look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Golden and cloudy with some visible carbonation and a finger of off-white head.

Smells really dank and of mango passionfruit and tropical fruit.

The taste is very dank and fresh, with mango, papaya, and tropical fruit notes.

Medium, slightly syrupy body with moderate to low carbonation.

I got this fresh today in Redding and I’m drinking it here on my birthday May 15, 2019.

Can from 09/08/17 into a tulip glass.

L: Murky orange bronze with two fingers of medium density white head with moderate retention and left mixed lacing.

S: Bright and dynamic nose, mostly citrus and passionfruit, with perhaps some subtle guava.

T: Follows the nose well, and finishes with mild bitterness and moderate astringency which linger a bit.

F: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, creamy and tingly on the tongue.

O: A very nice NE-style APA that I'll definitely grab again in the future.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Canned date of 09/08/17

Appearance - Pours opaque and dirty orange in color with an off-white, finger width head. Fair retention results in a thin, broken layer of suds on the surface. Not much for lacing.

Smell - Mostly yeasty aroma. Light citrus notes. Some pineapple. Opens more as it warms to reveal a more tropical aroma.

Taste - Follows the nose. Citrusy upfront with some yeasty character. Faint pineapple zing. some papaya and guava comes though mid-taste. Finish lingers with a juicy blend of citrus and papaya with a faint pineapple zing.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with a moderate, bitey carbonation. Mouthfeel is slick and easy drinking upfront before a dry, slightly chalky finish.

Overall - Reminiscent in many ways of a Moonraker brew, and as the new Head Brewer just came over from Moonraker that makes a whole lotta sense. About on par with some of the better hazy pales. Still, I'd sooner have a more bitey hazy IPA if I'm gonna be spending the premium price for a beer like this.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

16oz can poured into a tulip
A: Light orange, hazy with a 1.5 finger head
S: Fresh orange juice, a bit of tangerine, light herbal notes
T: The palate is fairly earthy/herbal up front with citrus on the midpalate and a wheat/malt-driven finish
M: Medium-bodied, not sure how "chewy" this feels to me, just a crisp, dry ale
O: I wanted to like the liquid as much as I love the label design; overall this is a solid pale ale but beyond the haze not a ton stands out

3.94/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from a can into a standard tulip. No date on the can, which sucks, though assuredly fresh.
Look: Pours hazy deep yellow to light orange, completely murky, finger and a half of thick white head from about half of a can on an aggressive pour; the head dissipates quickly though; lacing is weak.
Smell: Smell is medium to weak, even for an APA; getting close to it, there are both bitter hoppy and fruity notes; the fruity notes feel a bit artificial.
Taste: The taste is kind of strange, doesn't follow the nose; there isn't really that much flavor in to be honest, I was expecting way more; hard to pick out distinct flavors from the hops; something in the taste does remind you of the gummy worms candy; alcohol could be better hidden too, considering low abv.
Feel: Actually pretty nice for an APA, I would classify as full-bodied in style.
Overall: It's decent to where I think I would be willing to spend another $3.50 per can, but not really outstanding when compared to other solid offerings in the class.

Had this at the brewery last Friday when I wasn't feeling well at all, and then again on Sunday when I felt better and was on the golf course with leftpaw27 out of the can. Man I crushed him that day. 6 straight bogeys or worse, almost DiMaggio like.

Anyways, hazy yellow color, relatively thick for a pale ale, 3/4" dense head. Aroma of hops. Seems like Citra and Amarillo on the nose, almost always an enjoyable combo. Taste is a heavy dose of wheat, flavor seems around the neighborhood of Galaxy, that pineapple citrus combo. Where the beer really stands out is in the mouthfeel department, its chewy like a gummy worm despite having a low abv and light body.

I think the Citra Mon was excellent and a pale ale as well, so even as much as I like their ipas, they might be even better with a lighter bodied beer like the pale ale.
