Poured from can dated May 16, 2016 on June 4, 2016 into a Spaten Oktoberfestbier 0.5L glass. Clear golden color with 2 finger head, mild lacing. Mild, hoppy nose that is more floral than piney, slight citrus. Balance of flavor is incredible. The malt blends perfectly with the various hop characteristics producing a crushable yet full flavor APA. Bitterness is contained, while mild fruity hop notes lead. Medium-light body and average carbonation.

I've had this a few times, it's not my cup of tea I guess. A lot of people rate this really high, but I'd rather have a fort point ale from Trillium.

This is such a good pale ale and I wish I didn't have to go to Wisconsin to pick it up every time, but it's worth it. I had this out of a 16oz can poured into a tulip and this is wowzers good right up there/equal with Zombie Dust. This is a well balanced citrus APA that will splash your tastebuds. Good Work TGB!!!

Poured from a 16 oz can into a tulip glass. Appearance is golden, light brown in color with two finger thick head. Smell is pine and tropical fruit (really nice). Taste follows the nose with a nice orange flavor coming through and incredible balance. Mouthfeel is somewhat viscous with good body and relatively low bitterness. It kind of blends the pale ale and ipa styles, and the execution is almost perfect. Excellent beer.

22oz bottle, bottled less than 48 hours before opening. Poured into FFF pint glass.

This may knock Zombie Dust out of the top 5 beers I've had, the 16oz cans brewed in Lakeland, FL are good but this bomber from Decorah blows the cans out of the water. HUGE citrus notes on the nose, complimented by the most delicious fruity flavor. Beautiful orange color with strong lacing that sticks to every part of the glass. I'd even take this over King Sue, just wow. The perfect beer for me. Only complaint is how hard it is to get compared to the 16oz cans here.
