From the name and smell, I am assuming there are a lot of citra hops. To me this has a very floral, citrus nose that still well rounded with a mix of hop flavor. Golden orange in color with a nice bright white lacy head. Good body, slight malt, lots of good bitter hop flavor, with a strong but quick finish. This is somewhere between a double and standard IPA. Sessionable, but with plenty of flavor and a great hop profile.

Update: I have tried this years release in a bottle. For whatever reason I am liking this beer a lot more this time around. The hop nose is great with a smooth grapefruit, citrus finish. Very similar to Zombie Dust from Three Floyds

22 oz bottle from "Lifesource" in Salem OR $4.29 Pours a typical burnt orange IPA colour but with a great thick,tight,creamy off white head. Fruity/piney juicy hop aromas..pine,lemon zest,pink grapefruit and papaya..delicious. Taste is pretty much the same as the aroma but with a nice light caramel malt backing which holds it together somewhat. Good medium bodied palate..with medium high carbonation,very drinkable. Good IPA..liked it

On tap at Growler Nation the other day.

The beer pours an orange copper color with fairly good head retention and decent lacing. The nose is about what you'd expect in this beer, given the name. However, aside the abundance of orange and grapefruit, there's also a hint of underlyling dank aroma that is intriguing and attractive. The flavor profile pretty much replicates the nose, but with the beer finishing with considerable bitterness. This IPA is West Coast all the way, and so is fairly dry on the finish as well. Still, there's some juicy tropical fruit and citrus on the mid palate that is attractive as well. The finish is long and refreshingly bitter. Drinkability is outstanding, and I love the fact that the abv. is so low (relatively speaking).

While nothing earth shattering, this is still a very enjoyable, easy to appreciate iPA from the folks at Hop Valley. It's a very welcome alternative for those rare occasions when the Alpha Centauri is too much for me.
