4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Picked up in a trade at Tree House Brewing. Impressive. The aroma is light but full of lime, melon, passion fruit and hints of lemon. The flavor is very similar and fairly robust even in the finish. Softer mouthfeel, mildly bitter, easy to enjoy.

Aroma is big from citra, citrus, grapefruit and oranges. A pretty sweet maltbase crawls up like a zombie and tries to drag you down, but the hops lift you up and you stay upright and manages to carry you over the finish line. Good bitterness. Superb beer.

Bottle at Miller’s pub. Hazy medium amber with a small white leaving lots of lace. Nose is big citrus with grapefruit, orange, and lemon with significant pine notes. Sufficient malt sweetness to support a huge bitterness from start to finish. Medium slickmouth with average carbonation and a long dry finish. Superb.

So juicy, both on the nose and the tongue. Citra is a fantastic hop for pales since they can otherwise be a bit boring.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a slightly hazed sunyellow color, with a big, stable head.
Smells of sublime bitter, fruity lemon zest with balancing, white-bread malts to it. Citrus got a flowery, inviting note to it, enhancing the beers juicy, ripe lime pulp impression.
Drinks outstandingly easy, with a medium, soft carbonation to it, resulting into a very pleasant, citrus forward pale ale.
Tastes of citrus peel from the very beginning, while the malts provide a fantastic soft mouthfeel, exhibiting a hint of honey, as well as juicy lime. Also yields a soft minerality, creating a very clean and crisp hop profile, showcasing the pungent exotic fruit perfectly. Finishes with biscuity malts among an aqueous softness and pleasantly metallic carbonation, together with a well weaved in citrus hoppiness, which shines during the very end of tasting the beer.
While its hoppiness provides a pleasant assault on the tongue it is perfectly integrated and balanced by all other ingredients of the beer. This creates a great softness on the palate, resulting in an outstandingly easy drinking beer, for which you don’t necessary need to be a hophead, more of a beer which convinces you to be one.
