Wow. What a great beer! As one whos had his share of IPAs, I find it hard to be bowled over by yet one more IPA--but this is not just one more IPA! The first thing that hits you is that glorious nose of grapefruit and herbs, and the flavor and the mouthful live up to the promise in that first impression. Proof that an IPA doesnt have to be over the top in ABV or IBU to be truly satisfying. I wish I lived in Iowa where I could have access to this regularly.

Porus a hazy nice orange with golden hues and a medium white head. Aroma is nice orange with pineapples. Flavor is same fruity juiciness with orange, pineapples, peaches and some mango at the end. Nice slightly bitter aftertaste. Medium to light body, really refreshing and tasty.

Some pine, grapefruit aromas. Deep yellow color with a huge tanish head. Jan 26/17 date...some fine particles floating about. Sweet up front. Caramel, mixed with pine, grapefruit tones. Watery mouthfeel and muddled finish. Bitterness is dry and flat. Not sure if bad batch or what but average.

Zymurgeist2 (2081) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 17, 2017
From can to pint glass. Slightly hazy orange-gold with full white head. Overt citrus and slight pine. Moderate bitterness and a solid malt backing of cracker. Not overpowering, but solid.

$9/4-pack of 16floz cans purchased in St. Louis Metro East area. Dated 02.01.2017. Consumed 03.16.2017 from an imperial nonic glass. This beer meets the hype as a superb example of an APA. Gold in body topped with two-fingers worth of head. Smells like a musty grapefruit (in a good way). A hopped forward beer where grapefruit and pine battle it out over just enough graininess from the malts. Initial mouthfeel is wet, but it leaves a long dry finish. Although, good in a way, the residual bitterness prevents me from awarding a couple more points. Ive had other citra hop beers providing similar characteristics, yet this one has done the best job.

ccex (1249) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2017
16 oz. can pours a clear golden with lasting foamy white head and clumps of lacing. Nose is strong. Aroma is full of tropical and citrus fruits with some pine. Taste is bitter with only a slight hint of sweet malts in the middle before a long dry finish. Body is medium with average carbonation and a sticky yet crisp mouthfeel. Easily drinkable, despite a wallop of fruitiness. A great American Pale Ale, right up there with Alpha King and Zombie Dust.

16oz can from my mom. Made on dec 20th 2016. Minty citrus. Reminds me of Zombie Dust which I had a couple nights ago. Definitely balanced with a grapefruit finish. No ABV listed on can.

Bright gold and clear with a persistent white foam. Im a fan of the Citra hop with its citrus and grapefruit flavors. Not too bitter. Easy to drink!
