Sent a crowler by my brother for Christmas. Cloudy, dark orange, very little in the way of foam or lacing, lots of sediment at the end of the crowler. Dank, citrusy notes on the nose. Taste is a balance of mildly bitter and citrusy hops. Zesty and dank, gentle alcohol presence. Pretty good.

Great IPA. Nice intense citra hops, and a solid body and flavor. 7-7.5% abv is the sweet spot for me, so this was perfect. Little bit of malty goodness in there too.

On tap at The Marco Island Brewery in Fl.

Pours a hazy golden color with white head. Citrus hops, pine, resin, grapefruit and lemon; extremely bitter.

Overall smells good but very bitter taste; bit too much for me.

Pours a brilliant sun golden orange with a touch of haze and a finger of fluffy off-white foam.

The citra hops explode out of the glass lending juicy aromas of orange, pineapple, grapefruit, and mango.

The citra hop bill takes front stage with an explosion of juicy citrusy and tropical fruit flavors, but a little one sided as I'm not getting much from the malt bill.

Medium-bodied, medium-high carbonation, juicy, citrusy, tropical, finishes bitter and dry from a lackluster malt bill.

Overall, this is factually an extremely pleasant beer to look at and the citra hops provide a marvelous aroma, but the overall balance in flavor leans towards bitter citrus which isn't helped by the lack of sweetness from the malt bill. This is certainly a fantastic beer, but IMO needs more balance.
