4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber thanks to joshmcg000. Slightly hazy gold pour with a 2 finger, creamy off white head that has good retention and leaves a little lacing. Aroma is loaded with tropical fruit, sweet citrus and some pine, small amounts of perfumey floral notes. A little toast, biscuit and maybe a hint of caramel are there if you really stick your nose in it, but mostly just awesome, fruity hops. Flavor is similarly full of tropical fruit, lots of pineapple and passion fruit, some nice ripe melon, citrus and a hint of pine. Aside from hoppy, fruity notes there are light, but pleasant notes, of biscuit, caramel, toast, sweet apple, a little bread and just enough minerality to the finish to give it a pleasant crispness. Medium body, with a nice, creamy entry, moderate strength, blanketing carbonation and off dry, crisp finish. Fantastic, beer, perfectly drinkable, nearly flawless execution and loaded with hops. After reviewing Zombie Dust a few days ago and this little gem today, I may be a bit spoiled on Citra APA’s. Thanks Josh!

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours hazy amber with a frothy head. Aroma is crazy complex; mango, citrus, sweet tropical fruits, resin, and pine. Aroma-wise this is basically perfect, absolutely begging to be tasted. Big, sweet, in-your-face citrus balanced by the piney resin notes of the hops and the smooth malts. This and Zombie Dust are both incredible, and basically interchangeable in my book. Delicious. Cannot recommend enough.

Hazed yellow gold. Creamy head at first. Blazing juicy aroma, tropical, citrus.Dry toast caramel.Sweetness. Same In taste, juicy, kinda on the sweet side. Sweet hops possibly. Lemon. mango- and first time Ive ever noticed mango so noticeable. Dry toast caramel light, grassy lemon bitter, tart finish but balanced with sweet. bottle about a week old I belive, nice. Good pale ale great hop vibrancy and freshness, solid, yet I don’t think its one of my top 10 pale ales.

Bottle shared by My friend Eric at Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours dark golden with a nice white head and a magnificent citrus aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with a lot of grapefruit and a mellow pine finish. Nicely crafted

Bottle from sister-in-laws boyfriend. Nose is juicy citrus and tropical fruit. Huge hop aroma. Flavor is full on citrus with a light malt bite to even it out. Pale ale? Maybe that’s what they call it. More like an IPA, but who knows or cares now a days. It’s a damn fine brew.

Big, blasting citrus aroma is out of the bottle even before the pour begins. But the taste and aftertaste are remarkably light, attributable to its 50 IBU. Great summer beer.
