4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a hazy orange-hued golden body with a small white head. Nose is catty herbs, tomato plant, citric peel, red berries, apricot, mango and hints of straw and lemongrass. Taste is wet grass, mango, citric peel, grapefruit and hints of catty herbs, red berries and straw. Light body, medium to high carbonation. Very refreshing and complex, with a strong herbal-citric base that keeps pouring out nice citric tones. Considering the nearly 8 months since this was brewed, it is a most impressive APA, probably worth its high rating. Nice indeed.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly hazy orange color with off-white head. Aroma has dank, slightly fruity, tropical hops. Taste is slightly malty and sweet at first, hoppy with some tropical notes but also floral and resiny. It’s fascinating how they pulled out all the major hop profiles from just Citra hops. Gets slightly bitter on the finish and aftertaste but not too much. Medium body with crisp carbonation. Really good overall but I think it’s a bit over-hyped.

Bottle purchased at Casanova in Hudson. Golden orange with good lacing and a white quarter finger head initially. Nose has elements of pine and citrus but slightly understated. Taste has plenty of bitterness and floral undertones. Hoppy notes abound. Easy to drink with a pleasant finish. Not my favorite from the brewery but still very enjoyable starting the night type of beer.
