COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
crisp and refreshing IPA exploding with fresh hop character, named for a somewhat forgotten yet amazing hop variety named Crystal. A unique hopping program gives this beer a massive, clean bitterness and fresh hop aroma bursting with hints of citrus and fresh fruit.

ben4321 (3784) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Location: 22 oz bottle from Printer’s Row Wine Shop, 6/3/14

Aroma: It has a light nose of fruity hops, clean, crystal malts, and some pine notes
Appearance: It pours a clear, bright orange color with a thin head and minimal lace
Flavor: The flavor is lightly sweet, clean malt flavor, and a mid-plus hop bitterness as well
Palate: The body is medium, leaning light, it has a smooth, clean feel, and a mid-dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a very solid beer, but at the same time, I just wanted it to be a little better. There isn’t too much going on aroma-wise, and the appearance is only okay. Overall though, this beer is solid enough to get a score this high from me.

deyholla (6503) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 26, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear golf with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has notes of resinous pine and grass with some earthy grain backing as well as a hint of onion. Flavor is more mild with lots of grass, a bit of onion and light grains backing.

Onslow (1132) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAY 24, 2014
On tap at Town Hall in Ohio City / Cleveland. One of the best IPA’s I’ve tried in a long time - clear orange brew with distinctive aroma of citrus and tropical fruit. Taste is mild sweetness at the start and an immense and complex hoppiness that is just excellent. I was going to try a few other brews on the menu but stuck with this.

jh773 (78) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2014 Clear golden orange with almost no head. Smells like tangerine, a touch of marijuana. Very clean body, big grapefruit flavor with hints of orange peel. Refreshing, but not complex enough to really stand out.

Barnoloid (116) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Had on tap at Small Bar Logan Square. This IPA has a great fruity nose and citrus/pine sap feel to the taste. Perfect drinking for a late spring evening - a real thirst quencher that goes down a treat with a good touch of bitterness on the back end.

Bomber with Z, pours a hazy golden color with a very foamy soapy head. Nose is citrus, with a slight predominance of lemon with resin and pine notes as well. Taste is bitter and full of citrus, with a predominance of fresh lemon and more subtle pine. Finish is bitter sweet and ends on the same hppy citrus notes. Quaff Score 8 / 10

Pours a hazy golden with a white head and aroma of hops and citrus. Taste is bitter sweet, lemon zest, citrus, fresh hops, and fruits leading to a bitter, lemony, fruity finish. Delicious IPA, lots of flavor
