On tap at the Fermenteria. Pours a vibrant golden yellow color with an inch plus if white fluffy head. Lots of lacing. Very juicy aroma. Orange, tangerine, pineapple, and pear. The taste is very fruity as well. Pear and pineapple right off the bat followed by the citrus hops. Maybe a hint of the wheat at the finish along with more juicy pear. Light mouthfeel but with a lot of carbonation. Overall, fantastic Pale Ale for sure.

From 09/13/15 notes. Had an 8oz glass of this followed by a 16 oz glass at the Fermentaria, followed by a 32 oz. growler 6 hours later.

Pours a very clear bright yellow color with one inch of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident. Citrus hop, oranges, floral notes, resin, oat, bread, grass and straw, fruity malts and tropical notes. Tastes has more oranges and mellon. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall pretty good taste especially; it got better as I drank it. Not super hoppy but lots of fruit and tasty, and super easy to drink. A beer I could definitely drink a lot of and all the time.

Had on tap at Monk's Cafe in Philly. The only non-Belgian beer I got at this awesome Belgian bar.

Pours a bright cloudy yellow.

The smell of this brew is fantastic. One of the better smelling APAs I've ever had. Floral hops, orange, clementine, and lemon zest. This really smells beautiful.

Certainly hoppy but not overdone. It doesn't overstay its welcome or linger. The clementine flavor is a great addition. This beer is a citrus hop bomb but still easy drinking. Glad I got to try this one.

One of my favorites from them, I just wish they made it more often. So bright and vibrant.
