Heads and shoulders above the common pale ale. Strong flavors without being too alcohol forward. Well worth the search for a normally hard to find beer.

Bottled 16 days ago and had alongside a 3.5-week-old can of PseudoSue.

L -- Pours a pale golden color with the slightest bit of haze and a 2-finger head produced with moderately aerated pour. Some retention and good lacing.
S -- Pineapple, earth, candied grapefruit, papaya, mango, cannabis, and a hint of that rubber hops smell too
T -- Big earthy and grassy flavors upfront, rounded out by cracker malts and hints of tropical fruit and dank pine resin
F -- Nice, well-rounded mouthfeel, especially given the fairly low ABV. Crisp and refreshing. Medium carb and medium mouthfeel. Finishes dry with a restrained bitterness
O -- My main complaint with this and all other citra-centric beers I've had is that the aromas and flavors are heavy on the grassy/earthy characteristics. I'm personally more of a fruit-forward hop guy (galaxy and mosaic topping my list), and I think I subconsciously equate any sort of harsh grassiness with 'old'. Still, this is an absolute joy to drink and I'm glad to have located a bottle during a five hour train layover in Chicago

Pours a hazy orange with a great fluffy white head. Lot of lacing. Big time citrus aroma! Robust grapefruit and mango notes. Taste is similar to the nose with citrus bitterness but it’s incredibly balanced with caramel sweetness. Don’t Get me wrong it’s a hoppy beer but it’s a nice constant bitter taste mixed with the sweetness. Has a nice crisp mouthfeel medium bodied overall. Just a phenomenal beer. Drink and enjoy!

On tap at Three Floyds.

Delightful APA. Serious citrus, earthy nose and taste without being overly juicy or bitter. Medium body and good carbonation. Very drinkable.

Pours foggy hazy amber orange with a dense creamy white foam head. Smells like mango, pineapple, red grapefruit, orange citrus, papaya, berries, guava, passionfruit, toasty bready caramelized malts, with dank floral resinous earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like toasty bready caramelized malts, mango, pineapple, red grapefruit, orange citrus, papaya, berries, guava, passionfruit, with dank floral bitter resinous earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium bodied, creamy and slick with moderate carbonation. Overall a really nice APA.

It pours a light cooper color with a large foamy head that lingers nicely. The smell is of citrus manly grapefruit with somewhat piney amour. The taste is a nice grapefruit to the front with some bitterness to the end. The body is medium with a nice amount of carbonation. Overall a nice offering to have tried.
