UPDATED: SEP 26, 2014 "depending on one’s mood, this is as good, or even better than Hoptimum, which is a great iipa. Dont worry - i had em side by side to be sure, liver be damned! This one has my favorite hop, CITRA, among the 4 varieties. Side by side this beer looks almost lager yellow, but beats Hoptimum in overall aroma (pungent floral and citrus hops) and flavor (a little sweet, more hoppy than Hoptimum w/o being as bitter, and at 8.4, doesn’t show as much alcohol. Hoptimum is a bit more complex with it’s malt profile, so I’ll call it a wash." argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Draft. Crystal clear apple juice body, medium off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, catty/grapefruit, light bread. Taste is moderately sweet, catty, some grapefruit, light bread. Medium-full body, some resin, light acidity, nice hop burp. Nothing amazing about this, just a straightforward scrumptious IIPA. kathouse (1893) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Clear and golden, the white foam puts off odors of pear, grapefruit, and mangos. Furtive acid balances a slight caramel maltiness. More of the citrus in the finish which is long and dry. oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - JUN 4, 2012
On tap at Churchkey for the tap takeover. Clear golden pour with a nice sudsy white head. Big citrus and lemon with resinous sap and fruit cocktail nectar fruits. Medium body with a sticky resinous finish. GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Tap at CK. Brilliant gold pour with a small layer of foam. Crystal clear. Dank, oily, resinous hop nose. No specific hop varietal comes to mind. Taste is juicy, oily, small sugar and sweet jackfruit plus cantaloupe and pineapple. Rich, sticky. No cheese, no strawberry, no red fruitiness, no stale character. Thank the lord.

Medium yellow clear pour. Short white head. Citrus and strong floral scents. A strange hint of popcorn as well. Medium body. Hops take over your taste buds. Very hop forward. Very very good. Light beer, may be drank too quickly in fact. Tastes of pine, and floral hops. Finishes slightly bitter but not bitterly so. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 28, 2012
On draft at the Livermore Saloon. It pours bright yellow with a white head. The aroma is very peppery with lots of citrus and grass. The flavor is dry with some bitter citrus peel, grass and some light biscuity honey malt. Light bodied and easy to drink. Nice. JohnnyJ (5562) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Draft. Clear golden color, white head. Citrusy hops, caramel malt, sweetness, and a balancing bitterness. Good but not very memorable.
