3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft after the foosball game. Nose is tropical and slightly danky. Taste is similar without a biting pithy bitterness. A sizable malt backbone to support the hops. A touch of warming but not hot. Woot.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler from Canalís in Lawrenceville, NJ. Pours a brilliant copper color with a small creamy beige head with nice lacing. Aroma is fresh floral hops with notes of pine and citrus. Toasted malt flavor is dominated by the complex hop flavors that include orange, basil, pine and black pepper. The flavors are clean and distinct and as a result, the 9% alcohol is barely noticeable. Tremendous DIPA with great flavor.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2013 Guessing at the hop varietal based on heavy citrus overtones. No info at bar. Could use a bit more caramel to keep up with the bright citrus that hits upfront but quickly dissolves to a hollow finish

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught. Pours an amber color with a moderate white head. Nose has a bit of a feet smell, which is really off-putting. Taste is slightly bitter with just a hint of sweetness on the back end of this; not quite licorice, but in that general family.

Pours a clear golden brown on tap with a filmy off-white head that leaves good lacing on the way down. Aroma is fresh citra hops, tropical citrus with a hint of grass. Taste follows with more grass and a clean bitter finish. Good stuff.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
16oz Growler from Beverage World. Served at around 40-45F.
Pours clear amber with a two finger white head that leaves nice drippy lacing and recedes to a small foamy cap.
Aroma is all Citra, like smelling whole leaf Citra hops. Tropical fruits, big time citrus, bread and some caramel malt underneath. Very good strength.
Flavor is citrusy hops, grapefruit rind, tropical fruits, resinous hops, bready malt, some caramel sweetness to balance the good bitterness. Alcohol is there but rather quiet for a 9% ABV brew.
Mouthfeel is medium-plus bodied, creamy, chewy, good carbonation.
Had the Philly Beer Week version of Ranch a while back and liked it a lot, this Citra one is even better. Literally like smelling whole cone Citra hops. Awesome stuff!
