Pours a clear golden orange from the bottle with thin off-white film of head and light lacing. Aroma is all kinds of fresh citra hops, citrus and tropical fruits. Taste follows, a quick bitter finish that makes it one of the easiest drinking beers. Very flavorful for the abv, great stuff.

Bottle. Hazy orange liquid with medium tan head. Aroma of fresh hops, pineapple, weed, biscuit, mango, pine, spruce, grape fruit and floral hops. Taste is dry and medium bitter with notes of pineapple, marmalade, biscuit, light caramel and mango. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very balanced and complex, also very hoppy.

Location/Date:Draft on March 27th, 2013 at Churchkey.
Appearance: Pours a clear orange.
Aroma: Aroma of light citrus, pine
Taste: Medium high bitterness for the style, but not so much that it’s not enjoyable. Light orange.
Palate:Medium light body, lingering hop aftertaste.
Summary: A really good APA that I’ve been wanting to try for awhile. This one is always on the front of RB and well deserved, although I don’t think it’s THAT different than Alpha King which is always available.

12-oz. Once you pop, you can’t stop. Pours a murky dark amber with bright golden brown edges and a loose and creamy tan head. Huge fragrant orange notes all over the nose, very intensely aromatic. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Roasty caramel, bright citrus notes, and some resin on the mid palate. Long orange and pine resin finish. Very appetizing. Wonderful beer. Would happily drink this all the time.

Citrus rocks the aroma and the palate. Everything an APA should be. Nectar of the Gods.

Shared a bottle of this with a friend the other night and man do I wish this was available in Arizona! Great flavor and definitely something unique about it. I got a slight sour note on the back of the hops, definitely a good thing in my opinion!

Starts with a nice nose full of grapefruit scent. Cloudy and turbid appearance, likely due to wheat malt, I taste a little bit. Flavor is an instant big hit of grapefruit and other distinct citrusy notes. Wonderful hoppy flavor, real citrus, almost to the point of overpowering any malt flavor. A must for any true IPA fan.

12oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper/orange color with a small light white head. Aroma is very juicy and tropical. In particular, grapefruit and pineapple. Taste is mango, citrus, caramel malt, and a nice bitter hoppiness on the finish.

Wow the aroma is a huge blast of citra hops. The flavor is grapefruit, apple, pineapple, and a really nice citrus flavor, super balanced beer. Wow I need to get a sixer next time!!

Härligt frisk doft. Mycket citra toner. Smakar torrt medelfyllig. Lite väl mycket kolsyrad dock. En bra sommar öl.
