3fourths (7887) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 24, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2013 Bottle. Lightly hazed golden amber body with a fine white head. I swear what I get most of with this hop is tropical fruit bubble gum. Banana liqueur comes to mind given the alcohol. Immensely fruity and sugary smelling. I know the nose can not sense sweetness level. The nose can recognize well-enough the signatures of high sugar content from the stew-y malt. Youíve got your rotting pear and apple esters mixed with your diesel-smelling fusel alcohols to create a sort of hooch character thatís rare to find outside of malt liquor. In this case you have the added bonus of fucking hops all in your face. So hereís some stupidly bitter absinthe astringency and some of that fennel / anise herb flavor to go with it. But thatís not all, because weíre also throwing in a watery body with a boozy film coating and lingering flavors of apple + shallot mouthwash.

MrHangover (2455) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 24, 2013
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange beer with a minimal amount of slightly beige head on top. Aroma is hoppy, but the citra does not stand out. A shame, since I really like the citra hop. Flavour is quite bitter and citrussy, with a slight hint of some alcoholic sweetness. Alchohol is hard to detect, but noticeable after drinking. Dry, medium long finish, quite a nice beer, but itís missing the citra in my humble opinion. Could be an old bottle, but for the hop character to fade completely, it has to be very old...

Butters (3735) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Sampled side by side with the centennial variety. Both had an identical dull golden pour with ring of near white head. I definitely prefer the aroma on this one. Big clean citrusy nose and a slightly skunky finish. Definitely more bitter than the centennial. I realize now that I REALLY dig citra for use as aroma hops, but not so much on flavoring or bittering. Still, pretty good DIPA in its own right.

EithCubes (4752) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Ooh, was not expecting this to be such a big boy! Anyway, 100th rating for this brew, from a fresh bottle. Nose is loaded up with rindy fruit, orange and tangerine with some grapefruit, lighter resin and oil. Sickly transparent orange body with a soapy off-white head. Taste in the mouth strongly sweet but balanced by strong bitterness; the former wins out in the end. Fullish body gently cleanses the palate and leaves behind a fruity, citric aftertaste. The sugar is thick here, the hop flavor a little suppressed by it, and the requisite oils and resinous character are squeezed out entirely. Still, clean and strong, and it really does hide the alcohol quite well.

Pith (123) - New York, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Pours light amber/pinkish? with small white foam/bubble head. Aroma- grapefruit, dirt. Taste- malty grapefruit. Tart, dirt grapefruit aftertaste. Really smooth. Again, not a fan of grapefruit-dirt hops, but thatís really only strong in aftertaste. Smooth caramel? Appreciate. Almost plum in beginning, there is a caramel wave before low grapefruit-dirt end.

rxeight (1234) - Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Citrius and pine hop aroma. Lots of sweet malt on the back end. Pretty good stuff but nowhere near zombie dust or fresh citra ninja.

rejtable (1236) - 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.

Zer0 (1126) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2013
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 (9999) - 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.
