johnbuck100 (301) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2013
22 oz bottle from Whole Foods Santa Barbara. 7% ABV. Wow 7% for a pale ale,Not sure of the diff between extra pale ale and IPA, but this really borders on an very clean IPA. Absolutely delicious. crystal clear hop taste with very little malt. all citrus. I love this. But why does the reviewer below me have to hate on Christians?

malrubius (2797) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAR 19, 2017
Bottle from Meditrina. Bright clear gold with lasting dense head and lace. Lemony lemon power floral grapefruit aroma. Light melony grassy sweetness with medium assertive grapefruit lime bitterness in wicked dry finish. Medium-light body lively fine carbo accentuates hops. TOTALLY FUCKING EXCELLENT. Goes down dangerously easy.

hawthorne00 (3817) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle. Pale gold with an inch of white head. 3+ Aroma of grapefruit, herbal lemon more than lime - its almost like the grapefruit has been put under the grill to caramelise it a little. 7+ Sweetish and slightly biscuity with lots of nice citrus and some herbal touches. Didnt get much in the way of tropical fruit. Bitterness is a little lower than expected but its about enough. An agreeable beer but - for me - way too much alcohol for what it offers.

pours a hazy orange from the tap. incredibly fragrant citrus hop bomb. smells like a freshly plucked orange/grapefruit off the tree with a hint of guava. flavors follow suit with juicy pungency. lively palate with a bitter finish.

Bottle. Pours an opaque light Amber. Nose is incredible dank, grapefruit, stonefruit and marmalade notes. Taste is big grapefruit flavours upfront, light pale malts and a nice bitter finish thats not overpowering. Really shows off the citra variety.

22 oz bottle. Bottled on 11/24/15. Thanks Timo A!
Hazy golden color with a small white head. Sweet citrusy and fruity hops, dryness and malt in the aroma. The flavor is... dry malt, leafy hops and some cardboard. This is not right. I shouldnt be rating this old IPA. But will I ever get this fresh? Probably not in Finland. Needs definitely a rerate.
