This is a stellar beer. Crisp, hippy, refreshing. Citrus notes are outstanding. Wish this was more then a seasonal brew

Poured bottle dated 6/25/14 into Lost Abbey Teku

A-Pours a clear light copper color with a two finger white head. Great lacing.

S-Great aromas of pine, resin, citrus and some dank.

T-The taste has tropical fruit, resin, citrus and hops. There is some malt and dankness as well.

M-Mouthfeel is well balance and great carbonation.

O-Overall I was quite impressed how this beer was juicy and had the right amount of dry bite. I would get this one again.

Thanks to analogchainsaw for knocking off this long-time want in a recent trade. Just saw a bottle in a San Diego museum, er, beer store, too. Wouldn’t have bought it though. Looked like the place still had every bottle of beer it had ever purchased. 22 oz. bottle split with my wife.

Pour is California orange with a tight collar of carbonation. One of the rare beers that lives up to the advertising, the nose on this is a mosh pit of sweet fruit, with more orange than anything else.

Aroma Coma mixes sweet & bitter in close to equal measure, but avoids the dreaded “balanced IPA” label. Mango (like I just had in my homemade scallops & rice), sweet orange, & citrus open. The mid-palate flowers with a sharp edged bitterness, & just the faintest edge of earth-strewn dankness. Finish is north country pine run down by a long, lingering shot of bitter hops. Half a bomber is sufficient, but it’s possible I could mop up more.

Interesting beer that, like many others, doesn’t live up to the rowdy nose. Good beer.

We thought it was delicious. Enjoyed it with some small bites of a nice sharp cheddar. Outstanding finish, not sweet. The citrus and pine notes were not overdone; and at 6.75 ABV, although too high to be a session beer, it was still considerably more quaffable over the long haul than some popular 8s. Quite good.
