look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours out a vary hazy goldenstraw capped by a magnificent head that leaves clumps of lacing

Smell: Floral, with citrus, tropical fruit and peach tones; sugary

Taste: The backbone has a bit of wheat bread and biscuit and although it is present from start to finish, the beer is all about the hops, bringing tropical fruit, citrus and peach; the finish is dry but sugary, if that makes any sense

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: All though I have tasted a beer from this brewery once before, this excellent APA (verging on IPA) was totally off my radar; glad to have had the chance to try it

Thanks, mj0126, for the opportunity

Pours a yellow touched amber with barely any head that falls to nothing very fast. Nose was really boisterous at first; calms down pretty quickly. Flavor is insane levels of citrus and pine mixed together. At first it seems way overboard. I suppose I get used to it as time goes on. This is no calm pale ale. Out there and in your face. How much you appreciate this one will probably depend on your personal flavor preferences. And how much the hype train sways your reviews.

Growler thanks to Rudzud

Big fluffy head hits 1+ fingers and fades semi slowly with lots of soapy lacing, slightly hazy mostly clear golden honey colored.

Nose rides plenty of fresh hops, lots of resin and musty hop oils, citrus galore, bit of mango and passion fruit tropical fruit, papaya, slight floral hop, light fluffy airy malt base.

Taste stats with a light fluffy malt, hint of sweetness and plain juicy pale malt. Then hop just take over, fresh citrus hops, again tropical fruit, mango skin, papaya, and the resinous hop character leads to passion fruit again and touch of vinous notes, juicy overall fruit, light musty feel. Finish is dry with a super long fairly bitter tropical fruit, guava, passion fruit, etc, and citrus and resin lingering for what seems like forever.

Mouth is med bodied, decent carb, slightly oily.

Overall very good. Great fresh hops, nice light malty base but enough to prop it up.

Modest head but it leaves plenty of ring lace. Orange amber color and very cloudy.

Strong fresh hop aroma. Plenty of citrus rind and evergreen resin. Floral and attractive.

Bitter up front with a small tapering mid taste. The swallow brings a full black pepper bitter wallop. Long aftertaste. Lip puckering. Definitely hop head lovers beer. Full body with moderate carbonation level.
