Bottle from trade. Thanks James! Hazy amber/orange pour with a fluffy white head. Melon, citrus, spice, and wood in the aroma. Itís an excellent pale ale. Delicately balanced hop flavors, lemon rind, mango, and pressed olive oil. Long fruity finish.

Received a very fresh bottle from a friend. Pours a nice slightly hazy golden orange color with white head. Citrus, and lots of it, some pine and grass as well on the nose; follows onto the palate. Iím really surprised that this has almost no bitterness on the finish. Really good.

Citra is a decent hop... Little plain... But yeah. The balance definitely leans towards the fancy side as opposed to the really drinkable side. Itís good, Iíd buy it... But I wouldnt drive a million miles to get it. I had I back to back with oddside cpa, and it was better... But not like THAT much better.

This is a pretty good beer. Itís some kind of nix between pale ale and IPA. Itís light like a pale all, but more hoppier towards an IPA. Very citrusy. Itís an interesting mouthfeel that I havenít tasted before. Itís very good, but a lot of people make very good beers. Iíve heard this is a world class beer and I donít really buy that. But I would buy a 6 pack of this.

12oz bottle -
First, thank you to bluesnbarbque for this one (I think it was you bro!). The brightness in this beer was astounding and sooo refreshing. A woody, with great citrus notes, like zesting a fresh Meyer lemon. Moderately high hop flavor, with a clean supporting malt profile but wonderfully hop forward. Finish is clean, hop lingering...a little mouth stripping in the hops which I love. Great beer!

Pours hazy golden. Aroma and taste dominated by tropical fruits, mango, pineapple and grapefruit with some grass, pine and herbs. Extremely well balanced hopiness. Probably the best APA Iíve had so far.

On tap at mikkeller. Nice amber pour, thick off white head. No lacing but they were really busy and the glass could have been still wet. Aromas of pineapple, tropical, bit of skunk, pine resin. Medium body, crisp finish with lingering bitterness. Scary good and easily drinkable for the ABV.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a light golden color with an ample off-white head that recedes to a thin lacing. The aroma is full of juicy pineapple, citrus, some tropical fruit & hints of banana peel. The taste is full of tart grapefruit & resinous pine, some lemon zest, a hint of onion, & modest malt foundation on the palate. The finish is drying, slightly herbal & grassy with lingering hints of sweet fruit. Excellent!

Bottle shared at Darkness day. Pours golden color. Strong hop and citrus smell. Taste of bitter grassy hops. Good beer but not my style.
