3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 3/6/13 .. 9 days ago.. Not bad.
Picked this up at the COOP tonight for about $5... poured into my HotD goblet... Good 1 finger white head sticks around for a bit and leaves decent spotty lacing. The brew is polished straw golden.
The nose shows plenty of Citra hoppiness... bright citrus slightly reigned in by something I think smells like pineapple, Brenda says apricot. Soft pale maltiness helps deliver the bountiful hops.
Slightly more bitter than a standard APA, but that is okay... This is a hop delivery device and does the job well.. Again citrus and a light apricot show up.. Good maltiness (perhaps too much mid palate) but it dries out on the finish leaving a great lingering hop profile that begs for another sip.
Very drinkable... light/medium body with a light for the style carbonation... again, I want another sip.
Well done... I wish I picked up another.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured in to a pint glass from a 22oz bottle. Orangeish/gold with a frothy off white head; 1-2 fingers with good retention. Definitely smells like a Citra pale: citrus, peach, honey, piney hops. Taste follows aroma: orange, lemon, peach, piney and a strong biscuity/malt backbone. Medium body, leaves tongue coated with straight bitterness and mouth is dry. Overall, one of the better beers in this category that I’ve had. It’s no ZD, not nearly as delicate. Definitely drinkable and cool that it’s semi-local. Definitely worth trying.
