3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Purchased from a shelf at a store. gold, light haze, white head. Lemon/lime, sour diesel, tropical fruits (pineapple), melon, tangerines, fresh cut grass, . Very fruit forward, clean. Mild bitterness, pretty dry, nothing crazy. Good mouth feel on this one, but a touch oily. Just fine.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky amber with a thin quickly fading off-white head. Aroma is nice and all over the board with dank notes, grapefruit, tangerine, floral hops, caramel, pine, onion and garlic. Taste is herbal and stalky with garlic, onion, floral notes, caramel and some citrus as well. Finishes mildly bitter. Nice but I have to be in the mood for this type of brew with the garlic and oniony notes.

12/27/13. 22oz bomber from John’s Grocery. Hazy orange pour with a nice khaki head that sticks and laces well. Dank hops, onions, some malt sweetness. Mild bitterness, plenty of hop character, onion, sweet, fruity. Crushable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bomber. Unfiltered orange-tan body. Foamy, steady white head. Medium bodied, but with a massive solid hop bill. Dryish amarillo-ish strawy tones at first. Some orange, mellow tangerine, a hint of melon in the aroma. The tropical tones comes out the more you sip at it. Some pungent mango, guava, pink grapefruit start to show up. Pretty much all a beer enthusiast could ask for in a Pale Ale in late 2013. Clean malt backbone and a hefty new school hop barrage. Great stuff.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fine American Pale Ale, verging on IPA-like proportions. The nose is pine and grapefruit, but it also has a substantial orange-citrus note, and the orange grows stronger in the flavor, becoming marmelade. Average backbone, and a milder finish than expected. Decent. Bottle.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: huge charge of dank hops, lots of citrus and tropical fruit, very floral. Seems to have a good mix of Nelson and Galaxy character, melon, grapefruit, orange, some grapes. Light notes of malt and crackers.
Appearance: pours a fairly hazy light golden color, white head with decent retention, leaves spotty lacing.
Taste: great hop flavors - lots of ripe citrus and melon, some white grapes. Medium bitterness - nice amount for the style but not so much that it’s distracting. Ripe oranges and tangerines, just tons of fruit character. Just a touch of sweetness in the finish, light malt flavors, nice balance.
Palate: light-medium body, medium carbonation, semi-dry finish.
Overall: really great APA, explodes with fruit character and fresh hops, hopefully this hop sticks around...

Holy onion juice. Bottle thanks to uncle Lawrence from east bay. Danky and hop focused nose full of cilantro and green things. Some peppers and chlorophyll. Tasty. No too bitter. Biggest knock is that its more of an IPA. Tasty. Cans for 8.98 per 12 pack pls. T. Hanks.
