4.13/5  rDev +1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pour: Golden yellow in color with a slight haze. Two fingers of frothy white head that had excellent retention and left all sorts of lacing on the glass.

Smell: Predominantly grapefruit hop aromas on this one, supported by a pale malt sweetness. Hints of tart fruit as well.

Taste: Things kick off with a tart fruity taste (not sure exactly what it is - green apple maybe?) supported by a sweet pale malt backbone. Biscuity middle and finishes up with a moderate grapefruit and pine hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium with medium carbonation. An apparent smoothness, and a dry finish.

Drinkability/Overall: Quite sessionable but the alcohol sneaks up on you. Good flavors, not filling, and refreshing. Great summer brew.

Final Notes: This is a great beer, and easily one of the best summer seasonals I've had. Bordering on IPA territory but retains the refreshment and lighter character of the APA style. Good utility beer. (937 characters)

Enjoyed this wonderful brew on tap. Poured into a pint glass; it's a lovely, clear golden color with dense white foam that leaves lacing down the glass.
The aroma is citrus, pineapple and mango and a hint of candied fruit and sweet biscuit.
The taste SO delivers. Lots of tropical fruit and citrus with a hint of pine bitterness at the end.
The mouthfeel is awesome! Smooth and creamy. The alcohol is totally hidden.
Overall, a delicious and very refreshing pale ale. Among my favorites in this style. (501 characters)

12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is bready malts and fruity, resiny hops with a little peppery spice.

The flavor is some sweet malts followed by a citrusey, resiney hop finish. Not a ton of bitterness but the flavors are good. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a very well done and easy drinking APA. (424 characters)

12 ounce bottle, purchased at Gomer's in Kansas City. 101709 is stamped on the label, not sure what it tells us....anyway this tasty offering pours slightly hazed yellowy amber, decent retention on the off white head and respectable froth and strandlet of lace left on the glass. herbal and citric nose...grapefruit infused ale, fruity,fairly tart and bitingly bitter, especially in the finish. Hop heads rejoice and go and get some of this tasty nectar (453 characters)

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Nonic Imperial Pint.

Appearance: Bright yellow with a touch of haze. Nice foamy white head and light lacing lines.

Smell: Very tangy orange and other citrus, with mild pine and grainy caramel malts.

Taste: Mostly orange-like hop oils with just barely sweet grainy caramel malts providing balance. Ends with bitter notes of spice and pine.

Feel: Moderate carbonation, smooth and oily but fairly light body, dry finish.

Drinkability: Lots of hop oils for an APA, making this a fairly unique beer for the style. However, despite the hop oils, it does not stray into IPA territory. Very drinkable with lots of flavor. Pretty impressive overall. (684 characters)

This is hoppy as most IPAs. Not too bitter in the finish. Big flavor. (69 characters)

Received one bottle as a gift from a very very cool aunt of mine.
Poured into a squat pilsner glass. Small head, scant lingerings on the glass (my friends like to call this the "thigh" of the beer).

S - Not much to report here; malt and light hops. It's a pale ale.

T - Gentle malt middle (hints of herbs, tangerine) reeled in by a lingering bitter-hop backend

M - restrained, malty body trades blows with jagged carbonation for a stimulating trip

Tasted a week after I'd undergone sinus surgery, so my sense of smell was a little wonky. I'd been through a string of aggressively hoppy beers (Lagunitas lucky 13, Two Bro. Hop Juice, Hop Ottin') and this was a nice break. Hoppy, but not too hoppy. Cheers! (713 characters)

Bottle (2012)

Thanks for opening this with me, Josh!

Hazed golden in color with a moderately sized off-white head that leaves lines of lacing down the glass.

Some citrus, bread, and earth in the aroma. Simple enough, and nice.

The flavor is similar to the aroma, with a fairly high level of bitterness for the style, bread, earth, and citrus combining for a nice enough pale.

Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation.

Above average. (442 characters)
