I think it is close to Bellís Hopslam, but without the hops after taste. It is also much less expensive than Hopslam, but availability can be an issue. I stopped by FFF last Friday and guys were lining up to buy cases of this stuff. I think it is great, but like Hopslam a little better.

bright orange. Aroma of light peach and hops, with hints of grapefruit. Tastes smooth, with lots of grapefruit. Backend citrus similar to eating a grapefruit. Despite all the citrus and fruit flavors though, it holds itís pale ale name well, with an intriguing hoppy profile.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2012-01-19. Lightly hazy golden orange body with a modest foamy white head. 3+ Nice citrusy hop aroma with lots of grapefruit and grapefruit seeds, lemon drop candy, sweaty resin notes as you go on. 7+ Flavour is similar, grapefruit and lemon, sweaty resiny hops, grapefruit seeds linger in the finish. 7+ Smooth average to light body. Quite nice and enjoyable but I had high hopes for it to be even better than it is. Bottle via trade with flandersned

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of jerc and mabel. Hazy golden pour. The aroma is loaded with white grapefruit, pineapple and loads of dank hop character. The flavour is really juicy and fresh despite an odd sort of rotted fruit character in the aroma. There is a bit of soft juicy tropical fruit. Some apricot and a little bit of soft bitterness.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2012 bottle thanks to reynolds314. I love the citra hop here, the body has a touch of malt sweetness in it that is amazing. I like when the hops and malts blend perfectly. IPAs shouldnt really be all about the hops. Great job!
