3.48/5 rDev -11.2%
Poured into a pint glass out of a 22oz bomber.
Pours a slightly hazy deep copper with barely a tiny head. Decent lacing though so I give it a couple points for that.
The aroma on this is just out of this world. Tons of citrus in the way of orange and mango with a little bit of pine thrown in. No malt is really detectable but that is ok with this kind of hop aroma!
The flavor is where things go south. The hops are much more muted than I was hoping. Orange and a little pine is still there but in small quantities. There is a sweet orange candy base but no bread or caramel. Mouthfeel is full and smooth and quite sticky to the point of being cloying.
Overall, I'm really struggling to drink this. It is overly sweet, almost syrupy, without a ton of hop flavor. I am really disappointed by this brew.

This was a Mystery Beer challenge growler fill from the Northbridge Pig. Took a lot of notes, but didn't guess this brew -
A: Poured into a snifter - slightly hazy copper-orange... tea-like; thin, creamy white head; not much retention or lace... kinda fizzy.
S: Toasted malt; orange peel / light citrus; sorghum; bready.
T: Follows nose; bread crust malt; orange peel / rind; spicy hops on end.
M: Medium body; high carbonation; has an incomplete feel; zingy.
O: Fairly drinkable, although not the tastiest brew. Upon finding out it was an IPA, I was surprised... I was leaning towards a pale ale (and something with a lower abv).
*from notes (3/1/13)

3.6/5 rDev -8.2%
A: copper/marmalade body, trace white head, a little lacing
S: grapefruit, pine, earthy, mild spices
T: same as nose, mild bitter long finish
M: med body, solid oily mouth
O: Hoppy nearly sessionable, love this brewery,
but midly disappointed here. Maybe my fault
for loving Terrapin. Would get again and recommend
but not a must.
RATHER GOOD, NOT MUST HAVE!

Pours a deep golden color with a slight head. Slight lacing, resiny looking.
Smell is a little muted for the style. That citrus presence is there but not as assertive as i'd like.
Taste is a bit sweet up front, followed by a bit of a nice citrusy finish that lingers for a while. Basically the back end tastes like citra.
Mouthfeel is nice, slick and pretty smooth, carbonation seems right for style.
Overall this is a pleasant enough beer, and if you are looking for a citra fix (which I was) then this will work. Ultimately though it feels like a less intense version of Zombie Dust (not that that has to be a bad thing).

PIcked up a bomber at Tasty Beverage Co. in Raleigh, NC.
Pours a nice amber with deep orange hues. About a finger of tan/off-white head that receded quickly to a patchy film on the top of the beer.
The smell was extremely fresh. Overwhelming flowery and citrus hop notes. Wow, I love the nose of this beer! A slight breadiness comes through as the beer warms.
An acidic hop bite right off the bat. It gives way to a strong malty backbone. A slightly resinous lingering bitterness at the back end of the sip. The end of the sip is a nice citrusy citra flavor.
Medium bodied with a toned down carbonation build from the wet hopping. Very slightly oily, but not nearly as much as I was expecting.
To me this beer is worth the purchase just to sit there and smell it.

Pours deep clear orange with a small soapy head. Aroma is breathtaking and one of the best I have smelled on a pale. Deep pine hops, sweet grapefruit, floral, and even a bit of candy caramel smell. Flavor is very sweet and candy like. Not as much bitterness as i was hoping for. No bottle date, so maybe I got it late in the year? Still has the hop flavor though. Candy sweet grapefruit with only a hint of pine. Floral flavor. Thick and syrupy mouthfeel for a 6.6% here. Pretty flat. Good beer, but can't say I wasn't hoping for more bitterness and refreshment. The aroma is there, most of the flavors are there, but something seems slightly off. It is so close to being right. Just falls short of my benchmarks in the fresh/wet syle (Founders Harvest & GD Fresh Hop). Bonus points for the name of this one though.

Single finger head with excellent lacing on a slightly hazy amber orange body. nice hop mix in the aroma with floral, earthy and pine present. the flavor is mildly bitter with more of a APA degree of hops which are mostly earthy, slightly metallic and floral. mouthfeel of medium body and moderate carbonation. Overall the hop character is a bit simple and non-descript and plain. the frshness of the hops is definitly there I just was wanting something a little more dynamic and complex.
