Had as part of their tasters rack at the brewpub.

Appearance: Pours a clear copper color.

Smell: This was surprising. Almost no hops in the aroma. A lot of caramel malt, but no hops to speak of.

Taste: Ah, there they are. There are the hops. This is a classic example of a hop bomb. There were some complex flavors here, but they were hard to pick out.

Mouthfeel: Lightly carbonated, very dry at the end.

They stated on the menu, almost bragging, that they used 20 lbs of hops for this beer. Clearly too much. Expecially with the aroma, it really sneaks up on a guy. An okay IPA, but I don't think I will order a full pint.

had this on tap at the brewpub, looked great.

Whoa, citrus in the nose like crazy! The smell is incredibly in your face with citrus. It is slightly overpowering.

Lots of floral hops on the first sip, with not enough of a malt backbone to support all of those ibus. I also would have liked a thicker body and mouthfeel as well, as it was rather dry - probably just my personal taste with that one though.
