Amazing APA right hur! How this little gem received an 87 is mind boggling. Especially when Pseudosue got rated 100. I would drink this over PS any day of the week. Citrus forward, smooth, and delicious. This belongs somewhere in the 93-95 range imo.

Got a sneak peek bottle of this today from a friend. This is very similar to Great Raft's Commotion APA. I would say this is a little bit better. Looks amazing in the glass, and smells of citrus and dank. Taste follows the nose. Overall, the best APA in Louisiana imo.

12 oz bottle into a tulip, 1/25/16, so almost 2 months old.

L. Nice orange with slight yellow tint especially at the bottoms of the glass. 2 finger fluffy head with moderate lacing. Full haze.
S. Nice mix of tropical fruits, mango and orange with a touch of piney hops.
T. Follows the nose almost or perfectly. Lots of tropical fruit with a light bitterness finish.
F. Lighter ish mouth feel with nice carbonation. Very crushable.

Glad I finally tipped this one back, been sitting in my fridge for over a month.

Pale yellow body, slightly hazy, half inch of white head that leaves some sticky residue on the snifter. Aromas of floral hops, grain, earth, bread, perhaps a note of cracked pepper. Nice flavor, well-balanced (and I mean that in a good way). Juicy citrus notes with mild to medium hop bitterness. Nice.

Enjoyed at the Blind Pelican (NOLA) over a plate of raw oysters. Poured into a pint glass.

A: Opaque golden with lots of foamy white head that took its time thinning out. Billowy lacing.

S: Tropical fruits (mangoes, oranges, lemon, grapefruit) and light bready malts.

T: So juicy and tropical. Follows nose with a terrific citrus and malt combo. This really is like drinking a baby Ghost. So crushable.

M: Medium with medium carbonation.

O: The perfect session beer. I bet it'd be great with boiled crawfish. And lots easier to get than Ghost In The Machine.

On tap at The Avenue. From notes. Reviewed New Year's Eve 2016.
3.75/3.5/4/4/3.25
Hazy clear hay.
Smells vegetal and citrusy.
It tastes lovely and sweet. Bit of wheat malts. Not many hops (at all), but a mild mineral bitterness on the end.
It's ok, but doesn't leave much impression.

Pours a pale gold, quite bright but with mild to moderate haze. 2 finger off white head is very long lasting. Loads of sticky lacing left behind.

Citrus and tropical hops. Lemon, papaya, and mango. Cut grass. Light, cracker-like malt. Could use a bit more intensity and complexity.

A mix of the cracker-y malt and some tropical flavors. Mango, papaya, and honeydew melon. Malt becomes almost doughy. Straw, some orange rind, and mild peppery spice.

Nice smooth mouth feel, mild on the tongue. Medium carbonation. Creamy but with just a touch of spice.

Very easy drinking beer. Not huge complexity but well balanced.

12 oz bottle poured into a TEKU glass. Bottled on 2/2/16, so still pretty fresh.
Look: Absolutely gorgeous, super hazy glowing tangerine orange, with a finger of bright white head that fades rather quickly with subtle lacing.
Smell: Deliciously juicy! The citrus hits you right in the nose, juicy sweet oranges and tangerines, a little grapefruit and lemon, some tropical fruit in there too like mango and papaya. Makes my mouth water! Can’t wait to enjoy this one.
Taste: Wow. The taste follows the nose so nicely and gives me exactly what I’m wanting and expecting. The citrus and tropical fruit is so juicy and creamy, orange and mango and some sweet dry white wine characteristics. Very little soft bitterness that doesn’t linger and finishes quickly making me want more and making my mouth water.
Feel: Medium carbonation and light body, incredibly smooth and juicy and soft, finishes quickly and dry and so very drinkable.
Overall: I haven’t tried the original recipe or Ghost to compare, but this new one (Baby Ghost) is a winner. Super juicy and drinkable, a nice citrus forward clean Pale Ale. I absolutely love this beer.
