Might be a little overrated but still a pretty good pale ale. Decent flavor for the abv and def crushable. Glad to see toppling Goliath distributing to MA.

Half a finger of white head. Hazy burnt orange colored beer. Thought it would be clearer.
Smell is slightly underwhelming. But has some juicy notes. Wish there was more tho. Have to smell pretty deep.
Taste is almost the same as the nose. It's a good flavor but I'm wondering where all of it is at. Has a slight tang to it.
Feel is dry.
Overall, this is a good beer but I do want more flavor and wonder where it is. Ahh. Even letting it warm a little to see if more flavor sprouts it still leaves me wanting more.

About 3 months old. Man do the hops drop off on this beer. Tasted like it was 6 months old. Hope to try a fresh can in the future.

High expectations for this well regarded brew. Bought two 16 oz cans, loved the first, reviewing the second.
Pours a slightly cloudy yet semi clear straw golden color with visible carbonation. Good retention on the frothy and pillowy soft white head; nice sticky lacing.
The aroma greets the nose with a mix of tropical flavors-mango, pineapple, papaya- and citrus-orange zest and lemon peel. Other fruit aromas are also hinted at, including apple and pear. This diverse fruit bouquet is set against a crackery malt background.
The broad range of fruit evident in the aroma is reflected in the taste. Juicy flavors of mango, apple, pear and citrus pith, in particular, stand out. However, the dryness of the palate highlights other aspects of the hops and malt. For example, there is a solid crackery and bready malt body that is balanced by a bold peppery, grassy and light pine flavor. Bitterness is on the mild side of moderate.
Medium bodied, moderately carbonated, hoppy and yet with a good smooth malt body. I’m loving the clean, crisp and dry finish, and the subdued resiny linger.
This has got to be one of the best APAs out there. Definitely lives up to the hype!

Canned 1/12/18
Nice gold yellow body, medium haze, lots of fine particles in suspension, fluffy white head that remains throughout in a thin layer. Lots of mango citrus notes. TONS of mango, slight touch of pine, light grapefruit pithiness. Taste follows the nose (so mango) but with a touch of sweetness, almost a creamsicle kind of vibe. Mouthfeel is just right for a pale ale. Bitterness is very low on this brew. Can’t believe this is purely citra hops. Really really impressive pale ale. Tastes similar to lots of CA hazy ipas but has a more balanced, simple flavor profile with a touxh of unique sweetness.
