Hazy amber pour with active carbonation which adds to a large creamy head. Incredible lacing. Big citrus hop aroma. Upfront the brew is sweet with the major hop presence coming through in the finish. Nice big flavor

Clear golden color with a medium white head. Strong pine, resinous aroma with some nettle notes. Hoppy flavor with just enough malt backbone to not keep it unidemnsional. Medium palate. Refreshing yet very tasty and flavorful. One of the more solid IPAs I have had in a long time.

Drinking this from a can so apologies for the lack of appearance notes. Aroma is juicy hoppiness. Mango, peach, canned pineapple. Lots of hops blended well with a lot of candy malt. Not overwhelming in the crystal department, but clearly using malt sweetness to enhance the fruit. Canned peaches are the dominant flavor. Very light bitterness for an IPA. Quite delicious.

Clear amber with white head and moderate lace. Floral notes with sweet malt and caramel aromas and taste. Well-balanced brew with hoppiness that leads to happiness! Medium bodies with good carbonation. Delicious and pure excellence as expected from CCB.

12 ounce can split between two taster glasses. Abundantly fruity and sweet aroma. Nectarines, oranges, mangos, ripe pineapple. The sweet and ripe fruits shine through in the taste too. There's some dank hop action in there, juicy juicy hops. Light side of medium bodied, carbonation seemed about right too. The mouthfeel was heavy enough to carry all those rich citrus flavors. Overall a big, satisfying ipa. Definitely worth picking up when you see it.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a beautiful pillowy head. Aroma is MASSIVE! Citrus, grapefruit, pine, orange, caramel, sugary sweetness, herbal nuttiness, tobacco? Probably! I smell 7up and a mimosa wow! Taste is slightly different, but tremendous. Big bitter pine through and through. Complimented by grapefruit, some orange and citrus. Balance slightly by the malt, there is a bit of caramel. Finish is dry. Awesome beer. Nice medium mouth feel, no hint of alcohol.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours slightly hazy amber with big soapy head. Nose is hops, biscuit, tobacco, lemon, citrus. Taste is juicy orange, citrus, balanced hop and malt, pretty sweet, some bitter herbal/tobacco notes on the finish. Has a creamy/juicy mouthfeel quality, a bit unusual for an IPA. Interesting take on an IPA, definitely differentiates itself from West/East coast styles.

Fruktansvärt maltig arom, inte direkt vad jag hade väntat mig av en IPA. Ingen humlearom och en fruktansvärd beska.
