Thechasm442 (685) - Manhattan, Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2016
Pour is a hazy burnt orange with a thick and frothy white head that leaves very nice lacing. Aroma is full of citra hops. Dank pine, tons of bright citrus and tropical fruit, and sweet caramel. Taste is grapefruit, orange, mango, papaya, and passionfruit. Very citric and tropical with dank pine resin in the finish as well as a sweet caramal malt backbone. Juicy and quenching, with a slightly dry finish. You would have no idea that it is 9.5. Outstanding beer.

Poured from the bomber, nice cloudy orange. Smells fantastic tropical and citrus. Taste is spicy citrus, gritty, tropical and dry at the end, this is one of the best of the Citra beers that have been popping up recently, really done well.

bobinlondon (1286) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2016
Bottle. Many thanks to Rian for bringing this back from across the pond and sharing. Amber orange with an off white head. Pungent Citra and high alcohol mash aroma. Flavour is resinous, piny hops and sweet juicy alcoholic malts, in great balance. Carbonation is natural, lively but smooth. Excellent.

Hazy deep amber beer, good cream colour head. Mild skunk, orange and crystallised fruits on the nose. Palate is smooth but has good fine carbonation. Semi sweet creamy malts. Hop spice. Spicy orange. Orange resin. Marmalade and floralness. Trace of skunk. Smooth finish. Lovely stuff, would love to try one super fresh.

DuchessOfIowa (157) - Iowa, USA - AUG 17, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Nice citrus, pineapple, and slight pine. Orange breaking golden on the edges with a pillowy white head that laces healthy. Good amount of sweetness that turns to a nice dry and bitter quality for balance.

Great display of citra hop. Bottle from Binny’s-Skokie. Great drinking, with citrus hop well tamed for a DIPA.
