Orange pour, soapy white head. Dank aroma and some sweet citrusy goodness. Flavor is citrusy, juicy and somewhat bitter. But within the hops is some really nice sweet malts. Wonderful.

750mL flip-top growler at Woodshop 8. Pours a low haze, bright golden. Low foam. Nose is sticky fresh mango pulp, juicy. Taste is a bit cheesy, biscuit, nutty, aggressive citrus peel. Juicy, soft palate. Very nice.

750 swing-top growler shared by Chris- thanks again! Pours a mostly clear orange-amber with a smaller white head. Massive aroma, like shoving a hop pellet in each nostril. Herbs, grass, fresh cut wood, caramel, and tropical fruits- mango, passionfruit. Not much citrus to my taste. Light-medium bodied, with a mouthfeel that starts juicy and ends dry. Moderate carbonation. Great IPA.

Growler shared with Max and Brian, courtesy of Brian - huge thanks for this tasty treat. Pours a deep, hazy amber orange body with nice fluffy white lacing that lasts throughout the session. Aroma is fresh cut grass, juicy melon, fresh & funky dank Nelson, lemons and funky pine. Mouthfeel is fuller, fluffy and super sessionable. This reminds me of a fuller, richer version of the Eureka. Incredible cascading notes of dank herb, grass, melons, mangos, lemons and fruit juice. Incredible.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2013 750 growler in a tulip. Pours cloudy orange with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and fruity hops, some fruits, caramel malts, and light bubblegum. Flavor the same with a citrusy hoppiness throughout. Average texture. A pretty good beer.
Edit: Upon further analysis, the hop profile of this beer really stands out and is unique compared to a lot of other beers.

Wow, hazy golden orange color with white head and medium lacing. Nose and flavor of skunky grass and tangy NZ goodness, passionfruit, earth and citrus funk abound. New zealand funk yo, that sessionable good thit, 1 day old. Epic beer, will be searching these guys out.

Swing top. Golden pour with white head. Cluster of hop aromas. Flavor is blended and still a bunch of different flavors but blends reasonably well.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Cloudy gold/orange body with a frothy white head. Aroma of resin, grapefruit, citrus, mango, passion fruit, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Resiny flavor, but not overwhelming because of the light caramel, tangerine and other citrus fruits plus peach and mango. Better than so many one-dimensional, resinous IPAs.
