COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true amalgamation of unicorn tears and awesomesauce. We start with 2-row, Vienna, and Rye malts to create a bready malt flavor and dry finish to accentuate the hop flavor. We then add Chinook, Columbus, Centennial, Amarillo, and of course, a massive load of Citra hops at finishing, leaving you with enticing aromas of lychee, gooseberry, and passionfruit delivered only by the unique Citra hop. Put this full-frontal assault of deliciousness all up in your grill immediately!

I love Ciara hops. This has wonderful citrus and pine and lemon drop aroma. Mild malty and tinge of rye. Mostly great hoppy brew.

Draft at the Tuscony suites in Las Vegas. Hoppy aromas. Not much head to speak of. Flavor was expected floral and pine. Not bad. Nice by the pool.

Slightly opaque golden with a creamy head. Aroma is big lemon zest. Taste is quite lemony but not in a lip-puckering kind of way.

rosenbergh (8499) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 29, 2015
Draught at the Atomic Liquor, Las Vegas, NV. Hazy yellow colour with a small white head. Delicious citrusy and resiny hoppy aroma with moderate bitterness. Great! Citrusy, resiny mild grapefruity hops, moderate bitterness and some malt in the balanced flavour. Very soft carbonation but not watery though. Excellent! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reimer96 (1511) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 27, 2015
Pours a hazy yellowish gold with a frothy white head. Aroma of spicy rye malts, tropical fruits, mango and passionfruit. Taste is a textbook expectation of spicy rye malts and mango Citra hops in a great balance. Body is medium to light but overall a crisp and dry finish make this beer great!
