Fantastic aroma of citrus and a hint of malts, similar taste but a bit more mild, top notch ipa

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 fl. oz. bottle from Club de Cervezas. Pours a clear, sparkling orange color with a medium sized white frothy head that diminishes slowly and leaves a good creamy film. Intense and powerful hoppy aroma, a real hop perfume. Notes of grapefruit, ice-cream bean, lemongrass, cedar, green apples, rose apple, pine cones and even basil. Really great, purely hoppy. Taste is very bitter, intense and bold without being a hop-juice. Herbal bitterness leaves some space for soft to mild fruit tartness to be perceivable. An all hop brew, with barely any malty hints. I can say, in a hop-head mood, I love it and see little ground to improve it, but it’s not the pinnacle of complexity. Medium body and carbonation. Very very drinkable and admirably brewed. I would have this anytime I need a hop fix. Aftertaste is massively hoppy. More bitter and slightly less tart than the Grapefruit Sculpin. My new IPA type-specimen.

On tap at Cole’s in Buffalo. Pours light and clear with almost no head at all. Aroma is strong and delicious with citrus and very hoppy. Taste has a very mild bitter to it with the big citrus notes coming through.

Had as part of a 4 beer flight at rattle and hum in NYC. First of the flight, very well balanced hoppiness with a citrus smell and after taste. Not overwhelmingly bitter

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 The citrusy aroma is really great. The taste is very, very good - first citrusy/fruity hops and then a decent bit of pine resin on the finish with almost no malt present. It’s medium bodied - not quite light, but definitely not heavy. If you like IPAs, this one is a must try if you see it.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours orange with tall white head. All sorts of citrus and melon wafting from the glass. Not very malty which is the way I like ’em. Mango, peaches, pineapple, absolutely delicious, almost perfection in a glass for this IPA lover. Rather expensive (like Ruination) but you bet I’ll be buying it now that it’s available in Texas. If you like the Southern California style of citrusy IPA, you will LOVE this one.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light red-orange with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma is very hoppy; grassy, pine, citrus, pineapple, some grapefruit, and a bit of caramel. Taste is pine, grapefruit, bittersweet lemon and orange peel, some bready malt flavor and a bitter hops finish. Clean mouth feel; not the smoothest ever but still quite decent.

Bottle. Translucent golden pour. Half inch head. Aroma of pine and sweet malts. Tastes sweet up front with a bitter hop finish. Not as hoppy as I expected. Soft mouthfeel.
