4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at brewpub.
Either I?m just a sucker for citra hops or this is one of the best IPAs I’ve ever come across. The aroma is through the roof with tons of citrus and sharp hop resin. It?s a beautiful deep golden color with an extremely bright white head that lasts as long as you can stand from finishing the entire pour.
The flavor is fantastic, as if there was any doubt from the aroma. Juicy citrus and mouth watering whole hops combine to form a bitter hop bite in the end. The palate is perfect. Full bodied with soft carbonation. An awesome beer that made my night.

On tap, Huge Citra aroma, as expected, very smooth citrus taste with some malts. Very nice amber appearance, and a great mouth feel, holds on nicely! Fantastic!

I’m not a huge fan of straight Citra IPAS but this is a pretty good one. Typical Citra dominant nose, light malt presence lasting bitterness. Beautiful looking beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Un liquide orangé qui respire l’orange confite, la résine et les sucres. En bouche c’est effectivement très collant et peu amer. Savoureux mais pas de momentum sur la buvabilité.
