I made this back in December and it turned out super good, wound up with around 50+ bottles. My fiancé and I are going to brew all of our own beer for our wedding in October and this recipe is for sure going to be one of them. Nice strong pale ale with hints of the honey and citrus from the hops, a good go to beer when I can't decide which type of beer to have. We both love this beer.

Yup this one is good. Nice pineapple flavour. I think Galaxy instead of Citra would work too.

Golden amber colour with a fair amount of citrus/APA aroma. Taste begins with a love-bite of bitterness. The edges of this bite smooth out quickly into a pleasant sweetness with citrus and malt character. This sweetness is followed up by a slight alcohol warming which enhances the overall flavour. After your umpteenth gulp is down the chute you are left eager to have another.

This beer is super-good. Very dominant honey flavour with hints of orange blossom tea. It would make a great summer lawnmower brew, if it weren't for the 8% ABV. I'm putting this one on my list of beers to brew in the near future.

I am very happy with this brew. A bit high on the ABV. The fruitiness from the Citra combined with the honey malt and honey makes this a very pleasant brew. Try it out and let me know how it goes.
