Crushed at GABF í10. This is possibly the most floral beer I have ever had. Itís like being out in the middle of a field, except itís beer, which makes it better. Tasty, refreshing, and awesome.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drank a few of these over the weekend.
A: Wonderful cloudy and I think unfiltered there are a lot of "floaties" in here along with a perfect level of carbonation. This beer just looks mouth watering!
S: Very citrusy and floral.
T: BAM! as Emerald would say, Wonderful hop character really fresh and refreshing, I canít pinpoint the taste I was getting but I loved it!
O: This was a great surprise to me. I am normally not too big on IPAs and DIPAs but this beer just really opened my eyes to the style and its also the perfect lawn mowing beer.

Can from the very generous CanIHave4Beers. Pours slightly hazy deep golden with a big white head. Lighter than expected. Nose is a great bouquet of hops backed up by sweet caramel malts. Fresh grass, floral notes, citrus. Mild resin. So refreshing and yet so light. This is a great beer.

16oz can from douglas88, thanks
Appearance: Pours slightly hazy golden with a big frothy white head and lots of sticky lacing as it slowly dissipates so can get a drink
Aroma: Tropical fruits, grassy, citrus and some sweet caramel
Taste: Fruity, grapefruit and nice pine bitterness in the finish
This is a great APA. Clean, crisp and refreshing. Wish I had a few (lot) more of these.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz can, as pictured, courtesy of my man Ender....thanks Dave. Pours a hazy, cloudy gold with a long-lasting frothy head. Smell is light and flowery, citrusy...orange, apricot. Taste is superb, and ridiculously easy to drink. This might be the best summer beer Iíve ever had, and is likely the best pale ale Iíve had. Helps that itís barely a week old and the hops are still fresh.

16oz can. Pours cloudy yellow in my mug with thick rocky head. Aroma is is danky citrusy hops, almost IPAish. Body is light to medium. Flavor is very hoppy, but not overpowering with a crisp malt finish. Very nice sessionable pale ale.

I donít know how I havenít rated this beer. This is my go to Chicago tap beer. This one usually goes so fast at all the local bars that its always fresh and delicious. Golden glowing orange color with an off white creamy head. All that citrus, light doughy malts come out in the aroma. The simple straightforward pine/grapefruit/floral/hop resin flavors balance perfectly with the doughy malt. Slightly bitter, but I think its mostly perceived bitterness. When fresh its consistently delicious. Thank you half acre for making this one so readily available and tasty.

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.
