COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This mouthwateringly delicious IPA gets its flavor from a heavy helping of citra and mosaic hops. Don’t worry, no fruit was harmed in the making of this beer.

Nice malty backbone. Citrusy biscuity flavor. Not bitter. Combination of citra and mosaic hops is awesome. Very balanced. This is a winner.

Transfer from BA review on 7-2-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a nice orange-copper color with a billowy three finger off white head. The head has a moderately level of staying power, fading over time to leave a decent level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell- The aroma is a delicious sweet smell of tropical fruits (tangerine, pineapple and mango) mixed with a lighter, but still quite pronounced, hop aromas of grapefruit, lemon, earth and floral notes. Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter fruit flavor upfront, with it being largely of tangerine but with other tropical and lighter fruits mixed within. A light biscuit flavor was present upfront with a grapefruit hop taste following along . As the flavor advances some of the sweeter fruit fades with a more bitter lemon flavor as well as more grapefruit hop coming to the tongue. Toward the end of the taste hints of an earthy hop as well as a bit of floral hops come to the tongue leaving a nice slightly more crisped and moderately bitter hopped flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body of the brew was on the medium side in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that was slightly on the lower side. A little bit more carbonation would have been nice for stimulating the taste buds in combination with the hop, but overall the mouthfeel was rather appropriate. Overall- A very enjoyable IPA with a crisper finish and a nice hop blend.

Bottle. Clear dark amber pour, with a light caramel colored head. Sweet, grapefruit, caramel, some butter, pine, fruity, and low bitterness. Not what I like in an IPA, too sweet.

Bottle on 9/13/14. Pours a dark copper with a fluffy just off white head that seems to be sticking around. Nose is strong, can smell it from a ways away. Delicious, grapefruit, melon, summer, amazing. Taste is fruity, same as nose, bright, melons, yummy. Soft palate. Finish is dry and hop bitter that lingers.

Medium orange color with a one finger head. Aroma is citrus with some pine. Taste is a nice bitterness, citrusy and a slight sweetness. A good one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I love citra hops so I love this beer. It’s sweet but very refreshing. Could easily drink all summer. Not as piney as other west coast IPAs but still very fruity and enjoyable.

Refreshing and light for an IPA, Great citrus aroma, and a clean finish. Not too hoppy. Had this at the MN state fair and was completely surprised.

amber color; nice, citrus hop aroma; a great citrusy hop flavor; well balanced with a fairly light malt background; easy drinking and not at all assertively hopped

nose: just awesome! intense lemon pith, light herbs like mint and fresh cilantro, mandarins, yeast a la hoegaarden. palate: a blast of lemon and caramel followed by a gorgeous creamy mouthfeel and sweetness that’s perfectly balanced. the bitterness is citrusy and not at all unpleasant unlike some other nw ipas that reek of old wood, glue, and microwaved grapefruit. finish is super aromatic, floral, full of peach pit and orange leaves along with a spicy resiny feel. fresh indeed!

Pours copper with thick head. Smells tinny and citrusy. Taste is very fruity as suggested. Insanely clean finish, low bitter.
