Clean fresh look with a very distinct aroma. It's not my favorite smell, but it's a definite branding of the beer, it makes it special and very unique. The initial taste is exactly like the smell, unique and natural. It's bold and direct and demands my attention. I don't know that I trust it, but I believe it. It's not my usual taste for beer, but I damn well appreciate it. Much like my boss, it's not my favorite but it's a leader and knows what it's doing.

Poured from a 12oz bottle.

A - Burnt (hazy) orange, tinge of amber. Nice small head with good lacing.

S - Wow, you can probably smell this across the wrong. Knocks your nose off with citrus, orange, pine smells.

T - Great malt backbone with light, refreshing citra hop taste afterwards, crisp finish.

O - Really amazing. The aroma knocked me off my feet, wasn't expecting that. Very solid, looking forward to finishing the sixer.

Poured from a 12oz bottle. No bottle dates but everything about it seems fresh. 2 weeks removed from the brewery.
Look: Hazy orange with good head.
Smell: Awesome! Citrus bomb.
Taste: Better than it smells.
Feel: Just right amount of everything. Well balance of hops, malts, and carbonation.
Overall: A top 3 beer in my books. May even be a bargain compared to most 6-pack of this quality.

A really good pale ale, maybe overrated but certainly strong all around beer none the less.

Draft pour into tulip. Medium Amber with light chill haze. Delicious west coast character with excellent balance between aroma and flavor. Also excellent balance with the bitterness and the malt. Nice lingering bitter finish. Excellent IPA

Some have said this beer is overrated and maybe it is, but that doesn't mean it isn't a fantastic brew.
A- slightly cloudy, orange haze, and off white head with very good lacing

S- Fantastic mix of orange peel, citrus, and pine jump from the glass while a subtle malt sweetness is also apparent

T- Solid malt backbone with a crisp cracker taste dominating; Citra hops create a fruity bitter taste that is very prominent but not overpowering

M- Medium, light body with a crisp dry finish. Medium carbonation that leaves some hop taste on the palate for minutes after drinking.

O- Overall, a very good beer. Although I think it may not be so popular if it were readily available, it is still one of my favorite beers. It is hoppy enough for hopheads, yet balanced and smooth enough to be a session beer (but too damn rare). I will definitely keep my eyes open for more.

Im not a pale ale fan, but with all the hype around this beer I had to give it a shot. delicious Piney, ctrus smell upon opening the bottle. poured into an oversized tulip glass with head less than 1" quickly turning to a nice lacing on the glass. Initial taste is of light fruit with a refreshing lager swallow. Overall i give this brew a 4 (the highest in the category for me)
