Appear : A little bit hazy orange-golden color with white foamy head. - 4/5
Aroma : Big nose of citrus from Citra hop. - 9/10
Mouthfeel : Medium-high carbonation, medium body. - 4/5
Taste : Like eating citrus, juicy flavor and citrus, piney hop flavors. Very dry. - 9/10
Overall : Great pale ale with citrus character. Prefer Pseudosue to this, but this is amazing too. 17/20

Great beer, my first craft beer I ever had before I knew even what I was drinking. Now that I have other pale ales to compare it too it is very good, probably the second best pale ale I've ever had after double dry hopped pale ale by Trillium. Smells great and tastes better.

I live in MA and had this mailed to me. So $42 for a six pack.... I love a good pale ale. This was fantastic to me. Nothing crazy going on, just a really nice solid beer. Great nose to it. If this was closer to me, it would be my "go-to"

Expected more. Didn't blow me off my feet like a top 50 beer should. Very generic taste and mouth feel. Other Half superior IPAs to this. Probably getting by on its reputation at this point

Overall good beer. Not worth the hype in my opinion. Personally I think Alpha King is better...and easier to find. Super cool, bottle decal

It's a pale ale. There's not much more that can be said beyond that. Totally drinkable, but nothing special, if I'm honest. One might be better served by a proper IPA like Stone's or, if you're in the Midwest, a Two-Hearted.
