On tap at Troegs. Pours a clear golden apple juice color. Aroma of grass and citrus. Flavors of tropical citrus and melon. Not much malt character to this guy buy the hops dont overpower. Good stuff.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Great IPA here! Pours golden into the glass, with a nice wispy reductive head that leaves trace (if any) lacing. The nose is classic grapefruit and pine. Flavors are similar, grapefruit and orange citrus, a nice malt backbone, and finishing with a nice dry piney bitter hop. The mouthfeel is playful and semi-active, while also providing a medium-full body and lightly oily palate. Very well-balanced and put together! Excellent example of the style, with evidence of care put into its creation. Superb job!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2015 A solid IPA. Very well balanced but no layers. The malt balances with a touch of nectar. Very nice lemon citrus hop profile. A touch of pine, no juice. Since every beer had to use citra since it came out, I really like how it was used only in the dry hop and the characteristics it seems to lend.

I’ve been waiting to have a Tröegs beer for a long time so I was super excited when I got to Norfolk and found a six pack. Tons of citrus and grassiness in the aroma. Really awesome stuff. I like how this is an "imperial pale ale" it’s so clean a fresh. Tastes is really hoppy and bitter. Very clean taste and super easy to drink. Almost too easy. Really glad I finally found a beer by these guys!

12 oz bottle from Niagara Falls Wegmans. Pours a clearish golden colour with modest-sized white head. Aroma is citrus forward with some resiny notes and a light, sweet maltiness. Flavour is also fairly critusy, definitely grapefruit, with some underlying spicy, resin character and some sweet candyishness. Lingering citric bitterness in finish. Impressive.
