All very well and intoxicating sweet taste, with a slight bitter aftertaste, which remains still for a while, after a sip. The color and smell of the same level !!!

Canned 4/27/16 (at BrewHub Lakeland). Pours a solid gold color clear but for lots of very fine particles in suspension. Thin but fluffy white head leaves a few streaky rings on the glass. Smell: mango, note of melon, lime, grassy, saltine back. Just a tiny pop of fruit loops goodness a citra single hop promises. Taste: limeade, grassy, sugared grapefruit rind, sugared dried mango. Medium bodied with creamy carbonation, thinning out and finishing a bit oily revealing it's sub 6% APA/seshIPA-ness. This is extremely flavorful.

This is a great ipa. But we were up in Napa and had access to fresh Pliny when we had Pseudo Sue and it didn't comapre. Pliny blew it out of the water. I will definately drink it again, just not going out of my way to get more.

16 oz can. Pours in cloudy golden with a large white head. Aroma is citrus, mango, grapefruit, apricot and pine notes. Pretty well carbonated with flavours of citrus, pine, grapefruit, apricot with a clear mango and bitter finish! A really nice well balanced beer.

Mouthfeel : Medium carbonation, medium body. - 4/5
Taste : Very dry and pleasant hop aroma in mouth. Little bit of nice bitter finish. - 8/10
Overall : It's a little bit hard to call a "Pale Ale", but it tastes great so what the hell.

From Labirratorium. In Teky glass. Watching Vinkings 4x10. Amazing in all aspects, but specially on texture, oily, with each sip filling your mouth completely, and very balanced. One of those brews that causes you great sorrow when then glass have finally emptied
