look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Pours a golden orange…luscious, thick head….fairly transparent, I can see some bubble action in the middle…(4.5/5)

Smell: Citra hops dominant…sweet smells of orange and grapefruit...heavy pineapple, sweet luscious pineapple…it’s alive and crisp and mouthwatering…pale and sweet malts help shape and round out the aroma, but this is sweet orange citrus through and through…(5/5)

Taste: Citrus (orange, lemon and grapefruit tasting) hops blending sweetly with pale malts from beginning to end…pineapple...for as citrusy as it is, the pale malts do a great job of balancing everything out…there is a degree of bitterness and floral hops lingering in the background…some floral after taste…(5/5)

Mouthfeel: Light, sweet and crisp…medium carbonation that fluffs a bit…mouthwatering…(4.5/5)

Overall: A fantastic ale…I hate hearing about how good a beer is before I try it, as the case here, but this brew lives up to the hype…the potent citrus flavor is balanced superbly by pale malts that could exist on their own and create a fantastic taste…it’s vibrant and light making it ultra drinkable…I could easily kill a sixer while playing poker or hanging out with friends…highly recommended, this will be an ale you’ll remember…(5/5)

look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Pours a semi-hazy glowing golden orange with three fingers of rocky cream colored foam.

Smell: Big juicy tropical fruit comes wafting out of the bottle. A pungent medley of pineapple, guava, mango, tangerine, and orange marmalade. There's also a touch of honey, a hint of peppery spice, some light floral notes and faint strawberry. I could smell this perfectly fine standing a good two feet from the glass. Easily one of the top 3 best smelling beers I've ever had.

Taste: Pulpy grapefruit, tangerine, sticky pine sap, and raw honey with a lightly toasted, nutty finish. Incredibly smooth with a nice hop bite.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied and well carbonated with a slick mouthfeel from the abundant hop oils. Crisp and tingly on the tongue with a semi-dry finish.

Overall, its easy to see why this wicked pale ale is always in such high demand. Currently at #7 in Beeradvocate's Top 250 Beers, this is truly a marvel. A big, bold, flavorful pale ale gushing with pungent fruity hops. It manages to be complex yet extremely smooth and well-balanced. There's really nothing I would change about this beer. It may technically be labeled an American pale ale, but for me it is the quintessential IPA. It also has one of the best names and label art of any craft beer out there. A beauty to behold.
