3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour from a 32oz pizza boy growler. Pours a hazy golden color. Light foamy head. Smell is of tropical fruits, mango, pineapple, some peach. Light undertones of grass and lemon. Taste follows the nose in almost direct fashion. Nice grain bill on this that neither makes the beer but only adds. Pleasantly bitter. Light bodied I could drink this all day.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2013 Reviewed from notes.
Pours golden yellow with a nice one finger tall white head leaving sticky white lace down the glass. The citra hops are strong along with hints of tropical fruit zest and some light caramel malt backing. The taste is just like the nose, just a little more balanced. Sweet, hoppy feel from start to finish. Overall the best of the early Hop Test’s. Glad I got to try it.

On tap at Als. Pale gold pour with white head. Aroma of typical citra, lots of lemon, a tad herbal, slightly reminiscent of cat urine. Taste is bitter, nice citra hop flavor, not overly bitter, finishes rather dry. Tasty IPA.

On tap at Al’s of Hampden. Terrific fresh Citra aroma, flowery, fruity, pungent and delightful. Medium golden clear with light haze, topped with creamy-foamy white lacing head. Medium body and carbonation. Starts with medium carbonic acidity, mainly dry, with some sweet undertones. Big juicy hop flavor throughout with medium bitter finish. Big flavorful bitter after. Nice IPA.

Very nice IPA. Aroma is tropical fruit and citrus with some light grass and resin. Taste is no bitterness at all and lightly fruity. A bit watery but really chuggable and delicate. Nice.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear orangey yellow with a frothy white head that leaves a slight lacing. Big tangerine, mango, melon, aroma. Really easy drinking and clean. Slight bitterness but extremely soft. Medium mouthfeel and medium light carb. Great stuff.
