A - Pours a super clear golden-orange with a finger of frothy slightly off-white head. Head fades at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lace. S - Aroma is full of citrus hops, orange zest, and other tropical fruits with some grapefruit and pineapple. Some sweet caramel malt as well in the background. T - Starts off with some orange and tropical hops with some mild bitterness and a touch of caramel malt in the background. Through the middle, more bitterness comes through with some pineapple, grapefruit, and a bit of pine hop. The finish is a mix of citrus hops, orange zest, bitterness, and a bit of sweet malt. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth with a dry bitter finish that lingers. D - Very drinkable. Very nice west coast IPA with an excellent hop profile from start to end.

illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Bottled from Miked. Pours copper amber with a dissipating ivory head. Aroma of floral hops and caramelly pale malts. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Somewhat complex malt backbone of caramel, chocolate, and toasty malts, nicely countered by the juicy citra hops. Bitter finish with resin at the very end. Very nice IPA, especially if you like malty IPA. West Coast in bitterness, but East Coast for maltiness.

beergodd1 (400) - Conneaut, Ohio, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Poured a Clear rustic Orange with a light white head, small head, but a fine foam lasted through out the glass. Smells like a hop bomb, Grapefruit.....and some sweetness on the end. Tastes as it smells, but better. Full Citrus Hop explosion, Grapefruit, Orange Peel, and a light sweet malt kiss, just for good measure....keeping with the east coast IPAs. Hard to believe its not a Double IPA. Delicious.

Aroma seems a bit muted honestly. Sweet smelling. Some citrus notes present, but jot in your face. No bottle date to discern freshness. Nice golden amber color with a solid finger of head. Lacing is already apparent without even taking a sip. Taste: maltier than the bottles description would lead you to believe. malt, take a back seat please seems far from true. Minimal bitterness. Bubblegum. Wondering if this is an old bottle... My trade partner was legit, so hard to call it old, but it was an extra. Mouthfeel is fine. Medium bodied as expected. O: perhaps it was not quite fair to follow a heady topper with this, but this seems rather tame. different styles, I know, but this didnt make the citra shine for me.

Very strong hoppy smell right off the bat. Nice citrusy taste with an awesome hoppy after taste. Leaves you wanting to get another sip!
