Poured fro a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a vibrant, slightly hazed, caramel coloring with a thin, filmy, clingy, bright white surface coat of head. Aromas of roasted caramel, tangy sweet mango, passion fruit, and pineapple, and resiny, floral hops. Smells like a sweet, tangy explosion. Flavors of tangy sweet tropical fruits initially, with a blending of mango and pineapple most apparent. Roasted undertone, with a hoppy blend of pepper and oregano cleaning things up a bit. Malty, with a robust blast from every aspect on the palate. No pulled punches in this brew. I would love to see what this beer would be like fresh-hopped. The aftertaste is tangy sweet and smooth, with a slick, smooth, clean finish. The palate becomes very balanced with rich sweetness and light, citrus tart at the end of the brew. Great beer, very easy to drink.

A friend sent this 22oz from SoCal.
Poured in a St Bernardus chalice.
Small brown head ... some lace.
Aroma of citrus hops and herbal spice.
Flavors of citrusy hops, white pepper, burnt malts, funky tropical fruit rind, grapefruit rind. Flavorful and bold in the hops but many flavors that are not as inviting, such as astringency and funky water flavors.

I bought 2 cases @ the brewery in 2010 drunk them slowly and they were fantastic and then i open one today 5-29-13 and it totally kick ass, no loss of carbonation just mellow. I am a brewer and I thought was excellent. the hops were perfect with a really good mouth feel. nice color,bouquet, and maltiness. damn fine beer!!!

Clear copper. creamy light beige head. oily cap. Great sticky sheets of lace.

Big resinous grapefruit and citrus. Spicy floral and pine. some toastiness and caramel.

Grapefruit and resin. Spicy floral and citrus. Pine. Light sweet caramel biscuit backing. Big resin bitterness.

Sticky, drying medium body with mellow carbonation. Hop bite astringency.

Very drinkable and tasty hop forward brew. Love the C's. Get some my fellow hopheads.

Pours a mild amber with a one-finger head into my glass. Average color for the style. I always like the brighter ones.

A lot of pine hop essence upfront in the nose. Not much to go by otherwise. The ABV is the first sign that this may not actually be an Imperial IPA.

The taste reflects the aroma. There is more of a focus on pine than citrus with the hop selection.

Bitterness with biscuity bread make up the mouthfeel. Wow. The alcohol is still quite strong, despite the lack of ABV.

Hopheads should definitely check this out.
