Bottle at a small tasting with Max, Paul, and Andy. Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. Huge deep piney hops, citrus and caramel. Medium bodied, earthy and bitter throughout. Really nice, long quinine and grapefruit on the finish.

12oz bottle poured a hazy medium hue amber color with a relatively white head. Aroma was grassy, fresh fruits, spice notes, resin hop aroma. Flavor was tropical fruits, hop flavors, fresh - enjoyable IPA.

Bottle, pours pristine copper w/ thin super sticky head, major pineyfloral aroma, awesome, flavor is all about the hops, tons of citrus and pine supported by a moderately caramelly/nutty malt backbone, delicious and a must for hopheads

Poured a Clear rustic Orange with a light white head, small head, but a fine foam lasted through out the glass. Smells like a hop bomb, Grapefruit.....and some sweetness on the end. Tastes as it smells, but better. Full Citrus Hop explosion, Grapefruit, Orange Peel, and a light sweet malt kiss, just for good measure....keeping with the east coast IPAís. Hard to believe its not a Double IPA. Delicious.

Riseabovebb (1) - RockVille, Maryland, USA - FEB 16, 2012 does not count
Aroma seems a bit muted honestly. Sweet smelling. Some citrus notes present, but jot in your face. No bottle date to discern freshness. Nice golden amber color with a solid finger of head. Lacing is already apparent without even taking a sip. Taste: maltier than the bottles description would lead you to believe. ímalt, take a back seat pleaseí seems far from true. Minimal bitterness. Bubblegum. Wondering if this is an old bottle... My trade partner was legit, so hard to call it old, but it was an extra. Mouthfeel is fine. Medium bodied as expected. O: perhaps it was not quite fair to follow a heady topper with this, but this seems rather tame. different styles, I know, but this didnít make the citra shine for me.

Very strong hoppy smell right off the bat. Nice citrusy taste with an awesome hoppy after taste. Leaves you wanting to get another sip!

yourefragile (140) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 12, 2012
12 oz bottle, thanks to Dan for sharing this. Clear, dark copper with a light stream of carbonation supporting a persistent creamy, off white head. Clumps of sticky lacing. Resiny, bready aroma. Strong citrus undertones and mild floral bitterness. Medium thick, creamy body with light carbonation and a smooth, balanced bitter finish. Strong caramel and biscuit malt body with a potent Citra hop finish, resiny and pulpy, but not overly bitter. Very impressive
