4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear light golden with 3 finger head that lingersand leaves moderate lacing. Aroma of bright toasted hops, maybe a little biscuit and a huge dose of grapefruit hops. Heavy bitter throughout with long bitter finish. Full body, chewy, slightly oily mouthfeel. This is a great one!

I love this beer. It’s my favorite beer besides the Dreadnaught. I wish I could drink this everyday.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Mikkeller & Friends. Pours clear orange with a medium white head. Aroma has some citrus, hops and tropical fruits. Taste is of damp hops, hay and is a bit too bitter. Palate is sleek and easy. Overall I was a bit disappointed, though it is not bad.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into DFH IPA glass showing a finger of clean white foam and cloudy honey amber.
The nose shows a lot of fresh juicy tropical & citric fruit (mango, pineapple, notes grapefruit pith, orange zest). Some hints of malt sweetness here & there. Very full and abundant nose.
The palate shows high carbonation and a light body. A very slight malty sweetness appears briefly in the beginning. Then taken over by a lot of the same fruit flavors described. Very good intensity and freshness. Light bitterness on the end that’s barely noticeable because the fruit attack of the hops are so unbelievably juicy and prominent. Extremely drinkable and great on a warm summer day.

12 oz bottle- pours a nice straw color. Very good nose- lots of hops and citrus, of course. Great APA if you like Citra hops. I do... so it was good

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours amber gold with a nice rocky head. Aroma is great, grapefruit and barley. Taste is nice, bold citrus up front and sweet malty goodness on the (slightly dry) back end. Nice light mouth feel and mildly carbonated. Overall a fantastic pale ale. Almost perfect version of the style if you are a fan of hoppy ales.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slightly hazy orange with an off-white head. Aroma is orange peel, light dankness, weed, sesame bread, orange blossom, mango. Light-medium bodied, bittersweet on the palate, well balanced, fruity finish with a lightly bitter aftertaste. Taste is orange peel scones, orange blossom honey, citrus zest. Great citra showcase.

Twelve ounce bottle from my nephew (thanks, Andy!), tasted on December 24, 2014. Very cloudy orange/yellow hue, strong piercing bittersweet nose, somewhat light but complex bittersweet flavor. This bottle was a bit old--would like to revisit this beer. It would probably be even better.
