Beautiful golden pour with generous head. Citrus and floral nose with slight bitter hint. Great balance of sweet citrus hop with a back of toasty malt. burnt orange peel and grass hide any alcohol burn. Superb.

Itís hard to go wrong with the auto-tune of hops but not everyone nails it this well.
Amazing nose full of fresh lively citrus and tropical fruit character.
Another perfectly attenuated imperial pale from pipeworks that is the perfect compliment to the aggressive hopping.
Moderately high carbonation level plays nicely resinous, somewhat sticky mouthfeel.

Nice clarity. Aroma is good and hoppy. Tastes great, not as bitter as some other Double IPAs. Fairly dry. Finishes clean.

Itís like a ninja eating an orange. In my mouth. Woody tropical citrus darkness, like cat piss in my basement.

From bottle shared by ryandevilhorns. Golden orange pour with tiny white head. Aroma is citrus, cream, and cat urine. Taste is very interesting...initially sharp and hoppy followed by a citrus sweetness.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2013 Gold orange pout. Didnt get much of the citruis I was expecting. I found this to have more floral than anything. Very bitter, wrecks tha palate but yet still smooth without any lingering bitterness. Was really looking forward to this and kinda dissapointed. I wish I could have tried fresh, it may have been much better, but I believe this is going on 3 or 4 weeks old which is the point that Zombie Dust goes from phenominal to average. Otherwise nothing stood out.
Tried again. Batch 110. Bottled this morning. Lots of Citra hops. Some pine a bit of dank. Lots of sweetness for a beer this style. Had right after zombie dust, this is a bit heavier, and much sweeter.

This beer lives up to the hype. Pillowy white head. Massive citrus on the nose. Everything youíd expect from a Citra IPA. Pineapple, grapefruit, tangerine. Lasting finish. The citrus character lends both sweetness and sharp bitterness, with a little tartness. Malt isnít absent, but the hops run the show on this one. Fantastic.

Any citra beer gets me pumped to begin with, so when i hearded the titans of hops over at Pipeworks brewed one up i was ecstatic. Aroma of tropical fruit some serious citrus with a vibrant and clear body and fluffy white head. Tastes unbelievable that citrus comes through strong but doesnt feel juicy or cloying. The medium body on the palate balance that mild fruity sweetness with a nice dryness. Another killer ipa from these guys.

Bomber I found at Binnyís Niles. Aromas of grapefruit, orangey citrus, little pine, tropical fruit, dankness, and some faint malt behind all of the hops. Flavors of orange, grapefruit, bit of tropical fruit, juicy hop with some bitterness on the tongue, some malty sweetness, very faint ABV presence in the end. Mouthfeel is fine, but carbonation seems a bit low. Would have loved to have tried this a couple of weeks back when it was released as I have feeling it may have been epic. Still extremely solid Have love citra hops.
