Draft at ChurchKey thanks to Donnie (and then I suppose Bartender Eric)! Thanks! Poured a dark golden brown color with a small off-white head. Aroma was nice citrus notes - some grapefruit and lime. Notes of sweet malts. Flavor was caramel character, with some grapefruit. Alcohol is there, but it’s pretty smooth for over 10%.

Pours a hazy yellow orange with a fat finger of fluffy white head, gradually compacting to a thin cap, and moderate spotty lacing. Nose is sweet citrus and pineapple, with a little clove and earthiness. Taste is similar, pineapple and mango, with an orange peel bitter finish. Mouth feel is medium- to full-bodied, creamy, with moderate to low carbonation. Oh yeah, that’s Citra hops, all right! This reminds me of Brewster’s Brewmaster Cask Citra Summer Ale, for obvious reasons, but with much more depth of flavour. I do like a good tripel, and this is a really good tripel - and deadly dangerous: the ABV is surprisingly well-hidden, showing only as a gentle warming towards the end of the glass.

Metalchopz (2533) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 19, 2014
Pours a hazy golden colour with a foamy off-white head, decent retention and some bubbly lace. You can definitely smell the Citra hops giving out some sweetness (oranges) and mild grapefruit zest. This creates a nice mild bitterness, well-blended the alcohol and the sweetness of the tropical fruits. Mango lingers in the aftertaste. This brew is an amazing twist on the Tripel style.

jdobbs (411) - New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 14, 2014
Pours golden with a huge white head. Aroma: straw, herbs, grass, slightly floral. Taste: bready maltiness, lemon, orange, ginger. Medium body, creamy, moderately sweet with a spicy bitter in the finish. Nice smooth tripel, that could use a bit more depth

high_on_hops (747) - Burlingame, California, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Pours a clear gold with a white head and lacing. It has a great aroma of herbs and citrus hops and a bit of yeast. The flavor is mild citrus with a light malt backbone and a malty, bready finish over a medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2014 Point important de cette évaluation, je n?apprécie guère les IPA. C?est une bière qu?on m?a offerte et je les déguster en entier. Alors quoi dire d?autre qu?elle est houblonnée à souhait, on le sait des les premiers arômes. Donc, si vous aimer les IPA, nul doute qu?elle sera vous plaire.

Pour ceux qui veulent savoir ce que goûte le Citra, l’Herbe à Détourne 2014 est un exemple parfait d’une utilisation réussie de ce houblon. Un 10,2% indétectable ou prèsque au goût, mais qui relâche sa chaleur une fois avalé. Une bière spéciale et très agréable.

Liquide légèrement embrouillé d’une couleur tirant sur le doré. Effervescence modérée. Effluves de levure belge ainsi que de pamplemousse, d’ananas et je dirais de fruits de la passion. Bière d’une différence que j’adore!

AgentAle (954) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 17, 2014
Aroma is a wonderful combination of citrus and pineapple ester notes. Very fresh. Taste is a sweet maltiness that is quickly consumed by the bitterness of the heavy hop additions. The bitterness reveals clove and earthiness on the tip. The high abv us surprisingly smooth. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin head that retains well.

milara (65) - Ste-Thérèse, Quebec, CANADA - APR 14, 2014
Robe blonde orangé voilée avec élégance. Un arôme puissant de fraicheur citronné qui ne peut laisser indifférent. Au goût il y a un bonne équilibre entre le sucré, l’amer et l’acide dans une texture de grand cru. Une finale de longueur moyenne avec une petite amertume de houblon très abordable. Une bière rafraichissante, excellent choix pour faire découvrir le style triple et la puissance du houblon à des néophytes. Et attentien, elle est traître avec ces 10.2% d’alcool!
