Bottle (22oz) Light clear golden. Big white head. Nice citrus aroma. Taste was all kinds of fruit but with a peel bitterness in the end. There seems to be a slightly metallic taste in the end too. Pretty nice overall. Would prefer in 12oz portions.

Poured from a bomber into a tumbler on 08.16.14. A: Citrus, lemon, and funk. A: 2 finger head. See through straw yellow body. T: Citrus, lemon, rye. P: Creamy and watery. O: The rye was not my favorite in this one. It’s just not my thing, so the beer sadly went down the drain.

22 oz Bottle. Tasted on 12/12/14. Bottle courtesy of Espo. The beer has a very strong citrus aroma. The taste was more orange & lemon zest with some malt to balance out the citrus bitterness. Overall it was ok for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber up in Washington. Excessively awesome spiced nose. Beautiful IPA here, the additional spices really treat things up. Hope I find this again.

Nice looking amber with half inch of rocky head. Appearance score reduced by some floaty bits. Aroma is strongly fruity, citrus. Lemon, orange. Smells like those hard candies covered in icing sugar that come in those metal tins. Taste gives a lot more of the malt - a sweet caramel/biscuit. Comes across as really fruity, even juicy. The real fruit addition obviously ramps up the citrus, but it does so at the expense of the...beer part of it. And there’s some unfortunate butterscotch. Refreshing though
