Bottle. Hazy copper with a big pillowy white head. Aroma is fresh cut grass, pine and lemon. Taste adds lots of grapefruit and melon. Sweet caramel malt and lightly bready finish. Silky smooth mouthfeel that finishes with solid carbonation. I like the way this is put together. Simple and classic.

pours a medium orange with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of bitter citrus peel (a lot of grapefruit and tangerine) resinous pine, herbal and flowery hops, sweet bready malts, and some caramel. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with a lot of bitter citrus. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, medium long finish. Overall, a pretty nice APA that features the Citra hops nicely.

~Strong floral hop aroma with grapefruity/tangerine like citrus, resinous. Bready malt character. ~Pours a slightly hazy golden color with lasting dense creamy off white head. ~Tangerine citrusy hop flavor, resinous hop, bready malt. ~medium full bodied, medium CO2, lingering resiny hop flavor. ~Enjoyable. Interesting aroma and flavors from a single hop. Pretty simple beer, but refreshing and tasty.

This is a great IPA. Not bitter in the least. Slightly cloudy golden color. Creamy texture. Apricot taste in the background. Again, not bitter. Head stays to the end. My favorite IPA.

Aroma of citra hops amber coloured, not much head. Bitter taste with a bitter palate. Not much complexity to it.

Flowery aroma and a golden color. Hoppy front end with it lingering on the palate. Not bad.

22oz bottle - I really wish this was available in 12oz bottles/6-packs because this would rival SN IMO, and is a better option. An aggressively hopped beer, balanced by a nice showing of malts and barely balanced enough to call it a pale ale. Aroma is incredibly citrusy and it doesn’t stray too far from that. Clean, refreshing bitterness on the palate, lots of citrus and hop resin, subtle piney sap too. The malts provided seems to also give it a tropical fruit-like taste at times. My only issue is the price, and I’m sure there’s tons of hops used in the beer but because of the price I don’t get to visit this as often as I would like.
