Split a bottle 3 days after it was bottled.

A- Poured a straw yellow that darkened after it settled, semi thick 1 finger head left thick lacing.
S- Citrus. Not too in your face, but citrus notes abound. Easily the best smelling pale ale I've come across.
T- Citrus notes, slightly bitter, with a clean after taste.
M- Nice carbonation, light on the mouth, tickled as it went down.
Overall I have some in my fridge to share with friends who have yet to try this but it's just so good that I might have a few to myself. This is a beer everyone should try. Citra hops are my favorite and this is my favorite citra beer so far.

L- cloudy, opaque, almost like a dull orange juice
S- super citrus, mango
T- citrus hits hard, ends with a touch of bitterness. Great balance
F- low carbonation, super easy to drink, very smooth
O- you should be out trying to acquire this immediately rather than reading my crappy attempt at a review. So solid every time!

Pours a cloudy orange with a finger of white head. Huge aroma of citrus, tropical fruit and resin. Tastes of grapefruit, oranges, mango and evergreen. This is super juicy. Medium light mouth with good carbonation. It's not your typical pale ale, but it's great.

S- Citra hops meld beautifully with grapefruit, orange, slight pine nose.

T- A great combination of everything above. I just put this head-to-head w Zombie Dust and Pseudo remains my favorite APA.

O- Simply the best of its style I've had—The hops are so well rounded, not astringent or bitter (i.e., not cheating by over-hopping it as is common w this style), balanced in every way. Very glad they started doing 4-packs in Madison. Steal at $9 per—only complaint is that TG just needs to make its distribution more regular. Completely lives up to the hype.

PseudoSue definitely lived up to the hype. Possibly my favorite part of this beer is the smell. It is a complex scent of citrus, hops, and a mixture of other spices. The taste mimics the smell very well, with a crisp finish that allows you to taste all the different elements used in brewing this beer. On one my favorite beers to date!

Giving this a new review after trying ti over a year later. Once again i am blown away.
Look-Color is a cloudy tangerine, Pours a finger of white, creamy foam that settles into a respectable layer that retains throughout, and leaves chunks of lacing on the glass.
Smell-As advertised on the bottle, Aroma is full of Ripe mango with hints of citrus.
Taste- Mango and orange peel, slight kick of bitterness to compliment the fruity hops.
Feel-Quite creamy yet very carbonated, with a medium body, which makes for an overall texture that is easy to drink yet satisfying.
Overall- Fruity, sweet, refreshing, and balanced. Truly one of the greatest IPA's i've ever had.
