Got some of this on growler tap at Premier in Buffalo, i think this is awesome that this brewery is here in Buffalo, NY. Off the jump, this beer smells amazing, lots of fruit, lemon zest and grapefruit notes. It poors a light golden yellow, and has a nice medium palate with a nice bitterness to it. Taste is nice with some good fruit notes, light to medium bitterness and sweet. Overall this is a nice ipa and a good beer alltogether. Just found out about this brewery and i like it already, good stuff!
From the 12 fl oz bottle. Hazy orange amber pour under a modest and short lived off white head. Notable esters of pine, herbs, and orange zest. The body is medium or better. A little astringent. The taste brings out the same pine and floral characteristics with a slightly lingering bitter finish. radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2016
On tap at Blue Monk. Golden yellow in colour with a thin white head, good lacing. The aroma is of intense fruit and hops, citrus. The flavour is of citrus hops upfront, moderate bitterness, malt coming up at the end. Finishes long, hoppy and bitter. Fantastic stuff. gramity (1672) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 24, 2015
Pours golden light amber with a lacey white head. Aroma brings crispy citrus hops. Flavor brings citrus hops on a drier body, smooth and delicious. JoeMcPhee (9427) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2015
Pale golden pour. The nose is awesome - bright and really fresh with an intensely fruity and hoppy aroma. There’s a touch of soft fruity aroma along with a little bit of orange and some nice lean pale malt. Slightly crackery and a little bit malty. A really damn tasty IPA. mar (5423) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Gold pour with a white head. Tropical fruits, florals, fresh hops, and bright. Great palate, fresh floral hops, grapefruit and a crisp finish.

Draft at Micros at Marcy, slightly murky yellow pour. Bi citrusy hops. Very flavorful. Lemon zest and pith. Very impressive IPA
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2015 Hopefully this is the correct name of the beer. I got the title from Untappd. It was listed as "Mosaic IPA" at Blue Monk and doesn’t really seem to have a title on the CBW blog. On cask at Blue Monk. Pours a nice dark yellow hazy color. Really smooth from the cask. Hoppy, citrusy, a little bit flowery. All over the place in a good way. I love the way they make their IPAs. Yet another hit.thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 29, 2013

Growler fill from the brewery. This is just a fantastic IPA, and probably my favorite CBW beer to date. Has a bit of funk to it, but tons of citrus and a little bit of floral feel as well. Very balanced and drinkable for the style.
(Draught) clear gold, fine white bubbles. This beer is full of big oniony hops, grass, herbal, agave, bitter, and dry. Ron (3994) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 11, 2013
On tap at the brewery on Brew Tours ’13’ Buffalo. Pours a hazy gold with a large lasting frothy white head. Some lacing on the glass. Aroma has lots of piney, citrusy and catty hops! Flavor is nice and hoppy with an average bitter finish. Medium bodied. Enjoyable merc7186 (3142) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - NOV 7, 2013

Overall, a nice balanced IPA that will mildly burn out the taste buds but not wreck the palette
