3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 750 mL bottle into an IPA glass. Absolutely beautiful aroma of (unsurprisingly) fresh hops. Sweet citrus aromas akin to blood orange, with just a bit of toffee or caramel. A coppery-red color with a foamy white head that sticks around for a while. The flavor is very good, but just a tad muted for a fresh-hop ale. Sweet caramel malts on the front, with some butterscotch. Finishes with a spicy dryness. My biggest gripe with the beer is the mouthfeel. It’s a bit too fizzy and limp in the body to really let all of the subtle hop flavors come through. Overall this is a very tasty IPA, and if you’re a fan of fresh-hopped IPAs this is one well worth trying. If you’re not, this won’t be the one to change your mind.
2017 release. Very juicy lots of great flavors. With some twang of sweetness and interesting flavors. Nice body enjoyable. Balanced and on spot. willisread (3803) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 19, 2017
2017 re-release can from Craft Brewed. Pours a clear amber with a finger of foam that dissipates quickly. Caramel nose with strong pine and resin notes, a touch of orange. Sweet caramel on the palate, piney bitterness. 90s throwback baby...complete waste of Citra. BeerdedDave (2005) - Beckley, USA - DEC 7, 2017
can; clear amber color; great fresh, citrusy hop aroma; great citrusy, fruity hops on a medium bodied bready malt base with light caramel notes Braudog (6906) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 19, 2017
Can. Orange-tinged amber, nice and bubbly, well topped. Definitely carries the "wet hop" character, with a mushy, green flavor profile. Just a hint of a spicy backdrop. Nice Sunday football beer. (#6835, 11/19/2017) oobawa (1865) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 18, 2017
Pretty good Citra IPA, lots of grapefruit, lemondrops, and undertones of green pepper and pine, with a generous caramel malt sweetness underlining the hoppy front. Seems a bit unconcerned with presenting a full-frontal hop assault, instead employing a more crowd-friendly approach, never growing overly juicy or bitter, finishing with a hint of pine and yeast and a gentle citric fade. Grows sweeter as it warms, almost too much so. Somewhat lackadaisical nose gives up minor lemon and grain notes. Good thing the appearance makes a better impression: pours a deep gold with a thick white head and lots of lacing. Texture is nice and oily, if a bit undercarbonated. Drinkable, but not great.

Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 12 oz can. Sparkling light amber pour with a nice glow, silky, snow white head that leaves just a hint of lacing. Aroma is delectable with a perfect blend of spruce notes and mango and citrus. Scrumptious flavor with nice citrus bent to it, plenty of caramel sweetness, some mango fruitiness. Thick, rich mouthfeel. . Foxbush (2142) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 6, 2017
12 oz can from Growlers to Go, Short Pump, VA The IPA poured a clear amber color with a frothy head and limited lacing. There is good head retention. The aroma of citrus and tropical fruits greets you. Also some pale malts round out the experience. The taste is nicely done with hop citrus and more tropical fruit. The ale has a medium body with average carbonation. Some hints of spruce after some swallows. The IPA was well constructed.

Pours a golden amber color with big fluffy head. Aromas of citrus, fruit, grass, and the best tropics. Flavors of tropical fruits and hops. slowrunner77 (13206) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 23, 2014
"The amarillo description is for the batch that was made when this beer was entered. The recipe stays the same but the hop used changes every year. Much to my liking, this year’s (2012) was citra. Freshest beer I’ve ever had from GA (buddy grabbed it still in the box a week ago). Really nice aroma a blast of citrus, orange and tropical fruit galore, Flavor much the same...understated, but full and lively, slightly dank. Mellow ipa, but I really dug the freshness and aproach to this brew. "
