Hop aroma is strong- as it should be. Nice color and clarity but not much head. Towards the end of the glass the the hops aroma dies off a bit but flavor held on.

Location: Sampled at Tap NY, 4/27/13
Aroma: The nose is nice and hoppy, with some tropical fruit, grapefruit, and pine/resin
Appearance: Pours a mostly clear copper-orange color with an off-white head
Flavor: The taste is much the same, with a big hoppy flavor and some malt backing
Palate: The body is medium, it has a nice, clean mouthfeel, and a dry carbonation
This one was one of my favorite samplings of the day, and CB was one of the more memorable brewers. A really nice example of an IPA.

Pours a beautiful orange/amber color with a nice thick head. Tight lacing. Nose is heavy citrus and assertively hopped. Nice texture on the tongue, but flavor is a bit thin. This was a bottle on a hotel bar, so it may not have been fresh, would like to try on tap...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer pours a hazy orange color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus and grainy malt. Medium-bodied with a moderately bitter hops character that has citrus and pine notes. Some bready malt in the background. The finish is hoppy with a citrus aftertaste. Decent overall.

Well finally an accurate and brief description of the beer in the bottle. Beer courtesy of UDBeernut, and Thank you Art. Bit murky brownish in the glas.s Pine hops in nose and throughout body. Malt rises halfway thru and is a surprising balance of intense pine and light grapefruit hop and a strangely pleasant butter covered popcorn maltiness. follow thru to finish. Not bad. Certainly helped relax me after a stressful day.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap sample at Custom Brewcrafters in Honeoye Falls, NY and later poured from 12 oz. bottle.
Clear amber copper with large head that soon settles leaving stunning lacing.
Big hop aroma of pine, grapefruit, pineapple and orange.
Big bitter taste that reminds me of arugula, but amplified. Some orange and tropical fruit flavors.
Fairly thick mouthfeel with a pleasantly soft foamy texture.
A big bitter IPA. Nice aroma, but taste not as complex as some other big IPAs.
