Poured into a tulip glass. The liquid is a clear orange-straw, with a thick head on the pour that fades after a few minutes to a nice thick froth on top, with tons of lacing.

Aroma is light citrus, oranges, lemons, with a nice floral character and a light bready malt background. Some hints of cat pee in there as well.

Taste is a bit more floral than the aroma, with the flowers and citrus up front, followed up by the bready malts. The finish is a little bit soapy, with some moderate bitterness, and the aftertaste is citrusy with a little bit of the cat pee flavor. Really, really nice. Gives you nice citrusy hop-burps.

Mouthfeel is thin to moderate, with lots of prickly carbonation.

Overall, really great hop character and nicely well-balanced. I wish I could drink this all the time.

(on tap at Half Acre's taproom - served in a tall, narrow, ~16oz glass)

A: bright golden-amber, slight haze... frothy white foam that leaves lovely drapes of sparkly lace

S: bold, fragrant grapefruit... pancake crust... dry-toasted barley hulls

T: dry, scrape-y bitterness... tad ginger-spicy and dead dunegrassy... naked pale malt aftertaste, toasted edges of a cookie... pretty killer balance and separation between as well as definition of its woody, citrusy, grassy hops and pure grain flavors

M: crisp, clean flow... nearly bone dry finish... polished sort of compact body...

O: not as sharp and tight as I've grown accustomed to... but still a standout, punchy APA

Tall boy thanks to a trade-- an extra!
Color is a clear honey color, with thin white lacing.
Overpowering aroma of funkiness-- sweat.., tangerine oil...
Taste is full of citrus flavors, vanilla, and pine with a mellow, smooth, and creamy finish.
Really impressed with this beer, I definitely want to trade for this and drink more.

Pours a hazy but brightish light copper; medium head with solid lacing. So darn smooth and enjoyable. Balanced and refreshing with great aftertaste. No where near the bite or the complexity of Daisy Cutter's brethren God Hates Astronauts. But at 5.2% should be obvious. Recommended.

Pours a clear, gold color. 2/3 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of citrus hops, hint of earthy malt, sweet malt, hint of alcohol, slight floral hops, and yeast. Fits the style of an American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Bitterness is too prevalent for my preference. Tastes of earthy malt, citrus hops, slight sweet malt, hint of floral hops, and a hint of yeast. Overall, good appearance, earthy malt dominates both aroma and body, otherwise average pale ale.
