UPDATED: OCT 30, 2011 Bottle from Adam - thanks! Pours a hazy, golden orange with a slight and quickly fading white head. Aroma is dank, resinous hops, pine, citrus, mango, and tropical fruits. Extremely sweet and floral nose. Taste does not quite match the pungency of the aroma but it’s still damn good with clean, slightly bitter hops, a dry malt backbone, and some citrus. Would absolutely love to have access to this on the regular. Excellent pale ale.

Damn this beer is the sh!t.... Great nose of seeping wet grapefruit. Clearish orange in color, big head. Taste is grapefruit, tropical fruits biscuits, slight flowers, with a well balanced bitterness. Super smooth, way to enjoyable to drink. Simple but great APA. WoW, wish this was available in my area, and all the time. This was drank on the warmer side ~50 degrees. Overall. Probably the best pale ale I have had. Dreadnaughts little brother....... Huge "thanks" to stfun for the hook-up!

VERY solid Pale Ale, almost bordering on an IPA. Cloudy light orange colored brew with some nice lacing and a fantastic smell to it! The taste is simple enough to really let the Citra Hops shine through. Nice Citra hop hit when you first sip it and lingers but than finishes clean. If I could buy this beer regularly I it would be a staple of mine.

On tap at the Brewpub, October 21, 2011. Slightly hazy dark golden with a white head. Fresh with a lot of hops and fruit. Really, really drinkable and refreshing. I liked the floral and the resinous character of this beer. Would love to drink this one in the summer in Sweden.

Bottle split with Pat. Pours a hazy orange yellow body with carbonated white head. Aroma is incredible juicy citrus fruits - pineapple, grapefruit, orange, and lemon. Mouthfeel is outstandingly refreshing with again, ripe fruits dominating the flavor along with some citrus hops. One of the best American Pales I’ve ever had.

DalzAle (1976) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Bottle thanks to StFun. Light orange pour, lasting carbonation and lacing and a nice sweet hoppy aroma. Flavor is rich and slightly dry orange hops, a little bitters and finished with a nice mellow malty aftertaste. Well done, I’ll be in IN later this week and am going to look for more of this!

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - OCT 23, 2011
12oz bottle from Marc. Rating #150. Darkish yellow pour wirh some orange mixed in there, it seemed a bit hazy as well with a decent white head that lingered with a nice little amount of lacing. Picking up sime pine and tropical fruit, a little sweetness. Nice amount of bitterness up front leading to a little caramel sweetness and some fruitiness as well, nice stuff. (1966)

Bottle. 12 oz. Split with and courtesy of James. Pours a bright, deep, vibrant yellow with a frothy, spiderweb laced out head. Aroma of grapefruit, dry champagne, soft buttery and bourbon notes, soft hay and grassy, floral hints, and some amazing soft orange and nectarine hints. Fucking amazing. Flavor is so tasty, man. Pure pineapple, grapefruit, mango, and passionfruit with a slightly bitter, yet overwhelmingly juicy finish. The hop juices in this brew are fucking incredible. What a layered, citrusy, and refreshing pale ale. It might even kick Gumballhead’s ass. Maybe.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Honey colored pour, 24 karat and murky with a nice 1-inch fluffy white head. Aroma of grapefruit pith, dank grass, lemon zest, and evergreen. Flavor begins aggressive but tapers down. Definitely get the hop bitterness and some herbal, earthy qualities. Seems a bit sharp. Medium mouthfeel. Good but not great.

Totally awesome. The hop and APA flavor here will make anything else boring in comparison.
