2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Drank at harpoon brewery, hoppy aroma, amber color with tan head. Can taste the citra hops through it
Bottle to tulip. Hazy orange, thin white head. Nose is grapefruit and... must? If this were wine, I’d start wondering about it being corked. Taste is a nice, robust ale, with modest bitterness. Grapefruit comes through primarily on the finish, and aftertaste fades from fruit to a more bitter pith. A mix of nice, drinkable ale with some odd, less than pleasant aspects (nose and aftertaste). obguthr (6357) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Orange peel, lillies nose. Clear amber, headless. Orange peel, marigold. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Solid bitterness. Good. samsmith33 (772) - - APR 11, 2015
Bottle to pint glass.
Appearance: very bright gold color. Full white head settled into a lady sheen.
Aroma: citrus and hops, light grass or gay. Subdued, subtle.
Taste: lemon grapefruit. Slight hops. Cane sugar. Very yummy.
Feel. Very much alive. Incredibly well balanced and drinkable. About to wash down my curried chicken salad on a biscuit.
A really nice refreshing beer. Perfect on a nice day with lunch. This would be a great beer at the beach.

Pours a light copper from a bottle. Aroma is a citrusy hoppiness, I’ll admit to never having been aware of the flavor profile of Citra hops, but you can pick up the dry hopped Cascades a bit on the nose. The grapefruit cited in the description is almost nonexistent, I feel like I only pick up on it when I burp. A nice balanced sweetness, not too bitter, but good hoppy flavor. A good beer, a nice representative of the style. JoeMcPhee (9427) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2015
Deep amber pour with a thin white head. The nose is a bit sweet and some odd pale crystal malt sweetness. Has a little bit of a citrusy character and a touch of iced tea. The hops are fairly light and kind of odd. Moderately hoppy and a little bit fruity as well. Has a touch of caramel. Decent but not the greatest use of Citra hops.

Bottle... Pours clear and amber with a small, white head that’s gone faster than you can say “quick.” The aroma is an unfortunate blend of cat pee, funky armpit and pine sap. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. The flavor displays nice balance. Tasty and bitter. Thin but nice. The pungent nose ruins the experience for me.

2014-12-09. Dark orange body nice beige head. 3+ Aroma has an interesting savoury quality I can’t quite place over mild fruit and grain character. Flavour is cereally caramel malt, pleasantly fruity hops, nice citrus notes but the grainy malts dominate over the otherwise lovely hops. Average plus bodied palate, good carbonation. Meh, okay but but far too malty for my tastes. Bottle shared by JoeMcPhee. Emeister84 (2505) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Fresh hop aromas, citrus, pine, tropical fruit. Slightly hazy orange-gold, somewhat lasting white head. Dry, decent bitterness, crackery malts. Light bodied. Dorwart (2590) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Good sized light orange head of fine and dense bubbles. Reduces slowly to a rocky top dense head of foam. Light citrus, fresh tobacco, some oranges and mint. Color is a medium dirty orange. Light and bitter flavor with more mint, oranges, cereal grains and biscuity malts. Finishes with a light lingering bitterness and some fresh herbal flavors. An ok pale ale.

Juicy notes of citrus and sweet fruit meet the nose, while a cloudy amber pour produces a thin non-lasting off-white head and minimal lacing. The taste is dominately grapefruit along with hints of fruit sweetness and malts. A nice bitter fnish which extends into a long aftertaste. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, this brew lives up to its name providing a crisp and very refreshing taste experience.
