4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
This is one of my all time favorite beers. It’s probably the best smelling pale ale out there. It smells like a citrus flower garden. It tastes the same. There isn’t a lot of malt in this one, so you get mainly hop bitterness in the flavor, but it is not out of balance. It’s a very tasty, refreshing beer. FFF at their best.

What an amazing Pale Ale! Aroma of citrus and hops hops hops! Very well balanced but for those looking for a "traditional" Pale Ale, look elsewhere....this borders more to IPA. I happen to love it though!

Received a bottle in trade from DaBubs and one from dwbrews, thanks guys! Bright orange color, a little lace. This had a, not bad a very hoppy smell like fruit, smelled good. Flavor was more hops, fuzzy peaches actually. This was a good beer and I wouldn’t say it was an IPA but I would say it was very one dimensional and so I probably wouldn’t revisit it. Still, I was very glad to have had the opportunity to drink this.

Really nice in the glass - creamy, sticky foam. The nose is pure Citra. Strong, very fresh without being too sharp. Sweet. Flavor-wise, it’s like Citra bubblegum in a glass. Smooth. Fruity. Far too easy to drink. In my honest opinion, this is not the best american pale ale, but it is probably the most enjoyable for beer nerds. There is something really special about a single-hop pale, and citra was a great choice.

3.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Huge fruity-hop nose on this, brings to mind fresh blood oranges, candy orange wedges, and dark honey. Hazy reddish-orange color and grayish-white head. Fairly bitter, lightly sweet, with that bitter hop-resin sticking and getting a bit more intense in the aftertaste. Juicy citrus girding that bitter structure, but not as much as the aroma promised. Medium-bodied, not as dry as some, but that resinous bitterness makes it seem drier. When did IPAs of 6.4% become APAs exactly? There is alcohol and IBU inflation at work, and those numbers are not worth what they once were. Well-made citrus bomb that is not as drinkable as it might have been.
