By far the best American Pale Ale I’ve tasted to date. The hop pop in this baby with the towel dry finish. Thin head and medium body. What else can I say this is one damn good beer and glad I got to finally try. Will be beer hunting more of this real soon. Cheers!

I love this beer. It’s my favorite beer besides the Dreadnaught. I wish I could drink this everyday.

Draft at Mikkeller & Friends. Pours clear orange with a medium white head. Aroma has some citrus, hops and tropical fruits. Taste is of damp hops, hay and is a bit too bitter. Palate is sleek and easy. Overall I was a bit disappointed, though it is not bad.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into DFH IPA glass showing a finger of clean white foam and cloudy honey amber.
The nose shows a lot of fresh juicy tropical & citric fruit (mango, pineapple, notes grapefruit pith, orange zest). Some hints of malt sweetness here & there. Very full and abundant nose.
The palate shows high carbonation and a light body. A very slight malty sweetness appears briefly in the beginning. Then taken over by a lot of the same fruit flavors described. Very good intensity and freshness. Light bitterness on the end that’s barely noticeable because the fruit attack of the hops are so unbelievably juicy and prominent. Extremely drinkable and great on a warm summer day.

12 oz bottle- pours a nice straw color. Very good nose- lots of hops and citrus, of course. Great APA if you like Citra hops. I do... so it was good

Pours amber gold with a nice rocky head. Aroma is great, grapefruit and barley. Taste is nice, bold citrus up front and sweet malty goodness on the (slightly dry) back end. Nice light mouth feel and mildly carbonated. Overall a fantastic pale ale. Almost perfect version of the style if you are a fan of hoppy ales.
