12 oz. bottle poured into a New Belgium glass. A moderately aggressive pour yielded a dark, golden brew with a 2-inch white head which lasted. Lacing was spotty but lasted throughout. The nose was the resinous and the lemony, hop-centered smell you would expect from the citra. The taste was dry, lemon, orange and mango, grassiness, pine but there were tones of some nice malt notes and grain as well. I loved the healthy carbonation and some nice bitterness at the back end. The mouthfeel was medium to light. What a wonderful surprise this beer was. I just wish I could get more!

I can see why this is such a sought after beer. Nothing about it is weak. It has a nice golden color, great smell and a taste that reminds me of Lagunitas Sucks.

Födelsedagspresent till mig själv. Infriade mina högt ställda förväntningar. Kunde lika gärna kallas en IPA, grym balans. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle at home. Smell is citrus and grapefruit, floral. Pour is a golden hazy body and a white head. It tastes just like it smells. Grapefruit with citrus. Overall this is a great beer...Would definitely try again.

Solid beer, worth the hype. Pours hazy orange with a small white head that disappears quickly. I didnít get much lacing on this either. The nose on this is herbal, pine, mango, pineapple, citrus. Nice fruity hoppy taste throughout. Very smooth, not much bitter that I got. More of a sweetness factor in this. Thought the flavor would burst and pop a little more based on what Iíve read, but overall I wasnít disappointed. As far as APAs Iíve tried, I like only Pseudo ahead of this.

Poured into a sniffer... all grapefruit and citrus in the nose. Nice light fluffy head with a golden hazy body. This beer doesnít dissapoint. Falls just shy of an ipa, showcasing everything that we have lost in pale ales. This hits all the way in the back of the jaw. An excellent beer.

DAMN!!! This is some great stuff! Has an aroma that is reminiscent of B.O. But the flavor is sweet and hoppy and citrusy. LOVE IT! Super smooth too.

Osprey87 (1154) - London via, WALES - APR 12, 2014
Cold bottle, 2 months old. Pours dark orange, hazy, slightly sparkling, minimal white head. Aroma - orange pith, slight pine. Body - medium, quite foamy in the mouth, carbonation is medium to high. Taste - sweet, musty caramel, pine, grapefruit, peppery finish. Good balance. Overall - an accomplished pale ale. Nothing too special at 2 months old, but I donít think I could get it any fresher in the UK.

Sampled @ Hunahpu Day 2014. Iíve wanting to try this for quite a while and finally had it and it didnít disappoint. Pours hazy orangish color with off white head. Aromas of citrus and pine wit a hint of malt. Grapefruit and pine flavors with moderate bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation. Very nice.

Very nice APA. Good balance and strong malt backbone. Aroma is slightly citrus sweet. Taste follows. Not as crisp as a psuedo. Dark amber in color, I prefer more orange. Bitter aftertaste does not stay around too long which is good.

Pours hazy golden orange with a semi dense white head. The nose on this is bonkers. Just the perfect ballance of aromas. You got crispy herbal pine along with fruity mango, pineapple and abricot. The mouthfeel is on the lighter side which is great. Drinkabilty is high and I like that in an ipa. The flavours are well ballanced too and the best part is that thereís not much bitterness in the finish. Just fruity hoppy goodness all the way to the bank.
