I am actually going to say something nice about an IPA... and I despise 'hop bombs'.
Had on tap from a pint glass. Golden fizzy with a delicate white head, I was shocked by the complexity of the aroma. Piney, citrusy. The taste was amazing. Wonderful depth of flavors ... citrus, cedar, hoppy, but ballanced. Feel was light, crisp...

Pours a slightly cloudy medium yellow with significant head.
Smell is Citra hops all the way.
Taste is a surprisingly sweet malt forward followed by pear and lemon citrus.

The look and feel of this one left me wanting nothing.

Poured into IPA glass. The color is a hazy golden amber with a fluffy, two finger white head and extensive lacing that did not dissipate. The smell features the usual grapefruit, pine, and hops but with a fair amount of malty sweetness, as well. Very dank and bitter; I'm not tasting any of the sweetness I smelled. It's very dry. I'm really missing the citrus. It also finishes quite sour. This is a very one dimensional IPA that could really use some citrus and maybe a hint of sweetness.

Too Hoppy for me. Somewhere between Sam Adams Rebel and Sierra Nevada Torpedo. Very heady. Not for me.

First pour into a short tulip was very clear and golden colored, much more so than most IPAs I've encountered. Second pour had loads of chunks and looked like someone put out their cigarette in my drink. Not very appetizing at all. Sticky in the back of the tongue and overall a difficult beer to drink.

Not very hoppy and not at all complex.. Maybe some apricots, grass, and candy sugar on the nose if I imagine real deep. No citrus as was expected. Smells more like alcoholic cough syrup than beer.

Taste is pretty bad. Like burned sawdust and alcohol. By far the worst beer I've had in quite some time.

It's okay. Nothing more than that, though.

Evil Genius Beer Company
Stacey's Mom Citra India Pale Ale
7.5% ABV. - 85 IBU's

Nose: Apricots, bread, grass, citrus, spice
Look: Orangish yellow, cloudy, off white head, a ton of lacing on glass.
Palate: Apricots, citrus, mild grapefruit, citra hops, slight pine, bitter dry grape fruity finish
moulth feel: medium body, alcohol is hidden well. The pineyness that resides in most IPA's, or APA's is not as strong here.
So, if you dislike the piney hops and want a beer that is more mellow in that regard, this one is a perfect fit.
Overall: I bought a 12 pack of this at my Duffy's beer distro. Some ladies from the Guinness company were there and they gave me a taste of a new beer and a Guinness glass that they engraved my name on. This was for free!!! I lucked out there. Anyways, there is no date on the box. Ughghhg, no date! Anyways, I had a guess that this was brewed unfiltered, or with some wheat malts because a. it is cloudy and b. the moulth and taste sort of point me in that direction. From what I have read that must not be the case. I am very surprised that they list this beer at 85 IBU's. That seems well over where this beer sits. I would rate it at maybe 50 maybe. Usually 85 is for extremely hoppy beers, or very bitter stouts.

String citrus hops and clean finish. Good beer to relax with.
