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

Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass, best before 8/15/15. Pours a bright orange with a one inch white head, that leaves behind plenty of lace.

Smell is tangerine, mango, earthy hops, pine, and grapefruit.

Taste follows well, with tropical citrus up front with pine in grapefruit on the back end.

Body is medium, plenty of life, a touch dry, and easy drinking.

I think this is a really solid pale ale, that I will purchase again

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Bottle. Enjoy by 8/15/14 date.

A: Translucent, deep amber color with an orange hue. Off white head with a nice amount of lace that. Appears slightly oily. Moderate amount of carbonation.

S: Definitely citra. Tropical fruits. Mango. Grapefruit and pine as well.

T: Does not follow the nose as much, as was hoping for a bit more of the tropical fruit notes from the citra hops.

M: Moderately carbonated, and medium bodied.

D: Very drinkable pale ale. One of the better pale ales I have had, and wish this was part of their regular release, as I would buy again. Citra is showcased well, but falls just a tad flat on flavor. That being said, very solid pale ale!

3.71/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is slightly hazy amber yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that rapidly dissipated, leaving only a small patch of bubbles in the center of the glass and a couple of large bubbles around the collar.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose – oranges and grapefruit peel seem to stand out in particular. These become slightly stronger as the beer begins to warm up.
T: Much like the smell, the taste is dominated by flavors of grapefruit and orange citrus and these are accompanied by a very light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and slightly crisp on the palate and has just under a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and can be considered sessionable. It just seems to be missing a few elements such as a little more in the way of bitterness and added carbonation.

This was purchased at the Smoker Friendly on Wheeling Island, you have to check for excessive dust and best by dates when shopping there. This good until August. Poured into my IPA glass a deep orange body with a slightly off white beige head. Aroma is full of a pleasant grapefruit peel/pith, and some extra dankness herbal/marijuana like nose. Pretty much a one dimensional aroma, but a really good smelling consistent one. Flavor super bright citrus, caramelized malts in the back end to provide enough sweetness to counter balance the bitter grapefruit pith/peel additions and supposedly loads of Citra hops. I'm not saying there aren't loads of Citra hops here, but they are hard to pick out amongst the big bitter grapefruit pith notes. Caramelized malts sugars creep in to balance things out, there's nothing wrong with this beer. Mouthfeel is medium bodied mild resinous oils from both the hop additions and grapefruit peels, even flowing carbonation nice dry finish. Overall, impressive offering especially from Harpoon's 100 Barrel Series #50, this has been a hit or miss big bottled series from Harpoon this one is way more hit than miss.
