Swung by the brewery earlier today in their weekly window to get growler fills and was pumped to see this on tap since last week there were problems with the tap and couldn't get a growler fill. Poured a significant chunk of my growler into my 22oz TB snifter (markintihar all day!)

a - brew poured an opaque mahogany orange with a generous foamy head that coated the glass in streaky lacing as it dissolved.

s - the highlight of this beer. Citra all day. Wonderful grapefruit citric punch with a hint of resiny pine but concentrated on super ripe fruit.

t/m - taste to follow the nose. At first i find myself calling this a dialed back IPA but then remembered this is a pale, but it could pass for an IPA any day. Hell of a pale. Great fruity punch, but sessionable and easy to put down a growler full. Solid earthy malt backbone.

o - super impressive offering from the locals and my favorite i have tried. Very much worth checking out (and drinking all night) if you get the chance. Hope to see this one around town more regularly. Really stellar pale ale. super sessionable.

A--nice orange bright color, good sized head
S--incredible smell, citra hop forward, grapefruit but not overly piney
T--not as hoppy as the smell would indicate. Grapefruit
M--medium bodied, low carbonation
O--Amazing beer. Closest thing to Zombie Dust I've had. Great beer from a relatively new brewery that makes me excited to try more beers

Look is a dull hazy orange/yellow. Little to no head.

Aroma is pure citra hops. Really good.

Taste is hoppy citra without much body to back it up. Very thin.

Nice exploration of the citra hop but I'm not sure if the underlying beer hold ups.

Had on draft at Barrage Brewing company on 12.24.15

Appearance-Bright orange head, small off white head.
Smell- love the smell, TONS of Citra, not too piney. Just the way I like it. Smells amazing.
Taste- like a more subdued version of the nose, a very crisp and clean citra, maybe grapefruit and orange peel? Definitely tastes like an APA
Mouth fell -medium not much carbonation
Overall- Loved this beer, as mentioned by one prior reviewer this is a Zombie dust clone. My favorite beer from this brewer. They need to bottle this bad boy. Thankfully this place is 5 mins from my house.
