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.

Pours a clear light orange with about a finger of off-white, slowly dissipating head. Brown sugar and lemon in the nose. Taste of caramel and lemongrass, with a lot of zest that fades into a gentle hop bitterness. This is one of the more interesting, complex IPAs Iíve had in a while.

Aroma is very interesting with spices, yeast, hops and a bit of resin. Outstanding appearance with a huge billowy, off-white, semi-permanent head, with lots of lace and a clear honey amber color. Flavorís similar to nose with resin coming out more and lingering somewhat unpleasantly in the finish. Body is on the soft side which enhances that resin finish. Otherwise itís a real good drinking beer.

In a word: "Intense". Thick-hazed amber color on the pour. Huge, peppery hops hit me before I even bring my nose down to the glass. Extra whiffs of grapefruit, pine needles and grasses are there when I do... but I can also detect a hearty malt backbone. The taste is potently flavored with all of those hop characteristics from the aroma. And it has a sticky consistency which allows all of those flavors to linger. Iím not a "hop head" but I certainly enjoyed the fireworks I experienced with this beer. Wow... the pine and pepper aftertaste just wonít quit! ~~~~ Single 12 oz. bottle received as a gift.

Pours a nice cloudy orange with some foam, smells like a fruity fresh hop. At first taste some fruit juice and spice with some bitter at the back end. This is the second 6-pack I bought this week, so saying itís easy drinking is elementary. I think what I like most is the chaotic-ness, the flavor is all over the place.

i could smell a little bit of passionfruit but not as distinct. Like the color especially when poured in a glass. Taste better drinking from a glass. A little too citrusy for me.

BeerBunker (763) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours a murky orange with an off-white head. Aroma is of hops, sugar, banana, and citrus. Smells like a Belgian with a big hop character. There is also a lot of spice. Taste starts off with a lot of spice and banana. Has a nice citrus hop character that isnít bitter, and is very juicy. It is very well balanced. Finish is sugary, with a lot of spice. Goes down way too easy. Really good.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear Amber with white head. Good lacing. Aroma is fruity with citrus and some tropical notes. Also some yeast and spices. Taste is a very smooth and clean bitterness. Moderate bitterness with mild to moderate sweetness. Citrus, pine, caramel, belgian spices. Excellent ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
