Be aware that everyones palate is different. Overall great beer. Hoppy with a good citrus taste and finish. I have had draught and bottle and both are great. PROST!

From tap @Mikkeller. A bright orangey body, under a dense low blond cap of foam. Crisp and inviting fruity hop aroma. Tropical fruits and superfresh citrus hit the nose. Also a catty note, and hint of resiny hop oils. Appropriate light-bodied. Clean in the mouth. The flavor emphasizes the qualities of Citra hops really well. Fresh ripe citrus fruit flavor with tones of gooseberries and passion fruit. Dry pale malts in the backbone. Tight and fresh fruity bitterness in lasting finish. Simple and inviting, and easy drinking. I just love this one.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of sweet citrus, pine, grapefruit, and fruity hoppiness. Flavor was hoppy and moderatly bitter with citrusy fruity hops, piney resin, grapefruit, and some light caramel with a long and bitter finish.

Bottle via trade through PUB’R,, the Pennsylvania Underground Beer Railroad, and while we were trading this we pissed on a PLCB emblem and shoved some pins in a Wendell Young voodoo doll. The pour is turbid, thick, dark straw, and has a 3-finger off-white head that laces well. Nose is like Dreadnaught; and in fact in a blind test I trust I could not detect the difference. Huge piney hops with tons of honeydew, tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, and black pepper all over the place. Definite 10 for nose. Tastes rich, complex, with huge pineapple, tangerine, honeydew, grapefruit, black pepper, and the full profile of my favorite hop, Citra. If I ever remarry, it will be to a Citra hop cone. This one just juices all over the place, all over your taste buds with the aroma filling the olfactory glands, and the taste continuing down the esophageal membranes. even the hop burps on this one smell great. If you can get this one, it is certainly worth your time. I just hope we can keep the eBay scumbags away, and I sincerely hope this review does not spark a wave of trading online, although to be honest I am starting to think that not only does Nick Floyd tolerate the inflated trading of his beers; but he clandestinely encourages it, as with Hollywood, "all publicity is good publicity".

Golden tan pour into an imperial pint glass, inch or so of thick white head. Sweet hoppy aroma that is a bit subdued. Aromatic hoppy flavor, it goes down too smoothly. Fruity hoppy aftertaste.

12oz bottle I had while visiting friends in Chicago- This is beer packs the most citrusy, passionfruity hop aroma/flavor that has ever graced my mouth. I was completely blown away by this one, a truly world-class brew!

Traded for a six-pack while down in Asheville, NC. This pale ale is a rockstar, from the iridescent label to its shine in the glass to the way it lights up all your taste buds on the way down. Stellar in every way. So glad we've got five more of these superstars! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Hopleaf in Chicago. A bit dark in there, but looked like a bright orange pour with a half-finger white head. Massive citrus and tropical fruits on the nose, perfect sweetness (meaning not too much). Slick palate. Tasty and massively drinkable.

Pours a clear gold color with a 1 finger white head consisting of tight bubbles. Aroma is very citrusy, floral. Very impressive aroma. First sip lands me gentley in a field of flowers in bloom, poppys, iris, lillies, and then suddenly an orange falls off the tree and hits me in the head. More and more citrus fruit keeps falling, until I look like Carmen Miranda. Beautiful. A strong malt backbone holds this all together until the bitter end. Very well executed beer, and deserving of its high ratings.
