UPDATED: SEP 26, 2014 "depending on oneís mood, this is as good, or even better than Hoptimum, which is a great iipa. Dont worry - i had em side by side to be sure, liver be damned! This one has my favorite hop, CITRA, among the 4 varieties. Side by side this beer looks almost lager yellow, but beats Hoptimum in overall aroma (pungent floral and citrus hops) and flavor (a little sweet, more hoppy than Hoptimum w/o being as bitter, and at 8.4, doesnít show as much alcohol. Hoptimum is a bit more complex with itís malt profile, so Iíll call it a wash."

Smells like cleaning liquid. Can't grasp the taste...definitely does not hit my palate.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2012
On tap at Churchkey. Very dry; heavy floral. Light citrus and pine in the background. Nose is similar with just a touch of backend sweetness. Bit too bitter.

kathouse (1627) - Nevada, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Clear and golden, the white foam puts off odors of pear, grapefruit, and mangos. Furtive acid balances a slight caramel maltiness. More of the citrus in the finish which is long and dry.

bwa5879 (899) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Medium yellow clear pour. Short white head. Citrus and strong floral scents. A strange hint of popcorn as well. Medium body. Hops take over your taste buds. Very hop forward. Very very good. Light beer, may be drank too quickly in fact. Tastes of pine, and floral hops. Finishes slightly bitter but not bitterly so.

b3shine (8123) - Indiana, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Draft to taster. Looks fine; smells bitter. Itís an unbalanced hop bomb with an average mouthful. Not a big fan of this.

argo0 (13235) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Draft. Crystal clear apple juice body, medium off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, catty/grapefruit, light bread. Taste is moderately sweet, catty, some grapefruit, light bread. Medium-full body, some resin, light acidity, nice hop burp. Nothing amazing about this, just a straightforward scrumptious IIPA.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Tap at CK. Brilliant gold pour with a small layer of foam. Crystal clear. Dank, oily, resinous hop nose. No specific hop varietal comes to mind. Taste is juicy, oily, small sugar and sweet jackfruit plus cantaloupe and pineapple. Rich, sticky. No cheese, no strawberry, no red fruitiness, no stale character. Thank the lord.
