Had on tap at Lillies in NYC. Please come to MA Cigar City! Why are you not there but we have useless Stella Artois. Any ways....this is a very fruity blast - not overwhelming with the good. Nice 5.5% er. Good work - and screw you Stella Artois

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Golden, maybe a tinge of amber and fairly clear, capped by a thinnish, white head.

Smell: Garden variety pale malts with aromatic hops smelling of green herb of the kind bud variety, sharp citrus and some pine.

Taste: Pale malts, minor hint of toasted grains, a bit bready. Little showing of malty sweetness. Robustly herbal, pulped citrus fruits and (again) some pine. Moderate bitterness. Hop flavors and their imparted bitterness carry one through the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It's a hoppy ale, alright.

12 oz can, canned on 8/21/17. Pours very hazy golden orange with a medium pillowy white head that retains fairly well and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet bready malt with citrus hops.

The flavor is sweet malts with citrus fruit and a bitter grassy hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a nice fruity hoppy pale.

12 oz can...canned 3/23/17 according to the bottom of the can

Pours hazed lighter amber, under a large and frothy khaki cap, leaving all kinds of froth, and thicker lacing all over the glass, nice looking stuff.

The nose is dully of ripe fruits.

Tasty and enjoyable pale ale, with a nice mix of fruity notes and resiny hop notes....with a little perfume/ginger in the finish....yummy stuff...

On tap at the brewery. Golden and clear with a ringing of white tiny bubbles. Aroma is spicy citra. Passion fruit with white pepper. Cracker malt. Taste is like the aroma but lacks as mouth citra flavor as my favorites. Mouthfeel has a longer more bitter finish like a zombie dust and less like a pseudo sue. Overall a good citra pale but a step behind the leaders for me.

Beer pours a brilliant orange color with just a small amount of head (maybe one finger). The smell is tropical, pine and a hint of berry. The taste is more of that of an IPA and that's okay with me. This beer has a nice mouthfeel and is a flavor bomb for an APA. I wish I could get it locally.. Excellent beer.

Yellow golden color, not too cloudy and not overly hoppy. Great Pale Ale! It is relatively smooth,with a good subtle flavor. This one definitely made me a fan of cigar city

12 oz can with a 23 March 2017 canning date stamp.
Pours with a hazy, light amber colored body topped by a large durable but sudsy head. Sticky lacing.
Aroma: hops at a fairly strong level (think IPA); quite complex with tones of citrus, herbs, pine and grass.
Flavor: less complex than the aroma with dominance by citrusy hops, but some additional tropical fruit notes. Faint biscuit. Mild bitterness for style.
Feel: smooth medium body with soft, medium+ carbonation.
