12oz bottle into a wide flute

A: Pours a light orange color with three fingers of dense white head. Beautiful lacing and wonderful retention. A bit darker than what I'm used to for the style, but i won't fault it there.

S: Lots and lots of fresh citrus smells. Almost like smelling fresh lemon and orange peel. I get a bit of floral hops in the background, but this one is a dry smelling citrus bomb. Simply amazing.

T: Fairly significant bitterness starts off with faint floral and citrus hop flavor. Slight sweetness and bready malt flavors work in with the hops. While this flavor is by no means bad or even average, it is a huge disappointment from the aroma. Having subsequent bottles I find the taste a bit more intense.

M: Light, good carb - great for a APA.

O: Interesting. The aroma is very enticing but the citrus hop flavor just isn't strong enough for me. The bitterness is there, but I was hoping to taste those delicious citrus hop aromas I smelled. This is a solid APA for sure, but it's not world class IMO.

Just got this in a trade! Thanks whitemomba! The second I popped the cap on this beer, my nostrils got hit with a huge whiff of hops. Pours a slightly-hazy, golden color with a medium white head that disappears quickly. Scent is very heavy with the Citra hops. Lovely citra aroma with a bit of pine and somewhat earthy notes. Taste just has so much hoppy goodness going on, it's ridiculous. I haven't had Alpha King in a long time, but I remember thinking the same thing: "How do they get such intense hop profile into a pale ale?" Great citra hop flavors with lovely citrus fruit and just the slightest hint of malt. Not sure if this is a fresh hop ale, but it sure tastes like one. An all-citra fresh hop ale. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, somewhat resiny, with a crisp finish. Drinkability is very high. Overall, this is a fantastic pale ale. I would love to do a side by side with Alpha King and Daisy Cutter to see who gets crowned supreme pale ale.

A- Pours a lightly hazed orange with a few streams of rising carbonation. The bone-white head is a combination of thin and bubbly with nice retention.

S- Mango, pineapple, peach, pine, fresh cut grass, and honey. Aromatic and very intriguing. Stellar.

T- Same as the aroma but a little less emphasis on the fruit and a little more on the pine. Still very nice and for the style is top-notch.

M- Abundant carbonation emphasizes the bitterness and flavors. A tad on the thin side. Clean and a bit dry on the finish.

O- A delicious take on the style that drinks really well. Flavorful and unique. Highly recommended.
