Pous extremely foamy and cloudy. Lots of yeast in the bottom of my glass. Looks like an overcarbonated new england IPA with lots of murky turbidity. Smell is very nice - citrus hoppy with fresh tangerine smell. Taste is instantly grassy & spicy hops with hints of a range of tropical fruit and citrus rind. For me, the flavor profile leans to the bitter side with little malt flavor - a little too one-note for me. I’d like more juiciness, more tropical, less carbonation, less grassy and bitter on the palate. I usually love TG beers. This one is not my favorite.

No bottled on date.

Deep hazy orange color, a good two fingers of frothy white head and thin, spotty lace.

Lots of honey on the nose, hints of hop and citrus peel. Similar nose to Pseudo, but sweeter and more pronounced. Much more malt present as well.

Lots of malt flavors hits right away. Sweet citrus peel, hints of grapefruit bitterness. Clearly a pale, but without that strong pale bite. Lager qualities as well, with the honey returning with hints of corn grit as well.

Good body, slightly sticky m. Crisp, slightl dry. Very clean.

Hazy, apricot yellow body; thick, sticky, sculpted head. Powerhouse aroma full of pine, citrus and heady floral notes. The taste starts with a big citrus juiciness; grapefruit; ends with a slowly developing but ultimately intense hop bitterness on the back of the palate. Heavy body; coarse and prickly; starts sweet and juicy and finishes with a stupendous hop dryness.

A beer to seek and love. It's damn good...

Hazy golden color with off-white head. Aroma has dank, grassy and vegetal hop notes. Taste is really hoppy and grassy, dank, a bit bitter on the finish. Medium body and carbonation, feels quite soft and smooth. Really hoppy and easy drinking.

It pours a slightly hazy gold with a nice white head.
The smell is very nice with mango, cannabis, watermelon, wheat, bubblegum.
The taste follows with some resiny hops. Very balanced, not overly bitter. Very well crafted. Quite dank. Some sweetness but not that much. Some candied grapefruit notes. Some white grape skin, some lychee. Wheat. Pine needle
This is really crisp. The mouthfeel is semi-dry with a low carbonation.

Overall it's a very enjoyable pale ale. Very much in style

Pours an unclear light orange, with fluffy head.

The smell just packs all the fruit in there, apricot, peach, citrus mango... delicious!

And the taste... well, damn if this isn't one of the past pale ales I've ever had. Tons of tropical fruit and just a perfect bitterness. This goes down almost too easy!

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

World. Class. Pale . Ale.
