Pale orange pour. Not much head from the gentle pour. Aroma is apricot, tangerine. Juicy peach, citrus flavor. Serious bitterness in the back of the mouth. Malt is very quiet, giving precedence to the hops. Soft mouthfeel runs into rocky bitterness. This is exactly what I'm looking for in an APA. Tons of flavor, malt is underplayed, drinkable all day. I see myself drinking lots of this in the future.

64 oz. growler shared by Phatdog1 poured 2 hours prior. Clear gold color with active carbonation. Aroma of citrus and pine with a perfect balance of malt.

Flavor is crisp with grapefruit, oranges, with a light pine finish. Hints of grassy as it warms. The malt and hops are at a perfect harmony. Great balance with a classic, traditional APA recipe. I could crush this growler myself. Nice.

deyholla (6501) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Can thanks to a trade! Pours a near clear gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of citrus with a bit of grapefruit and a touch of a light grain backbone. Flavor has a bit more grapefruit with some light citrus and just a hint of a grain backbone.

http://imgur.com/3iY4j4r - Can. Pours hazy golden with fluffy white head that lasts and laces. Smells of piney and earthy hops. Drinks with good hop bite. Light to medium bodied. Moderate lingering hop bitterness. Tastes of floral hops, wood, and pine. Hop aftertaste is pleasant.

Tap at the source. Pours cloudy pale white gold with a clingy off white head. Aroma is citrus and bread. Nice pale malt backbone with grapefruit and pine hop.

Scrapersnbeer (1466) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Grapefruit citrus aroma, like an older IPA. Hazy orange with decent head. straight bitter with a hoppry underbelly. Medium body. This place over does it with the IPA, this beer is more like it.

rjplumer (378) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Citrus aroma. Has a milky orange color topped with light white head with a light. Head is very strong and lingers a lot. Bitterness masks the malt inside that takes awhile come through. Bit of a sour finish. This has a noticbly bitter start that mellows as you drink it. Worth having again.

ScipioA (262) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Super carbonated, a bunch of foam popped out when I popped the can. Hazy pale orange with a huge heap of tan head and tons of bubbles. Tropical fruit and grain aromas are promising. The flavor falls flat in comparison, everything seems a bit muted. Citrus hops and subtly sweet pale malts, but it seems like not enough of each. Harsh carbonation and a little astringent in the mouth, this beer finishes dry with a mouthwatering sweet and fruity aftertaste. Bonus points for being in a can, otherwise a fairly meh local APA.

12oz can into a baxter brewing can pint glass. Head is massive, foamy and bubbly, last awhile withe a decent pour and holds steady at 3-4cm throughout. Color is hazy orange, medium bodies broze and glazed dark yellow. Aroma is coned hops, freshness prevails, soil, fertilizer, harvest sections of the home improvement store, bundled witha sweet pine ctirus kick. Taste is mellow hops with a valid point, a bit soapy, then piney and citrus, finishes withe more hops and light malts on the sweet side. Def a drinkable and quality pale ale here, doesnt border too much on an ipa side, and holds its own on the ale side. Ill take another. good second beer of the day on my birthday.
