Bottle. Pours cloudy amber with a great beigish head leaving lace. Aroma is hop forward citric piny and fruity as is the flavor, well bitter indeed and it seems to stay forever.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hop bomb. Poured slightly chilled with gigantic, foamy, frothy, cream-colored head that lasts all the way down and lots of clingy lace. Color is a nice, clear amber with loads of bubble trails. Aroma is a blend of hop, barnyard, yeast, malt. Flavor is totally dominated by hop; very bitter with a little malt coming at the end. Carbonation is ok, but body is confused by the intense bitter. Thank goodness for that smidgen of malt. Finish is like flavor, super long, and off flavors courtesy of hop. Also a little boozy.

2.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Excellent hoppy smell, smooth malty taste behind the bitterness. Not too bitter while drinking, but stays around a little bit too long afterwards. Unbearable after 4 ounces.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Created a vigorous sizing of fluffy foam head while the liquid was a hazy glowing golden honey color. The aroma is bold with a heavy dosage of floral green hops that ooze citrus while a grassy aroma lurks in the background. The flavor is initially bitter with the taste of hops that has an organic raw honey and spicy profile to it but there is also a sweet taste of malts that actually convinced me this beer was actually interesting. Sort of reminds me of a west coast pale ale recipe I brewed at home once.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours amber with a white head. Very nice hop aroma. Citrus, floral, some pine but more fruity. Malt is noticeable but not overdone. Pretty well balanced and refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle, purchased at BeerCraft. Pours a generally clear, orange-amber color; off-white head with modest retention and solid lacing. Earthy, floral, and orange-y hop character in the nose; slightly vegetal; some sugary sweetness. Medium-full body; fine-bubbled carbonation; grassy, citrusy, slightly vegetal IPA with a fair bit of core sweetness; alcohol levels keep things lean, but still not a great IPA. Lasting orange bitterness, alcohol, quiet sweetness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Windy City shared with Pat, Sean, Tony and Dan. Pours an amber body with nice thick off white head. Aroma is super caramel, sweet malty bread and light citrus hop. Mouthfeel is medium, super sweet but still holding somewhat of a hop profile - just a bit on the sweet side now. I would love to try this offering fresh and/or on draft.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Solid citrus aroma and palate, decent malt backbone supporting the alcohol, overall nicely made, but a little light on the palate
