22oz bottle from Windsor Hy-Vee. Especially pungent grapefruit quality that really fills the room after the pour. Peaches, pears, apricots and white grape juice. Cloudy orange-yellow appearance reminiscent of apricot nectar, with one finger of pillowy canvas colored head. Nice spidery lacing as you work your way down the glass. Nicely balanced grapefruit tang and mild bitterness from the first sip, followed by biscuity beer malt, peach and apricot, with a moderately bitter finish. Light- to medium bodied, nicely balanced and conceals its ABV well with a mild bitter astringency. A really well-crafted and carefully balanced brew, almost worthy of the hype surrounding it. The alcohol does start to show itself somewhere around the half-bottle mark. Slightly more bitter and more boozy than pseudoSue for sure, it still retains a fantastic balance and provides a fine drinking experience. TGB knows what they are doing. Have to try and get my hands on the Citra Double Dry Hopped variant one of these days.

Skyview (5824) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2017
Sampled from 22-oz bomber and shared by BVery, pours a semi-hazy golden pale colored beer with a decent sized off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some excellent lacing. Aroma of pine, golden grain malt, a touch of tropical fruit and some wild field onion. Taste is medium bodied, flavors of heavy citrusy and spicy Citra, golden grain malt and a touch of vanilla. Finish is semi-sweet and tropical fruity at first. Followed by some lingering powdered bitterness.

islay (2375) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 8, 2017
Approximately 16 oz. from a 22 oz. bottle, consumed on 12-30-16. Great, strong, funky, citric aroma features scents of peach and grapefruit (the fruit, rind, and peel) as well as wet wood. Strong, dark aroma. Pours a dull, hazy brass with a large amount of beige head. A bit too much head, and the dull color does nothing for me. Light effervescence. Creamy, uneven head; that part is good. Good, thick lacing. Settles into a more pleasing, deep golden color. Cloudiness in final pour. Nice, funky, dank taste atop a fruit and vanilla-sweet base. Nice, dry, funky finish. Gym bag and armpit in aroma and flavor. A touch of piney toothpaste. A good Citra showcase. Quite tasty, bordering on delicious. Funky, dry aftertaste. Medium to full body. Soft in the palate. Perhaps a bit undercarbonated, unfortunately. Complex. A lot going on. Not as outstanding as its very high rankings (5th highest rated double IPA and 31st highest rated beer overall as of this writing) would imply, but a very good beer, nearing great, nonetheless.

Bottle shared by Brian, thanks! Pours a hazy yellow gold with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has light citrus and grass with a touch of pine and some grains backing. Flavor has a touch of onion with a good amount of citrus, light grains and grass supporting.

Bomber shared by Bvery, thanks! Light golden pour. Huge tropical citrus hop aroma. Taste follows, bitter up front, very well balanced. This is dynamite!

emusche (209) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 4, 2017
Three days since bottling date. Pours beautiful clean copper into a snifter. Aroma is a big burst of tropical and melon notes, big mango and pineapple with heavy dank undertones and a clean floral faintly on the edges. Flavor is exactly what I'd hoped from the nose; all tropical fruits in a nice melange and with those firm resiny dankness to back it up. Amazing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I cant imagine a better beer. This is so flavorful with citrus hops just exploding with each sip, appearance is perfect with a pillowy white head. Its like psuedo sue on steroids. Exquisite in every way, my desert island beer.

On draft at tavour tasting. Totally amazing and worth the hype. Nice pungent citrusy hops hit you in the face. Rounded out by grapefruit. A tad on the sweet side. Gotta taste this fresh.
