4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I have had this brew several times and it just simply rocks. Citra has become one of my favorite hops. Slightly hazy golden pour, medium white head. Aroma of fresh grassy and citrussy Citra hop. Nice fruity bitterness in taste. Quite clean, not affected by a lot of caramel malts, which I like in American IPAs, but which I dont miss at all in this beer. Crisp. I would buy a crate of this stuff every time they brew it.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from Bierkoning, pours a hazy golden orange color. Medium head that faded quickly, tons of white lace rings in my inner glass. Aromas of dank citra hops, fruit punch, resinous pine trees, light sweet malts. Taste are tons and tons of grapefruit zest, pine, lemons, apricot, and other acidic fruits. Pineapple aftertaste. Carbonation was medium, body was light to medium. Oh man, I could drink about 10 of these juicy, refreshing ipa’s. Perfect showcase of citra, so fuely and rez’d out. Best ipa of my trip but thats no surprise due to my feind like addiction to citra hops.

The best ballave i had in a single hop beer. When you read the label you expect a cirtusy and DeMolen mange to deliver the elegance ballance of aroma, bitterness and taste to a wide span of temperatures.

Bottle from bar Animal. This beer is a solid IPA. Quite refreshing with a modest 4.8% alcohol. Aromas of lemon and grapefruit. Tastes fresh with a sweeter finish.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 5, 2013 Nov 2012 - cold bottle. This is one of the best American-style IPAs I’ve had so far - probably the best. Mild, citrusy, a bit bitter and quite malty. Liking this one a lot. ***************************************** April 2013 - new batch bottled in Nov 2012. Lots of bubbles, 2cm head with good retention. Taste of caramel malts with typical citra flavours. Really nice balance with only a mild level of bitterness. It’s still my favourite IPA to date.

Very hazy gold - amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Light palate, fresh, crisp and a little airy. Mild creamy malt over which sits marvellous fresh pink grapefruit hops. Such a clear and fresh fruit flavour, quite startling! Minerally crisp finish. Love the way Menno extracts these super fresh fruit flavours from hops. Amazing beer!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Che gran bell’IPA! Aroma agrumato di limone, luppolato con un qualcosa di ananas.Poca schiuma e ambrata. Al palato di nuovo agrumata, amara nella giusta maniera. Bilanciatissima. Corpo elegante mediamente corposa. Una gran bella bevuta. La miglior IPA mai assaggiata (e non è nemmeno il mio stile preferito).

Hazy amber, thick off white head. Aroma is very very hoppy and fruity, grapefruit and lychee. Very good carbo and decent body for its alcohol percentage. Taste is hops, fruit. Nice bitter aftertaste. Great reward after walking the 40km Airborne mars!
