drjoeng (1380) - SINGAPORE - MAY 26, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2016 6.4%ABV. IPA.
Tapped out an amber. 12ºSRM.
Nose has sweet citrus and is most remiscent of a ripe pink guava. There are some subtle pine like hints, but you’d have to reach a little to get it.
Mouthfeel is soapy. There are broad sweet dark malt flavors of caramel, toffee, toasted barley, malt milkshakes. Hop flavors are pine, grass, resin and orange peel.
Finish is surprisingly abbreviated for an IPA of this pedigree. Makes is approachable.
Good gateway IPA.

Mild fruity/herbal hops...
Excellent flavour.... bartzluke (598) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 22, 2015
12 oz chilled pour from tap into a Spiegelau IPA glass at Growler Guys in Portland, Oregon. Golden, clear, great carbonation, perfect fluffy white head. Nose is strong citrus. Medium to full body and creamy. Crisp with a nice bite of carbonation. Very fruity taste. Tropical fruit (pineapple mainly and some mango) and citrus (tangerine). A fresh and drinkable IPA. Great example of the style. arn8897 (447) - Trenton, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Aromas of citrus and bread with some hoppiness. But nothing overwhelming. Nice ipa. Beerman6686 (6611) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2015
This poured a hazy lighter orange color, almost like orange juice with a white head. Aroma was of orangey and pineapple type hops, very juicy atoms. Flavor similar, body is perfect, this beer truely deserves to be called freshly squeezed.

Draft at Porkopolis in Chandler, AZ. Bold freshly cut oranges highlight the fragrant nose along with hints of lime and a touch of pine needles. The color is deep orange with traces of copper; a brief pure white head tops it off. Like the aroma, the taste is citrus-heavy with oranges and tangerine before a sharp resiny pine note adds some bitterness to the juicy flavors. Medium body. One heck of a delicious IPA that is often readily available. MrBunn (2848) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear orange with a decent head and aromas of oranges and flowers. Flavor has a lot of citrus and floral notes with a honey sweetness and a bit of ABV burn to it. Very nice. bnokk (545) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 17, 2015
draft at Dean’s Hops & Vine Cheviot, OH
APPEARANCE - darker copper color, perfectly cleared.
NOSE - super citrus explosion.
FLAVOR - same as nose. But the alure fades over the length of the pint.
NOTES - good beer, but not as great as everyone’s love affair with Citra hop would let you believe. rumproasts (6035) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 15, 2015
bottle. Deep golden with one finger head. Maltier base than I was expecting, but obviously the focus is the big pungent citrus hops. Well done stuff.

Had high hopes but was let down. The first sip is shockingly bitter. Not as much citrus as the name led me to believe.
