Draft at the brewpub. Bright and clear yellow. Taste of fresh grass, hay, pine. Taste has balanced bitterness, not over the top.

brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 14, 2011
A: The beer pours a clear golden orange color with a finger of white head. S: Smells nice and citrusy with a moderate sweetness to it. Some light tropical fruitiness with some hints of peach. Nice grapefruit and orange notes and a hint of malt sweetness to the beer. T: Plenty of sweet citrus and other fruit flavors. Not terribly bitter, but enough pine notes to keep it from being too sweet. Some bready malt notes and perhaps a hint of caramel. M: Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation. O: Not an overly amazing IPA, but it had a nice flavor and was really easy to drink.

Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy complex hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy smooth bitter flavor with a moderate to heavy bitterswwet finish of medium to long duration. This a very good brew.

Drake (13737) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 6, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA, opened 5/13/11. Pours a clear amber color with a large frothy white head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus hops, mango and caramel. The taste is citrus and tropical hops with a malty finish. Medium bodied. Decent balance but a little anemic nonetheless.

"maybe i’m missing something here, but i saw nothing to make me think this is a 90th percentile beer. avg ipa with all the great ones out there. some bitter orange and pine on the nose, well balanced with a little sweet malt in the flavor. nothing wrong with it, but nothing stands out either. surprising given how much i’ve liked citra hops. i may try again for the price, though."
