Almost tasted like drinking citrus juice. The beer was was quality beer but maybe a tad to filling and boozy. Labeled as 9% but tasted more like 10 or 11%. If you love citrus hoppy beers this is one to seek out. jtclockwork (16433) - , New Jersey, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours cloudy gold with white head. Nose/taste of lime, lemon, grapefruit, citrus, orange, grapefruit rind and caramel malt. Some spicy and earth hops. Finishes dry and bitter with lemon and lime zest. Medium body. Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Big thanks to mikeincharleston for the bottle. Thanks Mike! 22 oz bottle served in a Founders tulip. Bottled July 19th, 2012 (!!!)
A: Pours a clear amber color with a frothy white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin film and bubble collar that leaves splotchy lace down the glass.
S: Big hop oils up front. Lots of citrus rind, mostly a semi-tart grapefruit, and some resiny smells going on. The malt body is muddled underneath, but a residual sweetness is there to remind you that (hopefully) the malts will be there to balance out the massive hops.
T: Definitely hoppy, but the malt body really comes on strong to balance out the residual hop oils. Slightly tart grapefruit rind with a touch of flesh, some lemon zest, pine bitterness and malty sweetness.
M: Sticky body, but the finish is definitely on the drier side. Medium carbonation. Slightly teeth coating as well which is surprising for the dryness of the finish.
O: The was a definite hop bomb with a dry malt body. I think there maybe was slightly too much going on hop and fruit wise, but it was still a solid beer that I’m glad I got the chance to try. Thanks, Mike!

Se supone que a las chicas no nos gusta tanto el lupulazo, menos mal que eso es un mito. Estupenda IPA con toda la carga de lúpulo cítrico añadida a los cítricos en sí mismos. Aunque redundante es IPA turbia, aromática, astringente y bien amarga deja satisfecha. Buena retención de espuma, y sabor de lúpulo fresco, resinoso. Amargo largo que queda. barnabeermane (43) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JAN 1, 2013
Botella. Color anaranjado cobre, con espuma blanca persistente. Aroma a caramel malts, citricos, lupulo. En sabor es citrica y lupulada con una buena dosis de malta que la dan un toque dulzon. Muy sabrosa

Pours a clear golden with not much head. Smells like a tropical fruit rainforest. Flavor is a tad bit tame from what I was expecting but it is nicely balanced with a ton of grapefruit and citrus with the malts not letting themselves disappear. Westbrook is yet again releasing solid brews from the great state of South Carolina. Cheers! argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 1, 2012
