Oh yeah! Just filled at the brewery about 2 hours ago... it's fantastic, can't wait to down this growler!
Gently pouring from the growler that's filled all the way to the tippety top, forms a film of liquid gold streaming between the sides of the glass and the main spout of liquid, when it finishes pouring a big frothy 1.5 finger head is left in the aftermath (excuse my pun), that sticks around for a while and leaves lots of soapy lacing like head exploded in the glass. The beer itself is semi hazy, with a nice golden light streaming through the reddish orange peach honey colored beer.
Nose is phenomenal! the bursting bright bodacious tropical fruits fill my nostrils and dance in the receptors, tangerine, light citrusy clementine, a bit of grapefruit and a little passion fruit all waft out in a big tropical fruit blend. A light wave of resin and floral hops come out next with just a bit of a malty base to prop it up. The more I nose, the more the huge wafts of pure grapefruit come out, it's like breaking the little juice packets on a fresh grapefruit. After a while I could practically confuse this for grapefruit juice.
My taste buds await their fate as they prepare for the awesomeness coming out of the glass. First wave of the beer actually brings a light sweet malty base that paves the way for the hops following quickly after. It doesn't take long for fresh grapefruit to rush in. Citrus and tropical fruit just entwine their juiciness with each cell of my tongue and saturate the deliciousness part of my tongue. Between waves of fresh squeezed grapefruit comes light tangerine, passion fruit, papaya, mango, tropical fruit you name it! Hint of a fresh hop resin and pure Citra awesomeness, maybe a little Simcoe, Summit, or Galaxy... it has those delicious profiles. Light bitter rind flavor coming from the mountain of grapefuit, some bitterness but not very bitter initially. I could drink gallons of this without feeling it. Finish is drier but juicy, again tons of grapefruit juice, fresh squeezed just lingering for a long time, like it doesn't want to part with my tongue and my taste buds sure don't want to part with it! A light bitter rind flavor lingering with more tropical fruit flavors, and a little mango and hint resin.
Mouth is med bodied, soft and fluffy at the same time with nice carb, and just a hint of hop oil resin.
Overall, heeelll yeah! Near perfect aroma, super delicious, very drinkable, etc. It's like a lesser boozy, lesser bitter, and lesser resinous version of most of the big Citra Hill farmstead beers, especially SS4 coming to mind, except I only have to drive a few minutes rather than few hours to get it! I can't wait until they expand and I can get a lot more of this growler of pure delicious zen!

750ml growler filled 8/1/2014, poured into a Lawson's snifter 8/10/2014.
A- Hazy deep orange body, one finger white head with the right amount of retention and rings of lacing. Great lookin' beer.
S- Juicy citrus, grapefruit and sweet bready pale malt. I don't know how this smells so good, but it does. Again this is really dang juicy. I understand where the name comes from now.
F- Somehow, this beer tastes better than it smells. Citrus, oranges, grapefruits, mango, passion fruit, bread and caramel with more oranges and a slightly grassy citrus finish. Really juicy but balanced. Fantastic stuff.
M- Medium bodied, smooth and creamy with a nice peppy carbonation. Phenomenal and very drinkable. Juicy, citrus zesty finish that is bitter but just the right amount of bitter grassiness to keep it interesting without interfering with drinkability.
O- Fantastic IPA. This one is worth its weight in gold... and more. Probably the most enjoyable single IPA I've had the chance to drink. I will have to obtain more of these on a regular basis!
