Reviewed 11/12/2012. HUGE thanks to Momar42 for the bottle! Unfortunately, itís 6 months old, but beggars canít be choosers... 12 oz bottle poured into a beer mug. A: Pours an intensely cloudy orange-copper color. The head is a one finger white color with some fantastic retention - itís been about a minute and the head is still there S: Thereís no doubt this zombie is but a shadow of its former self, though it has held up well enough to be pretty good. This has a lot of papaya, mango, and honeydew melon, along with a piny brightness. I also detect a very subtle sweetness to it. T: Extremely good for a six month old pale ale. Most of the bitterness is midpalate; the opening flavors are melony and sweet, while the finish is wonderfully neutral and bready. Nonetheless, this offers a decent melange of tropical fruits. If only it were fresh *sigh*... M: This feels a LOT lighter than it looks, and goes down with amazing ease. Carbonation is perfect for what this beer is, perhaps a hair too light. The finish is surprisingly wet, likely due to the (un)dead hops. O: I really like it - but it pains me to review it in this state, given the circumstances. On the plus side, I could really see this being one of my favorite beers EVER fresh, so needless to say, Iíll be on the hunt for fresh bottles of this!

12oz Bottle A - Pours orange amber with a one finger peach head gives away to soap suds. Mild lacing ok carbonation S - Floral tropical fruit T - Citra is an amazing hop. Orange peel, zesty, crisp, and a nice malt structure M - medium bodied, clean, easy drinking O - I prefer this slightly more than Alpha King. Outstanding Beer!

wheresyourball (517) - El Cajon, California, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Poured from 12oz bottle into a tulip. Pours a light yellow color with a medium-sized head. Aroma is floral and hops. Taste is hops and citrus. Mildly bitter finish. I think this oneís a bit over-rated here on ratebeer.

This is one of the best apaís around. Fresh juicy citrus note on the nose. The flavor is like dank, fruity hop pillow. Amazing

kbutler1 (1356) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Draft. Pours a clear golden orange color with a nice white head. Really nice lacing. Strong hippy aroma with both fruit and floral notes. Nice fruit forward hop note that has a building bitterness. Very balanced. Can see why this is the #1 APA. Fantastic.

World class beer. Citrus and pine smell with a hoppy, citrus flavor. Great balance.
