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.

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.
