Just as good as many other great ipaís that showcase the citra hop. Very citrus and tropical but with an odd finish. Very enjoyable nonetheless.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2015 I love my Citra, and buddy, you had me at dry hopped. Double dry hopped is only going to make me overheated and needy. I canít wait...
Cracking the beer is an explosion of fruit, earthy sourdough, and well, fruit. Add in some more fruit, and youíve got the idea. A blend of bright citrus and berries creates a wonderful anticipation, and I feel a wash over my tongue...reactionary and welcome.
The apricot-hued brew is light in color and the foam capping it is off-white, soft and moderately dense. I pull the first mouthful in over my lips and find the taste immediately biting my tongue; the tip, the sides, forcing itís way to my throat but slipping past so quickly it barely leaves a trace of itself behind. The bitterness is bracing, making you stand at attention like youíve been touched by a cold winter breeze after an hour in the jacuzzi, a clean shot of the aroma cutting through it and keeping a lid on the possibility of discomfort. The head is only a trace now; a thin layer of cloud thatís left some of itself as a wispy trail of wet lace on the glass.
The medium body is slightly thick; the provocative flavor carried forward on a carbonation that isnít entirely ambitious, but certainly isnít holding back either. Bitter, a bit of a long finish, a stimulating aroma, and a damn tasty flavor would keep me coming back for this one...and if you know anything about me, you know that thereís always time for just one more. Right?

Bottle. Hazy golden orange pour with a small head that fades to a messy film and ring. Citra hop heavy aroma of dank and juicy tropical and citrus fruit. Pineapple, kiwi, grapefruit, oranges, melon, light pine, light flowers, and a dank coating over all of it. Taste has a pretty strong dank hop oil flavor that can be a tad harsh on some sips but still very good. Great tropical fruit and citrus punch. A touch of pine in the finish. Medium body. Mouthfeel is creamy but sorta oily and slick too. Great stuff.
