COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This single hop ale showcases the Citra hop. Named for the largest T-rex fossil ever discovered, she roars with ferocious aromas of grapefruit, citrus, mango and evergreen. Delicate in body with a mild bite in the finish.

Admin Note: Previously brewed as a 5.8% ABV offering, current and future batches are listed at 7% ABV per a tweak and translating the beer to a larger 30 bbl system. Tweaks may continue to change this ABV slightly as they settle on an official end product.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2014 Pours a rather cloudy, golden yellow with minimal head. Aroma and flavor are full of tropical, mango, citrus. Strong mango notes in the flavor, especially and I moved back and forth from this one to some of the other samples in my flight. This one really stood out.
