Pours a cloudy amber with a wistful head; stratospheric lacing throughout.
Smell is tangerine and grapefruit rind. Mild pine. Malty sweet and rich. Just a great tropical aroma. Smells like a double rich IPA.
Citra hoppy front with satisfying drying bitterness. Earthy hop and resinous pine. Sweet malt back that meshes well. This just borderlines par excellance.
Creamy and chewy mouthfeel. Just pure delight.
Move over west coast, ya got a contender. Wow, great impression from a local brewery. This is not just a home run, but a grandslam. I'm not even going to compare this to anything, but this beats a lot of imperials I've had. Basically I'm floored, especially the ABV suits me just fine. Would definitely buy again. 18th street-keep doing whatcha doing.

A: Moderately hazy orange in color. Forms a rather modest-sized fluffy white head. Good retention and lots of lacing.
S: Intensely aromatic. Got to say this is one of the most pungent beers I've come across in some time. And the aroma is fairly complex. There is a slight wooden, caramel malt backbone, then notes of orange, tropical fruit, mango, ambrosia and a slight cattiness.
T: Taste is fairly similar to the aroma, but not as intense. Starts with lots of tropical fruit notes, but there is very little sweetness to complement the hoppy fruitiness. A slight spicy rye quality. Finish is orange, mango, and papaya - though, again, there is little sweetness. The underlying flavor is there, but there is little juiciness.
M: Medium bodied. Somewhat dry with a very mild bitterness. Moderate carbonation.
O: A very nice Pale Ale. Absolutely full of flavor with a very pleasant aroma to boot. Undoubtedly one of the better APAs I've come across in some time.
