12oz. Pours medium golden with a nice sticky white head. Tropical fruit, grass, and caramel show. Nice tangarine, melon, and mango from the hops. Nice carbonation and body. Super drinkable and well executed.

Poured into a tulip glass (for the hell of it) from a 12oz bottle. A straw tint of yellow with great foamy head that is slow to dissipate. Aroma is a hop explosion; citrus, a little grassy, with just a hint of sweetness on the nose. Beer tastes as good as it smells and goes down great. I really enjoyed this beer and am glad I have one more waiting for me to enjoy.

355mL thanks to tastybeer! Possibly unfresh ticking bottle thanks to Sahara Mart. Thick white lacing atop a hazy orange pour. Nose at first blasts some fruity NZ hops with spicy Belgian IPA yeast. Aroma hops conflict with some oxidized apple juice. Taste is quite dusty, heavy newspaper, plastic. Chalky, papery palate to the max. Probably heat damaged or old.

MrBunn (2868) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle. Ridiculous pour... simply unacceptable to have an entire glass of foam with no liquid on an APA. When the dust settles (I’m at the ten minute mark now) there is a thin layer of fairly clear gold at the bottom of six or seven inches of foam. Aromas are OK, but subdued. A little bit of grain dust and tropical fruit are about all I pick up. Surprisingly, the flavor is not of infected beer, but it is a kind of muted APA with Galaxy hops. I have to wonder whether this would have stronger hop punch with less carbonation. It’s an alright beer I guess, but a little annoying and I would like to try it again without the carbonation issues.

Mild hops aroma. Very light amber color. Flavor is bright hops bitterness with a little bit of malt. Decent IPA. Not up there with the elite IPAs, but pretty darn good.

GTAEgeek (2569) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 10, 2013
12 oz. bottle from a trade with Fletche00. Pours a hazy caramel color with a big, pillowy, cream colored head, and good lacing. The first thing on the nose is massive grapefruit, followed by some butterscotch, pine sap, and light resin. The flavor is sweet and juicy up front, with an aggressive hop bitterness in the finish. The bitterness lingers in the aftertaste, tapering off to a light sourness. Medium to heavy body, sticky, and chewy. Overall, this is a big, thick beer, especially given the ABV. The hop aroma is brilliant, but the bitterness is a little off-putting. Still, this is an very good pale ale.

Draft at a constant spring. Pours clear copper with a small white head. The aroma Has hints of peach, pineapple, floral notes. The taste has a dry bitterness, a sweet dry pineapple juice. Very nice!

Draft pour. Pours a hazy copper with a white head of foam. Aroma is big tropical fruits, juicy citrus, and just a hint of pine. Juicy bitterness. Very refreshing. Delicious beer and outstanding for the style.

bottle. glass full of foam. fades to a stable, rocky, beige color. cloudy orange beer. piney, earthy aroma. bitter flavor. slightly over hopped imo for a PA. not very sweet. medium bodied. head retention like an ice cream float you could cut with a knife. funny spicy tannic flavors.

Draft. From notes. Loads of citrus and caramel. Very good. I would gladly drink this again.
