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.

Wow. What a great beer! As one who’s had his share of IPAs, I find it hard to be bowled over by yet one more IPA--but this is not just one more IPA! The first thing that hits you is that glorious nose of grapefruit and herbs, and the flavor and the mouthful live up to the promise in that first impression. Proof that an IPA doesn’t have to be over the top in ABV or IBU to be truly satisfying. I wish I lived in Iowa where I could have access to this regularly.

Pours hazy amber with a frothy head. Aroma is crazy complex; mango, citrus, sweet tropical fruits, resin, and pine. Aroma-wise this is basically perfect, absolutely begging to be tasted. Big, sweet, in-your-face citrus balanced by the piney resin notes of the hops and the smooth malts. This and Zombie Dust are both incredible, and basically interchangeable in my book. Delicious. Cannot recommend enough.

Hazed yellow gold. Creamy head at first. Blazing juicy aroma, tropical, citrus.Dry toast caramel.Sweetness. Same In taste, juicy, kinda on the sweet side. Sweet hops possibly. Lemon. mango- and first time Ive ever noticed mango so noticeable. Dry toast caramel light, grassy lemon bitter, tart finish but balanced with sweet. bottle about a week old I belive, nice. Good pale ale great hop vibrancy and freshness, solid, yet I don’t think its one of my top 10 pale ales.

Bottle shared by My friend Eric at Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours dark golden with a nice white head and a magnificent citrus aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with a lot of grapefruit and a mellow pine finish. Nicely crafted

OmegaX (1340) - Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle from sister-in-laws boyfriend. Nose is juicy citrus and tropical fruit. Huge hop aroma. Flavor is full on citrus with a light malt bite to even it out. Pale ale? Maybe that’s what they call it. More like an IPA, but who knows or cares now a days. It’s a damn fine brew.

Tap at brewery. Hazed golden pour. Great nose of tropical fruits. Tastes of honey dew, peach, mango, earthy hops, resin, and grass. Smooth easy drinking palate. Listed as 5.8 from brewery. Really delicious.

Big, blasting citrus aroma is out of the bottle even before the pour begins. But the taste and aftertaste are remarkably light, attributable to its 50 IBU. Great summer beer.
