A citrus explosion. Small white head, beer has an orangeish hue. Aroma is strong citrus, orange/grapefruit with no plastic undercurrents, nice. Taste is high citrus hops, grapefruit, yet still balanced, with good viscosity. Finish lingers but not as long nor as pronounced as I would of thought from the hop content. Very nice beer.

koleminer20 (3599) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 9, 2016
Shared at an Ann Arbor get together at Jeff’s on July 20. Poured from a can, I can’t recall is it was a 12 or crowler. The pour is a clear-ish golden yellow with a big white head that slowly falls, leaving a couple spots of lace. The aroma is pretty good. There is a nice dank citra hop up front with a lot of bitter rind and pine resin. This isn’t anything like I was expecting for a citra IPA. The flavor is much of the same. There is a little more juiciness to it, but it’s really dank, bitter, and dry. The mouth feel is thinner and light with a decent carbonation and a lingering bitter finish. It’s really interesting. I don’t think I’ve ever had a citra beer this dank and bitter.

luttonm (6281) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 29, 2016
Can in Seattle. Huge thanks to Pruf, best of the box so far! Thin foamy head, hazy clean orange. Delicious fruit, clean and very fresh. Pineapple, mild pith, sweet and juicy. Modest bitter with a clean, sharp alcohol helping to balance it all. A touch of resin at finish, coating. Terrific and delicious.

Almost clear gold pour with a white head. Great lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, dank, melon rind, and lightly herbal. Taste is citrus zest, under ripe melon, dank, and floral. Grapefruit aftertaste. Dry finish. Very good.
