Appearance: pours a straw color with hues of orange coming through as well. a 2 finger foamy white head forms and has good retention. huge amounts of haze and cloudiness to it. completely opaque.

Smell: huge amounts of fruitiness. ranging from passionfruit to grapefruit and orange. quite a bit of resinous bitterness too. slight grainy/malty sweetness.

Taste: opens up with juicy and fruity notes. passionfruit, mango and citrus. after the juicy start things become a bit more resinous and almost spicy to piney. after all the hops a very slight bready malt comes through. no crystal-like sweetness, just a light sweetness to balance all the hops.

Mouthfeel: lighter and refreshing. lingering bitter and hop resin. strong drinkability.

Overall: clearly an extremely well done IPA. amazing range of taste from the Citra, I wouldn't have guessed that this was a single hop. Easily a top tier IPA but there are others out there that I would prefer to this and are easier to get.

Drank from a 10 day old growler picked up on a trade in CT this past weekend (Thanks Brian!). This is a really great IPA. Amazing fruity/ floral aroma and wonderfully balanced, fruity, hoppy taste. I think it just loses a little (just a tad) on the finish. Very wonderful beer, but maybe not quite worth it for how hard it is to obain. I actually like Gandhi Bot a little better. (note, I have been drinking Dinner and Treehouse Haze the past few days, so my palette has some major competition). Definitely worth drinking if you can get it and maybe the best 6.2% abv IPA I have had.

A: cloudy - unfiltered; golden yellow - SRM 7-8: 1 finger ivory head that receded to a thin cap; nice lacing;

S: pine and tropical fruit; no malt characteristics - this is all about the hops;

T: tropical fruit up front; pine comes in mid-palate, along with a healthy dose of bitterness; that combination of tropical fruit, pine, and bitterness lasts though the finish;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: this is about as close to the perfect IPA as I've ever had;
