COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a beer that celebrates the hop! You can’t get fresher or greener than this. Made with freshly picked, whole leaf, “wet hops” these off-the-vine beauties will encourage you to DRINK FRESH, DRINK LOCAL, and DRINK NOW!

The hops varietal changes each year. 2012 is Citra

Beergeek23322 (2268) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - JUL 8, 2013
November 2012. Bottle. Cloudy copper color with an offwhite head. Nice aromas of grapefruit, pine and flowers. Very clean and crisp with plenty of hops on the finish. Outstanding IPA.

mcberko (6474) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 29, 2013
22 oz. bottle, sent from mwgroove23 (thanks Mike), pours a hazy dark-ish orange with a small beige head. Aroma of tropical fruits, especially mangos, butterscotch, and some caramel malt. Flavour tastes very fresh, with notes of mangos, citrusy hops and some butterscotch. Given that it was likely bottled in October or November 2012, it has held up alright, but not optimal. Good stuff.

DiarmaidBHK (3396) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Bottle from Bruisn Ales. Pours orange with a thin white head. Big grapefruit aroma on the nose. Goes down pretty smooth. Tastes a bit leafy on the tongue. Finishes clean and tight. Solid!

Really incredible IPA. The name does not lie. One of the freshest beers I’ve ever tasted. Big, clean dry-hopped flavor.

22oz bomber. Pours a hazy copper color with a one finger of head. Aroma of fresh citrus and floral hops, grass, pine, and peaches. Taste is citrus, pine, lightly earthy notes, tropical fruits, and moderate caramel sweetness.

Bottled. Ah yes, what is it about fresh Citra that just slays me so? Pours amber with a solid head. Fresh dank earth littered with apricots fill the aroma. Yes, a bit sweet for me for an IPA, but so darn drinkable and finishes with both grapefruit and chewing on a fresh pine needle bitterness.

decaturstevo (5015) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Lightly hazed orange pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is citrus/grapefruit and bread. Light citrus flavor with a nice breadiness and a medium smooth citrus bitter. Medium body with good carbonation a nice beer.

cduncan14 (138) - Sandy Springs, Georgia, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Poured from a 750 mL bottle into an IPA glass. Absolutely beautiful aroma of (unsurprisingly) fresh hops. Sweet citrus aromas akin to blood orange, with just a bit of toffee or caramel. A coppery-red color with a foamy white head that sticks around for a while. The flavor is very good, but just a tad muted for a fresh-hop ale. Sweet caramel malts on the front, with some butterscotch. Finishes with a spicy dryness. My biggest gripe with the beer is the mouthfeel. It’s a bit too fizzy and limp in the body to really let all of the subtle hop flavors come through. Overall this is a very tasty IPA, and if you’re a fan of fresh-hopped IPAs this is one well worth trying. If you’re not, this won’t be the one to change your mind.

BeerandBlues2 (9697) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Tap at Max’s Taphouse. Pours lightly hazy gold with a small fizzy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is dank and herbal hops with pear and apple esters, cereal and grain malt. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness with supporting malt and light fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Garbageman (443) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - FEB 10, 2013
From 22oz bomber. Pours orange/golden in color with lingering head. Aroma was all citrusy hops and sweet malt. Taste follows with addition more sweet malt and a little pine. ABV is hidden well. Medium body.
