Bottle purchased at the source. Ive tried this a fare amount of times now. Picked up a case to take home from Dark Lord Day. Pours a hazy orange/ copper colour, with a fluffy white head. Lacing is spiderweb like. Aroma is absolutely amazing, mango, piles of citrus hops. Tastes is a complete balance between bitter and sweet. Obviously hops. True perfection in beer form. The best.

12 oz bottle from a trade with zach. Thanks. Pours a hazy brass color with a medium white head that has fair retention. The aroma is strong with mixed citrus, mostly oranges, but also some lemons and limes. The flavor mirrors the aroma, with a big blast of oranges, grapefruit, lemons and limes. The malt base was just a tad bit sweet and worked well with the hops. The palate was full and silky smooth with lively carbonation. The finish is long and dry with lingering oranges. Overall: A first rate pale ale. I loved it.

From tap @Mikkeller. A bright orangey body, under a dense low blond cap of foam. Crisp and inviting fruity hop aroma. Tropical fruits and superfresh citrus hit the nose. Also a catty note, and hint of resiny hop oils. Appropriate light-bodied. Clean in the mouth. The flavor emphasizes the qualities of Citra hops really well. Fresh ripe citrus fruit flavor with tones of gooseberries and passion fruit. Dry pale malts in the backbone. Tight and fresh fruity bitterness in lasting finish. Simple and inviting, and easy drinking. I just love this one.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of sweet citrus, pine, grapefruit, and fruity hoppiness. Flavor was hoppy and moderatly bitter with citrusy fruity hops, piney resin, grapefruit, and some light caramel with a long and bitter finish.

Bottle via trade through PUBR,, the Pennsylvania Underground Beer Railroad, and while we were trading this we pissed on a PLCB emblem and shoved some pins in a Wendell Young voodoo doll. The pour is turbid, thick, dark straw, and has a 3-finger off-white head that laces well. Nose is like Dreadnaught; and in fact in a blind test I trust I could not detect the difference. Huge piney hops with tons of honeydew, tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, and black pepper all over the place. Definite 10 for nose. Tastes rich, complex, with huge pineapple, tangerine, honeydew, grapefruit, black pepper, and the full profile of my favorite hop, Citra. If I ever remarry, it will be to a Citra hop cone. This one just juices all over the place, all over your taste buds with the aroma filling the olfactory glands, and the taste continuing down the esophageal membranes. even the hop burps on this one smell great. If you can get this one, it is certainly worth your time. I just hope we can keep the eBay scumbags away, and I sincerely hope this review does not spark a wave of trading online, although to be honest I am starting to think that not only does Nick Floyd tolerate the inflated trading of his beers; but he clandestinely encourages it, as with Hollywood, "all publicity is good publicity".

Golden tan pour into an imperial pint glass, inch or so of thick white head. Sweet hoppy aroma that is a bit subdued. Aromatic hoppy flavor, it goes down too smoothly. Fruity hoppy aftertaste.

12oz bottle I had while visiting friends in Chicago- This is beer packs the most citrusy, passionfruity hop aroma/flavor that has ever graced my mouth. I was completely blown away by this one, a truly world-class brew!

Traded for a six-pack while down in Asheville, NC. This pale ale is a rockstar, from the iridescent label to its shine in the glass to the way it lights up all your taste buds on the way down. Stellar in every way. So glad we've got five more of these superstars! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
