Interesting hop flavour,doubt I would pay OVER $15 for a 4/pk of 16 oz cans.This was a gift.Let hipsters pay for your new brewery,I will shop elsewhere for better brews.A very greedy brewer that should be located in Israel.The number of top ratings for this brew and hell shows shills and ratbastardry at work.

Can. Clear copper pour with a big white head. Citrusy hop aromas. Citrusy, grassy hop notes supported by a sturdy caramel malt backbone.

Man, this stuff smells good. Seriously good. I could make a cologne out of this stuff. Anyway, this is all about the hops, obviously. And thats fine with me. Thanks to grownfool for this one!

Can into shaker. The aroma is terrific. Big head that goes down quickly. Amber color. Very fruity smelling, lots of lemon but maybe tangerine or mandarin too. Tastes very wet and grassy. Bitter but really clean. The beer is fantastic, but the aroma is one of the best Ive smelled.

Shared with kristen, james and veronica. Clear golden pour with good white head. Great citrusy lightly peachy hop. Fresh and green, not resinous though. Good perfect wet bitter finish. Great beer.

Can to glass. This beer has an agressive nose of citrus flavors that are simply excellent. It seems to manifest itself in the form of grapefruit and some Orange. Slightly floral as well? One of my favorite aromas. the pour is a beautiful orange/light amber color with a large head. This has a some decent bitterness to the finish, but isnt over powering. This years wet was pretty amazing. Citra is one of my favorite hops and this beer showcases why. I like this years version better than last years. I think it was more aromatic with all Citra instead of the half simcoe.

2011 can provided by Blake for our wet hop tasting. Pours a brilliant burnt orange, auburn color with a fingers worth of off-white head. There is a decent amount of delicate lacing along the edges of the glass. The nose is spectacular! The notes for this beer states that it is 100% citra hops, they are definitely prominent. Wets nose reminds me exactly of Zombie Dust. There is a unique fruit character to it, white grape, pineapple, etc. Starts out with a pleasant sweetness, and then falls back on lingering hop bitterness. There is pine, grapefruit, white grape, and apricot. The beer has a long, bitter finish and has a medium body. Best wet hop of the night. The 100% citra has done really nice things for this beer.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2011
16oz can courtesy of Tom... Pours a mostly hazy orangey copper hue and topped with a creamy white head... Melony tropical fruit and sweet tarts and a touch of aspirin... Flavors are semi-sweet with a citrus pineapple feel to go alongside some aspirin and sweet tarts. Medium fluffy body with soft to medium carbonation. Not bad but not up to par with some of the hoppy offerings had these past few days.

drpimento (3454) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 17, 2011
This is perhaps the best IPA ive ever had! Poured with a small to average off white head and a little lace. Color is a clear amber. Aroma is the freshest hops and balanced against malt, caramel, fresh bread. Flavor is like nose and again the freshest hops perfectly matched to the malt, yeast, and carbonic tang. Body and carbonation excell. Finish is like flavor and surprisingly of average length considering the fullness of the flavor.

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - NOV 17, 2011
A couple pours on draft at the 3F XV Anniversary party. Medium amber pour with a thick white head. Aroma of dank hops, grass, pine, tree leaves. Lots of citrus manifesting itself as grapefruit and orange peel, a touch of tangerine. Some malt backbone, soft toffee and caramel notes. Smells nice enough. Flavor is strongly bitter. Sticky, resiny and pine hops. Lots of citrus, grapefruit, tangerine. Some more sweetness than i remember in the last few batches. Toffee, caramel, a cotton candy-esque sugar. Its still delicious but not quite what i remembered before. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel, average carbonation. Overall, really great ipa.
