This is wow on every level great pour great flavours great everything find a bottle and enjoy hawthorne00 (3952) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle. Pale gold with an inch of white head. 3+ Aroma of grapefruit, herbal lemon more than lime - it’s almost like the grapefruit has been put under the grill to caramelise it a little. 7+ Sweetish and slightly biscuity with lots of nice citrus and some herbal touches. Didn’t get much in the way of tropical fruit. Bitterness is a little lower than expected but it’s about enough. An agreeable beer but - for me - way too much alcohol for what it offers. crispaire (238) - - DEC 27, 2016
pours a hazy orange from the tap. incredibly fragrant citrus hop bomb. smells like a freshly plucked orange/grapefruit off the tree with a hint of guava. flavors follow suit with juicy pungency. lively palate with a bitter finish. theswiftsa (88) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 25, 2016
Bottle. Pours an opaque light Amber. Nose is incredible dank, grapefruit, stonefruit and marmalade notes. Taste is big grapefruit flavours upfront, light pale malts and a nice bitter finish that’s not overpowering. Really shows off the citra variety. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 20, 2016
22 oz bottle. Bottled on 11/24/15. Thanks Timo A!

Hazy golden color with a small white head.
Sweet citrusy and fruity hops, dryness and malt in the aroma.
The flavor is... dry malt, leafy hops and some cardboard. This is not right. I shouldn’t be rating this old IPA. But will I ever get this fresh? Probably not in Finland. Needs definitely a rerate.
Juicy citrus hops, some resin, and more tropical fruit. Medium Bodied. Enough malt presence to keep it standing. A very nice single hop IPA. jonno (2761) - JAPAN - DEC 4, 2016
Fantastically well rounded beer. Well made, big on flavour but also balanced and just quite refreshing. This is a connoisseurs WCIPA. BillKismet (4064) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 2, 2016
Poofy, off-white head atop an amber body. Wonderful leafy hop aroma, imbued with pine, foresty notes, and zesty orange bitterness. Lusciously flavored with forest and orange citrus hops. Wet. Good balancing of the hops by the crystal malt backbone. Moderately bitter. Juicy splash of forest and citrus on the finish. UXO (1896) - CANADA - NOV 16, 2016
Appearance: clear pale amber with two fat fingers of fluffy ivory head, excellent retention and sticky soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: grapefruit, resiny pine, tropical fruit, slight vegetal/onion. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry clean bitter finish. (4/5)
Well, that’s all right. Single-Hopped with Citra, with all the concomitant plusses and minuses. On the up side, there’s a decent pithy grapefruit citrus leading the way, with some pleasant, almost dank resiny pine, and pineapple-y tropical fruit tones. The down side is the all-too-common green oniony note that Citra can impart. It’s not strong, but it’s definitely there, and it prevents this from crossing over into world-class territory.
