UPDATED: DEC 5, 2014 Had on cask at the brewery. Good flavors of the five C hops with some pine and citrus but I hate cask beer for the most part, the nose and texture donít do as much for me.

Hazed golden orange color, like unfiltered honey. Faint piney aroma. Stronger piney taste, quite dry.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ the Brew Pub. After about a year since I last had this brew, this still is hop forward but more malty then I remember. (or it could be I adjusted to hop bombs)
Floral starts off the aroma then slight citrus with pine in the last part of the nose. The flavor is mostly the same with nuances of all the hops varietyís coming together in different waves as you sip and the brew reaches room temperature. I canít be totally sure but I feel like this batch has added malts to mellow the hops a bit. The lingering bitterness is still hangs well after the sip without any harshness or being abrasive.

Had on tap at the source, 9:44 pm. Pours an orangeade amber with an off-white head not even a fingernail in length. Aromas of piny hops on the forefront, met with lemon seeds, American yeast, peaches, and white nectarines. Tastes of piny hops, farmhouse yeast, wheat malt, kelp, and beach sand. Refreshing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Portsmouth Brewery. Served in a pint glass. From notes.
A - Golden amber body. Two finger off white head that laces all the way down.
S - Grapefruit, pine, and some light bready caramel malt.
T - Great citrus flavors with some piney hop notes. Bready and sweet with a nice bitter finish. Mouth feel is slick and coating.
O - A really solid IPA. I wasnít amazed by it, but its a very easy drinking and flavorful IPA. I really dig the name and concept of the "C" ingredients.
