Sample at the brewpub. Slightly hazy orange-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing. Piney hops, citrus and malt in the nose. Light to medium body with flavors of resiny hops, citrus and bready malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hop aftertaste. Decent overall.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2014 Had on cask at the brewery. Good flavors of the five C hops with some pine and citrus but I hate cask beer for the most part, the nose and texture don’t do as much for me. Dfonorow (2358) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2014
On tap at brewery. Golden amber with a moderate sized white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine needles, resin, and orange peel. Flavor is a bit bready and sweet with notes of pineapple, citrus, flowers, and bitterness. dnstone (4018) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Hazed golden orange color, like unfiltered honey. Faint piney aroma. Stronger piney taste, quite dry.

Draft @ the Brew Pub. After about a year since I last had this brew, this still is hop forward but more malty then I remember. (or it could be I adjusted to hop bombs)
Floral starts off the aroma then slight citrus with pine in the last part of the nose. The flavor is mostly the same with nuances of all the hops variety’s coming together in different waves as you sip and the brew reaches room temperature. I can’t be totally sure but I feel like this batch has added malts to mellow the hops a bit. The lingering bitterness is still hangs well after the sip without any harshness or being abrasive.

Had on tap at the source, 9:44 pm. Pours an orangeade amber with an off-white head not even a fingernail in length. Aromas of piny hops on the forefront, met with lemon seeds, American yeast, peaches, and white nectarines. Tastes of piny hops, farmhouse yeast, wheat malt, kelp, and beach sand. Refreshing. jcwattsrugger (12579) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - AUG 16, 2012

Tasting at Papsø’sdavey101 (751) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Cloudy orange-light amber color; small head. Nice hop aroma, fruity, resiny, with bitter oranges, light sweat, earthy too. Medium strength body, with caramel and toffee flavor, and quite resiny and earthy hops. Aggressive, quite pleasant.
On tap at the Portsmouth Brewery. Served in a pint glass. From notes.
A - Golden amber body. Two finger off white head that laces all the way down.
S - Grapefruit, pine, and some light bready caramel malt.
T - Great citrus flavors with some piney hop notes. Bready and sweet with a nice bitter finish. Mouth feel is slick and coating.
O - A really solid IPA. I wasn’t amazed by it, but its a very easy drinking and flavorful IPA. I really dig the name and concept of the "C" ingredients.
