I had a pint of this at the recent Lucid hosted AHA rally. I'll be the first one to admit that I didn't take good notes on this one since I was socializing and having a great time, but thought I would still give my impressions here for completeness.

Aroma: Powerful citrus and some tropical fruit aroma wafting off of this. I could actually smell it before it was handed to me! Some sweetness from malt present as well (once I got it closer to my nose.)

Appearance: Deep gold to nearly orange in color with excellent clarity. Head was off white, and faded fairly fast.

Flavor: As expected from the aroma, I got strong citrus (orange and a hint of lemon) in the initial flavor. I got a fair amount of sweet after the hop punch. As with many of the Lucid beers I found the finish to be somewhat astringent and difficult to get over.

Overall: A good double IPA but not one of my favorites. The astringent end ruins it for me, but this is still a strong beer from Lucid. I'd like to try it again under more controlled circumstances and see if my thoughts vary.
