Pours a very bright and clear honey/gold color with a huge tan head...excellent retention and lacing. Aroma is pungent with very fresh citrus!...pineapple, mango, orange blossom...just a hint of lightly roasted malt. Flavor has light maltiness...touch of caramely sweetness...and and nice floral citrus...pineapple and a bit of spicy grapefruit...earthy near the end. Mouthfeel is just the right amount of sticky and body to sip or suck it down fast...finish is dry and spicy/floral. Damn!

Can poured into glass. What a fantastic beer! The hops are subtle in the aroma but thatís actually a plus for this beer. Has a great flavor that is a mix between dry, hoppy, earthy and citrusy. Outstanding and well balanced.

4-pack from MatSciGuy...thanks Levi! - Pours beautiful clear amber with a big foamy white head. Blast of citrus on the nose--this is one that you can smell from across the room. Wow. Lots of citrus rind in there, and the malt backbone is thin and sweet.. The taste is a bit less pungent from a hop perspective, and the sharp pine flavor comes through a bit. Drier than Iíd expect from the nose, really resiny, and leaves a bit of a hoppy funk in your mouth on the long finish. Dangerously easy to drink, which makes the 6% a really good thing. Fantastic.

16 oz. Can, Thanks to Tripplebrew. At the crack of the can I could smell luscious hops. Slow carbonation makes a full, fluffy white head with great retention. The smell of fresh hops is intoxicating. Awesome nose. Flavor is mild grapefruit, pine and a touch of floral hops. Body is medium. Very light bitter finish. Somewhat dry finish. I personally like the Citra hops. I NEVER would have guessed this came from a can. I would have said draft if I havenít pored it from the can myself. My kind of IPA.

Can thanks to Atom. Pours out a clear moderate amber color with a nice off white head. Aroma is of juicy fresh hops, citrus grapefruit and some light lingering malts. Taste is citrus, tropical fruits, light pine and a light malt balance in there. Very fresh and juicy hop taste. Man I like wet hopped beers.

Huge thanks to brian23456 for sending me this in a recent trade!
Pours a slightly cloudy dark golden orange with tangerine hues and two finger frothy, pillowy white head. Excellent retention, only slowly fading into a lasting cap that coats the glass with soapy lacing on itís way down.
Dank floral hop aroma with lots of resinous oils as well as some earthy pine countered by sweet tropical and citrus fruit notes. Hints of pineapple, mango, grapefruit and citrus rind balance out the earthier notes. Pale malt presence with some biscuit and graham.
Medium bodied with lots of dank, luscious resinous oils that create a complex hop profile. Delicately floral with a decent amount of biter dryness balanced by some sweeter fruit notes and pale malt. Hints of earthy, grassy pine countered by tropical/citrus fruits, especially grapefruit and pineapple. The malt backbone is noticeable without getting in the way of the fresh hops, giving off subtle hints of biscuit and graham cracker.
Overall this beer is complex, very well balanced, extremely flavorful and dangerously quaffable. One of the best hoppy beers Iíve had lately.

The IPA pours golden and clear in color, lighter than expected. The aroma and the flavor have nice notes of the citra hops, then there is a bit of maltiness as well that rounds it all out.

Thanks craftycarl21! Dark amber pour with a lively white head. The nose holds grassy herbals, nectar fruits, and lots of biscuity and bready malts. Lots of orange citrus in the flavor with dank fresh hop character, clementine, tangerine, and a bready malt profile. Medium palate with medium carbonation. Yummy!
