A; The beer is hazy amber orange in color. It poured with a short off white head. That died down and left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Moderate to string aromas of fresh hops stand out-citrusy hops seem to stand out in particular.
T: There are flavors of citrus hops along with some hints of pine resin and a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. No crispness is detectable.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and packs in lots of fresh hop flavors.

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.

22oz brown bomber

Hazed amber, good frothing. Obvious smell of Citra hops, a bit catty with loads of freshly smashed citrus fruit, hint of alcohol and a bit biscuity. Grainy maltiness, crisp and a little slick. A whole lot of hop oil and mild resin flavor. Juicy with a slight catty flavor, bitterness is not strong but the flavor is. Hint of alcohol, wild flower and faint of tropical fruit. Finish very hoppy.

Fresh and extremely hoppy, a great example if you are looking to see what Citra hops taste like. Fun to quaff back.

Dark gold and lightly hazed with a small cream colored head. Modest retention and some patchy lace clinging to the glass. Lovely aroma of Citra hops, fruity and citrusy with faintly resinous pine notes and mild caramel malt.

Decent flavor that follows the nose pretty closely but seems a little thin in comparison. Again a good deal of citrus and pine, lightly earthy notes, and moderate caramel sweetness. Average bitterness and semidry finish.

Medium body and carbonation. Good smoothness, pretty solid overall.

Received as an extra in a trade. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice crystal clear copper hue with a good two finger creamy white head that slumped down to a food one finger blanket with lots of sticky side lacing. Quite nice.

S - Some malty sweetness on the nose here followed by some nice light hops. Not nearly as green as I would like to see but the hops are atleast present.

T - Taste is a bit, flat. Not nearly as hoppy as I would expect or wish for an IPA to be. This seems for me to be the trend with beers that claim to be "green" or "sticky" in the title; they simply never deliver. Alot more malts than in the nose with some faint almost bubblegum hop notes. An incredibly light bitter finish rounds things out.

M - Mouthfeel is nice and almost sharp. Keeps things very crisp and refreshing. Nice.

O - Overall, this was a good IPA. Not sure how old it is, perhaps thats why the taste just didn't cut it for me. The appearance and mouthfeel is very nice, but the taste and aroma just doesnt cut it for me. Still, not too shabby.
