Notes/Commercial Description:
Voraciously hoppy and not overly bitter. The Kind brings enormous aroma and maximum flavor. It's like taking a walk through a pine forest and ending up at a citrus farm. This beer brings joy to the world, one sip at a time.

Had high expectations for this beer, maybe too high and it clouded my review a bit. After reading some stuff about the brewery and this beer, thought it was going to be similar to Green Flash WCIP.

Poured a golden orange color with decent carbs and small head from 22 oz bomber. Outside of a brief burst of citrus out of the bottle while pouring smelled more malty than pine or citrus.
Still tasted malt heavy when drinking it. Creamy and definitely a mellow beer - thought it might be more of a hop bomb.
Would like to try a glass off tap some time and give the beer a second chance.

Poured into a Stone Arrogant Bastard specialty glass. Probably around 20 oz or so.

A - really good head retention. three finger white frothy creamy head. still holding more then two inches in the head after ten min of being poured. hazy light orange, yellow like in color.

S - Smells like plastic or something, really weird... some mild pine mixed with citrus.

T - pretty balanced. mild lingering bitterness...getting a lot of pine...maybe im mistaking that plastic like smell as that. some mild citris here and there...and sweet malt to balance it. decent. nothing to rave about in my opinion. Slightly earthy and soiley. if your into citrus hop bombs do not get this.

M - slightly creamy and medium mouthfeel.

Overall. a decent beer, not great, not bad. average.

Clear light bronze color. Good head and great bubbling.

Citric orange hop aroma with a little bite. Maybe a little toasted cracker malt aroma, but mostly hops.

Sharp, orange and grapefruit zest. Tinny palate from the "voracious" hops. Good bitterness overall, but hard to pcik out much malt flavors. Maybe some Wonderbread crust, thats about it. The finish feels watery and tinny.
