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. DesertDevil (699) - Arizona, USA - MAY 18, 2015
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 (2865) - 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 (548) - 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 (6052) - 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. ContemplateBeer (2097) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Aroma: Fairly significant tangerine, grapefruit and mango hops with a healthy dose of sweet cereal. Appearance: Rich copper color with a fat bone colored head that fades into a sticky skin. Flavor: Definitely lots of grapefruit and mango up front, but sweet cereals can’t help themselves; the sweetness settles down a bit towards the finish, which is fruity and slightly bitter. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation, bittersweet finish. Overall: A little torn, really; crisp but pleasant hop expression, but also a little too much malt for 2015. This isn’t far from being a really good beer. shigadeyo (3817) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Aroma of over-ripe citrus (tangerine, mandarin orange), mellon. Polished copper color with a reddish hue and creamy off white crown. Lots of juicy and ripe citrus in the flavor, balancing maltiness, but it doesn’t overshadow the hops, moderate bitterness overall, tangy persimmon in the finish. Medium body, very smooth and slightly creamy texture. Very good, although there is more Citra in the hop profile and flavor than Mosiac, unfortunately. I still like it.

Big tropical fruit and pine aroma, pours a hazy orange with a thin white head. This is not a subtle beer, the first notes are pine and citrus, with a touch of caramel. These fade out into a long lingering bitter finish. There’s a slightly slick mouthfeel, with a lower carbonation level. A very nice IIPA. bluejacket74 (1995) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2015
12 ounce bottle, label says best before 07/10/15. One of my friends gave me a bottle of this since I haven’t tried it before. Served in a DFH IPA glass, the beer pours a mostly clear copper color with about an inch and a half off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice, the brew smells mostly like citrusy (tropical fruit, tangerine, grapefruit, oranges) hops, along with a bit of bready malt. I think the taste pretty much follows the aroma, but there’s also some mango and piney hops noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick with a moderate amount of carbonation. It’s also smooth and pretty easy to drink. I thought this was a pretty good IPA, I might have to buy a fresher batch of this!
