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
