4.5/5  rDev -2.6%

September 8, 2014

12 oz bottle, weizen glass

A – Pours orange to light amber. Thick finger of head that sticks around for a long time. Mild haze, probably from being poured cold, mostly good clarity otherwise. (4.00)

S – Lots of lemon and other citrus, a bit of fresh cut grass, grapefruit. A hop bomb. Some malty sweetness on the nose but balanced hard towards the hops. Some malt thickness. (4.75)

T – Very malty and then the hops take over. Citrus and grapefruit melts into a perfectly bitter finish. A ton of hop bitterness but really well balanced with the malt. (4.50)

M – Very malty, relatively full body, just a bit of acidity leading into the finish. Bitterness coats the tongue, balanced with malt sweetness. Not a palate wrecker despite smelling like it could be one. (4.50)

O – Having had this before without evaluating properly, I was pleasantly surprised to remember how well balanced it is. There is a ton of hop flavor, aroma, and bitterness, but does not destroy your taste buds. The malt has a great presence as well and really works together with the hops to create a remarkable beer. Great example of the American Pale Ale style. (4.50)

Poured into a nonic a clear medium golden with a large fluffy white crown that settled very slowly into a frothy mass.A big shot of grapefruit hops hits ya in the nose along with some overripe tangerine,a sweetish biscuit malt is noticable as well.A healthy dose of citric hops over top of sweet biscuit on the palate,more fruity hops than bitter.A great pale ale,it has a huge dose of hops but it's actually a pretty rounded palate.

Excited to get my hands on this through a trade. Huge lemon and grapefruit delicious flavors. Wonderful take on a hoppy pale ale, perfect example of what a great pale ale should be.

Like most reviewers, feel like this is more IPA than APA. But technicalities aside, a completely enjoyable drinking experience. The Citra hops can't be missed in this one. Lemon and grapefruit hit you hard at the front and then it finishes with a smooth maltiness. Deserving of its spot in the top tier.

What an incredibly smoothy, hoppy pale ale.

A: I poured a 12oz bottle into a glass and got very little head, but the beer is beautiful burnt orange color.

S: Citrus, lemon, hops!

T: So incredibly smooth. I'm going to need FFF to start shipping this stuff to Boston!

M: Light carbonation, you really feel the beer's maltiness.

O: Delicious and worthy of it's ranking on BeerAdvocate. This is a well rounded pale ale.
