A- Light amber color. Looks unfiltered. Nice head and good lacing.
S- HUGE juicy, succulent tropical fruit, orange, grapefruit, light resin, and floral accents. One of the best smelling beers I've ever had!
T- Immensely drinkable. Tropical fruit, orange, grapefruit, pine resin and floral accents. Rye compliments it wonderfully with a nice kick of that spicy rye flavor. Good malt presence as well.
M- Medium bodied and lightly drying. Coats the entire mouth.
O- This was one of the best beers I've ever had, period. The good thing about that is how absolutely sessionable it is. With its huge, thick, succulent aromas and flavor, you would expect its ABV to be much higher. I'm the type of beer drinker who is usually more interested in trying new things, but this beer will be in my fridge from here on out.

truly one of the best beers i have ever had that doesnt include barrels, bacteria cultures, and multiple years to make. its downright flawless, and its simple elegance yet robust flavor profile makes it an absolute champion in my book. this is the kind of beer i like to drink, and like to drink a lot of. a pale ale that doesnt bore, its wonderful. hazy yellow in color, whipped cream topping three inches high on top of my schooner. the nose on this shows citra hops, pungent and lemon forward. the rye malt is subtle in smell, i get maybe a bit of wheat in with the two row here. the taste shocks me for the color, it has some density and probably should look a bit more copper and dense than it does, impressive. furthermore, the flavors are genius. the citra hops are all on the finish, while the front end is peppered with spicy rye malt, but only just enough for this to be different. the other base malts keep it in line with what we expect from a pale ale. the hopping comes as a surprise too, not often are both grain and hops so bright in a beer at the same time, and that is part of the beauty here. sessionable as they come here for my palate. i could drink ten of these and be neither sloppy drunk or bored. the citrus profile of the hops finishes the beer clean, but its still got this lush creamy body that is refreshing and quenching and just addicting. i wish this was available out here all the time, and maybe it well be soon, but this is one of the best pale ales i have ever had, and deserves to be mentioned among the best examples of the style. its everything i could want in a session beer.

2014 BJCP Stlye #23 Specialty beer - reserved for new beers including RIPA's
Poured into two snifters, can came from a brewery visit. Canned on 4/25/14. Bought a week ago.
Appearance is cloudy golden straw. One finger head that dissipates to a small amount. Good lacing. Some clarity noticable through the haze. Smell is the most amazing thing about this beer. Mangos! and lot's of it. Taste is very good and lasting. Mouthfeel is silky and light. Does not dry out or get super piney. Very viscous and resiny finish. I LOVE this beer and will be buying more for sure when I visit them again.
