This beer poured out as a golden color until the sediment came out of the bottle. Then the beer changed to more of a grayish color. The head was white and leaves a thin film over top of the beer. The smell of the beer had some malty aromas and some hops. The taste of the beer gives off the flavors of lemon upfront and finishes with a malt base. The mouthfeel of the beer is smooth and a decent carbonation. Overall this beer wasn't as impressive as I expected it to be. It was good but not great in my opinion.

Thanks to Markasparov for this one! 4172012 stamped on bottle. i guess that means 4/17/12? Whatever. I drank this around the 20th of June. Here are my notes/rating. 500ml poured into a pint glass.

a- pours a cloudy, yellow color with almost of a green tint to it? Has about half inch of white, foamy head and leaves behind almost no lacing.

s- strong citrus, sweet oranges, very bright smell. almost like pine sol.

t- bright citrus hops, a good deal of bitterness considering it's an APA, mild bready maltiness, and abit of pepper-iness/spice.

m- super drinkable beer that's incredibly flavorful. has a barely noticeable chalkiness.

o- I should just move up north. i could drink this, heady, and gandhi bot for the rest of my life and not need or anything else.

I had this on tap at Al's served chilled in a snifter.

The color is lightly hazed lemony golden with thick cream with ultra fine bead, lace sticks well and retention is above average. The smell is so vibrant with lots of citrus zest and lemongrass with slight herbal and tangerine odor. The feel is good with semi-resinous and moderately highly carbonated with mild sweetness and low astringency with semi-high bitterness for the style with mostly dry finish.

The first thing I think of when I taste this is fruity trix- it has a lemony orange taste from the hops with citrus zest and slightly herbal grassy sweet tinge with mild pepper note in the back with very juicy lemon and pepper type cohesion. I loved this as it was refreshing on a hot 90+ day and the hop flavor is so fresh it is a great example of the style, I only wished I had tried this sooner.
