FROTHINGSLOSH (5602) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky orange-toffee color with a small creamy orange-white head that faded quickly but left good lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy citrus, catbox, pine and spruce. The flavor was tart, tangy and bitter with pine, citrus, resin and sour caramel. Long tangy and bitter hoppy finish. Moderately full bodied. Ok.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Had on-tap at One-Eyed Betty’s in Ferndale, Michigan as part of a paddle. Appearance: Golden yellow... typical of an IPA. Awesome lacing from just about top to bottom. There may’ve been a slight haze, but it was dark in the place, so I didn’t really notice. Smell: Citra. There’s that slightly earthy, mega-citrus sort of aroma from the citra. It doesn’t smell quite as good as Zombie Dust or even Odd-Side’s Citra Pale Ale, but it still has a super pleasant burst of those fresh citrus aromas. Taste: Basically like the smell, but actually a little restrained, I think. There’s quite a lot of citra, but it doesn’t really "burst" like I felt Citra Pale Ale or Zombie Dust does. Strangest of all, I find it odd that this is considered an IPA, but I thought it was less bitter than the other two I mentioned, which are described as being pale ales. Citra is clearly the show-case, there’s no doubt about that. This is still an excellent beer, but it’s not quite as awesome as I felt CPA or Zombie Dust are... Artic (I don’t know how to pronounce the rest...) just doesn’t seem to have as much depth. Regardless, this is a beer I’d have again if I could.

teddybeer (2810) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle. Amber colour with a white head, medium duration and lacing. Aroma is strong hoppy, fresh, fruity, resins and pine are highly present. Flavor is strong bittery, malty, resins hops are highly present, notes of orange peel, grapefruit and citrus as well. The final has a decent bitterness with good duration.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Bottle:   Orangish straw, faint haze, small sudsy white head, little lacing.   Musty nose, slightly dank, faint citrus aspects.   As it warms it gets a little sweaty.   Soft sweet citrus aspects up front, pale mustiness, a touch sweaty.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Dank sweaty finish.   While a touch sweeter than the FF variety, the sweat aspect detracts a bit.   Not bright at all, but thankfully not overly bitter either.   Thanks Kevin!

DoublEE (783) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Taste is of bitter grapefruit, juicy blood orange, and bready malt. Doesn’t deviate too far from what our standard tastes like, but I definitely think the addition of citra hops makes the beer tasty more earthy. Bit of fruity sweetness to the finish.

Draft. From notes. Grassy with citrus and pine resin. Good caramel malt backbone. Very enjoyable.

On tap at Frasers. Strong notes of hopes and citrus on the nose. Pretty weak palate though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

zsb19 (168) - Cincinnati, Kentucky, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Pours clear amber with medium off-white head. Aroma is juicy citrus and floral hops. Taste is dank resinous hops upfront with some bitter citrus on the follow through. Aftertaste is lingering bitter grapefruit that fades into some sweet malty notes. Palate is thin and somewhat sticky. Overall nice balance in this easy drinking IPA.

Draft at Capone’s. Pours turbid deep gold with white clingy head. Nose is resiny hops, caramel malt, some peppery and grapefruit notes. Tastes piney and tangeriney,with pineapple, grapefruit, smooth, with spare caramel malt and a good balance.
