Thans turd for sharing. Pours rich toasted amber with one finger of dense off white head. Resinous nose, kind of piney and oily with some garlic. Oily and resinous flavor with a medium hop bite and toasted grain. Nothing like the Citra IPA I just made, much more resin and pine heavy than I was expecting.

Wow, great beer. Better than Dreadnaught in my opinion. The aroma is citra hops all the way. The appearance is a very typical golden that the IPA style normally is. The taste is full of citra hops and is balanced by more citra hops. I really enjoy this beer and wish I didnít have to have friends send me six packs out here in California

Pours a cloudy orange with a nice white head and descent lacing. Intense smells of pine,citrus, grapefruit, grass. Taste is top notch with hops in the forefront and some malts. Great mouth feel and carbonation. This is really easy drinking. Amazing how great the balance is. This is the best APA i have ever had, hands down.

On tap. Dark golden sunset orange with a medium white head. This beer smells and tastes amazing. Probably the best Pale Ale out there. Enormous grapefruit aroma with a touch of earthy pine and bready malt. The flavor is out of this world. So much citrus for a beer of this style. Huge grapefruit and tangerine with a big hop resin profile. Extremely well-balanced with a delicious bready, biscuity backing. Medium-bodied, slightly syrupy, and very easy to drink. Fantastic lingering hop bitterness. Simply an amazing beer.

Bottle thanks to pantanap. Thanks Kan! Pours cloudy amber with nice white head. Aroma is grapefruit, citrus hops, pine and resin. Flavor is grapefruit, dry, citrus hops and tropical fruits. Has a nice dry fruity finish. This is a really good apa.

Nice tan head with lasting lace. Lightly hazy amber/orange color. Big, juicey hop nose. Lotsa citrus, grapefruit and pine, large and fruity, some resin. Makes yer mouth water. Medium bodied, oily on the palate, soft carbonation. Gorgeous little hop bomb with all the flavors listed above and a bit of and just a bit of grainy maltiness. Dry finish leaves ya wanting MORE! Damn Gabe, thanks for the bottle! Could drink a few of these bad boys.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2013 Date: October 22, 2011 Mode: Bottle Source: Darkness Day. Full description not available as I sampled way too many beers during Darkness Day! Had again December 28, 2011 bottle from Fullobs. Semi-opaque cloudy orange with nice head that faded quickly and some lacing. Citrus/orange and maybe some lemon, and hops in aroma and taste was similar with mild bitter finish. Very well done. Increased overall to 16 from previous rating. Drank another 5.25.13 during Champions League final. Bumped appearance to a 4 with the long lasting head and lacing, but moved palate down to 3 with the bitterness that lingered after the finish. No change to overall rating at 3.9.

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 itís 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!
