3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at bottle share at Syb Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Snifter. Pours gold with haze and a white head. Decent lacing. Pine resin and light citrus on the nose. Some leather and grass as well. Taste is primarily pine and fresh cut grass. Smells a little like a bag of weed. Sort of a musty, hop taste. Bitter finish. medium body. Carbonated. Rather dry.

12 oz chilled pour from tap into a Spiegelau IPA glass at Growler Guys in Portland, Oregon. Golden, clear, great carbonation, perfect fluffy white head. Nose is strong citrus. Medium to full body and creamy. Crisp with a nice bite of carbonation. Very fruity taste. Tropical fruit (pineapple mainly and some mango) and citrus (tangerine). A fresh and drinkable IPA. Great example of the style.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Aromas of citrus and bread with some hoppiness. But nothing overwhelming. Nice ipa.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This poured a hazy lighter orange color, almost like orange juice with a white head. Aroma was of orangey and pineapple type hops, very juicy atoms. Flavor similar, body is perfect, this beer truely deserves to be called freshly squeezed.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Porkopolis in Chandler, AZ. Bold freshly cut oranges highlight the fragrant nose along with hints of lime and a touch of pine needles. The color is deep orange with traces of copper; a brief pure white head tops it off. Like the aroma, the taste is citrus-heavy with oranges and tangerine before a sharp resiny pine note adds some bitterness to the juicy flavors. Medium body. One heck of a delicious IPA that is often readily available.

Bottle. Pours a clear orange with a decent head and aromas of oranges and flowers. Flavor has a lot of citrus and floral notes with a honey sweetness and a bit of ABV burn to it. Very nice.

draft at Dean’s Hops & Vine Cheviot, OH
APPEARANCE - darker copper color, perfectly cleared.
NOSE - super citrus explosion.
FLAVOR - same as nose. But the alure fades over the length of the pint.
NOTES - good beer, but not as great as everyone’s love affair with Citra hop would let you believe.

bottle. Deep golden with one finger head. Maltier base than I was expecting, but obviously the focus is the big pungent citrus hops. Well done stuff.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had high hopes but was let down. The first sip is shockingly bitter. Not as much citrus as the name led me to believe.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: Fairly significant tangerine, grapefruit and mango hops with a healthy dose of sweet cereal. Appearance: Rich copper color with a fat bone colored head that fades into a sticky skin. Flavor: Definitely lots of grapefruit and mango up front, but sweet cereals can’t help themselves; the sweetness settles down a bit towards the finish, which is fruity and slightly bitter. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation, bittersweet finish. Overall: A little torn, really; crisp but pleasant hop expression, but also a little too much malt for 2015. This isn’t far from being a really good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of over-ripe citrus (tangerine, mandarin orange), mellon. Polished copper color with a reddish hue and creamy off white crown. Lots of juicy and ripe citrus in the flavor, balancing maltiness, but it doesn’t overshadow the hops, moderate bitterness overall, tangy persimmon in the finish. Medium body, very smooth and slightly creamy texture. Very good, although there is more Citra in the hop profile and flavor than Mosiac, unfortunately. I still like it.
