Pours cloudy amber with thin white head and persistent lacing. Aroma is definitely citra with ample sweet malt. This beer is just delicious, one of the best single hop pale ales!

Look - Dark gold almost orange with bright white head. Good lacing.
Smell - This has a great smell for a low IBU / ABV pale ale. Bready and dank.
Taste - A great taste for what it is. Bread hits first and dank hops mellow out to the finish.
Feel - There is no sting on the tongue. It feels like soft water.
Overall - Why drink an imperial or double when you can get the taste from this pale ale? I really can’t believe I only bought a 6 pack of this at the brewery.

From bottle to pint. This beer pours with a delicate head. One of the most beautiful floral bouquets I have smelled. Citrus, violets, mango, pine....the good stuff. The flavor doesnt quite match the aromas, but still absolutely delicious. Apricots, mangoes and spruce on the palate. The mouth feel is very good. Nice weight to this beer. Hoppy but not overly so. One of the best beers around. If you see it on a shelf buy it and enjoy, or get ahold of me. Ill take it off your hands. Cheers!

Bottle share at Dominion Wine and Beer. Hazy orange-gold with small white head. Loads of citrus hops with some resiny pine coming through on the tail, along with a malt base. Fantastic.

Citrus and pine. West coast like alcohol not prevalent like alpha king. Nice bitter finish.

One of my favorite beers. A good hoppy pale ale but also has citrusy flavors that finish it perfectly. I have friends who will drive to another state for this beer .
