UPDATED: JUN 18, 2016 Served from the tap at Hopleaf in Chicago, this came amber with a white head and huge citrus aroma. Lacing all the way up the glass. The flavor is out of this world, and while I suspect the IBUs are high, there is no bitterness. Mild sweetness and a long pleasant finish. Rating revised based on three different batches on tap and three more in bottles. None of them in the bottles measure up to the experience on draught. 3.2 to 3.4 in bottles. Amazing experience on tap.

Great beer; lives up to the reputation. This and Alpha King are great pale ales...almost perfect. Just wish both were easier to get ahold of, which is odd because I live in Indiana. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fabulous beer. Perfectly crisped IPA that is both tempting and addictive. Don't pass this one up.

Pours a golden wheat color, quick head that doesn't linger. Taste is very hop forward, softening in bitterness as it crosses the palate. Aftertaste is very pleasant and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clean and crisp aroma, malt sweetness on both palate and aroma. Good beer overall

A second choice which shows the depth of choices at Hopleaf in Chicago. Pours a light orange. Big zesty citrus aroma. Good medium bitterness. Lively and easy to drink. I would have this every week if it came to LA.

Bottle. Not much I can say that hasn’t been said. If citrusy hop juice is your thing this is your beer. I’ve been drinking micros since 1995 and honestly I’ve never had a better beer. If I could only have one beer the rest of my life, this would be it.

Bright gold color with large fluffy creamy-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is humungous and mouthwatering. The citrusy hops are unbelievable. Flavor is nicely balanced with sharp citrus notes, big bitterness, with a smooth caramel malty finish. Very similar to some others like Pliny and Head Hunter, and this one’s price tag is a bit high- like most 3F beers....

bottle thanks to tom10101pours hazy and glowing light golden orange with a very nice white head, good retention and lacing. dank and spicy fruity hops, loads of mangoes, citrus, light pine, pepper, melons, candy-like notes too. nicely supported by a lightly toasted and spicy malt bill with just a hint of caramel. moderate carbonation - could be brighter, light body - oily, very nice dry juicy-fruity-spicy-citrusy finish. incredibly balanced. very good brew!
