Notes/Commercial Description:
This mouthwateringly delicious IPA gets its flavor from a heavy helping of Citra and Mosaic hops. Don't worry, no fruit was harmed in the making of this beer.

Best by 6/26/14 should be pretty fresh. Thanks to billquirk (reddit) for this one.

Pours a decent creamy almost 1 finger head that fades at a med to slower pace, nice wispy lacing, very hazy reddish orange color.

Nose is loaded With grapefruit fresh grapefruit juice and pith, little pine grapefruit flesh too, little tangerine and orange flesh as well, with a little candy sweet copper caramel malt base. Hint of fruity bubblegum. If it weren't for the sweeter caramel malts this would be great.

Taste starts a bit sweet as well, candy malts and caramel copper malts kick in right away, fair sweetness overall. Then after a bit, the hops finally kick in little grapefruit pith and flesh, plenty more orange juice and rind, little Clementine and creamy orange juice, little creamscicle, etc. And a weird citrus like flavor, almost Buddha's hand like. Finish is still a bit sticky sweet, little more sweet malt, candied orange peel note, some citrus, orange rind, hint of grapefruit pith lingering.

Mouth is med bod, decent carb.

Overall a bit of a let down. Nice hop profile that would have been a lot better if not for the sweet candy and caramel malts that kinda get in the way. The lingering rind and pith bitterness doesn't mix well with the sweetness and candy either.

A: Pours a darker red than most IPA's. A two finger beige head forms with good retention and lace.
S: Pine resin up front, followed by a grapefruit, and orange rind. Juicy in the nose. Caramel and biscuit malts that gives a nice balance. A light lingering bitterness. Enjoyable.
T: Like the nose, but more juicy. Grapefruit, orange, lemon, and lightly resinous. Caramel sweetness, an biscuit malts for a great balance. A bit minty as well. There is a bitterness that lingers, but far from over barring.
M/D: A medium body and good carbonation. Crisp and ultra smooth at the same time. Really enjoyable to drink. I need to get some six packs.

Like usual from this brewery, a great beer. Enjoyable, well balanced, but with plenty of hop character for all the hop heads. Highly recommended.

Pours a light copper hue with a fluffy two finger ever present head and lacing everywhere quite the looker,the smell is strong pineapple,tropical salad and freshly torn orange leaves,the feel is full bodied with near perfect moderate carbonation and has tastes of strong citrus,tropical fruit salad,broken up with some sweet caramel malts and finished with a soft pine bitterness and overall yeah quite a nice IPA that I'd drink again cheers.

Pours a gold with dashes of red. Nice creamy looking white head.

Nose has a nice citrus burst- really quite deep and pleasant. There's also hints of boiled candy, yoghurt, and a kind of banana flavour. I initially thought the hop profile had hints of Sierra Nevada but I would say this one has more depth to it.

Taste is red malts and more hop profile- definitely reminds me of a Sierra Nevada beer a bit more here, perhaps one of their hoppy red ales. There is a hint of ethanol intermittently. Finishes a little bitter. I'm still getting that curious banana flavour here.

Mouthfeel is quite silky- about average carbonation. Definitely some potent bitterness here, another quality it shares with Sierra Nevada.

For a beer exported to Australia at decent prices and which probably doesn't have the benefit of great freshness it's a nice offering. Bitterness is a tad cloying though.

A-Darker than most IPA...a deep burnt orange color with light white head

S-Citrus...oranges, tangerines, lemons, limes

T-Nice citrus flavor from the hops but not bursting with hop flavor by any means. Perhaps the healthy dose of caramel like malt backing keeps it in check.

M-Medium bodied...light orange peal bitterness on the finish.

O-I think this is a relatively fresh bottle but I can't find a date on it for the life of me. It seems like I should be getting more of a pure hop aroma and flavor than I am so I wonder a little on the date but as it drinks tonight it is a balanced, flavorful easy drinking iPA that is not over the top in any aspect.

Short but sweet review. This beer is definitely the closest thing I've been able to find to Heady Topper. Really citrus-y and not too dry. A lot of taste from the front of the tongue to the back. i feel like the label does a great job of describing this beer. Freshly squeezed citrus taste. Great beer!
