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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A- pours a rich amber with a thin white head that dissipates quickly and clings to the glass. No retention and great lacing. S- hops! Lemon, pine resin, caramel malts, floral, barley, light clover honey. Some grass and soap. Grapefruit is mild. M- medium tacky body with a medium resin palate. Decent carbonation with a light burn. T- pine, malts, and some citrus at first. Some vegetal quality with more citrus on the middle. Ending has legs with soap and grass that gives way to malty aftertaste. Fairly linear and expected but great after a hot day at the beach in Santa Cruz.

On tap beer market bbrook. Strong citrus aroma. Taste is hoppy with a lot of juicy fruit flavor. Sweet malt. Almost annoyingly sweet. Decent but there are a lot better IPAs out there

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a dark gold/orage color. A small white head that sticks around with a lot of lacing on the glass.
Smell of grapefruit and some caramel malts.
Not exactly what I was expecting from a citra ipa. Too heavy on the malt although there is a nice grapefruit rind finish.
A little bit stickier than normal. Good carbonation levels.
Not a horrible beer, but not good either and really expected a lot more from a citra beer especially after having the gloriousness that is Zombie Dust.

Tasty and solid. Maybe I am an odd fan of citra hops. But other than that, do not count one me being the one that poetically describes this to a T.
I wish I had another and feel guilty for not sharing already.
