look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pour in to a tulip resulted in a 1 finger, mildly rocky, white head. Slightly hazy, orange colored body.

Aroma was pleasant. Some good orange/tangering aromas with some light tropical notes. A bit bready and malty along with some light sweetness and caramel. Didn't smell overly "bright".

Flavor was good for a APA. Nice amounts of tropical and tangerine flavors up front that led to some biscuity and caramel notes. Nice malty background backs up the mellow bitterness. Bitterness lingers a tad. A bit grassy. Definitely tropical/tangerine/orange flavors that linger around a little. Showcases the Citra nicely.

Medium/light body with medium carb. Crisp and dry finish lets the hops shine.

Good beer overall, especially for being single hopped. Malt flavors play nicely with the Citra hop. Good balance.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 4/28/2014. Pours crystal clear deep orange amber color with a 2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, bread, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity and balance of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate caramel/bready malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, bread, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, bread, light pine, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity of citrus/tropical hops and moderate caramel/bready malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, lightly creamy, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice citra pale ale. All around good complexity and balance of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate caramel/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

This Apa pours a surprisingly dark copper color with an ample off white head that has good retention and leaves nice lacing. The aroma is bursting with grapefruit and pineapple with a significant malty under current. Flavor is unfortunately not as nice as the nose. It seems muddled and stale with a very buttery quality. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and fairly smooth. This was just okay. Won't be buying it again.
