4.41/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Bottled 3/31/14, poured into a Teku glass

A- pours a bright and clear amber color with a two-finger foamy and creamy white head that retains nicely, leaving some thick patches of lace behind

S- big kick of pungent hops up front with notes of grapefruit, orange peel, fresh cut grass, mango, mint leaves and guava. Underlying sweet malt adds a light aroma of fresh baked bread

T- tropical fruity hop notes up front mix with some grassy and floral notes, fresh mint, leafy and herbal. Malty sweetness kicks in that balances the hops nearly perfectly, adding slightly toasty flavor with a sweet finish

M- medium body with medium prickly carbonation lead to a foamy mouthfeel and a crisp finish

O- It's impressive how they manage to pack that much hop punch into the beer, yet still keep it balanced like a good pale ale. It took me for years to land a bottle of this stuff and it's definitely one of the three best pale ales I've had to date.

Aroma is super Citra, almost minty. Very juicy and fresh, and dank. Miles of hop, and juuust barely enough malt to hold it up and keep a balance. Lemon, orange, and bright zesty herbs. Flavor is loaded with juicy citrus, light pine, and zesty brisk herbs. Very nice smooth and prickly mouthfeel. Quite swirlable and some kind of juicy explosion in the mouth. Stinkier hop presence as it warms up. A delight for the having...

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Tasted On: 11-16-2011
Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle
Glassware: Globe glass
Purchased: Received in the US South LIF

Color is a hazy dark yellow/orange. The head is off-white and frothy, of maybe 2 fingers in height. Retention is good and lacing is very good.

Aromas are of hops, hops and more hops, featuring floral, grassy, citrus and tropical fruit characteristics.

Taste is crisp, clean and very bitter, with little malt presence. Mouthfeel is somewhat sticky in the body and highly carbonated. Aftertastes are of hoppy, citrus bitterness.

As a vehicle for highlighting the Citra hop, this beer delivers well. Not a style I'm crazy about, but execution is excellent.

Thanks to Janderson91 for this one!

Pours golden orange with a nice white head. Aroma of sweet tropical and citrus fruits with bit of a sweet bready malt underbelly. A very nice sweet and juicy flavor of some tropical and citric fruits, less malt presence in the flavor than was in the aroma. A nice, medium, active body. Overall, awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome beer. Tops the list of APA's for me, wish I had consistent access to this.

Poured a hazy golden orange with a thin off white head with some lacing on the glass. Smells and tastes fantastic. Citrus fruits come through along with a piney resinous aroma with a slight but present malt backbone. The taste is much of the same; tough to put this one down after each sip. Glad I was able to get a sizer in a trade. It will be missed until next time!
