Had high expectations for this beer, maybe too high and it clouded my review a bit. After reading some stuff about the brewery and this beer, thought it was going to be similar to Green Flash WCIP.

Poured a golden orange color with decent carbs and small head from 22 oz bomber. Outside of a brief burst of citrus out of the bottle while pouring smelled more malty than pine or citrus.
Still tasted malt heavy when drinking it. Creamy and definitely a mellow beer - thought it might be more of a hop bomb.
Would like to try a glass off tap some time and give the beer a second chance.
