Overall amazing on par with Sue and other top APAs. Sweet, not too bitter, perfect feel with a smooth finish. Very balanced with plenty of depth and highly drinkable. Surprised by the critical reviews.
Pours nice amber with a bit of off white head. Smell heavy on citrus orange and lemon. Taste right on par with nose and a nectar like feel in a medium body.

Pours a hazy orange color, half finger of head, nice lacing

Smells like the green label, just with more pungent citrus, grapefruit, still some tropical, pine, very close to Sue

Taste is pine, tropical fruit, grapefruit, cantaloupe, orange peel, earthy hop flavor, sweet underlying malt, HUGE and I mean IPA or bigger huge Grapefruit bitterness on the back end, and it sticks around!

Mouthfeel is medium, average carbonation, finishes rather wet, not drying at all.

Great APA, I feel both of the XHOPS are very similar to SUE the Red more then the Green but both have that familiar flavor, Yeast?, Water?, Hopping schedule? Whatever it is I am not complaining, they are all great and have there differences.
