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.

Bomber thanks to joshmcg000. Slightly hazy gold pour with a 2 finger, creamy off white head that has good retention and leaves a little lacing. Aroma is loaded with tropical fruit, sweet citrus and some pine, small amounts of perfumey floral notes. A little toast, biscuit and maybe a hint of caramel are there if you really stick your nose in it, but mostly just awesome, fruity hops. Flavor is similarly full of tropical fruit, lots of pineapple and passion fruit, some nice ripe melon, citrus and a hint of pine. Aside from hoppy, fruity notes there are light, but pleasant notes, of biscuit, caramel, toast, sweet apple, a little bread and just enough minerality to the finish to give it a pleasant crispness. Medium body, with a nice, creamy entry, moderate strength, blanketing carbonation and off dry, crisp finish. Fantastic, beer, perfectly drinkable, nearly flawless execution and loaded with hops. After reviewing Zombie Dust a few days ago and this little gem today, I may be a bit spoiled on Citra APA’s. Thanks Josh!

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.

Sweet Christ, thank you Santa!!! Big thanks to Clownoisseur for a huge 64oz growler... Gotta be one of the best pale ales I’ve ever had, even with reduced carbonation. Bright super citrus and grapefruit aromas with some resinous pine and cleanness. Flavor is bright and bitter, smooth and drinkable. Citrus and more grapefruit, more pine, earthy green. It’s easily one of the most enjoyable beers I’ve had in a looong time. Thanks again, Brandon.

nellycale (205) - Caledonia, Minnesota, USA - JAN 12, 2015
On tap at TG taproom. Pours an orangish golden hue with a half 1/2 in white head. Good lacing. Aroma of orange and melon and homey. Very fruity. Taste is similar. Dank hops, orange, floral, melon and some honey sweetness from the malts to balance this out. This is the type of pale ale I am looking for! And only 30 min. from my hometown. Love it. My favorite pale ale! But haven't had Zombie Dust yet.. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pseudo sue Bottle: Thanks Madseeg: Served in a shaker: Medium sized creamy head. Cloudy dark yellow more orange colored beer. Aroma has loads of exotic fruit, lots of pine apple, some citrus, peach, passion fruit, etc. lots of hop fruits and hop flowers. Very nice aroma! Flavour is also nice hoppy and good hoppy fruit, exotic fruits and different citrussy and piney fruits. Good stuff! Aftertate is again good fruity with some nice hop tones and bitters. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, bit more than medium bodied and a creamy texture. Delicious stuff, and it’s not even super fresh!
