This single hop ale showcases the Citra hop. Named for the largest T-rex fossil ever discovered, she roars with ferocious aromas of grapefruit, citrus, mango and evergreen. Delicate in body with a mild bite in the finish.

Admin Note: Previously brewed as a 5.8% ABV offering, current and future batches are listed at 7% ABV per a tweak and translating the beer to a larger 30 bbl system. Tweaks may continue to change this ABV slightly as they settle on an official end product.

ElGaucho (2320) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - OCT 9, 2015
Bottle procured by Falco242. Pungent hop aroma like sticking your nose near a bag of hops. Hazy dark gold; thin ring of head. Incredibly well balanced. This is like a session IPA without the thinness. Not overly carbonated. I can understand the hype to a certain degree. It’s truly an impeccable APA. However I’m a little surprised beer geeks are going so nuts for a non-big beer. Maybe palates are maturing.

Pours in cloudy golden with a large white head. Aroma; Citrus, mango, grapefrui, apricot and pine notes. Pretty well carbonated with flavours of citrus, pine, grapefruit, apricot with a clear mango and bitter finish! A really nice well balamced beer.

_angst_ (3726) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle courtesy of Hackobock. Thanks man! 3.5 months old according to the print on the bottle so expectations are rather low. Pours hazy tiny burnt deep yellow with a rather small offwhite head that slowly dissipates while leaving some sparse spotty trace on the glass. Smell is fruity and grassy with crackers, white bread, grapefruit juice, mango, pineapple, lychee, moist grass, pine needles, leek, orange zest and lemon zest. Taste is tiny sweet, tiny bitter, fruity and grassy. Mouthfeel is soft, round, tiny astringent and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with crackers, grapefruit juice, mango, pineapple, passion fruit, star fruit, lychee, prickly pear, moist grass, pine needles, minerals and lemon zest. While its apparent the hops have faded from age this is still a damn good bright hoppy beer. No cardboard oxidation and pretty much the perfect malt base to give the hops room to shine. Basically drinks like bright tropical fruit juice. Hope to try this fresh at some point. I suspect it’ll blow me away.

asedzie (713) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 1, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy golden, small white dense head with lacing. Nose has maltiness and a light passionfruit scent, not as strong as expected - I’ve had this on tap and it had a much more assertive aroma, not sure why. Flavor is rich malt background, creamy, textured pale barley malt flavors - really good- with a middle and finish that are packed with lightly resiny pine and citrus hop notes. A really nice wash of dank alpha acids lingers extremely long in the finish along with a bit of bitterness.

Hos Johan w. Pigg och citrustoner. Ren och delikat. Hög hinkabilitet. Mycket välgjord. Len och fin beska. Försöker gå igenom förra helgens Sbwf 2015, vilket de flesta av oss var nöjda med.

fraternie (935) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Tons of citrus here, with a blast of stone fruit flavor of orange, apricot and peach, hints of grapefruit, lingering long with crisp, refreshing, lightly spicy hops. Fruit flavors keep pumping. Best pale I’ve ever tasted.
