Tried as a sampler at the Monk. This one was the fourth on the tray and it was good and would have been better earlier in the tasting. Citra stands out and enjoying this more and more.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample from growler at DLD (thanks Kan). Pours a golden/light brown color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was citrus favoring grapefruit and tangerine with light notes of grainy bread. The flavor has a nice base of bready malt with ample citrus hops that favor grapefruit and tangerine. Grassy notes throughout. This was a nice diversion in between so many big beers.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served on tap at Port OB. The appearance is an ever so slightly hazy gold with a small white head. The nose and aromas are really nice. A nice load of lemon peel, other citrus, a nice mild hop bite with a solid malty backing. A nice refreshing pale ale for the summer months.
I clicked through a little fast and this should be a Pale Ale, I already sent in for a correction.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clearish light orange with a small white head that leaves specks of lace. Smells subdued hoppy, citrus with a hint of sweetness. Tastes light and hoppy citrusy with a nice balance of sweet, caramel, cereal malts. Medium body, good carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The beer pours a clear golden orange color with a finger of white head and some spotty lacing.
S: A big hop aroma to start this one off. Lots of citrus and pine to go with a bit of grass. The grapefruit notes are really nice on this one and there is just a little bit of tropical fruit in there. I don’t really get any malt at all.
T: While there is a pretty solid hop flavor, this beer is overly bitter. There is tons of pine along with some fleshy grapefruit and grapefruit rind. The finish has a lasting and intense bitterness. I don’t get any malt on the palate either.
M: The body is medium with a moderate carbonation.
D: The nose was really nice, but this beer was just too damn bitter. It would be nice to have a higher hop flavor to bitterness ratio.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light amber color. Massively dry hopped, piney. Very over the top hoppy nose. No body just hops but very light. Light bitter finish. Fun beer, but not
something I would drink all the time.

Sampled at DLD 2011 from a keg that Kan brought. Golden pour with a white head. Aroma of bread, strong aromatic hops, citrus and tropical fruit. Strong hop notes with some sweeties malt character. Flavor has a lot of citrus, mostly orange and tangerine, along with some tropical fruit notes. Good body, nice carbonation. Very delicious and likable pale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the source. Pours with a large white head over a clear golden hued body. Aromas are floral, grainy, light citrus. Flavors are lightly nutty, grainy first, floral citrus, a bit weak. This might be a slightly older batch. Watery, thin and dry. Wasn’t their best hoppy beer on that day.
