On tap at the Brew Kettle. Pours a clear golden color with a hint of apricot. Good white head and some nice ringy lacing on the way done. The nose really drops a ton of tropical notes; the Citra character is really prevalent here. Some citrus in the background. Really, really nice. The taste has the same tropical character, but unfortunately ends up really competing with a strong alcohol presence, which carries over into the feel. Dry finish and light body; nothing there to stand up to the alcohol. This would have been a lot better as a 6% beer, I think. Also pretty sure the menu had it listed above 7%. Overall, the nose was killer and the rest was a bit of a disappointment after that. High expectations, for sure. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 04-29-2011

Wow, this was a really good IPA. I’ve heard a lot of buzz in homebrewing circles regarding Citra hops (sold out a lot of places) and I have to say I didn’t 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 Rozi’s Wine house in Lakewood.

Dogbrick (8310) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2014 Sample at Vintage Estate in Boardman. The beer is a clear orange-gold color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrusy hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of grapefruit, hops and sweet malt. The finish is citrusy with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. Pretty good IPA overall.

Bomber from MikeTD. Pours an orange fall like body with a white head, scant head with light retention. Gummy minty viscous fresh cut hop tones. Medium citrus sweetness, light bitter pine notes and a hint of resins. Very nice.

golden with large white head. nose of citrus. firm bitterness before solid, but not spectacular citrus and herbal hop components with a touch of crystal malt and a dry finish. overall the hops are present, but just do not pop to make it a high quality version of the style, despite the dry finish

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Nose is nice and hoppy, juicy citrus, light pine and floral notes as well. Pale malt, light caramel and toast, and just a hint of butter. Pours golden orange, nice head, lace. The flavor is nice and citrusy throughout, light malt sweetness, a hint of toasted. Lingering juicy fruit finish and medium bitterness/dryness/resin. Nice IPA.
