COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light and crisp ale is sure to capture your taste buds. Not quite a pale ale not quite an IPA. This is our flagship beer which is brewed exclusively with citra hops. The aroma is an intoxicating bouquet of grapefruit, tropical fruit, lemon, and pine.

12 oz. bottle in a tulip glass. Appearance is a translucent golden brass color with a creamy white head. Iím almost amazed at how clear this beer is. Aroma is huge citrus scents such as mango, with a sweet bubblegum-like scent as well. Taste is a more general citrus flavor along with some pine and other hoppy tastes, plus a mild malt backbone. Not quite as impressive as the nose, but still very nice. This is an excellent pale ale.

Pleasant floral aroma. Nice sweet bourbon front makes way to a citrus tartness. Still hop forward. Lacks a bit of body, but definitely tasty.

This one poured a darker golden color with a white head. Aroma was of mainly citra, tropical and citrusy, not much else really. Falvor was similar, medium to strong fresh citra chracter, a little subdued comepared to some of the best citra beers but still pretty darn good.

Bonus 12oz bottle thanks to Gimmethefunkís 1st trade, thanks Pat. Poured an okay looking thicker orange/amber body under a smaller sized foamy light beige head. Aroma needed a little time to open up. Notes of citrus, apricot, amber malts, toast and light lemon. Palate has overly assertive carbonation on a fuller mouthfeel with a dry and lightly bitter finish. Flavor is dry toast, bad oranges, citrus rind, slight earth and a hint of dry vanilla candle for some reason.Average.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint. The pour is a not-quite-see-through coppery gold with a moderate white head and a decent bit of lace left. The aroma is really malty. I was not expecting this at all for a pale ale. There is some hoppiness present, but itís just completely dominated by the caramelly matiness. Iím not really a fan of this. The flavor is much more of the same. There is a little bitterness on the front edge, but then the sweet maltiness takes over. The mouth feel is thin, somewhat creamy, and the aftertaste is just kind of bitter. This could be so much better

A very good light apa citrus tones throughout, very smooth with the nice bitter bite...not too shabby

Bottle thanks to umich03jm. Pours orange gold with a big sticky white head. Aroma is cereal, pineapple, grapefruit. Flavor is sweet with grapefruit , tropical fruit hop. This is good, but the hop seems a bit subdued. No bottle date, but Iíve had it for a couple months at least. Should have cracked this one sooner.

Lots of orange and caramel in this one. Moderate hops but not too bitter. Hints of biscuit and pine on the end.
