660ml bottle - gift from N&A - thanks!
Massively sticky caramelly aroma. Pure sugary syrup. Plenty of fruit too, but the sugar’s the most prominant feature. Mid orange, huge persistent foamy head. Sweet caramelly body, simple fruity hops too - fleshy fruits. Gentle zesty bitterness. Had this a hundred times, snore - a brew devoid of details and smothered in sugar. Later there’s some marmitey yeastiness both in the aroma and taste.

Bottle. Hazy copper with a big pillowy white head. Aroma is fresh cut grass, pine and lemon. Taste adds lots of grapefruit and melon. Sweet caramel malt and lightly bready finish. Silky smooth mouthfeel that finishes with solid carbonation. I like the way this is put together. Simple and classic.

pours a medium orange with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of bitter citrus peel (a lot of grapefruit and tangerine) resinous pine, herbal and flowery hops, sweet bready malts, and some caramel. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with a lot of bitter citrus. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, medium long finish. Overall, a pretty nice APA that features the Citra hops nicely.

Oscbert (1010) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 9, 2014
~Strong floral hop aroma with grapefruity/tangerine like citrus, resinous. Bready malt character. ~Pours a slightly hazy golden color with lasting dense creamy off white head. ~Tangerine citrusy hop flavor, resinous hop, bready malt. ~medium full bodied, medium CO2, lingering resiny hop flavor. ~Enjoyable. Interesting aroma and flavors from a single hop. Pretty simple beer, but refreshing and tasty.

This is a great IPA. Not bitter in the least. Slightly cloudy golden color. Creamy texture. Apricot taste in the background. Again, not bitter. Head stays to the end. My favorite IPA.

Aroma of citra hops amber coloured, not much head. Bitter taste with a bitter palate. Not much complexity to it.

Flowery aroma and a golden color. Hoppy front end with it lingering on the palate. Not bad.
