Nice pale orange color, Solid head. Citra hops dominate the aroma, fresh, tropical, citrus, and mango. Some pine and malt balanced. Tastes like it smells. Amazing, flavor. Refreshing, mango, grapefruit that plays nicely with the malt. Very drinkable, very good

Pours a light orange with nice tight foam. The citra hops really come through in the aroma, lots of grapefruit and tangerine. Again the citra comes through strong in the taste, but leaves room to play with the light malt notes. The finish leaves you with more citrus but is very clean. This is a very session able beer.

Medium / light body with a mild amount of carbonation. The flavor begins with fruit, tangerine, mild toast and a bit of malty sweetness. The finis has lots of grapefruit and tangerine. Promising start to the fest here.

My recommendation: You don’t necessarily have to wait for the bottles to arrive, (hopefully 2 months?), bars and restaurants around Cedar Rapids and Iowa City continually have TG brews on tap, or make the trip to Decorah and get it as fresh as you can. These guys are the real deal!

Growler. Medium orange pour, nice spotty lacing and carbonation with an aroma nice floral hops. Flavor is lightly creamy oranges, hints of a little resiny pine and finished with a nice balance of malt & lemon hop bite. Pretty nice, and worth the $10/growler.

Thanks to Ekroper for the growler took to RBWG, shared by Adam (Burg326). Adam shared so many great beers and is also an awesome guy to drink with, like everyone there. Fuck yeah, I love me some fresh citra. Lots of tropical fruits and citrus, lightly resinous, and a very light sweetness. Awesome Iowa Beer.

Thanks to Ekroper for the growler took to RBWG, however once I shared it with 3 people and I took a sip of it I became selfish and kept the rest for my personal enjoyment. Poured a light orange color with huge citra aromas. Flavors are the same amazing citrus flavors. This was a great beer, that I hope they bottle soon.
