Yeah, this beer is worth the hype! This is the best Pale Ale I have ever had, so far...

Can you give a Pale Ale a 5 or 100 or whatever the scoring is? Possibly, but I want to reserve that until I try Heady Topper and Pliny. Just in case they truly are better beers. I would say at this point this is the best Pale Ale/IPA I have ever had.

Appearance: Straw yellow, hazy but with some redness going on. Its a very attractive beer.

Smell: Tropical fruits, mango, peach, some citrus aromas in there, maybe a hint of pineapple as well.

Taste: This is where they get ya. It is the most balanced IPA/Pale Ale I have ever had. Its very drinkable. So, drinkable in fact, that you could get into bad trouble with this one. It has the right amount of hop/malt ratio. You do get some bitterness, but not a palate wrecking hop
blast. Mango's, papaya, pineapple, lots of fruitiness in this beer, but there is a sharpness going on as well, that makes it explode in your mouth. This is a very nicely made beer.

Overall: Its well worth the hype, and I do appreciate this trade. I am fortunate to have 2 six packs of this and I plan on sharing these with some good friends, but thanks to Pluchar for this one! Cheers brother!
