Poured from 12oz bottle. Pours a nice straw color with loads of thick creamy head that clings to the glass. Aroma is mild citra hops and some floral aromatic. Taste is a bit of citra. Decent beer. Similar in some ways to Hoppy Birthday from ABC.

Bottle from latest Jaschais trade. This is the freshest version of this beer I've had. Aroma is stronger than the flavor of the aromatic and tropical citra hops, but only slightly. An amazingly light yet full-tasting pale ale with an amazingly clean palate. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MartinT (9319) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2012
My Bottom Line:
An explosive citrusy, tropical hop bouquet envelops this brew’s light sugars for a linear, but highly engaging hop quencher.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the misty pale amber.
-The soft mouthfeel makes this brew feel light even though it’s 6%.
-Even the finish is dominantly citrusy. Some delicate resins appear here and there, but…
-The malt sugars taste lke simple icing at times. Malts don’t contribute much else in the way of flavor
-The hop profile is overtly citrusy that it might seriously displease those who don’t like fruity Pale Ales.

Bottle. Thx Eric !

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2014 On tap, I had 2 just to make sure the hype was real. It wasn’t. A great beer and I like citra hops but not overwhelmingly amazing. Still drinks like crack juice though. In bottle it is better, I will up the rating. And have had this multiple times recently. It just ins’t spectacular. Another bottle, dated at 2 weeks... This beer has had to gone thorugh a recipe change.

Pours light orange with lots of bubbles and thin white lacing. Average citrus hoppy aroma and a great taste, subtle hops with citrus and malty, honey undertones. If you like APA/IPAs, you will definitely enjoy this one.

Style et résumé: American Pale Ale houblonnée au Citra.
Comment: Bouteille de 330ml. Merci Patrick. L’étiquette est magnifique.
Description: Bière blonde dorée avec une mousse blanche. Le nez est agréable avec un heureux mélange d’agrumes et de conifère. La texture incroyable, elle est ronde. Les houblons sont gouteux. Le caramel est absent, encore une bière qui n’abuse pas des malts de spécialités. La finale offre une superbe amertume.
Note: 8/10

Smells like an IPA, looks like an IPA, tastes like an IPA. Standard and nothing special. Hoppy, hoppy, and more hoppy with a malt that doesnt stand up. If it was about 30% cheaper, it MIGHT be a good buy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks to Matt for the bottle! First time having this since it was bottled. Poured into a Portsmouth tulip. Clear, reddish-orange body with a little over one fingers worth of foamy white head. Good lacing. Malty grapefruit-candy on the nose. Orange zest. Nice use of Citra hops. The flavor consists of a crispy caramel malt backbone, which supports a nice mixture of dry orange wedge, orange pith and leafy hop juice. Body is malty up front, but clean and hoppy on the finish. Good carbonation. Overall, this is an excellent APA and definitely deserves it’s top 10 ranking for the style. I remember this being slightly better when I last had it, but that was from a super fresh growler. Still highly recommended.
