Nephilium (1728) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2012
This starts out with a huge grapefruit aroma, and pours a clear amber with a full white head. Big hop flavor here, with grapefruit and a tropical sweetness. Nice lingering bitter finish. Overall a really good American Pale Ale, and one I would highly recommend. Im curious what some of the other single hop series tasted like.

Capa (2860) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - DEC 4, 2016
Juicy citrus hops, some resin, and more tropical fruit. Medium Bodied. Enough malt presence to keep it standing. A very nice single hop IPA.

Fantastically well rounded beer. Well made, big on flavour but also balanced and just quite refreshing. This is a connoisseurs WCIPA.

BillKismet (3887) - 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.

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, thats all right. Single-Hopped with Citra, with all the concomitant plusses and minuses. On the up side, theres 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. Its not strong, but its definitely there, and it prevents this from crossing over into world-class territory. (15/20)

Aroma: mix of fruit and some dank notes; Appearance: clear golden pour with white head that lingers; Taste: follows nose with additional bitterness; Palate: medium body with long, bitter finish; Overall: can appreciate the high quality but not my favorite version of an IPA.

For some reason, all the Citra beers Ive had lately have been West Coast style Imperial bombs. Absolutely no complaints about that, but its always nice to visit a less aggressive representation of the hop. Extra Citra Pale is less aggressive, yes, but no less aromatic or juicy. It smells like grapefruit, pineapple, cannabis, and pine trees. Flavor isnt quite as tropical as the nose, but the grapefruit, lemon, and passion fruit flavors come out strong and bright. A bit of bitterness, but its the user-friendly kind. Another lovely hop-forward brew from Knee Deep.

Great beer great price I got this bomber for 3.50 from beer 101. For value it is fantastic. The nose is very citrus heavy and taste much the same. Not to bitter and really liked the head retention. Great beer would drink often!

HuskerTan (1803) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Bottle. A- Pineapple, papaya, grapefruit, tropical fruits, super dank. A- Orange color, clear liquid, off white head. T- Dank, tropical fruits, subtle pine, bitter. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, slight bitter finish. O- The aroma is out of this world. On par with Toppling Goliath pseudoSue and 3 Floyds Zombie Dust. Taste is a little more aggressive with bitterness and dankness. Pretty good but not quite perfect.
