Appearance - Pours very clear golden color with thick soapy white head that lasts forever. Sticky lacing all around the glass.

Aroma - Just tons of grapefruit, lemon zest and spices. Hints of yeast with touch of pine.

Taste - Very similar to the aroma but with much more grapefruit and lemon zest/orange peel. There is a touch of spiciness and some nice malt backbone.

Feel - Medium bodied well carbonated but soft, nice bitter dry finish.

Overall - Why can't all Pale Ales get this kind of flavor. such good citrus flavors with a wonderful feel.

A full-bodied pale ale that is big on the hops but is distinctly different than an IPA. Not as heavy as the IIPAs that I normally like to drink, so this is a lighter alternative without giving up big flavor.

Clear gold with three fingers of long-lasting, white head that eventually leave heavy lacing.

Pleasant aroma of grapefruit, lemon, soap, yeast, white pepper.

Same character from the nose: lemon and grapefruit citrus and soap. A quick flash of honey-caramel malt sweetness. Soft pithy bitterness in the aftertaste.

Soft mouthfeel with just the right level of carbonation.

The different pieces in the beer all come together exceptionally well. The kiss of malt in the taste and the great mouthfeel are just about perfect. Lives up the hype, IMO.

I was at the store in the morning and went back for more of a new beer I had had just tried. While standing in line to pay I saw the empty case on the counter.
The nose isn't strong. It's hoppy and sweet.
Head recedes quickly but leaves a thin layer that didn't go away giving way to a fair amount of lacing.
The perfect amount of bitterness. No bite. There are sweet citrus notes hidden in the hops.
The mouth feel it's wonderful. Perfect carbonation for the flavor. Smooth with tiny prickles.
I understand the cult following and am now slave to the trend.
