4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

Wowza! This is a tasty treat. Huge citrus bouquet in the aroma and a nice smooth body with a pleasant bitter finish. It is well balanced and crisp and isnít too boozy for a beer that is almost 7%. I really like it - may be one of my very favorite IPAs.

Bottle. Pours orange with a thin white head that lingers. Citrus hop aroma over light carbonation. Nice grapefruit and sap flavor, solid complexity for a single. Love the bready finish.

Bottle from Erica and Chris. Pours a nice hazy gold with a small white head and decent lace. Great aroma of Pine and Grapefruit explodes out of the bottle upon opening. Flavor strikes a balance between the tropical fruit, citrus and pine notes. There is a lite bitterness at the end. Crisp, fresh, enjoyable.

Draft. Golden with a small white head. Visible carbonation. Aroma of lemon, honey, pine, and cut grass. Subtle but lengthy hop bitterness. Honey, sugary, lemon, citrusy, papaya. Easy drinking.

Tasted from draft. Pours a clear gold with white head. Aroma is citrus fruit and pine. Some grapefruit notes. Flavor is a moderate clean bitterness throughout. Excellently balanced with nice malt backbone. Flavors of grapefruit, orange, pine, caramel, toffee, biscuits. Definitely one of the top IPAs.

bottle that poured medium orange to light copper with white head and nice lacing. mild to medium malt base and a distinct aroma of citrus like almost pineapple and banana blend and I want to say coconut which is truly weird. but it smells great. maybe a touch of buttery caramel. the flavor all that and more...actually smoother than I would have figured at 70 ibuís. but there is a distinct floral and citrus hop blend with a mild malt base. this beer taste fantastic.
