4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
The aroma fills your nose with citrus with just a little bit of piney. Appears a deep amber with a quarter inch head that dissipates but leaves sticky residue as it settles. Taste is juicy grapefruit up front and tapers into a bitter rind and ends with just the right amount of bitter citrus. Palate has a good amount of carbonation with a slightly sticky feel but doesn’t hang around for too long. Overall, a great apa that brings down what others call their ipa.

Poured from bottle into shaker. Brownish orangish color with thin white head. Scent is citrus and sweet malt. Taste is good balance of sweet malt and cirusy hops, with mild very pleasant bitterness. Smooth feel. Great beer.

Bottle from trade. Thanks, Marc! Pours medium amber with a big clingy off white head. Aroma has orange, grapfruit, tangerine citrus. And mint? Caramel malt backbone with balance from mostly grapefruit peel hop. This is about three months old and I fear it has lost some of its egde. Still, a pretty good APA.

A damn fine pale. Great citrus flavors, clean end without being real bitter, nice lacing on the glass and the hop profile is just right.
