dresden (1380) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016
Hazy golden orange with a very tight foamy head. Aroma is tropical fruit, well citra.... Delicious and no signs of alcohol. Lots of single hop ipa out there but this is just very very good

Cybercat (4985) - Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2016
Pours hazy apricot with a thick eggshell head. Aroma delivers strong resiny, woody hop and yeasty tones plus a snip of malt. Bold flavor features evergreen hops, fresh malt, citrus and yeasty tones. Mouthfeel offers firm fizz and body. Hail to the King!

joeneugs (5486) - Livermore, California, USA - JUL 9, 2016
Bottle dated 6/24/16. It pours a hazy pale orange color with a thick, creamy white head. The aroma has lots of juicy grapefruit, hints of pineapple and grass. Very soft pale maltiness in the background. Really nice juicy hop character. The flavor is the same with big grapefruit, pineapple and some hop spice in the finish, but the bitterness is low. Maybe a touch of hop related astringency on the palate, but overall itís pretty creamy on the palate with mostly pale malt. No distracting caramel. A very good showcase of Citra. Worthy of the hype.

kaser (5502) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2016
Bright yellow pour from 22oz bottle at home. White fluffy head. Juicy and pineapple grapefruit aroma. Taste is hoppy, vanilla, tropical and pine. Lemon. Super good.

thepatrickman (714) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - APR 13, 2016
From notes (6/6/15). This is a big, swirling citrus bomb with a really potent amount of juicy, Citra hop notes. One crazy good DIPA.

Amazing Citra hop aroma. The hop flavor was not as balanced as I would like.

Christpuncher (2697) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2016
Aroma is straight citrus. Lots of grapefruit aroma. Flavor is very grapefruit, almost a makes you pucker. Hides the Abv well and is not overly bitter. Great double IPA.

cyano22 (26) - SOUTH KOREA - MAR 18, 2016
Poured from a bottle that was bottled less than two weeks ago. Itís slightly hazy amber color with a thick one inch head. Very good retention. Aroma is citrus rind, apple juice. Floral notes are apparent. Newly mown lawn. Very resiny to the point of aggressiveness. A slight mango notes and sweet fruit notes in the back. Taste is very resiny with solid bready malt backbone. Itís not too malty. Very floral and, again resiny. Very nicely balanced. Dry. Very easy on the tongue and the mouth. Soft carbonation and creamy. Amazing IIPA.

RRistow12 (664) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAR 14, 2016
Tasted from draft. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with white head. Aroma is citrus with some dank resin. Taste is extremely well balanced with nice malt backbone. Great citrus and melon fruity flavor. Just an awesome double IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gription79 (2794) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber, thanks to Ed. Big Citra character throughout, citrusy. There is a good malt backbone that makes this more interesting then a huge hop bomb.
