Wow, this was a really good IPA. Iíve heard a lot of buzz in homebrewing circles regarding Citra hops (sold out a lot of places) and I have to say I didnít understand the buzz until I tasted this beer. A light orange body that is clear but not brilliant under a soft white head. Aroma is very citrus-y with a lot of pineapple notes. Bitterness is quite apparent but not harsh in any way. This beer has got its IBUs in all the right places to make it extremely drinkable. Mouthfeel was smooth and good. This was a very good beer. I had this on-draft at Roziís Wine house in Lakewood.

Bottle. Deep amber body with a frothy, off-white head. Aroma of citrus, pineapple, orange peel, resin, pine, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture and lively carbonation. Fluffy mouthfeel. Inviting nose. Nice balance between citrus and resin. Clean.

Bottle from Rabbott, undated but fresh, drunk 3/25/16.
Clear golden, light amber body is well-carbonated and topped by a large white head showing good retention.
The nose is full of both herb and fruit, with some light candied citrus somewhat sweetening/balancing things and light pineapple and mango for juiciness. Cracker and biscuit like malts remain in the background while no heavy resin appears, nor alcohol. Definitely not a juice bomb and quite West Coast, as they say. Much more austere than the average NE IPA, but still very well-executed.
Soft, malty texture with creamy carbonation kicks things off the right way, with light biscuit and grain balancing lemon, candied orange and dry mango/pineapple. Light mint-like herbal suggestions add some complexity and it finishes with apricot-orange and medium bitterness. No resin or alcohol.

From a 12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy gold with a thick white head. Grapefruit aroma. Favors of adoring orange and tropical fruits. Bitter finish.

12oz bottle huge thanks to Ed5388. Poured an orange body with a foamy off white head. Aroma of rotting citrus, wet dough, lemon skin, crusts, brown bread and grassy hops. Flavor is similar, hops seem older, more earthy and grassy than citrus or pine. Full body, slightly creamy, average carbonation. Not sure if this is an old bottle or people are just overrating this.

A long lost whale finally obtained, oh thank you oh so much, Drew! This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a semi-hazy but mostly transparent soft golden color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated gently. Leaves a messy lacing all around. The smell had a lush sweet citrus hops up front allowing a delicate sweet malt underneath. The taste was fully bittersweet with an added sweet grassy sweetness roaming underneath. Light sticky citrus aftertaste. Semi-dry sweet citrus finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a solid sessionability about it. Carbonation feels good allowing a nice bitterness to hit appropriately. Overall, whale slain, and totally worthy of having again, a top notch AIPA that I know I would have again if I could ever get my hands on again.

Pours a light gold with white head. Has a strong citrus/floral hop bomb aroma. A strong citrus hope taste with floral notes, pine, and sweet honey. A bitter hop aftertaste but not overwhelming as some citrus, pine and honey also linger.
