4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle, fresh from the Citra release. pours a hazy, pale gold capped by a fluffy white head that leaves sticky sheets of lace. aroma is great with heavy grapefruit, orange rind, pine needles, and soapy florals with notes of lemon oil, toast, burnt grass as it opens up. flavor is delicious with subtle tropical notes of pineapple and apricot sneaking in amongst the citrus notes of pink grapefruit and lemon zest with bitter pine and a touch of sweet, caramel malts rounding out the back end. palate is medium bodied with smooth carbonation and a lingering, bitter, citrus finish. overall, a damn nice ipa.

Bomber to pint glass. Pours cloudy bright deep orange. Effervescent. Small, yet creamy white head with excellent lacing. Aroma is very malty with pine and light citrus. Taste is sugary sweet malt, citrus rind, and caramel. Finish is light bitter for IIPA but is grapefruit. Mouthfeel is medium-syrupy, good carb.

Slightly hazy orange pour with a nice white head. Big citrus nose. Orange and mandarin in the taste moves quickly into solid bitterness and hints of earthy hop spice. Nice.

22 oz bottle. (Texas Wine & Spirits) Carlsbad, CA.
Cloudy golden colour with a small frothy white head.
Fruity hops, moderate bitterness, mild dry grains, cookie malt and some dry tartness in the aroma.
The flavour is amazingly balanced fruity and resiny hops, moderate bitterness and dry maltiness. Tasty, rich and balanced. Just outstanding as they said it.
