A double IPA that is hazy pale in color with a strong pungent aroma that comes from large amounts of Citra hops.

Surprise bomber from Richard. Damn dude, thanks! Pours out an orange color with a white head on it. Smell is loaded with mango, pineapple, and other citrus notes. I have never had anything made with Citra before.. Taste is great, smooth, fruity, no alcohol bite. Plenty of carbonation, basically a perfect double IPA. Fantastic beer; can I get some more?

Type: 22-oz. bottle Glass: Pint mug From: Beer Advocate’s Toner Price: N/A Purchased: N/A; Received on Feb. 18, 2015 Consumed: Feb. 20, 2015 Misc.: N/A Thanks Tony! Poured a honey, orange, hazy color with 2-to-3 fingers of khaki-white, rocky head. A few light bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Good layered, foamy, spiderweb lacing on the sides of the glass. Average retention. (Sight - 4.13) Wow. First whiff reminded me of an Alpine IPA, specifically Bad Boy or Duet. Got mango, tropical, pineapple, Citra, floral, Amarillo, light resin, grapefruit pulp, nectarine, passion fruit, wet pine, sugary caramel and red grapefruit. Delicious. (Smell - 4.88) Taste wasn’t as potent as the smell, which would be hard to live up to anyway. Got toned down tropical, mango, pineapple, grapefruit pulp, bitter nectarine rind, Citra, some resin, caramel, peach, apricot, slight Juicy Fruit gum, light passion fruit, juice orange, floral and Amarillo. (Taste - 4.38) Medium body. Creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Long, juicy, bitter finish. (Feel - 4.25) This was really, really good. However, I’ve got yesterday’s Hopslam as the wee favorite between the two. Glad I got to try this though. (Overall - 4.38) 4.45 99 A

Tasting with the Crew. Didn’t know this badboy was showing up until Jrob21 pulled it out. At 45 days + we had some doubts that it would be as good as the ratings indicate. Would love to try fresh as this was awesome where it was. Tropical fruits, dank, citrus everywhere. Very nice.

Bomber shared with the crew. Was worried this was going to be too old at this point but this is still drinking incredibly right now. I have never had a beer with such a diverse hop experience. Everything from tropical fruit to bubblegum to bitter citrus grapefruit finishes. This has it all along with a good caramel malt working throughout the sip. Ranks up there although a notch below the best.

Bottle in blind tasting. Pours an orange color with white head. Aroma is citrus and mix of dank. Taste is sweet, dry, dank, citrus, really nice. Like this the more I drink it. This is really nice, but zues is as good and easier to get, awesome beer.

Bottle. Poured into big snifter. Nose is pungent grass and typical Citra dankiness. I could smell this all day. Pour is a hazy orange with a small white head. Taste is moderately tropical with a pineapple and melon flavor. Very light malt presence, just a little breadiness. Moderately firm bitterness at first but definitely builds as I drink it. No detectable alcohol and very quenching. Could stand just a bit mor carbonation for the mouthfeel and to break it up. Very nice.

22oz, thanks D! Clean orangey golden, ample head that settles. Sweaty, pithy, hints of lemon and pineapple, dry white pepper. Light body, crackery dryness, hints of bitter citrus meld with the hops to really make this beer balanced and easy drinking for 8%.

Pours a hazy, golden color; fluffy white head with excellent retention and fine-bubbled lacing; tiny bubbles, beautiful pour. Loads of dry, grassy and herbal hop character in the aroma; nicely resiny and dry; dank; strongly reminiscent of herb. Medium-to-full body: creamy, softly textured mouthfeel despite the lively carbonation.
