12oz bottle into my Three Floyd's glass. Golden amber in color with a thin, sticky white head barely covering the beer.

Aroma has a zesty lemon mixing with some grapefruit citrus and a little bit of a resiny pine. A lighter, bready, sweet malt profile coming through as well. Pretty good and appealing hoppiness for the style, while also not crossing too far into IPA territory.

The taste starts out with some of the bready and zesty citrus qualities to it. Midway, a modest bitter, rind like quality starts to come out and mixes with some malty flavors.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with carbonation being moderate. Overall it was a pretty good beer of the style. It had some very nice hoppy notes to it, but the malt came through with some nice balancing flavors. Very easy drinking and flavorful beer of the style.

Picked this up at Goebel in Wichita...

Pours honey colored with 2+ fingers of pearl colored head. very good head retention & lacing

S: Citrus hops, by the bushel; plus some grassy & floral action

T: Grapefruitty & tangerine hops, a touch of honey malt & dryness up front. Slight pear fruittyness followed lemony & grapefruitty hops as this warms, plus some crackery notes. Finishes crisp, semi-dry with much citrus

MF: Medium-bodied, crisp with restrained carbonation & good balance

Trough the roof sessionability, I sure hope this stays in the rotation. One of the better APAs (not including AIPAS calling themselves APAs) out there IMHO

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.

utterly fantastic beer, simply put one of the best i have had in a very, very long time. served cold and poured into a pint glass, this one was consumed on 10/20/2010.

the pour was near perfect with a hazy amber color with loads of carbonation that left a sticky and rich looking white head that reached a height of three inches and never let me down.

aroma was rich hop notes, huge citrus here, fresh oranges, pineapple, grapefruit and the slightest balance of bready malts. warming brings it all out even further and leaves you utterly stunned by the brilliance here. smooth, creamy and incredibly rich the hops just stick to your teeth, this was ungodly fresh and clean with a smooth, full bodied feel and a super drinkability.

cannot stress this enough one of the best beers i have had in a long time. top notch.

On draft at Wyoming's Rib & Chop House.

The beer is clear and light golden with a thick head. The aroma offers herbal and floral notes, with grass and light pine. Medium bitterness throughout. Grassy and even tart. Some biscuit malt in support. Zesty and tangy. Pretty tasty.

12oz bottle poured into a standard pint glass. The brew appears a hazed golden copper color with a finger of off-white head. The cap fades leaving a wall of lace on the glass and rising bubbls maintain a layering atop.

The aroma is herbal with pine-like hop characteristics that get grassy towards the back. A little cheesy with toasty grain sweetness hinding underneath.

The taste is herbal and piney with a soft grainy sweetness. Grassy with a mild cheese flavoring. Some sulfur comes out a bit in aftertaste. Overall it is a noce compilation of hoppy to grainy characteristics.

Thia is a medium to lighter bodied brew with a light level of carbonation. Overall this is a pretty good brew. However, it had some pretty big shoes to fill considering how much I enjoyed Odell's IPA and red when I previously had them. This brewery really knows what they are doing with hops. While the best by date was still a month or two out, I dont feel confident that this was as fresh as it could have been. I would have this again in the future regardless of being more fresh or not.

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

Pours a clear, golden color. One inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of strong hops, earthy malt, and hop oil. Very strong and good aroma. Fits the style of an American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and thick with a low carbonation level. Tastes of floral hop oil and slight earthy malt. Overall, a great appearance, aroma, and body - though it does lack in complexity.
