Bottled. An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of caramel, malt, citrus fruits, and hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, hops, and straw, leaing to a bitter finish RoJo28 (128) - - JAN 12, 2018
Ok. I’m the first to admit I’m struggling to write this review. It’s the beers fault. It lulled me into a false sense of security with a friendly subtle sweetness, then BAM, my vocabulary is shot. It’s... delicious

Ok mellow DIPA. thatjester (7) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2017 does not count
Poured into Spieglau IPA glass from 500ml bottle.
This is another beer from New Zealand that I had high expectations for. And, boy, did it deliver.
With beautiful citrus aromas and a clean, rather bright colour for an IIPA, I could tell this beer was going to be different. Compared to, say, Pirate Life's IIPA, which has a hard-hitting malt backbone, Liberty Brewing Co's Citra is fruiter, more American in style. Yet, what struck me the most; for a 9%, IIPA, this beer was crisp, it was refreshing. The ABV did not drown out flavour. The flavours are intense, as you'd expect, but the crisp, refreshing nature of this IIPA makes it dangerously drinkable for a beer that comes in at 3.6 standard drinks per half litre.

On tap at Brewski. Pours clear amber with thin white head that still gave decent lacing. Nice mix of caramel malt and fruity citrus hop from aroma through to the palate leading to a spicy, broad bitter finish
