COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American IPA bursting with citrus aromas and flavors. You’ll find evidence of tangerine, grapefruit, orange and mango in the aroma from the multiple additions of a single hop variety, Citra. There is also a nice malt balance in this bitter, full bodied, doglicious IPA that is a citrus lovers delight.

sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2013
12 oz bottle from six-pack, Andersons, Columbus, OH. Hazy gold-orange, creamy white head, strong lacing. Aroma is a dead giveaway for the citra, and lots of it. Citrus, toast, pine, caramel. Verging on over-hopped but this has a solid malt backbone and body that do stand up well. I’m a big fan of Thirsty Dog and this is another above-average offering from them.

Palme (4811) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2017
On tap @ Blind Tiger House. A nice blurry looking golden colored one with a good looking almost creamy just off-white hefty lacing head. Smells really tropical and fruity. Citrus zest, pine cones, a little bit of cat pee and some mango. Really nice! Å really good flavor here also. As fresh as they come with a mild oily texture and a just above near creamy carbonation level. Zesty and fruity in the taste. A ton of sweetish peaches and mango, traces of melons. Really likable, scary easy to drink. The pint went way to fast. 21.06.2015

drowland (8676) - Georgia, USA - APR 30, 2017
4/30/17. 12oz bottle from ABC. Hazed orange pour under a nice khaki head, mild lacing. Mild floral aroma, bread, a chalky aspect, maybe some pennies. Malty flavor, biscuit, caramel, spice, very little hop character. This is either old or bad. Or both.

Voodoo (666) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2017
Poured a hazy golden with a medium white head which lingered......aroma is grapefruit, melon.....taste is short on body as it disappears as soon as it appears, crisp, grapefruit pulp, light malt sweetness, bitterness on the back end. More the body of a session, but very good mid palate.

mar (5415) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 2, 2017
Must be an old bottle. Gold with a white head, light citrus, florals, bitter and caramel. Easy palate, dough, bread, light hops, not much else.

Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - FEB 16, 2017
Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a sly golden yellow color with a slight transparency about it. Carbonation could be seen rising at a decent pace to fill a one finger white foamy head. Light fizz. But a balanced foamy/bubbly lace. The aroma starts with the citra bitter to sweet hops with a touch of grassiness and then a balancing malt backbone. The flavor leaves a little bit to be desired with the citrusy aromas to taste slightly burnt with lack of zing. Malty biscuity to caramel tones. Earthy to citrusy and bready aftertaste with a mild crisp finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Mild carbonation. ABV feels effective, fine. Overall, weird AIPA. Though I didn’t see a date, my cohort said it was fresh thus my numbers. Unsure if I would come back to.

unclefrito62 (276) - Stow, Ohio, USA - OCT 23, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Thin white head. Aroma is hoppy. Hazy, light gold in appearance. You can taste the hops, we don’t really taste any citrus flavors.. Little harsher bite on the tongue with slight bitter after taste. Overall average beer for style.

3.2
decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Yellow pour with white head and lace. Aroma is bready malt and citrus hops. Flavor is bready malt and a mismash of of citrus and bread. Medium body with OK carbonation. A bit Un balanced or old.

3.2
trapped (3147) - New York, TURKEY - SEP 15, 2016
Draught @ Albion. Hazy darkish amber with small off-white creamy head, faint orange aroma, low carbonation, initially sweet orange/mango taste that turns bitter, thickish body, medium bitter orange finish. Not very spectacular.

3.4
blankboy (7689) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2016
[Bottle {12oz)] Pours a hazy dark copper with a huge rocky white head and lots of lacing on the glass. Slightly mild aroma of fruit, light breadiness and alight vegetal notes. Decent fruity and hoppy flavour along with a moderately bitter finish. Average bodied. Just good.

4.1
ganache (5896) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 31, 2016
Bottle. Nose immediately thrusts heavy pine and heavier rind, tropical with less citrus. Pour is a clear rich golden with a lacing, rocky bright white head. Taste medium bitter with light sweetness that dries out, lemon and lots of tropical (mango, passionfruit, heavy lychee) with more recent cherimoya overtones, bready toward the end after passing through lemony-chalky coating and above-average maltiness for style (sunny, just a touch of Pils- or similar graininess). Full body but not fat, great chalky-rindy coating even into the aftertaste, light zesty tartness without any hint acid or alcohol, clean and refreshing and structured. Might be my favorite of the Citra-bombs released in recent years. [2016.07.29: 4.1]
