12oz bottle. Clear yellow / orange color. Good thick foamy white head that retains well, leaves good lace. Nice, fresh, tropical citrusy nose. Good, lightly tangy zesty sweet taste, with a good satisfying bitterness. Moderate toasty malt. Very dry texture, very smooth, lighter carbonation. Good long after taste - bitter, orange, earthy hops. Nice smooth pale ale with a great, complex hop flavor

Very nice fresh hopped ale. Not sure how I haven't had it since it's from a brewery I'm so familiar with. This will become a Fall staple for me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Very vibrant grapefruit hop core with edges of mango; the malt character is actually detectable with cereal. Appearance: Mostly clear light copper body with a patch of creamy tan head. Flavor: Fairly fruity up front with grapefruit still dominant; some light/moderate bitterness comes in closer to the finish. The cereal/toast malts are unmistakably in there, and provide a slightly sweet respite from the bitterness. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: My first beer in nearly two weeks and worth the wait. Quite nice indeed.

Nice orange color with a very pleasing hop aroma. Tropical and fruity from the Citra hops. Taste is pleasantly bitter with some toasted malt and nice citrus zing. Medium-light body. Pretty good, the Citra hops really make this an enjoyable beer.

12oz bottle shared poured medium orange color with white head. Nice hop aroma, mild to medium malt backbone. Flavor is really good. You can really tell whole hops from pellets at least I can. A little more earthy in the flavor. Overall pretty darn good.

Sampled at the Brewpub. It poured a clear copper color with an off-white head. The aroma was of moderate citrus hop and toasted malts. It had a medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. The taste was medium bittersweet with a finish of moderate duration. Nice.

Iím really surprised by the low overall rating of this beer. It is one of the better offering from Upland. The use of Citra hops puts this beer over the top with a great citrusy flavor. Medium bodied, with a clean slightly bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a nice orange color with a nice off white head. Aroma of juicy, fresh hops. Lots of tropical fruit, pineapple and citrus. Favor is mostly fruity, lots of mango and pineapple hoppiness, touches of clean pale malt. Medium bodied, lively carbonation. Finishes with mild bitterness. Quite nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Filtered dulled orange-tan body. Thin, steady white head. Earthy aroma, sort of subdued. The hop flavor is quite strong in the flavor, with some resinous eathiness throughout. Clean and drinkable, but pronounced hop tones. Not really much bitterness or bite, but the trained tongue certainly picks up the Citra. A touch vegetal, but quite nice beer. Well done, enjoyable stuff.

Draft pour. Hazy copper with a white head. Aroma is big dank grass and with some citrus qualities coming through. Lighter on the palate. Easy going bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear golden with an average white head. Aroma consists of pine, grapefruit, and caramel. None of these impressions really stand out, but the nose is rather strong and enticing. The taste is big in pine that is complemented well with caramel. Mild citrus as well, with floral hops underneath throughout. Powerful, yet rather short aftertaste of pine and those floral hops. Medium bodied, sticky in texture, with lots of carbonation. This one is tasty, and there is enough here to make you long for another.
