Tap. Nice aroma and a bit amped over psuedosue, but had a cloudy pour and not enough punch in my opinion. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Hunahpu’s Day 2014 served in souvenir taster. Hazy yellow-orange body with a very tall white head. I got the very last pour, so it was coming out of a pitcher that was used to let the foam settle after the keg kicked. Lots of lacing and a persistent head. Aroma is citrus and tropical fruits, grass, and some bready malts once you cut through the Citra onslaught. Taste is a light citrus/tropical sweetness initially followed by moderate grass and citrus peel bitterness on the finish. Medium body, very creamy texture (thought this might have been because the keg kicked, but others seem to agree), average to soft carbonation, dry finish with a nice lingering bitterness.

CBC Session 1. Growler share, big thanks to Krjukoff. Hazy pale gold beer, big bubbly white head. Palate is light and dry with very modest carbonation. Floral yeasty.sweetness. Whisper of something fruity. Dry finish. Profoundly disappointing.

Draft. Pulpy looking OJ body. Smaller soapy white head. Bigger medium body. Pulpy fruity. Full of meaty fruit. Juicy and pulpy. Tropical. Orange. Grapefruit. Mango. Such drinkability. Great flow. Wow. "Fresh squeezed" Besides the original Sue, nothing else like it.

On tap, pours a very murky orange with a thick white head, holy crap, this thing smells amazing, tons of tropical fruit and citrus all over the place, could probably smell it from 10 ft away, the flavor is pretty much what you would expect after smelling it, tons of citrus and fruit with a smooth finish, love that the abv is turned down some so I could enjoy a few, dang good.

180cl (64oz) growler, fresh batch, new exclusive American brew Anno 2014, thx alot to Hans for sharing!, very complex bitter brew, fruity/woody and slightly floral/sweet, very balanced, cloudy, rocky head, top class!, ’Probably one of the best IPAs I tasted till now!’

Leighton (10674) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2014
Growler shared at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014, Session 1. Thanks, oh generous RBian! Pours mostly clear, yellow-gold with a frothy, white head. Solid DIPA, nice and juicy, lots of citrus, grapefruit in particular. Moderate pith. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Dry and lightly pithy to finish with mild warmth, low bitterness, lots of citrus juices, notable pale malt sweetness. Very good DIPA. Best on RB? Of course not.

Growler - pours a murky orange w/ white frothy head. The nose is very citrusy - oranges, tangerines, lemons, and limes. Very much the same in the taste plus some hoppy bitterness. This beer is awesome!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
