Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - JUL 23, 2012
12oz bottle, no date, poured into a Surly pint glass. Pours a dark honey-gold, with a frothy white head on top. Great sticky lace holds on for dear life. "The nose, the nose, my kingdom for the nose." All things holy, this is an amazing aroma. Fresh hops, pine needles, citrus zest, and a dry hay-like aroma. Other beers have bits and pieces of this aroma, but this is so potent and so fresh. Frick. I want to "cologne-up" with this stuff. The body is well-balanced and carbed up well. Crisp and clean, not too heavy. Holds its own with the ABV. Hops, hops, hops. Yes, please. Fresh green hops, grapefruit, melon, orange slices, honey - all melded perfectly to make this splendid beer. This beer is bitter, no doubt, but I love that it doesnít linger in any harsh manner. The finish is short, which I like and donít like at the same time. I like that it keeps me sipping (or gulping) more and more, but I donít like that my glass is soon empty, unable to be filled with this blessed brew again. More ZD, please!!!

Picked up in a trade at Tree House Brewing. Impressive. The aroma is light but full of lime, melon, passion fruit and hints of lemon. The flavor is very similar and fairly robust even in the finish. Softer mouthfeel, mildly bitter, easy to enjoy.

Hopmaestro (653) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2015
Aroma is big from citra, citrus, grapefruit and oranges. A pretty sweet maltbase crawls up like a zombie and tries to drag you down, but the hops lift you up and you stay upright and manages to carry you over the finish line. Good bitterness. Superb beer.

Paigeturner (98) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Orange clear pour. Citrus hop aroma. Flavor of fresh hops and mango and some other light fruits. Flavor is some malty and mostly hops. A must if you are a fresh hop fan.

jksipa (542) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2015
Bottle at Millerís pub. Hazy medium amber with a small white leaving lots of lace. Nose is big citrus with grapefruit, orange, and lemon with significant pine notes. Sufficient malt sweetness to support a huge bitterness from start to finish. Medium slickmouth with average carbonation and a long dry finish. Superb.

So juicy, both on the nose and the tongue. Citra is a fantastic hop for pales since they can otherwise be a bit boring.

From a bottle. Great hop aroma, citrus, pine. Intense hop flavor, malt is there but behind the hops. Full flavor. Excellent flavor and aroma for a pale ale.

Pours a slightly hazed sunyellow color, with a big, stable head. Smells of sublime bitter, fruity lemon zest with balancing, white-bread malts to it. Citrus got a flowery, inviting note to it, enhancing the beers juicy, ripe lime pulp impression. Drinks outstandingly easy, with a medium, soft carbonation to it, resulting into a very pleasant, citrus forward pale ale. Tastes of citrus peel from the very beginning, while the malts provide a fantastic soft mouthfeel, exhibiting a hint of honey, as well as juicy lime. Also yields a soft minerality, creating a very clean and crisp hop profile, showcasing the pungent exotic fruit perfectly. Finishes with biscuity malts among an aqueous softness and pleasantly metallic carbonation, together with a well weaved in citrus hoppiness, which shines during the very end of tasting the beer. While its hoppiness provides a pleasant assault on the tongue it is perfectly integrated and balanced by all other ingredients of the beer. This creates a great softness on the palate, resulting in an outstandingly easy drinking beer, for which you donít necessary need to be a hophead, more of a beer which convinces you to be one.
