Shared bottle. Pours a somewhat hazy golden orange with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and grass. Taste is grapefruit, pineapple, tropical, pine, grass, and malt. Excellent. Homer321 (5250) - Melboring, Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle. Poured into big snifter. Nose is pungent grass and typical Citra dankiness. I could smell this all day. Pour is a hazy orange with a small white head. Taste is moderately tropical with a pineapple and melon flavor. Very light malt presence, just a little breadiness. Moderately firm bitterness at first but definitely builds as I drink it. No detectable alcohol and very quenching. Could stand just a bit mor carbonation for the mouthfeel and to break it up. Very nice. bvc (1244) - Washington, USA - NOV 14, 2014
22oz, thanks D! Clean orangey golden, ample head that settles. Sweaty, pithy, hints of lemon and pineapple, dry white pepper. Light body, crackery dryness, hints of bitter citrus meld with the hops to really make this beer balanced and easy drinking for 8%. robbienate (113) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
Pours a hazy, golden color; fluffy white head with excellent retention and fine-bubbled lacing; tiny bubbles, beautiful pour. Loads of dry, grassy and herbal hop character in the aroma; nicely resiny and dry; dank; strongly reminiscent of herb. Medium-to-full body: creamy, softly textured mouthfeel despite the lively carbonation. PartyFowle (954) - - OCT 12, 2014
Enjoyed at the 2014 Firestone Walker Invitational. Hazy yellow, like fresh-squeezed lemon. Aroma displays lovely citrus/grass character, while the flavor adds a resinous, juicy hop quality. Very good, but not mind-blowing.

22oz bomber pours with an opaque deep gold body that has copper hues and supports a white head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet tangelo, clementine and tart pithy grapefruit aromatics. Wow, inviting smell. The taste is bold with tangelo and clementine citrus notes that are heavy with bitter hops and also smooth with modest malt sweetened tangelo hop flavor. It ends refreshing and fairly dry. This is solid hoppy brew with plenty of rich citrusy hoppiness. slowrunner77 (13206) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 1, 2014
this was originally up there (though below) Pliny and Pliny as my favorite of the IIPA fest. It’s citrus rind sweet and bitter goodness stood up to the biggest and best...we even went back for seconds. not all hops, but not exactly balanced, it’s bright and fragrant aroma and taste were great. i;d buy bottles if i ever saw em. lower ibus (75) than most or all at the fest, but more flavor. Not quite as much of a WOW beer bottled, but pretty damn nice." BrewBoxer (2667) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Draft at Mudville 9 NYC. Pours a light tan color. Crisp easy drinking not overly hoppy beer. Goes down easy for a 2x iPa craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Huge huge thanks to a generous patron at CK! Pretty, vibrant peach pour, hazy, with a solid fluffy white head. Nose and flavor are glorious, with apricot, pineapple, dank lemongrass and chinotto peel resonating throughout the palate. Not an ounce of sweetness or malt. Clean, bitter, and medium to high effervescence. Beautifully done. Luk_ (243) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2014
range brown opaque pour with small but dense white foam. Aroma is a blast of tropical fruits, lots of pinneaples, mango and oranges. Also some of the distinctive cat pee and wet grass from citra hops. Taste is also very fruity, some resin with definite bitterness without being over the top. Could have a little more carbonation. The perfect example of the fruity IIPA.
