3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Dark copper in hue with a robust beige head. Nice lacing remains. A big citrus aroma with bready caramel. A really big citrus hop flavor. It is tart and biting. Not so much bitter as expected. Grapefruit and some fairly big malts. The hop profile takes this close to Double territory. The Citra hop stands up just fine by itself but this is becoming over done. Still, this is tasty and a nice showcase for the hop.

Tasting sampler at Beer Zen party, Osaka. Definitely the most complex and potent of the four sampled, a big floral aroma led by strong peach, very dusty and fresh. The flavour produces tropical notes, lychee, showcases the hop well. It’s backed by an earthy malt and strong bitterness, lively on the palate.

Poured from the bomber its a cloudy dark orange. Taste is citrus, juicy, spicy, and dry at the end. I walked the gauntlet of citras that have come out lately and this one is really good, just at the 7% mark I look for.

thought this’d be my favorite. Maybe it was older a Citra hops are usually bold, but while this was very citrus forward it was more understated and mellow.

Bottle shared by Ben, thanks! Pours a clear golden orange with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of citrus with a decent amount of sweet grains and a touch of caramel. Flavor is citrus forward with a sweet grains backbone and some additional sweetness from caramel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, pours hazy gold with a white head. Orange and pine over caramel malt, good balance with a moderate bitter finish. Creamyish texture and soft carbonation. It’s tasty but the hops could have a bit more punch.
