4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Honey pour with hints of tangerine...ample carbonation with a wispy white head. Bubbles streaming from the bottom of the glass. Grapefruit rind, orange peel, and lemon zest along with a subtle grassiness, earthy notes, floral qualities, and peppery spice. All of the above are included in the flavor. Lots of sharp citrus, evergreen, and tart peach. No honey, no biscuit, no caramel. This is unadulterated hops. Love the aggressiveness...YUM!

Another delicious brew provided by maltzilla. Poured out of growler into snifter. Tons of hoppy citrus aroma. Flavor was earthy and piney with a nice malt backing. Slight grapefruit in there as well. Pretty stellar

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2013 Sampled at the brewery. Pours cloudy golden with a white head. Aroma of a lot of hops plus a good amount of malts. Flavor of a lot of citrus hops. Average to smooth texture. Great.
Edit: Growler in the HF glass. Aroma of so much fruity, floral, and citrusy hops. Flavor a perfect blend of these hops and the malts. A great beer.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a hazy honey/orange color with a medium whige head...nice lacing. Aroma has grapefruit, peach, mango, and nice mild piney notes. Flavor follows suit...great distinctive citrus and stonefruit flavors...just a bit more pine than the aroma suggests...perfect bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is piney/bitter and dry...lingers nicely. Wow! More please.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Massive tropical and grapefruit hops in the nose along with some powdered sugar. Hazy dark yellow under a pristine flannel blanket and lace. Salty tropical and grapefruit peel and pith hops flavour with a very faint plastic note at the end. Moderate bitterness but nice and dry with lingering grapefruit pith is a very good balance to the intense hops flavour. Light body, medium carbonation.

On tap at Hawthornes in Philly. This was really good but I liked the Amarillo APA a bit better. This pours a light amber, closer to orange with a small head. The aroma is very nice with a lot of citrus along with some sweet malt. The flavor starts with the malt and then gets nice and hoppy. A very crisp and dry finish. Very good.
