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.

Golden pour with an average white head. Aromas of grapefruit, earthy hops. One of the more hop forward in the APA style. Very good palate. A good session beer with a lot of flavor. Reminds me a bit of Moon Man from New Glarus. Perhaps not quite to that level, but pretty spectacular beer here for my first taste indeed.

Lectvay (112) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Bright golden pour. Aroma is huge, intense, hoppy. Smells like a top shelf DIPA. Taste is bitter and a little acidic. A tad watery, missing something. Still a solid beer, but my nose deceived me.

Draft. Pours clear dark golden. Nose is nice tropical. Taste is sweet malt and pineapple. Nice bitter aftertaste.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2014 Nice aroma, not overpowering, very nice overall. Just the right amount of hop bitterness. Well balanced. I enjoyed this one a lot. Somewhat hard to find, though. Would buy it again.

GreatDane1632 (312) - Louisiana, USA - JUL 7, 2014
A pretty solid, if unremarkable pale ale. Solid hop profile, even better malt backbone. Could enjoy multiples for sure.

Got this in a trade. Apricot beige appearance, light tropical nose, white head, smooth, holds up well, good mouthfeel, low bitterness.

Hazy dark appearance. Resinous hops. Middle and finish are grapefruit pith and citrus. A little more treble in a very bass ale would make it perfect.

bluemooner (600) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Pours a hazy golden with a medium, white head and some lacing. Aroma is citrus hops with malty notes. Flavor is malty with some nice hop bitterness and grapefruit notes. Medium body with medium carbonation. Pretty good pale ale.

Can. Looks just awful, tons of floaty chunks, yet...it’s canned on date is less than 2 months old, bought at Blue max. Powered through and its a really nice citrusy, lightly pine, sweet beer that i will just drink the rest from the can.
