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.

Really nice orange color on this and massive hop aroma. Overall a pretty well balanced, yet hoppy, delicious pale.

DSG (8175) - Tel Aviv, - MAY 23, 2015
[5/3/15] Draught after Mikkeller Beer Run in Copenhagen. Lovely “green” fruity hops aroma. Flavor of juicy fruity hops. Medium-bodied. Really good,.

mrjaxson (340) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 18, 2015
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.

DrunkSanta410 (527) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy orange / Amber with a nice bubbly head. Aroma is citrus, mango, tropical fruit, faint caramel malts. Taste is nice citrusy and tropical hops, a faint acidity / salinity. Pine notes on the back end. Mild honey sweetness, a bit of toast. Moderately bitter, balanced and clean on the palate. Great pale ale.

Good beer, but not as balanced as I would expect. Bitterness dominated and i felt that hop flavor/aroma was lacking

VsXsV (2685) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2015
Draught. Almost clear golden liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of citrus, fresh hops, bread, grain and light mango. Probably a bit old. Taste is dry and light to medium bitter with notes of fresh hops, bread and citrus. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty nice but probably old.

Ktwse (2607) - SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2015
Pours hazy amber with low white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, grapefruit and passion fruit. Taste is light resin bitter with mango sweet finish. Light smooth body with soft carbonation. Perfect drink after the Mikkeller beer run!

From a bottle into a glass. The pour is a cloudy yellow above average c02 with a white head. This beer taste like juicy mangoes and hops.

Again EricTeusink hooking up the dope IPAs for this tasting. And this was one of the best i’ve had. Pine and citrus in the nose. Juicy citrus fruits and apricot and mango with touches of pine in the taste. Good body. Real nice.
