COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A chaotic blend of Citra hops and Belgian-style yeast give this IPA aromas of passion fruit, a bright hop flavor and a plush finish.

ARH (563) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2014
UPDATED: APR 21, 2014 On tap poured into a shaker. A dry, resin and grapefruit aroma start, and are then complimented by a floral note and some bubblegum character. The beer is a clear amber-caramel color with a sudsy white head that has good retention and leaves a sparse, scattered lace. It’s well balanced between moderate sweetness and bitterness with a good amount of soft, foamy carbonation. The medium-full body is somewhere between oily and creamy in texture with very mellow, well blended flavors. It starts with a juicy malt character then finishes with a dry, chalky, citrus rind finish. The aftertaste is mellow and lingers with tastes of toasted bread and caramel.

color is murky amber orange with a medium off white head. persistent lacing. aroma is grapefruit. Taste is bright and hoppy. Some citrus notes for sure. Hoppy bitterness fades in slowly. A little bit of the bitterness overstays its welcome in the back of the throat. Not bad, but not the best IPA I’ve had.

A darker murky golden color with maybe half a finger white head that dissipates quickly. Smells of light sweet floral, honey, cinnamon, coriander, Belgian yeast, horse blanket, pear, pineapple. The taste has a nice blending of the Belgian with the IPA flavors, a nice light honey sweetness, vanilla, caramel, lemon a subtle under lieing hop bitter, honey biscuit at the end. Dry finish a light carbonation. Reminds me of lemon cake. Good summer beverage. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Love me a good ipa but during summer months, this ipa would be perfect. Nice citrus flavor but still good and hoppy

Draft at Jerry’s. Amber-gold with creamy, frothy beige head, fine wet lacing / Bright nose of citrus rind, weed, pine, brown sugar / Medium body, lean, soft carbonation, moderate sweetness, good balance and bite, with bitter finish / Flavors of orange & grapefruit rind, mango, pine, resin, weed, light caramel / Very nicely balanced, with a lean and clean body which drinks like a cask ale.

Damico (2693) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2014
Pours golden copper with a decent white head. Aroma is superb, bringing softly sweet lemon candy, a beautiful combo of the yeast and the citra hops. Flavor is delicate as well, but delicious tart citrus suggested as the bitter soft hops end on the palate.

(Thanks Chris "Budznsudz") Bottle. A- Caramel, bread, biscuits, sweet, fruits, flowers. A- Dark orange color, cloudy liquid, off white head. T- Caramel, bread, citrus, slightly sweet. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, bready finish. O- Lots of caramel and bread and very little bitterness at all. I’m guessing the year or so of age on here lead to this, but still a very impressive IPA. The citrus was pretty minimal but still there. I love Citra hops as well as Belgian Trappist yeast strains to this was a superb combination for me. I’d love to try some of this fresh.

On tap in Madison. Pours amber orange with a nice even head. Smells grapefruit and taste bubbly with fruity bitterness. Good choice for the pitcher.
