12 ounce can. Pours a fairly hazy orange color with a medium white head. A nice bursting orange and tangerine nose. Very smooth and flavorful: rich citrus, lemons, bitter orange peel, some light biscuit, a bit of bitterness but more smooth fruit. This is a damn good Pale, what a turn, now we have a few world class lower gravity brews like this coming out. Zombie Dust still rules them all, but this is excellent. I could drink a few liters.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can thanks to a trade! Pours a near clear amber orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a combination of citrus and pine with a hint of onion and a grain backbone. Flavor has a light citrus and grass note with a touch of onion and a slightly sweet grain backbone.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In short: A very bitter fruity/citrusy pale APA for hopheads.
How: Can 12oz. Consumed fresh a week after receiving it from oakbluff, thanks a lot Scott.
The look: Clear golden-orange body topped by a persistent small off-white head.
In long: Nose is bright and fresh fruity hops with mandarins coming out strong along with some tropical and exotic fruits. Taste has pleasant honeyed cereals, a lots of hop-related fruity flavors, an assertive citrusy bitterness of medium-high intensity, a sharp citric/lemony bite, a bit resinous in the after-taste. Medium body, a bit oily and with a medium carbonation. Overall clean and polished. Very tasty beer, actually if anything this APA is too much of a palate destroyer to be truly sessionnable, most IPAs are less aggressive than this APA. This is a beer I drank a while ago, I’m slowly entering my backlog, I’ve been sober for 14 days now, not consecutive though, here and there in the past 10 years, still pretty impressive imho.

This is a really good pale ale. Looks and smells like what you would expect, maybe a little more hop-forward in the nose, but the flavor is outstanding. The real trick here is that they’ve managed to push the upper limits of hoppy bitterness for the style without sacrificing the balance and drinkability I want from a pale ale. Bitter, clean, and refreshing. Excellent brew.

Shared by bhensonb. Pours cloudy golden with a thick beige head and a pine aroma. There is a nice mouthful of bready citrus flavor with a dry finish. Has the taste of a pale ale with more hoppiness.
