Thanks to Florida9 for sharing this growler!

Appearance is a brilliant clear gold with bright white head and decent lace. Nose is full of c-hops with heavy bright citrus notes along with some pine sap, lemon, syrup, and grass. The taste features quite the malt back bone with light molasses, rich caramel, and a moderate sweetness present before the hops overtake the flavor. Tropical fruits and grapefruit have an interplay between each other on the tail end. The body is medium with appropriate carbonation. Overall, this is a damn tasty IPA. Not sure I agree with the caliber of its average rating, but good nonetheless.

Served in a stemless snifter.

Some reggae-backed white trash crimes spring to mind... Anyway, this stuff pours a lightly hazy gold topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises leek, Sorachi-style lemon zest, and light straw. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a melange of bitter grass and other greenery. Supposedly others got some pleasant citrus out of this, but I was apparently not so fortunate. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda dry finish. Overall, I just didn't get around to actually enjoying this beer. For me, the hops focused on onions and funky lemons with a biting bitterness behind them, and that combination is just not for me.
