Aubrey (3491) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Tasty beer, for sure, but it wasn’t 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 they’re made out to be, especially with a name like Citrus IPA. Regardless, it’s a solid beer.

On Tap at the Everett Craft Beer fest Orange amber with anice sandy colored head. Lots of good fresh hop aroma and a interesting citrus twist. Nice variation on the style.

22 Oz bottle pour, purchased at the brewery. Pours a bright golden color with a fizz ring head. These guys impress me more and more each day. Nice fruity flavor here. Like a fruity cereal taste with a light bitter hop finish. Nice citrus summer IPA. Good stuff.

On tap at the Hop Shop Ballard. Pours a clear yellow gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a combination of earthy and sweet citrus with a straw backbone. Flavor has more sweet citrus with a bit of bitterness and a straw backbone.

Bottle (22oz) Light clear golden. Big white head. Nice citrus aroma. Taste was all kinds of fruit but with a peel bitterness in the end. There seems to be a slightly metallic taste in the end too. Pretty nice overall. Would prefer in 12oz portions.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2015 I gave this a 2.1 overall score on 08.16.14. I probably had a dead IPA. REREVIEW: Bomber dated 06.17.15. Poured into a tulip on 08.14.15. A: Orange, herbs, rose, and candied lemon. It’s very unique. It’s like a soft perfume. A: 1 finger head fades to a ring and very thin spots of foam. Hazy reddish orange body. T: Follows the nose. Herbs, orange, and rose dominate. Candied lemon and vanilla are subtle. P: Creamy smooth with a crisp finish. It’s pretty light and fluffy in the mouth. O: I expected something like Citrusinensis, which is good, but this is on another level.

22 oz Bottle. Tasted on 12/12/14. Bottle courtesy of Espo. The beer has a very strong citrus aroma. The taste was more orange & lemon zest with some malt to balance out the citrus bitterness. Overall it was ok for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber up in Washington. Excessively awesome spiced nose. Beautiful IPA here, the additional spices really treat things up. Hope I find this again.
