Have I ever said "balance is key"? Enjoying at Smallbar in Chi, and in this moment officially miss the Midwest. Citra hopped goodness. Grapefruit, sweet finish. Not overdone - not a hop bomb - just about perfect. Wow...

A delicious APA that actually stands out from the tons of others out there. Aroma was delicious. From the moment the cap popped off, there was grassy and earthy hop aromas in the air. Pour was a nice cloudy light gold with a two finger pillowy head. Taste was nice and hoppy. The grass and earthy notes were front and center with just a hint of citrus. Quick wet finish with mild carbonation. Courtesy my Secret Santa. Thanks man!

Not a contender for the best beer ever, but certainly a very good beer, from its bright golden start, through to the sweet citrus (loving Citra as the hops), and a good, reasonably well balanced finish. No complaints. Tap at The Publican, Chicago.

Fresh bottle from trade with FullObs. Pours a hazy gold color with a small frothy head that fades normally and leaves nice lacing. Fresh hoppy aroma of tropical fruit, citrus, and flowers. Awesome taste, wow! Everything is how I like it in an APA or IPA. Slight sweetness up front with a moderate bitterness later. Super fresh tropical, citrus and floral hop taste. Finish is so smooth with a long lingering citrus flavor. Medium body, perfect soft carbonation and just the right amount of oiliness in the mouthfeel. Overall, I actually thought this beer wasn’t going to live up to the hype for me like Pliny but I was wrong. All the little things are perfect in this beer like the appearance, carbonation, mouthfeel, and finish. And it helps that it’s a showcase for my favorite hop.

Hazy orange pour with a white head. Aroma is citrus, tropical fruit, some slight garlic, resinous. Flavor is bright, citrusy, slight caramel. Nicely balanced beer. Tasty.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2014 Pour nicely golden with a thick white head. Lots of citrus hop aroma. I don’t get too much overpowering hops or malt. The finish is hoppy, but nothing spectacular. Good IPA, but there are others I prefer.

Rich, Pale Ale with an IPA-ish flavor. Everyone in ChiTown raves about this brew. It's really good, but I've had better.
