22oz bottle poured into an Idle Hands tulip. Received as a great, great extra in a recent trade with Jeffrey2310. Big thanks for the chance to try this one!
A - Pours a pale translucent golden color with a thick finger of frothy white foam that dies to a thick collar and plenty of lacing on the glass after a minute or two.
S - Super citrusy aroma - filled with fresh grapefruit with great intensity. A bit sweaty, lots of tropical fruits - pineapple-y and mango-y. Malt doesn't stand a chance against the onslaught of citra hops here.
T - Thick, resiny citrus thru and thru. Lots of grapefruit and mango. and tons of pine, traces of mint. Solid medium bitterness level with a good sharp edge to it. Mild, dry and biscuity malt in the background with only the faintest hint of sweetness - quite dry overall.
M - Lightish body with a bright, medium carbonation. Flavors give this an impression of heaviness beyond the body itself with its thick, resiny hop presence.
O - Really nice Citra hop pale ale. As one would expect, full of citrusy grapefruit flavors and a big hit of pine. Flavors are dense with hops. Very enjoyable pale ale.

Cool bottle artwork. It looks legit. And not something from a small town Iowa brewery!
Hazy, golden hue with highlights of amber; a bit of chunky yeast sediment was the only “flaw” in this beautiful pale ale. A crown of white foam graces the top of the elixir.
This is the best smell pale ale I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying. Period. The nose was so vibrant and rich; lemon zest, limes, grapefruit, pungent and yet tropical. The malt is distant… let the hops sing. And they hit the high notes. The aroma is now ingrained in my brain. Simply perfect!
The palate was a letdown… ONLY because the aromas were so strikingly amazing. It is delicious and complex and beast of a pale ale. Orange fresh, mangos, lemon zest, pinnacle, citrus rinds, pith with a simple hint of pine and floral. Devine. Mouthwatering good.
A solid medium in body. Ideal carbonation. Good mouthfeel.
Tasty as hell. Drinkable as hell. A superb pale ale. It’s a legit pale ale… it’s not an IPA labeled a pale ale. It is a real deal hoppy pale ale. Really complex and a showcase of the Citra hops. Worth seeking out.
