Not much we tried at Destihl was that impressive, though this was one of the exceptions. Probably because I generally like anything with Citra hops... Iím easy to please. Medium bodied, grapefruit and grass. Tried with Nick in Normal in 2012.

Draft during theAlumís wedding. Thanks! Pretty awesome here, mostly late hopped. Pours a hazed gold with a persistent frothy head. Nose is bright, lots of tropical fruit, citrus and resin. Clean overall, light malt. On tasting, nice level of medium-high bitterness and tons of juicy hop flavor. Crisp and clean, tropical fruits and citrus. Malt to support. Superb IPA here.

Pour is a bright copper with a small white head. Aroma is a nice floral, grapefruit, citrus hop. Flavor is about the same lots of hop bitterness with a big citrus note. The hops push all the malts to the backround but I think that is what they were going for here. A enjoyable hop bomb.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Normal, IL). Pours a rich deep copper amber hybrid color. A gentle haze and moderate frothy whitish head sits atop and laces pretty well, sticks around as a film. Aromas are rich and vibrant Citra. Tropical fruit, mango, and huge grapefruit. Lemons, florals, and touches of biscuits, pale malts. Big juicy fruit aroma. Initial is medium bodied, perhaps a touch lighter. Allowing some bigger imbibing, this beer brings a firm dry bitterness up front. Grapefruit and peel, florals, lemons. Touches of tropical fruit. Middle gets a touch malty, reminding of dry cereal and bread, nothing too sweet. Firm bitterness bleeds into the backend and lingering finish with touches of soap, dry florals, and rich citrus lingering hops. A touch prickly. Flavorful. Quite nice display of the Citra, fresh and bitter without getting sweet in the malt area, and not overdone and just hops. Well put together experience here by the guys.
