COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dry-hopped American Pale Ale made using a secret selection of hops to give this nice dry beer a lemon/lime aroma and citrus & slight tropical fruit flavor. Although this brew Hits the classification of an APA, it drinks like a session IPA perfect for a day on the boat fishing the reef. Reef Donkey is slang for the Greater Amberjack gamefish which inhabit our coastal wrecks and reefs.

superspak (6082) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - NOV 4, 2017
16 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 6/15/2017. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy golden amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty foamy lacing clings down the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, lime, grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, mango, citrus zest, light pepper, pine, honey, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/piney hops and moderate bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, lime, grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, mango, citrus zest, light pepper, pine, honey, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, grassy, zesty, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of lemon, lime, grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, mango, citrus zest, pepper, pine, honey, light caramel, toasted bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/piney hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy/sticky, and slightly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.5%. Overall this is a delicious American pale ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/piney hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the modestly bitter/drying finish. Nicely vibrant and lightly dank hops; balanced malts with no residual sweetness. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

As a beer and wine fanatic, I truly find this beer too bitter for my taste. I was excited to get it, as it just arrived as a new beer at my place of work but I honestly couldn’t bare the taste. I tried and tried again; overall I just wasn’t having it....

keepersj12 (3137) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2017
A very well done APA. Pours golden with a thick white head. The aroma malty sweet, earthy. The taste is sweet to start with just enough hops to balance nicely.
