TURDFERGUSON (3954) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2013
Tap at Miltown. Pours light hazy gold with medium sized off white head. Nose is citrus, some tropical fruits, light cotton candy sweetness. Flavor is similar-refreshing beer, easy drinking.

Tmoney99 (10712) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2013
Bottle. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy earth and citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This a good brew.

drfabulous (4014) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - APR 29, 2013
12 ounce from variety pack. Nice malty body and hoppy presence. Hops shine through, but slightly malty for the dominance of citra.

574deadzone (1045) - North Central, Indiana, USA - APR 29, 2013
Pours the same color and head qualities as the others. Nose is big on grapefruit, lots of pine, sweet grain, some tropical fruit. Pretty sweet, but quite bitter. Seemingly lighter palate-wise than the others, a touch more active, with lots of prickly, tingly bitterness on the finish. Definitely tasty, though I like regular crooked tree more for its complexity and FF more for what they got out of the hops. Still, Crooked Tree any which way, you can’t go wrong.

emacgee (4030) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 29, 2013
Draft at Milltown. Pours a soft straw gold with two fingers of sticky off white head. Nose is woody and citrusy with a nice zesty quality and definitive malt balance. Notes of toasted grain and hints of bread show in the aroma and flavor. A light sweetness shows in the flavor and then quickly dissipates yielding a light body and dry finish.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2013 Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber color with a small head that quickly fades and collects at the edges. Grabs the glass well. Really nice aroma, tropical fruit, mandarin oranges, grapefruit, lemons. The taste combines all the aromas with some flowers and a nice caramel malt backbone. Super smooth and bitter finish. Very soft carbonation, medium body, oily mouthfeel. This is a great showcase for the citra hop.

Pailhead (4842) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - APR 27, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate citrus and tropical fruits with a touch of grapefruit. It pours a transparent amber with a two finger off-white head that quickly settles to a thin film. There’s a good amount of sticky webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate citrus and tropical fruits. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit with a touch of lemon. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, this is the best of the mixed 12-pack.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - APR 26, 2013
Draft. Aroma has big notes of tropical fruits, grapefruit, citrus fruits and caramel malts. Wonderful fruity finish! Medium hazy amber hue with and avg white head that left great lace. Flavor is medium sweet and heavy bitter. Palate is medium bodied and oily average. Overall a wonderful IPA that really showcased the Citra hops quite well. Just loved it!
