COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Regionally grown American pale malt is blended with rich European malts to produce a lighter bodied beer, bright in color, with a taught white head that keeps track of time as you sip. Then there are the hops – four pounds per barrel to be exact. Willamettes, Cascades, CTZ and Summits give this brew a citrus punch and spicy character that greets you in the nose and embraces your mouth with a clean, crisp bitterness.

Solid. Refrshing, light, packed with citrus hops but not overpowering, medium to low bitterness.

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.

Classic pine and citrus nose. Taste follows suit. Somewhat dry and quite strong on hop bitterness. Overall nice

deyholla (6514) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 12, 2013
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.

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.

Can at yespr. Hazy orange coloured with a small white head. Fruity aroma of hops, citrus peel and pine needles. Fruity flavour of hops, citrus peel and grapefruits. Dry hoppy finish.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2013
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.

Can from Guerde. Pours translucent copper with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is very evergreen. Med body. Flavor is strong resin over tasty caramel. Finishes quite pine and bitter. Tasty. Thanks Andy!

marcus (6364) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 4, 2013
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.
