12 oz bottle from Shep- thanks, Shep! Pours a cloudy gold with a little bit of an orange-amber hue and an initially thick white head that leaves plenty of lace in the tulip. Big hop aroma- oily, fruity, fresh citra hops, wet dead leaves, caramel malts, melon, apricot, and pineapple juice. Flavor of leafy, citrusy hops, not as oily as the nose suggests, pale and sweet malts, plenty of tropical fruits, citrus, and grains. Medium-bodied, with modest carbonation and a smooth, juicy mouthfeel. Absolutely excellent APA.

This beer smells very resiny and citrusy, full of hops. It pours a hazy yellow body with a bubbly white head that leaves decent lacing. It taste very bitter up front followed by a light sweetness. This is a very smooth beer and easy to drink, also gets your fix of alpha acids. mmmm

12oz bottle, courtesy of pantanap. Thanks, Kan! Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color; fine-bubbled light tan head with good retention and lacing. Just huge amounts of grapefruit and tropical fruit hop character in the nose, like this was dry-hopped with the dankest Citra hops out there; dear lord. Medium body; moderate CO2; adequate core bitterness, but just tons and tons of hop flavor: passion fruit, lemon, grapefruit, papaya... Certainly the best showcase of the Citra hop I’ve tasted, and the modest carbonation lets everything play out. Wow wow wow. Medium finish that’s toasty and dry. Beautifully rendered beer.

Ratman197 (10720) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Bottle shared with Doodler and company poured a clear tarnished gold with a lasting offwhite head. Aromas of grassiness, biscuit, pine, skunk bud and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, skunk bud, grapefruit and pine with a crisp dry lingering skunk bud finish.

Multiple bottles thanks to jrallen34 and mikem409. Thanks fellas! Orange amber, mildy cloudy, with a sudsy white head. Nose is fresh citra, nicely bitter, mild sweetness, lots of tropical fruit and grapefruit. Hoppy flavor, with a creamy, sparkling hop palate that pale ales dream of. Yummers.

50belair (2804) - Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Bottle. Hazy burnt orange pour with a white head. Grapefruity hop aromas. Bitter and with bland almost grapefruit hops, but not really. Very unbalanced with little malt characteristics. Hey, the label is cool and I’m glad I got to try it...

hopscotch (9956) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Bottle… Hazy and light yellow with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The nose is chock-full-of fruity pineapple and juicy peaches - skins included. Medium-bodied with a raspy mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. The flavor presents fruity peach and pineapple up front and medium to heavy tannic bitterness on the backside. Finishes fruity, mildly acidic, lightly bitter and bone dry. Nice pale ale. Kudos to fear025 for shipping some bottles my way!

Bottle with Doodler and Co. Thanks everyone! Clear, golden yellow appearance with a white head. Piney, resiny, sticky hoppy, mary jane, organic, potent aroma. Potent, resiny, grapefruity, piney hoppy, pale malty flavor. Hophead’s wet dream. Hoppy as Hell. Great!

boFNjackson (4186) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Bottle at a recent BA/RB tasting... Poured golden-yellow with a white head. Insane amount of citrus and bitter orange peel, or rind qualities. A little bit of mango fruitiness, especially in the aroma. Clean, and beautifully balanced.
