Great fresh and floral nose. The beer starts fresh, round and intense floral. Very dry in body, hints of grain, fresh with lots of pine in the mouthfeel. Dry bitter and nice fresh floral aftertaste. Very crisp brew, round and refreshing! Nice hop profile!

16 oz can, canned 7/5/16. Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a big bubbly white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.
The aroma is bready malts and lots of dank resiny hops with a little fruit, pepper and pine.
The flavor is sweet bready malts and fruit with lots of dank resiny piney hops. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, very nice, more like an IPA.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
16 ounce can from Trig’s in Wausau, WI (July 2016), consumed at slightly above fridge temp from a Guinness pint glass. Oily-hazy bright, almost luminous gold body is topped by a large frothy slow-diminishing off-white cap, which leaves thick foam gouts in the glass....aroma is expectedly fruity/citric (orange, grapefruit) but also resinous/piney and interestingly funky/sweaty, with some lovely spicy hints (cinnamon) to round it out; it’s hugely brash and potent and that odd mixture really works...in the mouth it feels just a tad watery at first, but the body seems to get stronger towards the finish; it’s rather acidic and certainly quite hoppy for an APA, but I think keeps it tamped down enough to qualify for the style as opposed to an IPA - the malts are in the end more pronounced, and though there’s a bit of caramel, and just a touch of syrupy alcoholic feel, the end product is extraordinarily drinkable and the sweet-dry balance is to my taste nearly perfect for this kind of beer. I drank two of these suckers in about half an hour without even thinking about it, now I’m going to have to struggle to make dinner. But worth it, and a beer that deserves it’s marks here I think.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
650 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 10/11/2013. Hazy bright orange. Nice white head. Great lacing after the head settles. Strong mango and melon aroma. Orange and tropical fruit. All hops. Taste is more mango. Sweet citrus hop. Sweet pale malt. Slight grain. Just a ton of delicious citra hop goodness. Thick for a pale ale, but I like it. Creamy. Medium low carbonation. This is ridiculously good. Very few breweries make a pale ale anywhere near as good as this.
