COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true amalgamation of unicorn tears and awesomesauce. We start with 2-row, Vienna, and Rye malts to create a bready malt flavor and dry finish to accentuate the hop flavor. We then add Chinook, Columbus, Centennial, Amarillo, and of course, a massive load of Citra hops at finishing, leaving you with enticing aromas of lychee, gooseberry, and passionfruit delivered only by the unique Citra hop. Put this full-frontal assault of deliciousness all up in your grill immediately!

jbruner (3827) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 29, 2016
Pours a chill hazed golden orange on tap with thin white head that leaves good lace. Aroma of nice citra hoppiness, lemongrass and tropical citrus. Taste is a little more balanced with the malt sweetness and rye spice. Dry finish, minimal bitterness, clean and tasty pale ale.

Type: 12-oz. can Glass: Clear 9-oz. plastic cup From: Liquor World in Las Vegas, Nev. Price: $11.99 for a 6-pack Purchased: March 24, 2016 Consumed: March 24, 2016 Misc.: Canned on Jan. 5, 2016 Was really looking forward to this one. It had good reviews on Beer Advocate and reading the back just made it sound better. However, I thought it was canned on Jan. 5, 2016 when I bought it, but when I got home Iím wondering if it was actually Jan. 5, 2015. I donít know. Itís tough to read and decipher. EDIT: Joseph James said on Untappd that they made a mistake and it is really Jan. 5, 2016 Poured a caramel, honey, hazy color with four fingers of fluffy, white head. Lots of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the cup. Lots of circular, foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Great retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 4.00) Smelled a healthy dose of Citra hops, tropical hops, earthy, gritty rye, lemon zest, pulpy orange juice, some dark peach, mango, dark orange blossom, sugary orange wafers and stone fruit. (Smell - 3.75) Taste followed the nose, but maybe slightly better. Got Citra hops, tropical zest, stone fruit, spicy, earthy rye, orange blossom, hints of red grapefruit, pulpy orange juice and lemon. (Taste - 4.00) Light body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, citrusy finish. (Feel - 3.75) This was a pretty good pale ale. Fresh? Iím speculative. Would like to have it fresh for sure sometime to make sure. (Overall - 3.75) 3.87 87 B+

Ernest (7207) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 1, 2016
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (grapefruit), with notes of elderly person and diacetyl. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Inexplicable note of an old personís house, and not much hops (or any other aroma). Very watery. Is this a pseudo-micro made by a macro brewer? Sure comes off like something Coors or Miller would make in the guise of a "craft" brewery. Completely soulless .

ajnepple (4826) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2016
12 oz single, canned in DEC/15 and purchased at the Craft Beer Cellar - Fort Collins. Deep orange and pretty clear appearance with a fluffy, lacy beige head. Pleasant, mostly hoppy aroma of citrus zest, light tropical fruits and a light peppery, rye malt. Similar flavor, mild to moderate spicy hop bitterness with a light toasted grain sweetness. Average bodied and pretty easy to drink. Solid APA overall.
