COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This single hop pale ale showcases the Citra hop for a well balanced beer that is delicate in body with a mild bitterness in the finish. She roars with ferocious aromas of grapefruit, citrus, mango and evergreen. pseudoSue’s unique and addictive taste is clean and bright with just enough bite!

Admin Note: Previously brewed as a 5.8% ABV offering, current and future batches are listed at 7% ABV per a tweak and translating the beer to a larger 30 bbl system. Tweaks may continue to change this ABV slightly as they settle on an official end product.

Erzengel (7548) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 14, 2016
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!

Golden color with a white head, good retention with nice lacework. Aroma is hoppy, very fresh, notes of grapefruit, light citrus and some tangerine. Flavor with a good bitterness, medium maltiness, herbal notes with fruity hints. Enjoyable beer with a good bitterness on palate.

Beaver (1635) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2016
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.

muzzlehatch (4576) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 9, 2016
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.

pineypower (3048) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - AUG 2, 2016
Can. Pours out a mostly clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma is of citrus meat, grapefruit, light orangy/tangerine, some mild grainy bread notes and a touch of earthy hops. Taste is solid, very easy drinking. Notes of citrus peel, tangerine, light grapefruit pulp, some tropical notes, grainy bread and some light sweet malty notes. Really solid.

ctipping (1254) - Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2016
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.
