4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle- Pours a nice and lively pale orange with a two finger bone white head that wants to stick around and does nicely with good layered lace. Aroma is very nice, those citra hops really resonate, fresh citrusy notes like peach, lemon and some grapefruit, some pine. The taste is similar, citra hops, which is what you want in a beer like this, piney, moderate bitterness, dry, citrusy. Body is medium, finish leaves your mouth dry, medium carbonation. I really liked this beer, Laughing Dog Does IPA or pale ales right, it’s all about the hop. At 68 IBU’s, I would consider this in the IPA category, but whatever. Very proud of my local brewer up here in North Idaho!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear amber with a large dull white head that leaves decent lace and lasts quite some time. Aroma is pine, tropical fruits, and some floral notes. Flavour is resin, pine, citrus, decent malty backbone, medium bitterness that lingers a little, and a malty sweetness in the mix. Pretty tasty brew.

Bottle to tulip
This starts off spicy with all the trademarks of citra; tropical fruits and lychee with a little grapefruit. A clear amber with a tinge if red, thin white bubbly head. The taste is a little peppery, with tropical fruit, and grapefruit; no surprises there. It has a pleasant taste but I feel it's lacking something. Perhaps it's a bit thin as well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear ’dark gold’ with not much in the way of foam on tap. Aroma is hop - tropical fruit, grapefruit. Soft cereal malt background. Bitterness is gentle. Relatively complex for a single hop. Drinkable as can be.

On draught at the Underground in Edmonton. Nice citra taste - little lacking in body.

Very nice apa. A amber copper color. A very enjoyable brew with the citra hop flavours really shinning through

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 3/6/13 .. 9 days ago.. Not bad.
Picked this up at the COOP tonight for about $5... poured into my HotD goblet... Good 1 finger white head sticks around for a bit and leaves decent spotty lacing. The brew is polished straw golden.
The nose shows plenty of Citra hoppiness... bright citrus slightly reigned in by something I think smells like pineapple, Brenda says apricot. Soft pale maltiness helps deliver the bountiful hops.
Slightly more bitter than a standard APA, but that is okay... This is a hop delivery device and does the job well.. Again citrus and a light apricot show up.. Good maltiness (perhaps too much mid palate) but it dries out on the finish leaving a great lingering hop profile that begs for another sip.
Very drinkable... light/medium body with a light for the style carbonation... again, I want another sip.
Well done... I wish I picked up another.

Pale copper colour with micro-head that hangs around to the bottom. Smells of Tropical fruit but muted. Flavour is grassy, grapefruit, minor lemon and a little bit of breadiness. Goes down nice.
