A: Pours a hazy orange with a decent head and sticky white foamy lacing all around the glass for most of the beer.

S: Aromas of grapefruit and pine, little bit caramel scent.

T: Kind of bitter with a citrus profile. Very pleasant aroma. At 6.4% its teetering on the edge of IPA, but whatever, just a classification anyway. Very well rounded with bitterness, aroma, hops, and caramel flavors.

M: Highly carbonated and stings the tongue with a medium body for an APA. Absolutely love it.

O: Overall this is a solid APA, strong and well flavored. After all the commotion this beer has caused in the forums for the past year or so Its definitely good, and I drink it all the time probably because of convenience but still it is one of my favorites.

Split the purchase of a case of this at the 15 Anniversary party.

Served chilled in my new 15 Annuversary glass.

A: Wonderful golden honey hue. Foamy white to finger head that is slow to dissipate.

S: Citra hops! Fruity pineapple and orange notes.

T: This beer really showcases the citra hops. Strong taste of pineapple on the nose that gives way to the perfect amount of bitterness to finish off the taste.

M: Light body with a good amount of carbonation. Sime oiliness from the hops. Well done to the style.

O: This stuff deserves the hype. Great beer!

Had this on cask at Clark Street Alehouse in my first ever trip to Chicago.

A: Golden yellow with about two to three fingers of head.

S: Lots of citrus, grapefruit, and a little pine in the background. Wonderful aroma.

T: The citra hops really shine in this beer. Strong citrus and grapefruit flavors, followed by some grassy pine notes.

M: Medium mouthfeel, almost creamy. Still went down exceptionally well.

O: This was my first try of a FFF offering and I am thouroughly impressed. I think I just found my favorite APA. A must try beer.

12 oz. bottle from Woodchopper. pours a honey gold with a one finger head, fades to spotty lace. the nose on this one is off the charts, full of orange, mango and apricot. taste is sweet caramel malt with a nice balance of lingering yet mild bitterness. very nice and I’d love to sit down and have 2 or 3 of these, but if I had to choose between this and Alpha King, I’d go with with the King.

A - Orange with a 2 finger white head.

S - Pine, sweet, and very grassy. Reminds me of certain green teas in it's grassyness.

T - Grassy, pine, a slight bit of citrus. Good amount of bitterness.

M - Medium, good amount of carbonation.

O - A great "Pale ale". Drinks much more like an IPA, minus the honey.
