Enjoyed on tap in a straight pint glass.

A- Light copper, high degree of clarity, one finger of white head.

S- Lots of papaya, mango, and pineapple, and citrus. Not much else really just a huge hop presence.

T- Light sweetness, fruity flavors of tropical fruits, some light bitterness on the end with some light toasted malt.

M- Medium, really easy drinking. Not watery at all.

O- This is an amazing beer that really straddles that APA/IPA line. This is the best showcase of Citra hops that I have encountered. Thirsty Dog's Citra Dog and Odd Side's CPA try to imitate but don't even come close. Really tried to go in not expecting to be blown away and I would suggest everyone try to do that. It's not a DIPA but just a very aromatic and full hop flavored pale ale that you could drink all day and not get sick of. Definitely worth a drive for your 2 case limit.

HOPS!!! BITTERNESS?! Huge hop nose....beer is fueled by aroma hops. After smelling the hops and then taking a drink you are pleasently surprised how non-bitter it is given the amount of smell they emit. It is very well done and a true suprise of the top 10 in an American Pale Ale.

A: Pours a nice anger/ orange color with some haze. Forms a full white head that slowly dies. Lots and lots of lacing in this beer.

S: You can smell this beer from a foot away and it smells great. Floral hops, citrus, lemon zest. In the background is some pine, grass and malt. The floral hop aroma is really outstanding.

T: The citrus/ floral hop flavors hit first with a dry bitterness to the finish. Some pine and hay flavors present even stronger than in the smell. This beer is a study of balance and contrast.
I enjoyed this beer more once it warmed up and the flavors became more pronounced. I usually drink pale ales cold, but this one is good enough to enjoy at cellar temperature.

M: Nicely carbonated as benefits the style. Fuller bodied than most pale ales, the very dry finish leaves you wanting more.

O: This is a quality beer. The hype may have exceeded what you get in this beer, but you will not regret giving it a try. Not overly complex, but very flavorful for the style and very nicely balanced. An enjoyable drinking experience.
