From a can on the bus back from DLD. How did this not get consumed earlier? Fantastic well thought out IPA... I must visit this brewery!

Can at Mikkeller Bar, march 24th 2016. Hazy golden body with a lasting white head. Aroma is a citrus and grapefruit bomb with hay, mild grass and pine. Taste is super fresh and crisp, the citra really shows it’s best side here, peach and grapefruit for the most with a tropical medium bitter finish. The aftertaste is so juicy you’re almost afraid of taking another sip to destroy what’s going on in the mouth. Nice!

pours golden color, clear, almost brilliant, with lasting white foamy head. Aroma: intense hop aroma, which takes on pine, citruses, like lime, grapefruit....flavor: rich hop flavors, with notes of citruses, pine, supported with malt flavor, which steps forward in second half, and takes on toffee. Finish is slightly bitter. Body is medium, texture soft. carbonation is medium. Body, palate nad abv. like ipa?

Thanks Joe! Bottle (a tad old), but still nice pale that had plenty of citra pop with some mango and orange flavors, mildly bitter and nice crisp finish. Great APA

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bit hazy golden color, medium sized white head. Aroma of pine, lots of hops, some mango. Reminds me of Brewdog’s Jack Hammer. Taste is also great, pine with decent amount of bitterness. Thin body, average carbonation. Very very tasty. One of the best APAs I had so far. //0,4 can from Svijet Piva

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
17 day old can mail ordered from France44.com into a stange.
A: Giant merengue head atop a clear gold body with slow bubbles. Long head retention and thick lace
S: Sharp sweet grapefruit scent with toffee/honeysuckle faintly in the background.
T: Bitter and piney becoming fruity with tropical and citrus notes. Pith and zest. A slightly astringent "green" note assumed from alcohol.
M: Light medium body with nice carb tingle. Slight resin finish.
O: Good pale ale but worth nowhere near the hassle required to get it. I will enjoy my remaining 3 cans but likely will not ever buy again.

From a tall boy can. I did not expect to come across this in Southwest Florida. Orange, with a thin but very dense white head. Smells like toffee, with tropical citrus and some grassy notes. Pleasantly heavy palate. It’s nicely hop-forward, with citrus and grassy flavors. There’s a nicely undercurrent of toffee and caramel, as well. Good stuff.

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2016 Draft at Nova?s in WI. A personal favorite, this just always hits the spot. Tons of citrus, a nice hop backbone, juicy with a touch of bitterness and not overly resiny. If you see it, grab some.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can pour - clear orange with a frothy white head that maintains a ring throughout the drink - mild lacing. Aroma is citra hop forward, yet not overpowering - hint of piney hops as well...malt working in the background - nice stuff, albeit not particularly remarkable. Flavor is a bit more mild on the bitterness scale than anticipated...again, the citra hops shine...biscuity malt in the background - finishes with a strong dose of bittering hops. Palate is medium bodied and appropriate for a style. Maybe a bit disappointed with the expectations provided by the percentile on RB, but all in all this is a solid APA...nothing more...nothing less.
