From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped 08:37NH-JUN2012. Sampled on December 8, 2012 so I don't know if the June 2012 date is a bottling date or an expiration date.
The pour is pale copper to orange with the slightest haze and a fuzzy white head.
The aroma is pleasantly hopped with floral notes galore and a slight pale malt or bready ester.
The body is pleasingly medium with a creamy feel on my tongue.
The taste is very much like the aroma with a decent dose of floral hops through and through and a lingering, but modest bitterness at the end. This is a well done American IPA.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of grapefruit, hops. Taste is hoppy, some bitterness, a bit of grapefruit, kind of mild. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a very drinkable and pretty good beer.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.
A: The beer is a light gold color, with a very thin white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains very fruity citrus, piney hops and light caramelized malts.
T: The taste starts out sweet with a strong grapefruit-led citrus sweetness that is quickly followed by a strong but not over-powering hops bitterness. The hops presence is on the thin side for the style but brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly sweet.
M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, it’s a solid beer to drink for a while but there are others in the style I would choose first.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.
So, thanks to Wikipedia, I discovered that shaddock refers to grapefruit. And Soviet missiles. Fair enough. This stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger or so of off-white foam. The nose comprises grapefruit peel, decidedly sweet caramel, and a touch of pine resin. The taste focuses on the pine and the grapefruit (particularly the peel here), with the caramel fading a bit, though still sticking around with a diminished sweetness. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fairly dry finish. Overall, a solid IPA, nothing too major or anything, but one that's generally enjoyable.

Poured into a pint glass
A: Aggressive pour yields 1 finger of tight, just off-white head with good to great retention. Crystal clear brass colored liquid. Nearly perfect.
S: Man Candy - candied pineapple, hint of grapefruit, mango, passion fruit. Slight ginger maybe. Slight boozy ester underneath knocks it down from perfection.
T: Tart and bitter grapefruit peel right up front. Some faint biscuit in the open as well. Slight ester with faint cardboard afterwards in the middle. Very bitter; a bit more balance would be nice. Later sips become balanced. Grapefruit rind is still the dominant flavor. Slight lime is present maybe.
M: Strong bite up front, but it fades into the background later on. Creamy even after a while.
O: Quite enjoyable. I'd order another and buy 6. I'm glad the balance increases with time. Isn't necessarily better than X-114, but it's damn good!
