Tall can (thx, Charles G.!). Canned on 2017-10-25. Pours a cloudy blonde with a huge white head. Aroma is crazy juicy with lots of tropical fruits. Taste is similar with piney hops bitterness, not that rich as aroma, though. Body is huge first as for APA, but it fades after. Like from 4 to 3 or even 2 out of 5. Very unusual. I do use these words again for another BBCO beer, hehe. Very nice. egajdzis (6776) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2017 Hazy golden color with a medium white head that left nice lacing on the glass, Floral hops, citrus, tropical fruits, orange, grass, grapefruit. mansquito (6971) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 4, 2017
From my brother: pours murky yellow with a white head. Aroma is orange, sugar, some other fruitiness. Taste is fairly citrusy. Some dry bitteress is in there while still being quite juicy. Some pointed out this is more an IPA... I do jot think they are wrong but the lines are blurred. voyageurmike (512) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2017
Draft at the brewery. Cloudy light yellow. Too much grapefruit hops for a pale ale, more an IPA. trapped (3668) - New York, TURKEY - SEP 25, 2017
Can. Pours hazy dull yellow with small foamy whitish head, citrus aroma, medium carbonation, mildly bitter citrus peel taste, smooth body, long bitter finish. More hoppy than expected.

Can, by way of a trade. Full on, turbid, pale gold. You could make blackout curtains out of this stuff. Frothy, glossy, sticky, white head. Looks great, if you like that kind of thing. Nose has orange sorbet. Grapefruit juice. Grapefruit with brown sugar tipped on. Some pine needle in there. Then there's a backdrop of sweet, strawberry shortbread malts, and sticky oats. Taste is sweet for a minute, turning citric peel and pithy bitter. Creamy mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Finishes oaty sweet, and pithy bitter in equal measure. Nice one.

Notes of Corn chip Fritos, sneaker, malt, honey, medium Bodied. Murky look. Funky malrubius (3044) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 29, 2017
Can from Meditrina. Cloudy very pale yellow pink. Looks exactly like canned grapefruit juice with a head and lace. Aroma of doughy canned grapefruit juice. Mild fruity bready sweetness with medium bitter grapefruit finish. Medium light bready soft body with fine slightly fizzy carbo. Basically canned grapefruit juice with fizz. I realize these are all the rage now, but I prefer something slightly less one-dimensional and less rustic. Handypaul (582) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 16, 2017
Can. Pours very hazy milky-yellow with a white, quickly disappearing, frothy head that leaves poor lacing. Aroma of lightly sweet floral and pine. Medium bitter, light body, thin feel, average carbonation, flavors of lemon quick and light grapefruit and a fairly long very bitter finish. Not very exciting.

The appearance was a hazy yellow creamy color with a quickly dissipating finger’s worth of white foamy head. Rings of lace stick to the sides nicely.
The aroma grips a big orange juice to rind-like bitterness. Light pine, grapefruit rind, lemon zest and some lemon rind bitterness provide an ample balance.
The flavor leads with the bitterness of the rind and pegs down the sweetness of the fruit to drive further underneath. Sly bitter rind-like aftertaste and same sort of finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Low carbonation feels good. The wheat helps to scale back the bitterness nicely.
Overall, pretty good APA that I could have again. It’s a bit different and almost comes across like an AIPA but I get what’s going on.
