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.

Bottle thanks to Brian. Pours a clear orange gold with small frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong citrus, tropical, and resin. Medium mouthfeel with nice juicy fruit hop, light resin and bitterness. Very good.

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.

On tap at Odd Side this past weekend. Served in a pint glass. Pours a nice peach color with a good foamy white head and some nice lacing on the way down. Thin cap through most of the session and a collar after that. Nose brings forward a good dosing of Citra hops with plenty of tropical notes as well as a bit of citrus. Mild bread in the background. Flavor is all about the tropical nature of Citra. Quite nice and refreshing. Light body and good carbonation. Dry. Very solid.

Bronze and copper coloured body with a thin, one centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of light citrus hops with a good malt noticeable and some light fruity smells of apricots and lemons. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive herbal and citrus hop flavours at first that show more hops than malt, but the malt is noticeable shortly after with some cardboardie notes. Aftertaste shows a good light and fresh hop flavour with a little sweetness and some hints of bitterness at the end. Overall, a nice crisp and refreshing APA with more hops than malt. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Merchant’s in Dearborn, Michigan on 02-August-2013 for US$1.99 sampled in Grosse Ile, Michigan on 04-August-2013.

Bottle shared at tasting. Hazy orange body. Soapy residue of a head. A touch of buttery tones bring it down. OK, but lacks perfection for sure. Kind of amateur, but a lot of hop tones.

Smells fruity. Purs golden with great lacing. Medium to high carbonation. Not as much leave, only a little bitter. Some sourness. Good session IPA. On tap at Hopcat.

12 ounce bottle thanks to BlowOffTube. Nice floral aroma. Taste is slight muted malt and nice citrus flavors given off by hops. Nice tropical fruit finish. Very solid and very drinkable.

Bonus 12oz bottle thanks to Gimmethefunk’s 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.

jkwood04 (4462) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 15, 2013
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours brownish-amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of fruity and citrusy hops plus a good amount of caramel and light pale malts. Flavor the same, with a nice fruity, citrusy hop profile. Average texture. A good pale ale, but probably can’t truly be classified as this.

Poured a golden color with aromas of light malt, citrus, hops, and light tropical fruit. Flavors were citrus, hops, and light malt. The citrus flavors and hops quenched my thirst, but still made me want more after each sip.
