3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to glkaiser; bottling date 09/16/13. Pour is crystal clear orange, small off-white head, creamy with nice lacing. Aroma is citrus, passionfruit, cat piss, dank dank. Flavor is the same, but not unfortunately as clean as the aroma, light sweet, light bitter, pine resins and a bit of rye bite. Medium body, a bit oily. Nice effort.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bomber poured into a pint glass. Pours dark golden with thick white head. Aroma is fresh citrus hops and a hint of malt. Taste is similar - light clean malt with well-balanced fresh citrus, piney hops. Clean finish with quickly fading bitterness. Quite different from Trickster and other Black Raven IPAs - much lighter malt bill, similarly fresh hops though not as bitter. Probably not as good as Trickster overall, but quite good nonetheless.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden with a rim of whites, okay looking. Smells like citra hops (BO, onion, lemon), thereís a pineapple gummy bear in the back as well. Flavor is bitter with plenty of pithy hops and a decent dry malt. Medium bodied with moderated carbonation. Overall an okay beer, but nothing I would be back for. It really meets the flavor of the IPA lately, so those that love the Citra hop, imbibe.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Solid citrus-forward IPA. Primary notes are orange and lemon, over a good malt base with bitterness coming in at the end. Smooth, and highly drinkable! B+

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle. Yellow with a white head. Aroma is citrus, yeast and biscuit malt. Flavor is heavy on the citrus, with some iced team notes also coming through. There is also a hint of pine as well as some grassiness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22. Whether itís pour or package seems to be a crucial distinction with this beer. Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with decent carb and some loose sudsy whitish head. Drippy lace. Bright and appealing orange rind nose, but nowhere near the intensity you might expected from a celebrated fresh dipa. Bottle shock? Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty caramel, doughy mid-palate with some resiny hop bite on top of that. Kind of another well-made big hoppy ale in this format.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasty beer, for sure, but it wasnít what I expected. I expected lots of CITRUS, but I only detected a little, mainly in the finish (blended with the bitterness). I did, however, get a big blast of perfume, rose petals and plant stems. Malts were bready, cracker-like and complementing enough. But the citrus characteristics were not as bold as theyíre made out to be, especially with a name like Citrus IPA. Regardless, itís a solid beer.

14th rating of this beer. Oh great, its my 5000th rate. Who fucking cares? Fuck this hobby and fuck all the idiots that are making it not fun anymore. I love drinking beer and have traded and met some great people. I would like to give a shout out and big thanks to bvc, suzygreenberg, scrivvv, after4ever, bitbucket, mj, ibrew2or3, douglas88, hopdog, brewdad, and a whole bunch of other awesome people that have helped me achieve this useless milestone. People like this are why this is a fun hobby. On the other hand, i would like to take this time to tell all of you idiots that are hoarding beer, holding beer for ransom, buying up all the shit at the store and looking at it or waving it in your face like you have a huge giant dong, nobody cares that you have a big beer collection, overpricing beer that you put fucking brown sugar or honey in like it is a god damn expensive ingredient. You all know who you are. Instead of hoarding beer of price gouging, join a club or a sports team or something. Fuck off. And beer advocate, or baís or whatever the fuck you are called, you have ruined the trade forum. Thanks. Appreciate it. Oh yeah, fuck your rare beer too. Iíve got some comic books, baseball cards, and the original bat mobile to stack on top of all my rare beer. I win the competition. At least some of that shit is actually worth money, not some arbitrary price because all of you dipshits want it to fulfill some missing piece in your life. Find a woman to bang or something.
Anyways, this beer smells like citrus, nice rye notes, orange peel, a little dank, citrus again, light grain. Nice nose. Pours golden, a little haze, nice head and lace. Flavors of big citrus peel, pith, rye malt, a little grain. More oranges and lemons in the finish. Bright and juicy. Lingering citrus mouth feel. A really nice drinkability level. And rare. I fucking retire.
"beer smells like beer, beer tastes like malt, rare, and sour. Some hops. Meh" (Jon, 2006). # rater of a certain beer on the whole god damn internet. I love computers. Yay.
