look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from bottle to a Blvd. Smokestack tulip. Best by 09/16/2011.

A: Hazy and golden with a somewhat thin white head that sticks around nonetheless and leaves nice lacing.

S: Earthy, peaty hops, grapefruit, and hibiscus.

T: Very earthy tones, a strong presence of peat. Slight floral and grapefruit notes with a distinctive, peppery hops finish. A bit of an earthy aftertaste. Complex.

M: Perfect. Creamy without being chunky or overly sweet. A nice hops bite without drying out the palate too much.

O: Excellent pale ale. Not for the feint of heart, a bit hoppier than most, and certainly more earthy than any other I've had. But well crafted, complex, and has a sensational mouthfeel.

12oz can, sample from the brewery.

This is an amazing looking brew, perfect looking clarity within the pale amber hue and the head drops a curtain of lacing down the glass. Smells of find citrus zest, wild flowers, and some breadiness. Smooth with a tight crispness, a good amount of body shows this beer is about balance as the maltiness builds up enough to keep the hops in check. Prick of hop bitterness, slightly toasted bread crust, pear-like fruitiness, kiss of caramel, and a mildly estery alcohol. Way too easy to knock back.

Enjoyed this wonderful brew on tap. Poured into a pint glass; it's a lovely, clear golden color with dense white foam that leaves lacing down the glass.
The aroma is citrus, pineapple and mango and a hint of candied fruit and sweet biscuit.
The taste SO delivers. Lots of tropical fruit and citrus with a hint of pine bitterness at the end.
The mouthfeel is awesome! Smooth and creamy. The alcohol is totally hidden.
Overall, a delicious and very refreshing pale ale. Among my favorites in this style.

12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is bready malts and fruity, resiny hops with a little peppery spice.

The flavor is some sweet malts followed by a citrusey, resiney hop finish. Not a ton of bitterness but the flavors are good. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a very well done and easy drinking APA.

12 ounce bottle, purchased at Gomer's in Kansas City. 101709 is stamped on the label, not sure what it tells us....anyway this tasty offering pours slightly hazed yellowy amber, decent retention on the off white head and respectable froth and strandlet of lace left on the glass. herbal and citric nose...grapefruit infused ale, fruity,fairly tart and bitingly bitter, especially in the finish. Hop heads rejoice and go and get some of this tasty nectar

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Nonic Imperial Pint.

Appearance: Bright yellow with a touch of haze. Nice foamy white head and light lacing lines.

Smell: Very tangy orange and other citrus, with mild pine and grainy caramel malts.

Taste: Mostly orange-like hop oils with just barely sweet grainy caramel malts providing balance. Ends with bitter notes of spice and pine.

Feel: Moderate carbonation, smooth and oily but fairly light body, dry finish.

Drinkability: Lots of hop oils for an APA, making this a fairly unique beer for the style. However, despite the hop oils, it does not stray into IPA territory. Very drinkable with lots of flavor. Pretty impressive overall.

This is hoppy as most IPAs. Not too bitter in the finish. Big flavor.
