Pours a clear yellow/gold with a medium white head. Aroma is loaded with apricot and stonefruits...just a touch of spice...pungent! Flavor follows suit and adds some grapefruit...great bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and lively with a bitter, hoppy finish...dry and lingering. Wow.

I picked up a case of this fresh off the bottling line, When fresh this might be the best IPA out there. My rating reflects the fresh stuff. Kknock a point off for month old stuff. Bottle into Snifter. Golden slightly orange color. Huge citrius aroma, lots of pineapple, mango, orange, apricot and grapefruit. Tast is largely the same with a nice solid piney hop finish. Amazing fantastic beer. Now that the beer is about a month old, most of that fantastic citrius taste has does off. there is a bit of grapefruit still in there, but now has a much stronger bitter hop taste to it. Still pretty good but nowhere near as good as when it was fresh,

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2012 12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a nice 2 finger off white head with nice retention that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Some decent lacing on the glass. Aromas of huge mango, pineapple, grapefruit, tangerine, light pine, floral, herbal spiciness, and apricot. Fantastic aromas here as expected from one of my favorite hops. Taste of big pine, pineapple, mango, tangerine, grapefruit, and herbal spiciness. Nice amount of spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, pine, herbal, and tropical fruit for a bit. Great malt balance makes this extremely drinkable. Medium carbonation and body; with a nice slightly creamy and very smooth mouthfeel. No alcohol noticed at all in the taste or finish. Overall this is an mind blowing pale ale. Tons of great hop flavor and balance. You would think this was an IPA.

Bottle pour. Pours clear yellow with white head. Aroma is citrus hops. Taste is citrus hops and mild malt sweetness. I believe this would have been much better fresh, a little past its prime when I tried it.

On tap at Hunahpu’s Day 2012. Insane drinkability and very smooth. A great balance from a single hop that made me want to come back for more. I would love to be able to turn this into my regular go to session... but alas...

Poured from 12oz bottle. Pours a nice straw color with loads of thick creamy head that clings to the glass. Aroma is mild citra hops and some floral aromatic. Taste is a bit of citra. Decent beer. Similar in some ways to Hoppy Birthday from ABC.

Bottle from latest Jaschais trade. This is the freshest version of this beer I've had. Aroma is stronger than the flavor of the aromatic and tropical citra hops, but only slightly. An amazingly light yet full-tasting pale ale with an amazingly clean palate. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MartinT (8619) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2012
My Bottom Line:
An explosive citrusy, tropical hop bouquet envelops this brew’s light sugars for a linear, but highly engaging hop quencher.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the misty pale amber.
-The soft mouthfeel makes this brew feel light even though it’s 6%.
-Even the finish is dominantly citrusy. Some delicate resins appear here and there, but…
-The malt sugars taste lke simple icing at times. Malts don’t contribute much else in the way of flavor
-The hop profile is overtly citrusy that it might seriously displease those who don’t like fruity Pale Ales.

Bottle. Thx Eric !

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2014 On tap, I had 2 just to make sure the hype was real. It wasn’t. A great beer and I like citra hops but not overwhelmingly amazing. Still drinks like crack juice though. In bottle it is better, I will up the rating. And have had this multiple times recently. It just ins’t spectacular. Another bottle, dated at 2 weeks... This beer has had to gone thorugh a recipe change.
