This took silver at the 2013 UNYHA (Upstate New York) Homebrew Competition
Aroma: Predominantly Citra, mango/tropical notes that trails off with some dank piney resin from the Chinook. If this was all I could smell for the rest of my life, I would be a happy man.
Appearance: Light copper or gold. Cleared out really with the Whirlfloc. Laces really nicely and has about a 2 finger head if poured vigorously.
Taste: Slight bite up front, although very smooth. The late additions help round out the hop flavors without being too aggressive. Hop heads and haters alike have tried this and complimented it. Nice resinous tingle on the tongue. Body is light and crisp with a hint of residual sweetness from the Munich and crystal to back things up. Remains very light and drinkable though.
Will be brewing repeatedly... house IPA I believe.
