Served on tap at Decicco's Brewster. Into a tall tulip glass.

A - Beautiful golden honey colored hue. Head is pure white and pillowy. Nice looking IPA.

S - Whoa, this is different. Very tropical/fruity notes to it. Very slight notes of onion/earthiness. Definitely a guava note in there.

T - Large fruity hops, with a great malt backbone. The oniony characteristics still exist, but they just work. It's not really an onion note, more like a dankness to the hop used (citra). Guava persists in the taste as well. Go taste some guava juice and you'll remember it from this beer.

M - Very smooth and creamy. Carbonated very well, and is extremely easy-drinking.

O - My first Citra-hopped beer and it was pretty damn good. I'm surprised nobody else has found this around, as citra hops are one of the "next-big-things". If you see it, and you're a fan of tropical/dank hop IPA's give it a shot.

A-Pours a cloudy orange color. ACBF sample glass restricts my judgments on head and lacing.

S-Aromtatic whiffs of juicy citrus and vegetal grassiness. Orange rind, some tropical guava and grass. A wet, lightly toasty backbone complements the ripe hoppiness.

T-More of the same here. The tropical combination of juicy oranges and grapefruits are met with secondary notes of leafy hops as well as some mango perhaps. Sweetness works its way into the scene despite being hop-forward through and through. Finishes with a cutting, grassy bitterness.

M-Very drinkable with a juicy, dry feel. Subtle carbonation. Dry and moderately bitter.

O/D-I think this is an underrated brew. Lots of ripe, flavors and the malt brings some legit balance as well. A very solid single hop IPA.

Tap at Armsby Abbey

Nice creamy 1 finger head fades pretty slowly with nice notched lacing after the sips, super murky orange-carrot juice color.

Nose fresh citra hops, tropical fruit, clementine, tangerine, citrus juice, light musty passion fruit, guava, etc. with hints of malt base.

Taste starts with juicy hops again, fresh citra, starting with light resinous musty hops and hint of passion fruit, light tropical fruits of guava, etc, and plenty of citrus with tangerine, light orange zest, juice, etc. Malts bring a light sweet base that help prop up the fairly heavy bitterness, and some booze that cuts through. It gets fairly heavy and wants to get astringent but the malts hold it back a bit. Finish is drier with a spicy chewing on a hop pellet taste, with plenty of lingering orange zest, musty wet hop resin, and musty tropical fruit, with a hint of sticky malt residue.

Mouth is med to a bit heavier bodied, decent carb.

Overall pretty good, one of the few I've had that somewhat represents the hop fairly well I think, although they may have gone a bit overboard on the bittering portion of the hops as it starts to get astringent and it's quite bitter. Otherwise decent balance and fairly tasty, nice nose, and I really wish they concentrated more of the hops towards the back end of the boil and less on the front.
