16 oz can shared by EZAnt. Poured a hazy golden orange body with a fluffy average sized white head. Aroma is hoppy as hell for an APA, lemon pulp and zest, earth, yellow grapefruit, dry toast. Palate is pretty nice with a slightly dry finish, medium body and average to a touch strong carbonation, quick fading finish. Flavor is loaded with dry lemon, light earth, white toast, hint of grapefruit. Very nice.

It pours gold and cloudy with a perfect amount of head. It has flowery and citrus smells pouring out of it. Light bitterness with a quick finish. This is a great beer. You must try it if you like pale ales.

Ratman197 (9532) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2011
16 oz can poured a hazy golden amber with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of biscuit, orange zest, pine and light grapefruit. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, grapefruit and light pine with a smoth dry lingering bitter finish.

screigh (444) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 13, 2011
Pours a hazy light copper or darker gold color. Small white head but left some lacing. Hop aroma is great. Mouthfeel is thin. More bitter than I would have expected. Taste is somewhat disappointing after the aroma. Some metallic taste in it.

birderbeerer (112) - Virginia, USA - MAY 11, 2011
Dark golden with a big frothy white head and good lacing. Huge hop smell. Juicy with a decent amount of pine. A clean citrus/flowery hop scent. Very enticing. Taste does not follow the aroma. The taste is heavier on grass and there is a smoky flavor too. None of the juiciness from the scent. Disappointing. Still good, but good because it’s interesting not because it’s amazing.

Dfonorow (1352) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2011
Shared at DLD. Pours translucent golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is of bubbly grapefruit juice, orange peel, and just a touch of flowers. Flavor is quite smooth, but under carbonated, with a citrus and grapefruit finish. Light bodied, refreshing.

beerchugger (708) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - MAY 10, 2011
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.

kjc51478 (383) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAY 8, 2011
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.

CanIHave4Beers (3190) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAY 4, 2011
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.

ekoerper (587) - Iowa, USA - MAY 1, 2011
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
