Picked up a 6 pack at the brewpub for only $10. Same price as bombers of Arctic Panzer Wolf. What a kick ass deal.

This is the perfect looking pint. Bright orange with a touch of haze, Enormous frothy, rocky head that completely covers the beer with a centimeter of head for the entire glass and drapes the glass in curtains and chunks of foam. Enormous, aromatic, orangey hops in the nose, with just a bit of cookie dough maltiness in the background. The taste bursts with orange, lemon, passionfruit, grapefruit mango and all sorts of other luscious flavors I can't describe. A very submissive doughy malt profile lays in the back. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a creamy, silky carbonation level and some mouth numbing from the hop bitterness. Fruity hop notes linger in the moderately bitter finish.

This may be tied with Alpha King as my favorite Pale Ale. So hoppy and complex. Stupidly quaffable and approachable, rather than hit you over the head brash. A must try.

Special thanks to the kind gentleman in line at Hill Farmstead who randomly decided to hook us up.

Mostly clear gold with a small, richly creamy head. Big Citra aroma with some sugary malt, pineapple, orange oils, and grapefruit. Pungent fruit all around, mango, leafiness, all floral and zesty with an increasing "dankness". Juicy, fruity, oily hops in the mouth...big citrus, ripe fruit, pine needles, floral hops, and peaches. Crisp, medium bodied, and smooth, softening towards the end. Different from what I expected, but that's not a bad thing. I bet I could drink a lot of this if given the opportunity.

Aroma is super Citra, almost minty. Very juicy and fresh, and dank. Miles of hop, and juuust barely enough malt to hold it up and keep a balance. Lemon, orange, and bright zesty herbs. Flavor is loaded with juicy citrus, light pine, and zesty brisk herbs. Very nice smooth and prickly mouthfeel. Quite swirlable and some kind of juicy explosion in the mouth. Stinkier hop presence as it warms up. A delight for the having...
