American IPA bursting with citrus aromas and flavors. Youíll find evidence of tangerine, grapefruit, orange and mango in the aroma from the multiple additions of a single hop variety, Citra. There is also a nice malt balance in this bitter, full bodied, doglicious IPA that is a citrus lovers delight.

I could have gotten a bad batch, however, by and large this beer does not impress. Donít call your IPA a Citra based IPA if you load it with Cascade. I am not sure if they did, but dry hop some Citra to bring out that tropical flavor and smell profile, in my opinion. Good initial aroma hints of passionfruit, citrus, maybe some mango, but the smell does not carry through on taste. First taste is met with a boring and, in the grand scheme of things, overbearing piney taste, no doubt from the over used Cascade Hops. Really it reminds me a lot of Sierra Nevada Torpedo, but with about 1% less abv, so you donít really get to even enjoy what you are enjoying. Save 2 bucks and gain a total of 6% abv by buying a Sierra Nevada Torpedo IPA six pack.

Pour from bottle, excellent tan-gold color. Extremely fruity aroma. Pungent apple and tangerine with a taming malt. Wonderful, dynamic hoppy fruit aroma. Tastes much like smell, apple and tangerine, with a sticky hop duality that matches it. Nice caramel malt presence to even it all out. Delicious.

Nice crisp bitter pine and grapefruit nose with a solid malt backbone noticeable in the aroma. Medium-bodied; Strong rich and fragrant hoppy notes dominate with some nice caramel malt and light sugars of lemon and passionfruit. Aftertaste shows a good blend of malt and hops with a lot of bitter resinous hops at the finish. Overall, a very nice IPA based with those citra hops that show off a lot of tropical fruit and resinous notes of sugars. I sampled this large pint (served in a mug) on cask at The Spotted Pig in New York, New York on 07-November-2014 for US$10,00.

bottle @ Jungle Jimís / Eastgate OH --- Hazy medium amber color, frothy 2" white head, pillows of lace. Aroma of orange malt. Taste begins with malt, adds orange on the swallow, then a strong grapefruit hop on the medium finish. A big, hoppy brew, assertive and satisfying.

355ml bottle from New Beer Distributors, New York

Pours orange with a smooth head. Aroma of citrus, caramely malts, tangy grapefruits and grass. Taste is crisp, citrusy and sweetish with notes of grapefruit, grass and caramel. Finish is crisp, citrusy and hoppy with some sweet maltiness. Okay, a bit too sweet and malty.

Pours hazy oranged gold with a fat white head that fades to a bubbles rim and coating with dry lacing. Aroma is grassy grapefruit with a touch of sweetness. Taste is mostly citrus hops on a bed of mild malts. Notes of both sweet pineapple and grapefruit feed the hop bitterness. Nice citra showcase. Spicy, prickly mouthfeel. Very nice.
