A true amalgamation of unicorn tears and awesomesauce. We start with 2-row, Vienna, and Rye malts to create a bready malt flavor and dry finish to accentuate the hop flavor. We then add Chinook, Columbus, Centennial, Amarillo, and of course, a massive load of Citra hops at finishing, leaving you with enticing aromas of lychee, gooseberry, and passionfruit delivered only by the unique Citra hop. Put this full-frontal assault of deliciousness all up in your grill immediately!

On tap @ Yardbird, Vegas. Slightly hazy pale yellow. Pleasant crisp lemon and white grapefruit profile, hints of rye spiciness, but mostly eclipsed by the fresh hops. Long bitter finish. Very nice.

CraftBeerNick (1413) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2015
Tap at Yard House, Las Vegas, 10th November 15. This is a fairly basic IPA, floral and hoppy, good citrus and easy to drink. Not bad

Dogbrick (10014) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2015
Can at the Linq Hotel in Vegas. Pours a hazy yellow-gold color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, mildly spicy rye and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a rye and hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

unclemike (2685) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - SEP 8, 2015
Clouded orange amber with slight head. Quite disappointed in this, not as hoppy, sharp as I expected, really fairly flabby. Sweetish malty base to the beer with a tea like slightly boiled, over extracted hop almost to oilyness. Vanilla, orange in the background flavour

Can at the Centurion Lounge at LAS. Pours a cloudy orange color with a frothy white head. Light, citrus aroma with a hoppy presence. Dry, hoppy bite with a citrusy finish. Refreshing brew. Pretty good for a Vegas beer.
