Had on tap, poured a clear deep golden color with an incredibly well retained half in white head that left ample lacing. Smell was on the mild side with citrus fruits, pine and malt notes. Tastes of orange, orange peel, peach, mango, pine and a very nice balancing malt presence. Light to medium bodied, lively carbonation, dry and moderately bitter finish, crisp and refreshing.

A wonderful APA. Gold with a slightly hazy color. Nice foamy head. Aroma was pleasantly citrusy. A great balance of bitterness and malt. A great tasting APA!

A solid APA. Poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass. Golden slightly hazy color. Big foamy head with very good retention and thick lacing on the glass. Aroma was a bit light, some mild citrus hops. Tasted pretty good. Hoppiness and flavor more pronounced than in the nose. Good balance between bitterness and some bready and caramel malt. Mouthfeel is about medium richness but nice and crisp with some good bitterness for an APA. I would drink this again.

A very tasty and hoppy pale ale with a head that lasts for minutes and a crisp lager-like finish. It is flavorful enough but also easy to drink so it makes a nice companion to a meal or food pairing.

Poured 12oz can into snifter glass. 5.2% abv

Appearance- Light yellow, semi-clear. Tall, finely bubbled head.

Smell- Orange citrus, Cracker, some lemon.

Taste- Light bready malt. Ample citrus flavors, orange, even more tropical notes of pineapple. Hop bitterness is evident, blending well after the citric flavors into a hoppy finish. Ends in a light peppery finish.

Mouthfeel- Light in body with active carbonation.

Overall- The name suits this beer well, due to profuse hop presence. Lots of flavor in this beer, still quite refreshing. I think this beer would be a year round great choice.
