4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Pours a fairly clear golden with a decent sized off-white head that is mostly lasting, leaving thin, sticky lacing. Fresh hop aroma is wonderful - sweet peach and apricot flesh, moderate pine resin, slightly citric orange blossoms. High spruce and citrus fruit bitterness - fairly solid in pungency from beginning to end - allowing just a few peeks of sweet malts, leather and mild black pepper. Finish has some notes of grapefruit rind and more black pepper. Solid and very tasty.

Mildly hazy orange with a solid 2 cm of white head. Aroma is perfumey citrus hops, and taste is the same and sweet, with a bit of bitter pith and some tropical fruit into the finish. $3/12oz

I can’t believe I’ve waited this long to rate it. Pours a somewhat clear orange with a white lacing. Pungent orange, tangerine and other citrus notes. Initially bitter but finishes sweet. Citrus lingers on the palate. One of the best uses of Citra I’ve experienced

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2013 This and DayTime really suck. Another pine bomb affair, and cat pee. Do not like these kinds of IPAs at all.

Pale yellow, boring appearance. Big floral hop nose. HUUUUUUGE hop flavor, piney and spicy. Amazing brew.

Devine intervention. Reminds me of the hop profile from daytime. Lots for floral notes on the nose. Hop bomb in the middle with subtle malt backbone. Love it

Amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, floral hops, citrus, resin, and light caramel. Taste of citrus, pine, resin, grapefruit, light tropical fruits, toasted malts, toffee, and a bitter, hop finish.

Earthy, spicy, and citrus hop aroma. Pours a golden straw color with a low retaining white head. Hop flavor starts small but then explodes: spicy, herbal, musty, piney, and citrus.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 12/19/2012. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a nice 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, orange zest, orange rind, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, floral, grass, light pine, and earthy hops. Fantastic aromas with great hop complexity, balance, and strength. Taste of big grapefruit, orange zest, orange rind, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, pine, floral, honey, grass, and herbal hop earthiness. Good amount of piney citrus bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus zests, citrus rind, pineapple, floral, pine, grass, honey, and herbal hop earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic hop complexity, with a nice malt balance supporting the big hops; and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy and very smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic IPA. Great hop complexity with nice malt balance; and very smooth to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering as expected.
