Growler. Finally! Been hunting this guy for a while. Nose is citra hop forward. A mix of light dank with tropical fruit, mango notes. Lightly hazy gold with a large white head. Light melon as it warms. Taste is initially bitter followed by a light malt sweetness, then a quenching hop flavor. Light orange flavor, with much mango and papaya. Pretty damn good!

Growler shared by Bill, 2 weeks old. Hazy golden color with small to medium white head. Aromas and flavor are somewhat close to boat beer which makes me happy but it was more muddled and didn’t have nearly the amount of clean, bitter, lemon juice yo. Notes of peach, nectarine, bitter and lightly ashy hop, grain, and other citra dank tones.. Body is very light and refreshing. Solid but wish I had it when it was a few days old.

Poured from a growler I got from Eddie. The man is a damn god. The pour is a darker orange, bits of clear gold shining through with a decent white head and some solid lace on the glass. This is going to be awesome. The aroma is a blast of Citra hops up front. There is a lovely leafy hop to go with the juiciness and a lovely pine bitterness on the back end. There is a ton of hop and a bittering pine resin. It's well balanced. The flavor is interesting. There is a lot more leafy hop on the front end, and the juiciness fades. The pine and bitter resin are also relaxed as it moves over the tongue. It's got a bit of maltiness on the back end that I don't necessarily care for. The mouth feel is light and crisp and the carbonation is a little off. It's light. The aftertaste is lingeringly butter zest on the finish. This is a damn good IPA, but I was hoping for a little more from a NE Citra beauty.

Growler shared with koleminer20, my god. Aroma is wonderful, tropical fruit, pine, dank, juicy, citrus, wonderful. Assurance Appearance is amber golden, white head, slight haze. Taste is pine, some tropical fruit, bitter, orange peel slight malt, pretty good. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light carbonation, bitter hop aftertaste. Overall, solid but I was expecting this to be better.

Pours a pale yellow color with a big, stable head. Offers a great, flowery lemon aroma on the nose, creating an enjoyable fruitiness from the get go. While there is not so much going on apart from the profound lemon, its multi layered richness actually convinces on its own. Truly refreshing, with a range between juicy to being crisp - very intriguing. Has a medium, soft mouthfeel, showcasing the beers pungent citrus greatness in a very mellowed, enjoyable fashion, while revealing enough hop oomph at the same time. Offers a citrus crispness right from the beginning, soothed by crackery malts and a fluffy aqueous quality. The malts turn a tad sweeter right before the swallow, which is neccessary to balance the fast evolving citraic bitterness, which remains utmost silk on the palate. Finishes clean and soft, with a dry, citrus fruitiness cutting through, establishing a juicy, long lasting aftertaste. Loved this, while I find it hard to describe, as this beer is entirely focussed on its citrus hoppiness, and that is said within few words. It is perfectly put together though, especially due to its smooth mouthfeel, equiping the citrus with a softness you wouldn’t be able to get from biting into an actual citrus fruit, while everything else is there. A flowery quality adds to the complexity of the citrus, keeping it interesting on the palate, while preventing it from overpowering the palate by scaling up too much lime bitterness.
