3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I was expecting more of a Citra presence, but this came off as more of a pale ale. Light citrusy aroma and taste, but not enough bitterness to be in IPA territory. A good beer, but not a great IPA.

Pours clear golden yellow with a small white ring. Aroma is light citrus and grapefruit and light grain. Taste is nicely fruity with citrus, grapefruit and tropical fruit coming off the hop bitterness. So well balanced with the light malts that do not overpower instead they provide a great base and counterbalance.

This IPA just explodes off the palate...true to its name, you’ll be in for a world of citrus aromas and flavors. Great mouthfeel with balanced carbonation and a dry finish.

Very very exciting and strange beer. Citrus is the main aroma and taste both. Good sgape and foam which remains till yhe end. Fabulous ipa.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Honey hue with creamy off white head that lingered. Aroma is melon, tangerine, lime, grapefruit, pine, peaches. Mouthfeel is great with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet initially with a nice bitter following that extends through the finish. Overall this is a great fruity version of a west coast IPA! Drink fresh!

12 oz. bottle from De Bierkoning @ home. Amber color, hazy. Off white head with little retention. Aroma’s: strong resin at first, mellowing a bit later, citrus (peel), light malty sweetness. Retronasal there’s hop bitterness, citruspeel, grapefruit juice, less resin. Flavor is bitter with light sweetness and light citrussy sourness. Medium bodied. Finishes somewhat dry and long lasting bitter. Lovely and very refreshing.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Een heerlijke hoppige IPA, gecombineerd met de smaak van grapefruitschillen, die meegebrouwen zijn. Hierdoor ook erg fris. Kleur nadert ook die van rode grapefruit.
