3.68/5  rDev -9.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours golden from the bottle, a thin head subsides into just a light film over the top of the glass. Leaves little to no lacing in the glass.

Smell is predominantly of hops, however an over-ripe citrus aroma (almost like an apple-based wine) also appears.

Taste is overwhelmingly hoppy, with the aftertaste being more like a wheat beer such as Boulevard. The crisp qualities are there of a pale ale, but the aftertaste did not have the same hoppy bitterness that was picked up in the nose and initial taste.

(Edit... As the beer warms the hops become more prevalent in the aftertaste, but it is still wheaty)

Very crisp and extremely light in the mouth. Easy to go through a bottle without really realizing it.

4.4/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass. Best by date of 9/10/14.

Appearance: Pours a bright golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Big three finger off white head with decent retention. Leaves a good amount of lacing.

Smell: A fruity, earthy, and floral hop forward aroma with good hints of citrus and grass. Big presence of citrus hops with hints of grapefruit, orange peel, lemon, mango, and pineapple. Big floral and herbal hop presence with earthy hints of grass and pine resin. Solid malt presence with hints of caramel, grains, cracker, and yeast. A very solid hoppy aroma that is very IPA like.

Taste: Like it smells, a very earthy and juicy hop forward taste with good notes of citrus fruit and grass. Upfront presence of citrus hops with notes of grapefruit, orange, mango, lemon, pineapple, and melon. Earthy and floral hops with notes of damp grass and pine resin. Good backing of malt with sweet notes of caramel, cracker, grains, and yeast. Very hop forward. A very nice taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy and fairly oily and chewy. Finishes dry and smooth.

Overall: A really good take on a APA. Very good taste of citrus and earthy hops with a nice malt backing. One of the better hop forward versions of the style.

Cloudy, orange in color, and with a heavy white head of foam, this beer emits a fragrant nose of mango, flowers, and herbs. The generous head of foam leaves a good deal of lace as you drink and it looks quite nice atop the orange colored body.

This beer has a delicious flavor profile that features flavors such as pine, melon, grapefruit, grassy hops, and biscuit malts. It has a zesty/tangy flavor profile that makes it a great summer brew even if it is a little bitterer than the typical summer beer.

I’m impressed with this beer, as I have been with most beers from this world class brewery. The fruity, floral character and light but not too light body seem just right for a hot Texas day. This is certainly a beer I will be looking for each and every summer.
