3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Mostly clear orange pour with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. I stick my nose into the glass and find a grapefruit rind/marijuana/sweaty armpit collection of odors. Well, at least there’s the grapefruit component to sort of "save the day." Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor provides a stream of malty toffee and caramel flowing alongside heavy, rindy, hop bitterness. Nicely-balanced overall, but the hops are really the stars of this show. Finishes modestly bitter, tongue-numbing and grassy. Big-time thanks to the always-generous BBB63 for floating this bottle my way!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2014 A citra IPA on steroids. For me this pretty much hits every mark for the citra dipa style.
Deep orangeish pour nice foamy white head. The smell is juicy with a limited malt sweetness and tons of citrus, melon, tropical. Like a mix of NvU with a suped-up ZD. The flavor is where this one is just awesome. A medium to high bitterness which has been absent on some other citra-based beers I have had. The flavor has some bitter citrus rind, tropical notes, almost berryness, and not much malt backbone, only enough to carry the hop flavors. IMO it gets more tropical as it warms. Really a citrus-forward ipa with a high bitterness. Love it a ton.
