A - Hazed gold, white head has good retention and lacing.

S - Tropical fruit hops in up front, followed by big, dank pine notes.

T - Goes downhill fast. The hop content really takes on a cat pee soaked carpet taste, and dominates anything else that may be there. Hints of pine come through, but once you get that cat pee taste in your mouth, it doesn't leave.

M - Medium to light body, over carbed a little, spritzer-like feel. Moderate bitterness grows through the drink.

O - Ugh, couldn't get past the cat piss. Won't be seeking out these guys anytime soon.

Served on tap at Decicco's Brewster. Into a tall tulip glass.

A - Beautiful golden honey colored hue. Head is pure white and pillowy. Nice looking IPA.

S - Whoa, this is different. Very tropical/fruity notes to it. Very slight notes of onion/earthiness. Definitely a guava note in there.

T - Large fruity hops, with a great malt backbone. The oniony characteristics still exist, but they just work. It's not really an onion note, more like a dankness to the hop used (citra). Guava persists in the taste as well. Go taste some guava juice and you'll remember it from this beer.

M - Very smooth and creamy. Carbonated very well, and is extremely easy-drinking.

O - My first Citra-hopped beer and it was pretty damn good. I'm surprised nobody else has found this around, as citra hops are one of the "next-big-things". If you see it, and you're a fan of tropical/dank hop IPA's give it a shot.
