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.

Tasted at RBSG grand tasting. 22oz bottle. Mostly clear golden, slight orange color. Thin ring of bubbly off-white head, some bits of lace. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, light sweet. Good zesty grapefruit hop. Moderate bitter taste, dry finish. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Kind of a prickly texture. Solid big hoppy pale ale.

Bomber from trade. Huge thanks! Pours clear golden with a hint of orange and a beautiful creamy fluffy white head. Aroma of big Citra hops, pineapple mango grapefruit, grass and piney notes, sweet honey. Oh yes. The flavor. Oh my god. Lightly sweet maltiness with massive pineapple mango hop presence, very light bitter. Some super raw hop vegetal notes. Juicy and resinous, easy going, medium plus carbonation , lightly dry finish. Oh my lord. I got goosebumps when this first hit my lips. Expected this to be very good but maybe not quite live up to the hype. I was wrong--this is essentially perfect. I don't know where to knock any points off at all.

Look: pours a honey color. Clear. Bright white head. Smell: skunky, citrus. Mango pineapple.. Taste: slight bitterness but still balanced. Mango. Passion fruit. Pineapple. Feel: good carbonation. Leaves a thin film on the mouth. Slight dry makes you want more. Overall: great beer. Good for a hot day. Wonderful flavor!!!

Bottle. Pours lightly hazy amber with almost no head and low carbonation. Aroma is very sweet and sticky tropical fruit: mega lychee, mango, light pine. Taste is sweet malt, orange, and pineapple, with slightly soapy finish. Very low carbonation makes this taste maltier and sweeter than it otherwise might. Reminds me of some Three Floyds and Stone IPAs. Standout is the nose. Good, but to me lacks the balance of Zombie Dust.

Shared Bomber with SHERM1016.....thanks!!! Pours a slightly foggy yellow with a nice clingy head. Nose and initial taste is the sweet (call in New England) hops. Sweet grapefruit / mango edge to these hops. Very mild but very tasty. Excellent.
