22oz bomber pours with an opaque deep gold body that has copper hues and supports a white head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet tangelo, clementine and tart pithy grapefruit aromatics. Wow, inviting smell. The taste is bold with tangelo and clementine citrus notes that are heavy with bitter hops and also smooth with modest malt sweetened tangelo hop flavor. It ends refreshing and fairly dry. This is solid hoppy brew with plenty of rich citrusy hoppiness.

this was originally up there (though below) Pliny and Pliny as my favorite of the IIPA fest. Itís citrus rind sweet and bitter goodness stood up to the biggest and best...we even went back for seconds. not all hops, but not exactly balanced, itís bright and fragrant aroma and taste were great. i;d buy bottles if i ever saw em. lower ibus (75) than most or all at the fest, but more flavor. Not quite as much of a WOW beer bottled, but pretty damn nice."

Draft at Mudville 9 NYC. Pours a light tan color. Crisp easy drinking not overly hoppy beer. Goes down easy for a 2x iPa

Huge huge thanks to a generous patron at CK! Pretty, vibrant peach pour, hazy, with a solid fluffy white head. Nose and flavor are glorious, with apricot, pineapple, dank lemongrass and chinotto peel resonating throughout the palate. Not an ounce of sweetness or malt. Clean, bitter, and medium to high effervescence. Beautifully done.

range brown opaque pour with small but dense white foam. Aroma is a blast of tropical fruits, lots of pinneaples, mango and oranges. Also some of the distinctive cat pee and wet grass from citra hops. Taste is also very fruity, some resin with definite bitterness without being over the top. Could have a little more carbonation. The perfect example of the fruity IIPA.

Had on tap at the brewery back in March during release. Great floral & citrus aroma. Wonderful DIPA. Wish I could have it more often.

Taster at Beer Temple, Chicago. Light golden. Aroma is Citra hops, muted fruits. Taste is a little faded - fruit especially, plenty of resinous finish though. Good, but would live to drink this on draft.

Draft at the brewery this weekend, multiple pours! Aroma is sticky grapefruit, passionfruit, mango, light pineapple, dank herbs, twiggy, resin, citrus. Last yearís bottle aroma was a lot less pungent, and had more stone fruit like peach, but the draft version is still pretty fruity. The beer pours a cloudy deep golden color with orange highlights and moderate white head. The retention is medium and the lacing eventually gets washed away with each sip. Taste is extremely tropical with lots of pineapple, guava, mango and orange peel. Towards the back of the tongue more citrus arrives with moderate earthy bitterness, citrus peels, resiny. Body is medium-light with medium-high carbonation and a pretty dry finish. Moderate alcohol warmth, low alcohol bite and low astringency. After taste is slightly vegetal with some leaves and twigs; however each sip brings back so much citrus itís more of an afterthought. The bottle version last year didnít have that on the palate and was juicier, creamier with a lot more tropical fruit on the after taste. Overall the 2014 version was still pretty darn delicious with light creamy body, medium dank hop note and lots of tropical fruit and citrus. I drank 2 pints easily and contemplated a third. Now Iím craving that third. Dammit.

22oz bottle. What I love most about this beer is how well balanced it is. So many fruit and floral arroma I can?t keep tabs. Tastes of citrus, pineapple,grapefruit, and mango. Finishes like a fruit smoothie with hops. Great beer!
