3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pretty sure I got it colder than 48 degrees, and I poured it in a glass, so...yep, rulebreaker. Pours a darker gold/amber, cloudy, with a fair off-white head that settles to a thicker ring and film and leaves some wispy waves and spots of lace. Nose involves sweaty tropical notes of mango and pineapple, sweet caramel and toasted (almost nutty) malt, some citrusy things going in and out, some spicy hops, herbal tea notes. Quite a bit sweet, pretty bitter. Medium bodied, fairly active, quite oily, a bit sticky, finishing pretty long with juicy fruit and toasted malt notes. Definitely enjoyable, drinks a bit heavy perhaps, but it is an 8.2%er. Think I dig the Rico Sauvin better, but I think it’s just my preference for Nelson over Citra.

Poured from a can. Pours a dark hazy amber with a thin white head. Light carbonation with a medium syrupy body and plenty of lacing. Nice funky citrus aroma with some light malts. Crisp citrus fills the mouth. A touch of lingering bitterness and a smooth finish. Not too bitter or harsh. Pretty enjoyable.

"Don’t hoard this beer. Citra Ass Down and drink it now." That’s good advice if I’ve ever heard it. Against the Grain’s Imperial IPA is a hop-forward brew that showcases the dank side of Citra and this beer’s other cones. Orange and foamy pour. There are notes of pineapple, grapefruit, mango, and zesty orange. The body is chewy and there’s the slightest hint of booze heat. This is a pretty aggressive beer. It’s not as juicy and tropical as some Citra-focused IPA’s. If you’re a fan of the fruitier hoppy beers this might come across as more potent than you’d like. Still, this is a must-have for any hophead who likes Citra.

Can. Pours light amber with off-white head. Aroma is grapefruit and lemon. Taste is sweet malty grapefruit with a piney grapefruit finish. Pretty good but not something i would probably buy again given the great selection we have in CO.
