Can courtesy of yllib.
Pours a fairly light orange-yellow. Very hazy. Thick white head.
Tropical fruit aroma. Actually bringing out bananas and mangos.
Tastes like a quenching mango juice. Not exactly but that’s what is feels like. There’s are tropical and citrus notes. Vinous grape notes.
Mouthfeel is perfect not being thick or watery. Highly carbonated!
Solid. More satisfying and thicc than many “hazy” ipa’s.

3.93/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Has a pleasant dull gold color, cloudy with a sudsy 3 finger head that retains fairly well, leaving spotty lacing. Aroma is in the bright citrus range with a touch of something more tropical sweet in the background. The taste is pretty full for a light-end pale ale. There is tangerine and lemon up front that gets clouded by some earthiness by mid taste. This earthiness leaves a bit of a dirty feel on the tongue in the finish, so I'm not too fond of that. Feel is soft with a light bitterness that lingers in the finish mostly.

This is a full flavored beer that has a complicated taste profile - some good some not as pleasing. This one is maybe 2 months old so maybe that is a factor here? Foam does so much good its tough to downvote but this is really not in an top list for me from them.

Nice little hazy session beer. Great golden color with lovely pillowing head. Sticky too.

I get some candy off the nose - almost citrus skittles along with some tart malt tones. Crispy and fruity.

Taste is a nice and tangy without much bitterness but plenty of dryness in the linger. Notes of pineapple and wheat are unique. Flavors pop for such a tight package.

Very coating mouthfeel, but not so much that it is viscous. Flavors wash in the mouth heavily and the dryness keeps it from being too sweet.

Nice beer - like it and think it is very drinkable.

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

Pours a hazy, yellow-orange with two fingers of foamy, off-white head. Spotty, soapy lacing.

Tea, light citrus and pepper in the nose.

Nice full flavor for an APA with creamy orange citrus and pepper most prominent. Relatively clean finish, with just a kiss of earthy, tea-like bitterness and lingering citrus pith. A little mineral water, too.

Strong carbonation to the feel. Not too hefty, but comparatively pfull bodied for the style.

Tasty, refreshing brew perfect for a summer afternoon.

a neat dry hoppy hazy pale here, some new zealand hop varietals leading the way from what i can tell, an awesome fruity nose on it and a tasty beer overall, but a little starchy and dense for all day drinking, and with just a touch of that green hop bite to finish, not quite as well refined as i was expecting from these guys at this point, and frankly a little bit raw, but its hard to argue with this hop profile, and i enjoyed this pretty well overall, a nice lake breeze blowing through their well shaded front patio didnt hurt either. i get lemongrass, kiwi fruit, french melon, starfruit, lime, and mandarin orange from the can in the nose and taste, some summery white wine notes too, a light grassiness and freshness to the whole thing, it tastes just a little green, but the fruitiness of the hops is awesome, some sativa and soft citrus at the climax, more tropical on the swallow, really pretty compelling stuff, and almost all post fermentation it seems, as the bitterness here is quite low. this is really close to being something special, but just lacks a certain level of refinement. i like the earthy grains, the overall dryness, yet also the fluffy body that they provide. the hop profile is exceptional, notes of nelson but id love to know what they use, and a beer i thought i would want to drink all afternoon but ended up being one and done with. its never been the hoppy stuff that has turned me on the most here, but this is solid all in all.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz. Canned on: 5/2/19
Opened on: 5/14/19 Fresh

A light, fizzy appearance. White gold and straw color. Heavily tinted. A fizzy white foam forms to cap it off, but quickly departs and fades.

The nose has a heavy citrus and melon hop aroma. Wet grasses, wheat and earthy sourness underneath. Big nose.

The hop complexity and depth of flavor is pretty big for APA. The citrus and lush fruity aspects are way beyond. The malt is light but nicely grainy, yet..light in overall effect. The hops are in charge, with almost zero bitterness, although pretty dry. Lots of dry earthy, peppery flavor's and lemon zest kick to make it interesting.

The mouth feel is crispy and dry, then full and smooth, fades out light and airy in the finish.

Not your father's, or older brothers
APA!!

On tap, loads of citrus, fresh cut hay. Bright yellow matches bright yellow citrus flavor. Beer is clean with moderate carbonation, soft and just under medium body
