COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American IPA bursting with citrus aromas and flavors. You’ll 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.

This is a great, simple beer. Only one hop... The amazing citra. Taste the fruitiness in its character and enjoy.

12 oz Bottle. Appearance is clear amber color with medium, off-white head. Aroma is heavy in the citra hops--mango, passion fruit, grapefruit with some floral evident as well. Taste is pretty one-sided with mostly hop bitterness present. Some malty sweet comes across as fruitiness but the balance is definitely weighted bitter. Palate is medium-bodied, slick texture, dry finish. The beer seems like it’s just trying to show off the citra without much imagination along with it.

From a bottle. Loght golden body with a big pungent sweet resin aroma. Lots of citrus flavor, but I also get a hint of onion taste. Not really digging the savory flavors or the hint of onion. Maybe this would be a good beer to cook with. Not one of the better citra hop examples

Bottle. Murky light orange pour. Citrus and pine aroma and taste. This doesn’t seem fresh - bet it would be much better fresh.

osu97gp (677) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Pours a hazy orange with a minimal white head. Aroma of citrus hops and light fruit. Flavor of pine and citrus hops with some light malts in the background. Some warming from the alcohol...somewhat surprising for the %.

Bottle. Definitely has the uncanny citra hop nose. Lemony and passion fruit aroma. Flavor is not as spectacular though still good. Lemony, very grassy, and quite body odor-y.

I could have gotten a bad batch, however, by and large this beer does not impress. Don’t 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 don’t 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.
