They just keep coming out with new ones I must try.

Pours into a favorite glass with great lace, very cloudy orange yellow and a medium head. The nose is floral and fruity.
Taste is grapefruit almost exclusively. Grapefruit rind might be a better description.
Nice smooth mouthfeel with the right carbonation. Another winner from TG. Make it again please!

Bottled 3/31/17. Medium gold body, opaque with haze under a bright white head that left plenty of lace sheeting behind. Grapefruit comes across big - like someone ripped the fruit open and the juice sprayed in the air over a bed of flowers in wet, dark soil. Bright and fresh zesty aromas were followed by more grapefruity impressions on the sip. The drink had at once a drying quality, something dank and earthy, and the distinct powdery sweet-tart vibe that I associate with lupulin powder and double dry hopping... The feel is tingly and light, with big bitterness enveloping the tongue, and the aforementioned drying coming through on the finish. A real grand slam, possibly the best APA I've ever had.

Bottle poured into snifter. Golden yellow color with nice head. Grapefruit and hops to nose. Medium body, fruity... well balanced. Easy on palate.

650 mL bottle. Hazy peach juice appearance. Small white head. Smells of tropical fruits that quickly get drowned out by garlic and onion. Tastes of sweet peaches and melon. Garlic bite. A little bit of resin, grapes, and grapefruit in the finish. Sweet pale malt and peachy juiciness in the finish. Medium body. Another solid pale ale from TG.

22oz bottle poured into a teku glass

A- pours a hazy golden orange color with a one-finger foamy white head that reduces to a thin film floating on top

S- citrus forward aroma with a emphasis on tangerine & grapefruit. Light floral undertones, along with sweet honey & freshly cut grass

T- juicy citrus jumps out immediately with highlights of freshly squeezed tangerine, grapefruit zest, orange pith and a hint of lemon. Mid-palate continues the juicy onslaught, with a bit of tartness kicking in. As it nears the finish, soft floral notes pop up, which leads to an earthy and herbal finish with lingers of tangerine and grapefruit

M- medium body with medium carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that turns slightly creamy into the finish

O- a great mix of citrus and floral hops that remains juicy and highly drinkable, an awesome pale ale

Poured from 22-ounce bottle into a Spiegelau beer tulip. Pulpy orangeish-yellow in color, with a thick white head and lots of nice lacing. Big aromas and flavors of grapefruit, orange, tropical fruit, and pine. Mouthfeel is medium, with sticky grapefruit-pith bitterness on the finish. A little malt sweetness begins to come through on the nose and palate as the beer warms toward cellar temperature, but the hoppy bitterness remains front and center. Here's hoping that this one makes its way into TG's regular rotation. It is indeed worthy.

Pour is a semi opaque, bright orange hue. Big frothy head, nice lacing. Piney forward aroma, hints of mango, papaya and pinneapple in the background. Light cracker like malt. Taste has the same resinous pine as the aroma, subtle pinneapple. Grassy finish. Mouthfeel is soft, pillowy. Solid APA, nice showcase of Citra.
