4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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!

Bottle to snifter. Yellow-gold with lasting head. Nose of colorful lemon & grapefruit, juiciness, gentle pine. Extremely well-balanced flavor, clean finishing, lemony, bright citrus, subtle floral pine. Very appreciative of the clean finish on such a hop-forward ale. However, I would expect more vibrant flavor from a 100-rated brew. Still awesome. Midwest, get it while itís hot. Itís making its rounds in the shops right now.

Aroma is slightly fruity, I get hints of pineapple/mango/grapefruit. This beer defines a great APA. Hoppy, smooth, and just the perfect amount of bitterness in an APA. One of my favorite beers of all time.

A bottle straight from Indy thanks to Fitz. Pours an amber orange color with a white foam head. Soft aroma of caramel with some citrus and grapefruit. Light sweet caramel taste with gentle grapefruit notes and a mild hop hit. Some slight grass mixed in with resin on the finish. Perhaps the best APA I have had.

On tap at Hopleaf (Chicago, IL). Slightly hazy, golden body with a lasting white foamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with citrusy and piney hints. Its sharp, well balanced hoppy taste carries citrusy, malty, herbal, and piney hints. Ends with a long bitter finish. Awesome!

Fantastic in all ways. This beer is smooth with juicy hops through the first sip to the last ... great beer and does not have a harsh bitterness.

Nice balanced hoppy beer. I enjoyed that it wasnít too resinous tasting, sometimes those flavors can destroy my palate. Drank it during dusk at an old haunted stone building on the lake. No zombies were witnessed.

Appearance and nose out shine the flavor, a bit funky in the mouth but not bad. Just donít quite get the 100 score.
