From a just released bottle.

This one was a major let down. Though billed as a fresh, wet hopped IPA, I got zero hops on this one. Wish I tried it on tap before throwing down $10. I generally like Bluejacket's IPAs, but this was more like a basic, boring English ale. Drain pour--not worth the space in my liver.

On draft, pours a cloudy bright orange with a thin wispy head.

The nose is citra hops alright, but very muted. I get a little tangerine, light fruity citrus, but the nose is not very strong.

The flavor is citrus rinds, orange, a little grass and hay, more rustic than a typical wet hop. That isn't bad, but I wish the citrus notes dominated even more.

It has a clean, refreshing finish. Not great, but not bad.
