3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasty beer, for sure, but it wasn’t what I expected. I expected lots of CITRUS, but I only detected a little, mainly in the finish (blended with the bitterness). I did, however, get a big blast of perfume, rose petals and plant stems. Malts were bready, cracker-like and complementing enough. But the citrus characteristics were not as bold as they’re made out to be, especially with a name like Citrus IPA. Regardless, it’s a solid beer.
Appearance: Almost clear medium bright copper. Finger of white foam.
Nose: Orange zest. Sweet malt. Bits of spice and just a touch of bitter
Taste: Mostly a orange citrus hop presence over a medium sweet malt body. A bit of zing, for lack of a better way of putting it. very nice.
Body: Medium without much fanfare
Parting thoughts: a very nice IPA. Orange in a pleasant way without becoming overwhelming.

Bomber from Tavour. Big nose of citrus, spicy and soapy hops. Some tropical fruit in there as well...more in the flavor. Sorachi Ace is a weird hop with a citrus IPA, but it works here. Moderately bitter with a dry bittersweet finish. Gerbeer (4015) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2016
650 ml bottle. Pours amber with moderate head. Aromas of sweet malts, muddled tropical fruit, dough and limes. Flavors of peppery citrus, tropical fruit spruce, doughy malts and dill. Light bitter spicy finish. Super stuff. chriszfat (84) - Lake stevens, Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2015

On Tap at the Everett Craft Beer fest Orange amber with anice sandy colored head. Lots of good fresh hop aroma and a interesting citrus twist. Nice variation on the style.

22 Oz bottle pour, purchased at the brewery. Pours a bright golden color with a fizz ring head. These guys impress me more and more each day. Nice fruity flavor here. Like a fruity cereal taste with a light bitter hop finish. Nice citrus summer IPA. Good stuff. deyholla (12256) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2015
On tap at the Hop Shop Ballard. Pours a clear yellow gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a combination of earthy and sweet citrus with a straw backbone. Flavor has more sweet citrus with a bit of bitterness and a straw backbone. tcon25 (941) - Duvall, Washington, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Bottle pour at a BBQ, I think this is the first time they bottled this one. Very nice cities flavor, another nice beer from them. jsnicholas (680) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - JUN 26, 2015
Bottle (22oz) Light clear golden. Big white head. Nice citrus aroma. Taste was all kinds of fruit but with a peel bitterness in the end. There seems to be a slightly metallic taste in the end too. Pretty nice overall. Would prefer in 12oz portions. WABeerFiend (426) - - JAN 17, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2015 I gave this a 2.1 overall score on 08.16.14. I probably had a dead IPA. REREVIEW: Bomber dated 06.17.15. Poured into a tulip on 08.14.15. A: Orange, herbs, rose, and candied lemon. It’s very unique. It’s like a soft perfume. A: 1 finger head fades to a ring and very thin spots of foam. Hazy reddish orange body. T: Follows the nose. Herbs, orange, and rose dominate. Candied lemon and vanilla are subtle. P: Creamy smooth with a crisp finish. It’s pretty light and fluffy in the mouth. O: I expected something like Citrusinensis, which is good, but this is on another level.
