Undated 12 oz bottle served in a snifter.

Pours hazy amber, with a modest off-white head.

Aroma: a load of Citra hops yet some bready malts are also apparent.

Flavor: Follows aroma: fruity and herbal, with a substantial hop hit starting towards the finish. Despite a moment of rather high bitterness, this diminishes nicely in the aftertaste. Surprising complexity for a single hop brew.

O: recommended for hop heads.

Their doesn't seem to be any dating on the bottle but I picked up this six pack at a very reputable craft beer seller so i'm hoping it was relatively fresh, or as fresh as Ohio beer can be in Maine.

Color is great, light orange, medium head with great lacing.

So the label talks a big game about the massive amount of citrus and melon scent and taste. Maybe I've lost all sense of smell and taste but i'm not getting much of either. I hoped for Sculpin "like" aroma and i'm not getting it.

That said, this is still a very good IPA. i'd certainly buy this again.
