Bottle from Santa ;-) - many thanks, Blafa! The beer pours out in a light cloudy amber colour with steady head and medium body. Wonderful aroma of hops and vanilla. Taste of fresh, ripe hops, citrus, spruce, coriander, pink pepper and malt. Medium dry, light bitter finish - great beer. Easy and nice to drink, delicious, refreshing AND quaffable.

Bottle. Poured pale amber with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma and flavor are well-balanced between the lovely Citra hops (tropical fruits and citrus) and a deep caramel. Medium body. Extremely drinkable. Extraordinary beer.

I wanted to try this beer because of all the hype. Got one in a trade with evil cougar (thanks Jeff). Pours a golden honey color with small white head. Leaves lacing on glass. Beautiful citrus aroma. Sweet malty taste upfront followed by bitter citrus finish. Creamy mouthfeel with excellent carbonation. If I was a pale ale fan this would be my favorite beer. Well made excellent beer.

This is a 65kg wrestler kicking asses of 50-55kg wrestlers. Definitely one of the best if not the best "APA", but closer to Pliny than to Sierra Nevada pale ale. After drinking a few Three Floyds bitter american ales from APA to IIPA you can definitely taste a house flavor. Yeast seems English and similar to Firestone Walker. Tropical fruit and citrus on the nose with the standard grapefruit bitterness from Citra. A great beer.

I feel like this beer is truly one of a kind. I was lucky enough to score a few of these bad boys and enjoyed them 100%. Pours perfectly with bright orange color and a large head. Smells like grapefruit and marijuana. I can not explain this. I get lemongrass, spice and a perfect malt to balance the hops out. I like that this sits in under 7% because I often find that I want to continue drinking beers like Rampant by New Belgium or Hop Juice by Left Coast, but I cant handle more than 3 beers in a quick sitting. If I want IPA, I want this. Always. Just sucks its so limited. Hands down the best Pale Ale Ive had in a very, very long time.

A hazed honey amber body sits beneath a tall, slightly delicate yet smooth head leaving spots and dots of lace all around

At cooler temps, crisp citrus rind and hints of grass are balanced by sweet caramelly malts, a lightly resonating, strikingly dry medium-light palate offers a bit of tact after a few quaffs, fresh leafy hop notes, a juicy grapefruit character comes into play with some warmth, followed by peach accents, each bringing an added layer of vitality to this very fittingly named bone dry brew

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2015 Ive heard a lot of hype about this beer and was really eager to try it. Definitely lives up to the hype! Tasted from bottle that my wife was able to acquire...thanks Susan. Pours a hazy orange with a great fluffy white head. Lot of lacing. Big time citrus aroma! Robust grapefruit and mango notes. Taste is similar to the nose with citrus bitterness but its incredibly balanced with caramel sweetness. Dont Get me wrong its a hoppy beer but its a nice constant bitter taste mixed with the sweetness. Has a nice crisp mouthfeel medium bodied overall. Just a phenomenal beer. Drink and enjoy! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
