Bottle. A nice gold/amber color with a big fluffy white head that sits around for a while. I notice there’s a whole ton of yeast at the bottom of the bottle... Haven’t made it that deep yet, though. Strong citrus hop aroma, along with what seems to be homebrew twang - a little grassy and plastic-like. Flavor begins with citrus but is quickly dominated by the same plastic/grass twang as in the aroma. A small but nice bitterness hangs on at the end. As I continue drinking, the twang becomes less evident and the malt starts to show through a bit more. Still, though, it’s only mediocre.

22 oz. bottle courtesy of lb4lb. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head with decent lacing. The aroma is heavy with citrus hops (orange, grapefruit), sweet caramel malt, light pine and peach mango notes. The flavor is only lightly citrus, but shows more pine or spruce than the nose might indicate. The caramel malt is there, but not a major part of the flavor. Finish is bitter. Medium bodied, soft and at times oily. Decent, not great. Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2009

On cask last Monday. Pours a deep gold with 2 finger head. Aroma is an orangey citrusy, very powerful.
Taste. citrus, lemon, good sharp hop bite. Mouthfeel: kind of oily from the copious amounts of dry hoppiing.
An excellent beer. I had 3 of these and killed the cask.

Thanks to kaggie97 for this beer. Amber red, copper pour with a lacy head. Nose of citrus, flowers, and fresh piney hops. Flavor is an easy drinker, with some bitterness as well as a plastic flavor. Medium bodied with good mouthfeel. Nice IPA, but with a harsher ending that I would like.
