(22oz bomber thanks to bu11zeye) deep copper, soapy white bubbles. Nose of honey, light citrus bitterness, funky, cream, smells nice. Taste of simcoe even though it’s not, lemon, grapefruit, honey. Like it cause it tends towards sweet. Oily body. jgb9348 (6268) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2012
Nice deep copper coloured body with an amber glow and a thick, three centimetre tall tan head - very nice looking, especially for an IPA. Aroma of bright grassy and herbal hops with a bit of sugars, some caramel and a bunch of malt noticeable. Light to Medium-bodied; Grassy and herbal hoppiness up front that fades fairly quickly and just shows malt, caramel, cardboard and a bit of light earth at the end. Aftertaste is fairly simple with only malt and a touch of grassy and earthy hops noticeable. Overall, not such a great beer, I’ve had other single hop citra productions that were much better in showcasing the hops, but this one is a bit flat, one dimensional and doesn’t show enough of the hops to really get through. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from BevMo! in San Bruno, California on 05-March-2012 for US$3.99 sampled at home in Washington before heading back out to California in a few hours, on 30-April-2012.

Bottle; not expecting too much. Poured a dark amber color with not much head. Aroma was pungent and quite good. Grapefruit, citrus, caramel, earth and fruity yeast. Flavor was ok, not great. Earthy and citrus, but maybe lacking a little something special. AlexanderJanku (110) - Randers, DENMARK - DEC 1, 2011
Medium white foam, medium yellow in color with orange’ish notes. smells of mango, tropical fruits, citrusy.
taste overwhelms the mouth with both bitterness and notes of tropical fruits. clear citrus and even grapefruit. fills out the mouth with bitterness in a pleasent way. long aftertaste of citrus and bitterness Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 2, 2011
Bomber pours clear copper with off white head. The aroma offers up grapefruit, resiny bitter hops, a touch of acidity, sweeter malt notes, orange juice and orange peel. The taste is much the same with grapefruit, tangelo and orange like citrus hop notes mixing with lighter sweet malts flavors in the background. At times the hops get fairly bitter and the resininess helps to create a somewhat dry finish.
