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.

12oz. Pours lighter golden with a white head. Aromas of tropical fruit, grass, and some citrus. Flavor is on the lighter side with various tropical fruit, pine, and citrus rind. Easy drinking and very enjoyable

Can. Pours a Clear Amber. Lacks on smell. The palate is nice a nod light. A medium heaviness. The taste is a medium citra taste. Orange and has a piney dry aftertaste. Pretty good pale ale

Thechasm442 (636) - Manhattan, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Can pour. Hazy glowing orange with a pillowy thick white head and nice lacing. Aroma is all citra. Bright citrus and pine with caramel in the back. Flavor is grapefruit, orange, pine, and caramel. Juicy and quenching. Not super complex, but super crushable.

Blah. I love citra hops and this was a big disappointment. The aroma was there and the palate and taste were not. Poorly crafted. On tap in Holland, MI. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This one really smacks you in the nose w/ the hops when you open it. I like it. It is slightly hazed w/ a creamy head. The2015 hop harvest wasn’t my favorite for Citra but it works well here, lots of lemon and floral notes along w/ some pine. This is fairly full bodied but reasonably dry w/ gentle carbonation lending a thick creaminess to it. It finishes fairly mild w/ just a little hint of bitterness. This is a nice and drinkable APA. I could see myself drinking it fairly regularly.

jmohno (1458) - Iowa, USA - APR 24, 2016
Lightly hazed gold, thick fluffy head, lots of lace. Nice citrusy aroma, all of the above, medium/light aroma. Mild malt, caramel malt. Taste is sweet and citrusy, nice malt body, nice resiny finish. Light sweet caramel malts, lemon,light fruit, citrus, light pine. Nice refreshing summery pale ale, but its not real light or light in body. Really nice pale ale.

Terminus (3541) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 23, 2016
Can thanks to a friend of a friend getting way drunk and leaving his beer behind at a cookout. Pours orange hue with some particulates. Nose is all citra all the way it’s like cascade on steroids. Flavors profile that of snpa with a bit more hop punch. More Ibus and some nice crackers malt profile. This can maybe a month or 2 old but still tasty. Would like a fresh tap sample.

Christpuncher (2584) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2016
Aroma of orange. Flavor is very thin, hoppy and some citrus. Very similar to zombie dust and probably better citra is so overdone and I am not impressed. Pours light yellow with a white head. Had out of a can.

Great aroma and very well balanced. Not overly bitter, lots of juicy tropical fruit flavors.

pbzbo (10) - - JAN 25, 2016
Poured from 12 oz bottle. Grassy, citrus aroma, very little tropical fruit. Very strong grapefruit with a lingering resiny mouthfeel. Decent malt balance but no remarkable malty notes. I enjoyed this beer but wished for a cleaner finish.

SG111 (1004) - New York, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Bottled. No clear date. Pours light golden, slight straw, white head. Aroma is Citra heavy. Slightly dank, orange, mango, lemon, really nice. Flavor is orange and lemon rind heavy. Solid citrus flavor. Well done.
