3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 Testís. Glad I got to try it.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Alís 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.

Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear vibrant golden color with a large creamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of citrus and herbal hops. The taste is citrus, earthy, catty and herbal hops with caramel malts. Medium bodied.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
