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.

Strong aromatics! Peaches, melons, some mint, lychee. Zesty. Minty and tropical on the tongue. Incredibly soft on the palate with a juicy hop attack that leaves fruit on the palate. Not a hop onslaught, just tons of hop flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

650ml bottle pours a hazy tan color with a bit of head. Nice well balanced hop profile. Gets a little diluted at the end.

4 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s taproom. Consumed on 3-21-15. Supplemented by a 16 oz. pour later. Pours a creamy, cloudy, opaque, light orange-ish, golden tan. Beige head. Looks cool. Musty, dusty aroma; armpit scent. Strong, fresh, piney smell. Piney, grassy, herbal taste. A touch of lemon, grapefruit, and blood orange. Fresh lemonade and lemon-flavored vitamin flavors. The malts are quite light. Really pleasant hoppiness. Nice, pungent taste. Wet dirt finish. Lingering pine needle and herbs. Herbal, dry aftertaste. Soft in the palate. Reasonably lively and a bit chewy. Palate effects are slightly above average but not awesome; the aftertaste elevates the palate effects. Very nice beer, one of the better APAs I have had, with a good set of hops. That said, it didn’t utterly blow me as it does some people. I slightly preferred the similar Easy Rider Pale Ale in the same flight. Gets a bit boring upon many sips, costing it a point in overall score.

RRistow12 (365) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Tasted from draft. Pours a slightly hazy gold with white head. Insane fruity aroma. Grapefruit, lemon, passion fruit, mango blend of tropical and citrus fruits. Taste is definitely fruity as well with some floral notes. Not quite as good as zombie dust though which is also a citra single hop beer. Definitely one of the best IPAs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

suprchunk (2474) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Clear gold colored pour. Small white head. Plenty of lacing. Citrus piney hop notes. A taste is a watered down version of the same. Not much body. Thin. Vapid.

22oz bottle in a teku. Pours hazy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of strong citrusy and lightly fruity hops, some pale and light caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same with a great hoppiness. Average texture. A really good pale ale.

Bottle from Justin. Thanks, brother. Pours mostly clear pale yellow with some head with medium sized bubbles. Nose is lemon, orange jello powder, key limes, pine, pale malt. Flavor is similar. This is the first beer where I get distinct flavors from lemon, orange, and lime with a beautiful mouth feel. Finish is perfect mild last citrus bitterness.
