There is something about this beer that separates it from all the other excellent APAs and DIPAs I've ever had...
The beer pours a light rusty orange with an off-white head. The beer's nose is incredibly dank and defines a crisp citra hoppiness. However, there is plenty of malt sweetness, which makes a huge impression on the beer's taste and mouthfeel. Thankfully the abrasively bitter hops didn't melt off my eyebrows and taste buds because the mouth watering, bitter-dry finish makes this beer something special. I would easily drink this beer all day and actually have trouble not finishing it within 5 minutes after opening. Get your hands on some and thanks Pellinore1 for the hook-up.

Thanks to Dunn for bringing this back from his travels.

A - bright orangish amber with a thin lacing of white head

S - very flora, spicy, citrusy

T - spicy, peppery, floral, grapefruit

M - medium bodied, smooth, well carbonated

This has a huge floral hop character with some spicy, citrusy notes as well. It's incredibly hoppy, incredibly drinkable and very smooth. I'm glad I have a few more bottles to enjoy.

Served in a shaker pint glass bottled.

A - Bronze amber slightly opaque with 2 finger khaki head with excellent head retention and good frothy lacing.

S - Grapefruit, pine, sweet floral hops, and caramel malt and cracker bready yeast.

T - follows the nose...into the pearly gates. Amazing hops tones, a great balance with the sweet caramel malt and just a touch of alcohol. Like drinking hops while sitting in the hanging gardens and smelling the sweetest of breezes.

M - medium body, moderate carbonation. Smooth as hell.

O - the best apa in the world. Check.
