Aroma is pine and very bitter/grassy hops. The flavor is citrus, grapefruit, malts, a hint of nuttiness and really grassy/bitter hops in the finish. IPAs are meant to be bitter, this one is.

This was good. Had it on draft (snifter - style), and everything was looking up. Gorgeous look and nice clean aromas... took a little funny turn on the taste, with the funny wet cardboard note going on... otherwise everything was in place. Prefer White Rajah when it comes to OH IPAs!

Tap at the BORIS Van Wink Release. Pour is very hazed deep amber with an off white head. Nose is huge citrus blast, orange peel and hints of grapefruit with a small touch of doughy malt underneath. Taste follows suit on hops, huge hop explosion. Tons if juicy orange citrus with some grapefruit notes and bitterness. Notes of dough malt and some cereal grains. Lighter body with nice carbonation and a pillowy feel. Bitterness lingers through the finish.

22oz bottle poured into snifter

A: very little head a light amber color slightly hazy

S: this beers smells toffee and like cantaloupe and overripe fruit

T: Cantaloupe cantaloupe cantaloupe very melon tasting and very different slightly bitter on the finish do not know how old this beer is but it's very melon tasting

M: medium feel

O: I was looking for a more citrus tropical fruit explosion so I'm a little blind sided by it being pure melon. That being said it's pretty damn good, I didn't know though this was retired but it's worth looking for if they still brew it.
