Hazy orange pour, a thumb of head. Big floral tropical fruit aroma noticeable shortly after opening the bottle. Tropical fruit, slightly dank, sweet caramel, a bit of alcohol warming. Loads of lace. Medium body.

Catching up on old reviews. Wonderful tropical IPA. Hazy amber orange pour. The beer smelled amazing...grapefruit, mango, pineapple, orange, grass. The taste was equally diverse with a nice hop bite. Just a hint of lingering bitterness. Incredibly juicy tasting. One of the easiest drinking DIPA I've had. Phenomenal.

22 oz. bottle sampled at the Side Project release bottle share. Pours a clear deep gold with a small white head. Notes of citrus fruits, caramel, pine resin, and some tropical fruits- though not as much as expected. Medium-bodied, with a bitter, citrusy, resinous mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. A little subdued compared to other citra hop IPAs I’ve had, especially when considering its description. Still solid.

prominent citra hop nose, slight earthy tones, but a ton of fruitiness. Hop flavor is the same, and well balanced by bitterness and a moderate malt sweetness. The tropical fruitiness comes through more in the flavor. Really well hopped from bitterness to flavor to aroma. Alcohol is well hidden and is not warming.

22 ounce bottle thanks to umich03jm. Poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a hazy copper with a big white head of foam. The aroma has a lot of citrus influence. Grapefruit, orange zest, some pine. Smells fantastic. Fresh citrus zest aroma just makes this beer smell great. The taste is oranges and cream sweetness with a mild bitterness coming through throughout. Juicy and lingering finish. Dries out a bit at the very end. Very nice beer.

Bottle from Bill, real fresh. Pours golden orange with medium head. Lots of buttery citra, pineapple, mango, and sugar in the nose and flavor. Not a bad ipa but too sweet for my taste.
