Sampled on draft during the GTMW2013 festivities. Pours a nice orangish golden color with small white head. Aroma of big citra hops notes: citrus, tangerine, pine, touches of grass. Flavor is very delicious: nice grapefruit, tangerine and mango notes. Fair bitterness awash in the fruity hoppy deliciousness. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Finishes mildly bitter.

Bottle at Bruce’s, big thanks to Ryan. It pours hazy golden-orange with a medium white head. The nose is crisp, floral, grassy, pine, creamy orange, sherbet and faint menthol. The taste is crisp, grass, light herbal, crisp citrus, orange, grapefruit, white grape, floral and pine with a dry, crisp finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Brilliant balance. Eminently drinkable. Wow!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
22oz bottle, Steasy66 tasting at CBC Islington. Massive thanks to Ryan for this one!. It pours a peachy orange body with a soapy white head. Aroma is truly great with loads of super-fresh hops. Citrusy with orange and loads of pineapple notes. Some leafs and grass. Taste is hugely hoppy and fruity, but not excessively bitter. More citrusy notes and some pineapple and grass. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, top notch APA.

Bottle shared at Bruce’s in London - massive thanks to Ryan for bringing this over. Pours mostly clear gold with a frothy, white cap. Nose of delicate citrus, pale malts a bit of dank sweat. Light to medium sweet flavor with lots of dank, lightly dried citrus fruits, a bit of grapefruit. Light to medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Nice dryness to finish, moderate sweetness, great pale malt balance, light pine, orange, grapefruit. Outstanding. Absolutely world class.

Bottles cheers to Ryan. Wowee. Amazing stuff. Such a big and tangy citrus hop hit to it. Very floral and grassy too. Fair bit of grapefruit in the taste with an overdose of stone and citric hops. Very bitter right down the middle of the palate. Very, very good

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber, huge thanks to Ed. This is a showcase of the Citra hop. Grapefruit, pith, pine, big citrus character. The hop profile dominates and does not let the malts show. Very drinkable.
