I’ve come to expect great things from this brewery and this beer doesn’t disappoint. If you love citrusy hops and a bitter beer this won’t disappoint.

This is a very malty Pacific Northwest Style pale with a thick, resiny flavor. Syrup-like mouthfeel, but bitter and bold on the palate. Dark amber color leads topped with a solid white head, which only lasts for a short stint

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

On tap @ Uncle Henry’s Deli. Clear orange colored pour with a white head. Aroma is quite tropical and fruity. Lots of nice pineapple notes. Big grapefruit and orange...a hint of lemon-lime, maybe peaches. Light malt sweetness to the palate. Good pineapple, grapefruit, and orange zest flavors. Sweet peach and a mild lemon-lime soda.

660ml bottle - gift from N&A - thanks!
Massively sticky caramelly aroma. Pure sugary syrup. Plenty of fruit too, but the sugar’s the most prominant feature. Mid orange, huge persistent foamy head. Sweet caramelly body, simple fruity hops too - fleshy fruits. Gentle zesty bitterness. Had this a hundred times, snore - a brew devoid of details and smothered in sugar. Later there’s some marmitey yeastiness both in the aroma and taste.

pours light amber, thin cream head. orange zest, pine, ample bitterness, light undertones of sweetness. plenty of carbonation to keep this train chugging down the tracks.

~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.

Aroma: Citrus hop aroma, with grassy finish. Grapefruit and lemons. Appearance: Beautiful orange to light copper. Persistent creamy white head. Taste: Citrus and hop bitterness dominate. Very well balanced. Malt present enough just to balance only. Grassy hints in the finish. Palate: Effervescent and dry. Head adds creamy texture throughout. Overall: So very refreshing. A well made Pale showcasing the amazing Citra hop. Could drink this all day, everyday.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
