look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a hazy brassy golden yellow in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some apricot + orange highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy light beige head that very slowly reduces to a very thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of slightly sweet citrus/grapefruit and citrus/orange over the top of a light aroma of biscuit malts.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of bready, caramel, and biscuit malts with a light amount of honey-like sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of citrus/grapefruit and citrus/orange hops with just a hint of herbal hops. Moderate amounts of bitterness which fades fairly quickly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp upfront with a hint of dryness in the finish.

O: Though not indicated by the ABV, this beer drinks more like a DIPA than an IPA with the higher levels of sweetness and bitterness present. Enjoyable.

Thanks to Bradaplast for sending this one! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Cigar City pint glass.

A: Dark gold and extremely hazy. Forms a finger's worth of dense white head with great retention over quite a bit of small bubble visible carbonation.

S: Citrus (peeled oranges), tropical fruits, and bready malts. A nice nose, but not as bit of an aroma as I expected for a Citra-forward beer.

T: Citrus rind, grapefruit, some tropical fruit (mostly mango), and chewy bready malts with a touch of caramel character. There's a good punch of bitterness, and some leftover resin sap on grapefruit rind in the hang. Not quite the big fruity hop profile I was hoping for. Subjectively, this might taste a bit old; unfortunately, I see no dating on the bottle.

M: Medium to slightly heavy body, good carbonation sensation, and an average alcohol presence.

O: Not my favorite, but drinkable. I'm curious as to how old this bottle is - I received it very recently in a trade (and I believe he thought it was fresh)…I would certainly be willing to give another go-round with a (known) very fresh bottle. As it is though, edges towards more mediocre than I'd hoped.
