Appearance: Pours with a big heavy of fluffy white head of about two and a half fingers. Sticky lacing left behind with each sip. The color with a golden yellow with accents of orange. Active carbonation is a touch low.

Smell: Candied sweet sugars and tropical fruits all over the front of this one. The malts certainly take a back seat but come off with a slight nuttiness which plays well with the bright hop profile. Light piney bitterness is picked up on the back end.

Taste: Piney hop bitterness hits right away. A little surprising after the aroma. Earth, grass, and rustic hop notes open up on the body. Some of those brighter tropical fruits pop through on the body but are not a major player. Malts have a darker caramelized sugary flavor with some toffee as well. The finish is lingering wave after wave of bitter pine, really quite unrelenting.

Mouthfeel: Dry and bitter. Interesting combination of earth and sweetness in this brew. Carbonation is a touch bright.

Overall: Really surprised how different the aroma and taste are but yeah, I dig. I would have no hesitation recommending this one for someone looking for a big time hop fix. This feels like a much bigger brew then 6% abv. Good stuff.

The brew is a very cloudy orange amber. There's very little head that disappears quickly.

The aroma is predominately orange zest. I also get some herbal orange aroma and some candied oranges as well that reminds me of an orange gummy. Swirling the glass pushes some more green herbal notes and a bit of pine.

The flavor is full of citrus rind bitterness. The bitterness does linger a bit and becomes more prominent with each drink.

The feel is light to medium which is on par.

Overall this is a nice IPA with loads of Citra hops. The aroma is this brews best aspect, because it's complex and can be pushed forward with a hearty swirl. The flavor is very bitter, which you'd expect from any IPA. However, I think the bitterness totally dominates the taste. I would have liked to taste more of the malt to stand up to the hops. Cheers to CBKA and Spiteful!
