Wow, this was a really good IPA. I’ve heard a lot of buzz in homebrewing circles regarding Citra hops (sold out a lot of places) and I have to say I didn’t understand the buzz until I tasted this beer. A light orange body that is clear but not brilliant under a soft white head. Aroma is very citrus-y with a lot of pineapple notes. Bitterness is quite apparent but not harsh in any way. This beer has got its IBUs in all the right places to make it extremely drinkable. Mouthfeel was smooth and good. This was a very good beer. I had this on-draft at Rozi’s Wine house in Lakewood.

Backlog 2013. Bottle at Franks. Pours a golden body with no head. Aroma is nice big, citrus hop and resin. Mouthfeel is syrupy with notes of pine resin and grapefruit. Straightforward and solid.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Aroma is citrus. Flavors are grapefruit, citrus, floral, and light pine. Great citra Ipa, very nice clean flavors. Well balanced, light bitter pine in the back of the mouth. Wish I had more of this!

Great IPA. Floral, hoppy, and a little bit of fruit malt. Great tasting and good looking brew.

snoworsummer (1613) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2014
From a bottle. Pours hazy gold with a bubbly, frothy white head and thick lacing. Tastes very happy, like strong grapefruit, light pine, smooth and creamy. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like musky hops, resin, sweet orange and grapefruit.

Bottle. Light amber color with a white head. Aromas of citrus, mostly grapefruit. Big bitter grapefruit flavors with a hint of sticky malt on the finish. Amazing.

tdoyledesign (156) - Michigan, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Pours a fairly transparent amber hue with no head. Aroma is very hoppy with a hint of citrus, pine and a slight hint of malt. Taste is mild on the citrus with a huge blast of hops. Palate is fairly dominated by the huge blast of hops. Not that well balanced against the malts and citrus.

Pours a golden orange with medium white head. Slight hop aroma with maybe a hint of citrus, grapefruit, alcohol? and some bready malt smell as well. Medium body with excellent hop flavor throughout and beyond swallow. Zesty, citrus hop flavor with maybe a bit of floral hops. Balanced well with some bready malt on the backbone. Finishes relatively sweet for a single IPA but still a bit dry long after the swallow. Decent head retention. Overall, a really solid IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tectactoe (1181) - Michigan, USA - APR 8, 2014
Bottle: Thanks, Jason. Semi-clear, golden sunburst body with a soapy white layer of foam that settles rather quickly. Aroma is bursting with fresh, juicy grapefruit, tangerine flesh, pineapple, moderately dank lupulin oils, & a hint of peach. A citric & tropical hop explosion, pulpy & juicy with only a touch of malty cleanliness on the back-end. Taste is slightly less citric than the aroma & much more assertive, starting with a pungent bitterness full of dripping wet hop leaves, grapefruit rind, & some hemp oil. More bitter, pith-y type fruit in the finish with mild hop abrasion & a touch of semi-sweet, cookie dough malt for good measure. Finishes rather dry & clean without tearing your enamel away. The taste doesn’t quite match the nose for expectations, but this was still a damn fine IPA all around.

Beerathon (960) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Color- slightly hazed yellow/orange with 1-finger head and lacing. Nose- citrus, soap, floral. Taste- slick mouth feel with citrus hops and tongue tingling bitterness. Good.

Très bonne IPA. Un nez extrêmement agréable, très tropical! En bouche, ce n’est pas majestueux mais c’est exactement ce à quoi on s’attend d’une IPA réussie. Je dégusterai de nouveau avec plaisir.
