This pours a golden color with a 1 finger white head that falls to a lingering cap, it has some small spots of lacing. On the nose, I am getting a little hints of citrus and some faint pine, I can say not what I was expecting. In the flavor, I get some carmel notes up front and some real maltiness. This is all washed away by some citrus notes(lemon and grapefruit) and a ton of spicy hop notes. It does have a little warmth from the alcohol but It does seem to be a little one sided. It finishes with just a huge lingering bitterness and a hint of lemon zest. It is a little unbalanced but still worth a shot.

Bottle. Amber with nice thick creamy head. Medium carbonation. Nice soft mouthfeel. Citric hoppy scent. Very bitter in a one-dimensional way. Good ballsy IPA and a nice surprise from Dead Frog, who are proving that they can actually brew a high quality craft beer. A lot of their product seems to be marketed to the Sleeman crowd (it is actually better), but this one is a keeper. Thanks Dead Frog!

gramity (1625) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 30, 2011
Pours a clear deep golden with a rich and lacing off-white head. Amazingly fresh and citrusy hop aroma. Medium body, a little sweet fruit but the dry and pretty astringent Citra hops dominate. Very astringent finish

Lagerboy (1957) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 16, 2011
Clear, light amber orange, white receding head. Light citrus hop aroma. Big hop taste at first, gives way to some tropical fruit and background malt. Hoppy citrusy finish. Very nice. Not too intense for a Lagerboy.

reebtogi (5735) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 11, 2011
650ml bottle pours a golden color with some orange highlights. There is about a finger of white head which leaves a few spots of lace. Aroma is light citrus. Taste is light malty sweetness with a moderate citrusy hop bitterness in the finish. A decent enough IPA which was quite enjoyable.

Outstanding. Citra is what it claims to be - but not to the exclusion of what we want in an IPA. The citrus is mild and compliments the hops perfectly. Bitterness is not overwhelming - not sure of the IBU rating but I would put it at 60-70. Delightfully bold but smooth.

Thanks to boney for this. Great looking dark orange gold with a frothy white top. Aroma is citrus hops and a great sweet honey malt. Taste is a slow build of citrus hop bitterness and a great malt backbone that is just phenomenal. Great beer, wish it was around me.
