rejtable (1399) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2013
Tap at Paradiso (Dupont). Pours orange with no head and a little bit of lacing. Notes of apricot, some toffee and lots of piney bitterness. Light sweetness and high bitter in the tastes. Medium body with lively carbonation. Well done.

Cloudy golden with a medium sized white head. Aroma is citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is earthy, yeasty and citrusy. Quite nice but not very complex.

bierkoning (10500) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2013
Bottle. Golden color. Mango, citrus and a hint of hopoil in the aroma. Alcoholic flavor. Hopoil. A firm bitterness with some citrus and tropical fruit. Lovely aroma in a powerful beer.

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours with a clear golden yellow hued body with a large, barely off-white head that lasts. Good lace. Aromas are of insanely tropical fruit, dank hops. Somewhat off malt character that I use to refer to as soggy malt or wet dog. Still canít find a better term for it (its not DMS), and I mostly get it from certain Canadian maltsters more than others. Mildly grassy, fruity, caramel. Flavors are very fruity, a bit alcohol forward, sweet, pepper, lots of grassy and tropical fruit notes. A bit of resiny cohumulone or other deeply harsh bittering sensation in an otherwise not very bitter balanced beer. Light butterscotch notes, warming, fruity, floral. Drinkable and enjoyable, but a bit not to my liking (yeast and malt wise). Good bitterness balance and good hop flavor. Warming with medium carbonation and a slightly fuller body with some minerals at the finish.

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Golden tangerine pour with a small eggshell head that leaves as a wisp. Aroma subtle considering the aggressive flavor. Orange peel, tangelo, grapefruit, lemon, mango and papaya. Definitely has a tropical fruit presence. Invisible alcohol and not a ton of evergreen or caramel. Citrus forward, without doubt. Absolutely delicious!

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 17/20
J_man (725) - Tustin, California, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Smells like youíre stepping into a pine tree processing plant! Catty, grassy and strong pine aromas rise off the crystal clear light copper body with a foamy white head. The first taste is as explosively hoppy as the aroma! Tons of resiny pine flavor followed by some grapefruit and pith. The bitterness lays down and puts your tongue in delicious hoppy straitjacket. But just as it peaks, some dark caramel and toffee sweetness comes through to balance it out almost perfectly. Then the alcohol steps up to sweep some of this away but leaves all the good parts behind. Thereís a bit of a citrusy lemon flavor in the background but itís beaten down by the heavier flavors. Needless to say, thereís a lot of bitterness left behind and the flavors make you want to take another sip immediately. Surprisingly easy to drink for a 10% ABV beer. This is one big, delicious IPA that I canít wait to try again.

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle into a goblet. Golden amber, slight white head, fairly heavy lacing. Spicy, grassy citrus aroma. Taste is peppery, assertively bitter, pine, a bit of tropical fruit. Only Flying Dog could make citra this mediocre.

IPABevyGuy (46) - New York, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Golden amber pour with a white head. Smells like grapefruit and mango. Tons of layered citrus flavor, predominately grapefruit, but not overwhelming. Followed by a light malt body to smooth out the bitterness at the end. Malt hangs on after the bitterness fades. Very well rounded beer.

dbarnold (1126) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - JUN 5, 2013
BEAST! Super bitter, strong heavy flavor of pine and resin. Still, relatively (for 10%) easy drinking which leads to total palate decimation. Finishes dry. Probably the most aggressive of the single hop series.
