This is about as juicy as it gets for an American Pale ale in the sediment laden cloudy style. The aroma will shatter your reality. My nose is having a Citra wet dream. Forget maltiness and balance, this beer is for one purpose: Transport your senses into Citra heaven and let the horny hops cones take advantage of you in a juicy, nectar-y blissful orgy of mango, pineapple smoothie, and tropical popsicle bliss. I would do shameful things to get more of this (it was given to me courtesy of a generous friend. TG doesn't distribute to CO)

Cloudy, milky orange with lots of fine bubbled carbonation, and a well sustained finger of white, fluffy head.

Smells of oranges and dank leaf. Hints of catnip and mango, as well as canned peaches.

Peaches, oranges and mango. Very light and delicate, and dessert like, with an orange rind bitterness on the finish.

Medium, smooth, silky and fluffy body with moderate to low carbonation.

Got this on in Sacramento, drinking in Redding, Dec 7th, 2018. Superb look, taste and mouth feel.

Lucky enough to find some of these in CT. Can best by 1/18/19.

Can confirm golden flakes float throughout hazy body upon pouring. Two fingers of head dissipated quickly.

Smells, tastes, feels exactly how you'd imagine an APA of this caliber should. Ideal balance of hops and sweetness. Bold and dry enough to convince you it could be a double, but none of the extra boozy feel.

Will never say a beer is perfect for its style, but this is as good of an APA as I've had. Tried to award bonus points for dinosaur theme but couldn't correctly categorize that.

Solid Pale ale, tastes closer to traditional IPA. Flakes of sediment fill the copper color. Resin flavors that end crisp and smooth. A definite Go-To if you enjoy APA

Absolutely great! Flakey sediment suspended in golden copper twinged ale. Crisp delicious taste without the sweetness that is usually found. My first TG beer...I WANT MORE.
