Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
Packed full of hop flavor with a lighter malt body, this American IPA showcases Citra, Centennial and Chinook hops. Citrus, Grapefruit and Passionfruit dominate the nose and tongue in this hop bomb. Brewed on a limited basis because of short supply of it's namesake hops.

Pours into an impy nonic a dull peach-like color with a full one finger white head atop.Wow a big blast of grapefruit and pine in the nose wich is refreshing,a big hop driven "standard" IPA.A rush of sharp grapefruit and citric hops hits ya on the palate upfront,alot of grapefruit going on here, some sugary sweetness and a mild spicy note from the Chinooks in the finish,the hops are the main attraction here,Iam not even writing anything about the malt profile.This beer is vastly underrated in my opinon,this is one of the better hop profiled beers if not the best in this state,in my opinion...

Color is auburn, dusty and hazy looking with a 3/4" white head of both large and small bubbles. Aroma is upfront grassy citrus - kind of homebrewy/yeasty. Sweet floral, dank leaves, and fruit of tropical and citrus variety. Taste is brisk, dry, nicely bitter and flavorful. Fruity w/peach and tropical hints of mango and candied pineapple. Grassy and slightly earthy in flavor as well. Mouthfeel is slick-smooth, dry, and appropriately carbonated. Overall not bad. Nicely hopped... It gets better as you get into it, but could also use some refining.

Drinking local on this rainy day. Nice and hoppy. Great citrus. Mild bitterness. Recommended! Bottled 10/8

Murky chestnut sort of color with a beautifully thick, white head. Yeasty aromas at first, sort of homebrew-like, opening up over time to reveal grass, pungent citrus, peach, mango, and passion fruit. Hoppy flavor, more old-school feeling, with spicy pine, tea, lemon, grapefruit, lime, and not much malt. Not overwhelmingly hoppy, just pleasant so. Green, solidly bitter, some trailing spiciness, not super fruity. Medium bodied, sporting a little creaminess. Not bad. Citra seems to be doing the least out of the three "Cs" used here.

A: Pours a lightly hazy golden apricot in color with some moderate amounts of active visible carbonation slowly rising from the bottom of the glass and just a touch of orange highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy light beige head that reduces to a medium sized patch of large sudsy bubbles and a mottled very thin film covering the majority of the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass.

S: Slightly heavier than moderate aromas of citrus/grapefruit, citrus/orange, tropical/passionfruit, and pine hops over light caramel malts.

T: Upfront there is a light flavor of grainy and caramel malts with a light to moderate amount of sugary sweetness. That is followed by slightly heavier than moderate flavors of hops - citrus/grapefruit, citrus/orange, tropical/passionfruit, and just a touch of pine.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation.

O: Very enjoyable and underrated - I wish I came across this beer more often because I found it to be very easy to drink, almost sessionable with great flavors and aromas. This might be a beer that makes it into my fridge quite often this spring/summer.
