L (4.25) - Kinda that hazy orange color you'd expect of an IPA. But it works for this one.
S (4.25) - Smells citrusy, and a little general "hop" to it.
T (4.5) - Tastes immediately very citrusy. I'm not a huge fan of citra hops always, but they did a good job here. About the right amount of hop punch for an APA.
F (4.5) - Easy drinking pale ale. Fairly smooth finish though.
O (4.5) - I really like this one overall. It's not a big bad*** IPA, but a well done pale. I think a very good example of one, maybe pushing the boundary a bit. A worth competitor to Sue.

L: Bright orange and cloudy, good head retention.
S: Hops jump out of the glass. Mango, orange juice.
T: Mango, orange juice, tiny bit of cracker-y malt.
F: Light, medium carb, finishes clean.
O: Juicy and extremely drinkable. I actually would put this slightly above recent batches of PseudoSue, and Zombie Dust.

Draft at El Bait Shop. Murky orange with spotty lace.
Smells flat out amazing. Bursting with citrusy dank hops and sandalwood.
Feels watery and tastes like butterscotch unfortunately.
Pretty unbalanced, not really something i'd have more of.
If the taste matched the amazing aroma, it would be gold.
Hope to try this again at the brewery, it could have been a dirty line.

Really good pale ale. Super juicy and honestly outside of pseudo sue, this is my favorite pale ale. This is my first 515 beer and it just makes me excited to what this brewery can do.

poured a 32oz growler into a snifter.

A - Very dirty and hazy tan/yellow color that looks like it could be pure OJ. Off white 2 finger foamy head that fades very slowly and leaves a thin cap for the session. Terrific webbed lacing splattered around the glass.

S - Oh my! The aroma is so juicy! The hops used in this have high citrus aroma like a glass of orange and grapefruit juice, with hints of mango and guava. There is also a bitterness to it, but damn it is straight juice!

F - Like citrus and tropical hoped super juicy APAs? This is up there with some of the best! Makes me think if Zombie dust and grapefruit sculpin had a love child. I can't even describe all the citrus and tropical flavors along with the medium bitterness.

M - Superb feel and perfect carbonation with a juicy, yet dry finish.

O - What else do I say? This beer is amazing. Holy shit IOWA!
