COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Clear gold colored pour. Small white head. Plenty of lacing. Citrus piney hop notes. A taste is a watered down version of the same. Not much body. Thin. Vapid.

22oz bottle in a teku. Pours hazy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of strong citrusy and lightly fruity hops, some pale and light caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same with a great hoppiness. Average texture. A really good pale ale.

Bottle from Justin. Thanks, brother. Pours mostly clear pale yellow with some head with medium sized bubbles. Nose is lemon, orange jello powder, key limes, pine, pale malt. Flavor is similar. This is the first beer where I get distinct flavors from lemon, orange, and lime with a beautiful mouth feel. Finish is perfect mild last citrus bitterness.

Sweet hop aroma, almost honey. Flavor is also sweet hops. Decent, but not really a long term enjoyment.

22 oz bottle courtesy of pepsican. The pour is a beautiful golden orange with a thick bright white head and some incredibly clingy and soapy lace. The aroma is incredible. The tropical fruits and floral hops are just dynamite. There is a lot of fruity complexity that I was not expecting for a American pale. There is just a hint of a piney resin to let me know there is some good dank hoppiness happening. The flavor is just as incredible. There is a lot tropical fruits, specifically pineapple and mango, the floral hops continue throughout there is a little pine on the back end, which really brings this thing home. The mouth feel is great. Just thick enough with a wonderful carbonation and it hangs around. The aftertaste is great lots of grapefruit and orange. I'm definitely a fan and can't wait for more of TG's brews!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is wonderful, floral, sweet, light pine. Appearance is golden amber, white head. Taste is great, good hop presence, sweet, floral, some citrus, outstanding. Mouthfeel is perfect, not as harsh as a normal pale ale. Overall...unbelievable.

Bomber shared via the bottle while disc golfing. I wish I could’ve taken some time with this one. Fresh, dank hops, tropical, citrus fruits and medium bitterness. Easy drinking, fuck yeah IOWA.

Un corps parfait avec sa combinaison de céréales bien aérés en parfait équilibre entre juteux et résineux. Des fruits tropicaux très mûrs, du sapinage et des agrumes sucrés en quantité. Rien de surprenant.
