ThisWangsChung (826) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2013
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a hazy golden amber color. The head is a two finger white shade with a frothy-looking texture. It doesnít have the best retention in the world, either. S: There are some decent tropical qualities on the nose. I also note touches of grass, pine, and grapefruit. Aromatically, itís hardly explosive, just oh-so-pleasant. T: Itís initially mildly bitter, with notes of piny hops and a bit of mango. I particularly enjoy the midtaste and its subtle fruit esters. The finish sees a return of piny bitterness. What it lacks in excitement it makes up for in drinkability. M: I think itís a hair too fizzy and sharp on the back end - otherwise, I have little to complain about here, as the light, dry texture makes it eminently drinkable. O: Very easy to like. Granted, itís not a fresh bottle, but beggars canít be choosers, really. This really works well as simple refreshment.

Pours yellow gold, slightly clouded from carbonation, and small-medium white head that quickly recedes. Nose is pine, lime, bread, slight whiff of pineapple. In the glass, more tiresome pine hops land first, but are partially balanced by juicier fruit than typical of this class of beer. Smooth, light body with the expected grapefruit rind finish, but not as bad as some.

JulienHuxley (4317) - Trois-RiviŤres, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2015
Bottle shared with Tom. Clear gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is nice and hoppy, soft doughy malt notes, pine, pine needles, fresh bread and light lime zest. Taste is lightly bitter, quite grassy with a bready flavor. Palate is light bodied, soft carbonation. Nice easy drinking pale ale, a nice surprise.

How: Bottle (12 oz). Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks! Split 2-ways.

>>> A nice citrus forward APA that lacks a bit of body. Very easy drinking.

- Slightly hazy golden-orange with a small white head and little lacing.
- Nice citrusy aroma with an otherwise delicate flavor profile. Not as sweet as your usual Southern Tier.
- Nice mix of secondary flavors like grassy/herbal notes, mild resin, breadied malts and a bit of resin.
- Body is a bit light and carbonation is soft so the mouthfeel is borderline watery.
- Itís smooth, clean and very easy drinking.

Flavors: Citrus, herbal/grassy notes, breadied malts, mild spiciness and mild resin.

ClassyBeagle (374) - USA - AUG 23, 2015
From notes. A: Citrus fruits and light malts. A: slightly hazy golden straw color, sudsy white head. T: Great hops add flavors of mango, citrus, pineapple, flowers, grass, etc. Also a good amount of malt sweetness. This beer is very well-balanced. P: Medium body and good carbonation, tingly. Resinous. Hoppy citrus rind finish. O: EXCELLENT citrus APA!

jake65 (2898) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Bottle: Light haze in a golden pour, small whitish head. Nose is citrus, not overly powerful, but I get the point. Citrus hops flavor and light malt. Dry. Lingering finish gets a little soapy, but overall not too shabby.

TH28 (263) - - AUG 22, 2015
12oz bottle. Appearance: Clear golden with a thick white head and nice lacing. Aroma: Pineapple, citrus, pine resin. A dank hop undertone. Taste: Light maltiness, crackery and bready. Strong herbal and spicy hop flavors, with some citrus and grassy resin. Mouthfeel: Medium body and moderate carbonation. Finish: Well balanced, leaning slightly on the bitter side with some lingering grass and tropical fruit. Overall: A really good APA. Well balanced with a variety of hop flavors and aromas, none of which overpower the rest of the beer

Bottle from beer culture. Appearance: Cloudy orange, thin white head. Aroma: nicely hopped, citrus, light lemon. Flavour: quite a light hoppy flavour with some mineral like elements, citrus, short sharp finish. Quite light though enjoyable.

Kumquats. Thyme. Dandelion. Shortbread. Croissants with bitter marmalade. Watermelon rind. Juicier and more complex than I was expecting.

TXBadger (1962) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy light orange golden color with off-white head. Citrus fruits and light malts on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied, a little depth. Finishes with citrus and bread.

bennetporter (384) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 2, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy light amber from a bottle, lots of small floaties, white head with good lacing. Aroma of yellow grapefruit, flavor similar, a little thin in the mouth. Okay beer.
