My Bottom Line:
Citrus fruit galore dominate this IPA’s delicate caramel and honey before resinous moments surge to take control of the finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam laces around the hazy amber-y golden.
-Carbonation is again quite lively here; some breathing makes the pint a smoother drink.
-The hop signature on this one is very engaging.
-Drinkability is enhanced by the overtly citrusy profile.

On tap at the brewpub.

j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 8, 2013
On tap at McKays. Pours a mostly clear gold with a thin to medium sized white head. Sweet malt, light hops, toast and a gentle crispness. There are some buttery notes as well. Medium bodied, lightly sweet. Crisp malt and toast. Easy drinking but not a lot of depth.

(16oz can) clear medium gold, wispy white bubbles. Nose is nice, ginger, spicy hops, grapefruit peel, bitter citrus oils, spicy. Taste is biscuity, malty, like a pale ale with no hops, or maybe more like an ESB. boring.

swoopjones (5329) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2013
draft at Novare Res, Portland. Golden pour, medium bodied. Sorachi was dominant character here. Coconut notes, dill weed, citrusy bitterness. Sorachi was a tad too powerful for me.

Can, thanks to JBPortland! Pours clear orange, medium puffy off-white head, creamy with nice lacing. Aroma is citra baby, mango, grapefruit, dank pine needles, butter. Flavor is similar, a bit buttery with tropical fruit bombs, some pine as well. Not sure what the Sorachi Ace is contributing per se, but this is a pretty tasty beer, better than its ratings. Light sweet and light bitter, with no harshness. Medium body and some creaminess. This is tasty.

Can. Shared by czar, thanks! Hazy golden with a frothy off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of citrus, fresh cereals, malt, light resinous notes and, like czar said, hints of coconut. Taste is slightly sweet with citrus, fresh cereals, malt, light resinous notes and light bitterness. Light body. Alcohol is completely hidden. Crisp. Moderate carbonation. Refreshing and drinkable. Well done.

Marheb (1743) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 29, 2013
Une pale ale avec une structure maltée massive et un profil houblonnée unique de sapin, mangue et verdure. D’une canette à l’autre, j’ai détecté du diacétyl en doses vraiment différentes mais je soupçonne un entreposage douteux, sans rancune.

Lukaduke (1737) - Portland, Maine, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Pours a deep golden color with two fingers of sticky eggshell foam. The nose is a mixture of citrus, mango, pine, toasted caramel malt and a touch of cotton candy sweetness. The palate follows with some bright hop presence with notes of citrus, spicy earth, some tropical fruit and lots of underlying toasted grain and sweet malt... lingering bitterness helps clean it up a bit.

A good APA. It does get a bit sticky at the end and while the hops play a crucial role, this beer is more muddled than most from MW.
