color with light, off-white head. Aroma is sharp with grassy hops and citrus. Taste is bright with flavors of citrus, orange peal, balanced with grassy hops. Palate is clean and crisp with medium body and pleasant carbonation. Perfect spring and summer beer.

Pours a deep hazy golden with a big fluffy tight white head that leaves a bit of lace. The aroma is bright and floral with a bit of fresh cut grass and a load of fresh hops. The beer is very bitter, almost aggressively so (in a good way) There is a lot of floral, grapefruit, and citrus rind hop character here, but there is a really nice malt backbone that one usually doesn’t find in a beer as strongly hopped as this one. Just a mild malty toastiness shows it’s self throughout, but particularly nicely in the finish. The beer while fruity maintains a nice level of dryness. The palate is a tad on the thin side but the carbonation is spot on. I could drink a whole lot of this.

Aroma: floral and citrus; grapefruit, orange, some bready malt notes. Appearance: light, hazy golden with a thick white head, good retention, lots of clumpy lacing. Flavor: hoppy and fruity, lots of grapefruit, mango, a touch of lemon, light malt character, some sweetness in the background. Hop bitterness is appropriate; there is a punch of bitterness up front, but otherwise not overly bitter, the focus is definitely on hop flavor and aroma. Palate: medium body and carbonation

Boutip (4636) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2011
Tap: Poured a hazy glowy orangey color ale with a nice foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrus and fresh grapefruit notes with loads of aromatic notes is just about perfect. Taste is also dominated by huge notes of citrus and grapefruit hops with a dry caramel malt base that doesn’t overshadow the hops profile. Body is quite full with great carbonation. One of the best IPA that I had the chance to taste recently.

Pint can thanks to Ed. Pours a clear orange color with a medium sticky white head. The aroma is grassy, some soap and citrus hops. The flavor is a smooth and easy citrus, light bitterness, sweet and very easy to drink. Quite nice. Reminds me a bit of Wildfire Pale Ale from Uinta.

Thank you Adam for shipping me this want. I poured the can into a Sam Adams glass it gave off a wonderful big white head that sat on top of a clear golden colored elixir. The hop presence hits you first in the nose. You get a ton of citrus and resin character coming right at you, not much in the way of malts at all. In the taste it reminded me of an IPA so I think if you are looking for a balanced brew this isn’t for you but if you are looking for a hop bomb I highly recommend it. It had a good amount of carbonation so was light and crisp in the mouth. To me this would be a great summer BBQ brew if it was local and available that is Serving type: bottle

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 23, 2011
really fresh pine, almost metallic, grapefruit, lightly earthy and cheesy. Flavor is a bit less fresh, dry with lingering bitterness but a bit undercarbonated. Nice stuff, very well hopped and consistently attenuated for an apa.

Narnad (1448) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2011
Pours a very hazy, golden color with a thick, bubbly white head. Aroma has a very pungent piny and citrus hops nose. Nose overall is very hoppy, dry hopping worked great for this brew. Flavor has a very in your face hop presence. Strong citrus orange combines with a lesser piny and earthy hoppiness at the end. A very light pale malt presence show itself very briefly in the middle. Great lacing on the glass, light body modest carbonation, dry feeling in your mouth. Overall a very tasty beer. The hops smell and taste are absolutely awesome. Tastes very, very fresh out of the can. Thanks to JMerritt for this can.

Very nice, sweet hoppy nose, tons of citrus. Taste is lightly sweet, lightly biter, some light honey notes, some grapefruit and tangerine. Very sessonable and refreshing.
