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.

Aroma is toffee, fruit and a very complex Cascade. The flavor is fruit, berries, mild/medium sweetness, malts and a mix of tart and bitter in the finish.

Light amber out of the bottle with an attractive white head. Very juicy tropical fruit and orange nose. Flavors of orange, peach, bread dough and resin. The finish sweetens up with some candied orange peel and a bit of a burn on the tongue.

Enjoyed at a friends place while playing X-Wing on a Sunday. Appearance is a cloudy gold with a thin white head. Aroma is lightly floral and citrusy, smells nice. Taste is good, finish is pretty dry, nice apricot notes, light grass, nice complexities, bit of spice.

Goldenrod yellow, very minimal white head. Very sweet, citrus fruity nose. Very bitter, some small amount of sweetness. Medium body, pretty oily, quite acidic. Not terribly alcoholic. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
