Bomber thanks to joshmcg000. Slightly hazy gold pour with a 2 finger, creamy off white head that has good retention and leaves a little lacing. Aroma is loaded with tropical fruit, sweet citrus and some pine, small amounts of perfumey floral notes. A little toast, biscuit and maybe a hint of caramel are there if you really stick your nose in it, but mostly just awesome, fruity hops. Flavor is similarly full of tropical fruit, lots of pineapple and passion fruit, some nice ripe melon, citrus and a hint of pine. Aside from hoppy, fruity notes there are light, but pleasant notes, of biscuit, caramel, toast, sweet apple, a little bread and just enough minerality to the finish to give it a pleasant crispness. Medium body, with a nice, creamy entry, moderate strength, blanketing carbonation and off dry, crisp finish. Fantastic, beer, perfectly drinkable, nearly flawless execution and loaded with hops. After reviewing Zombie Dust a few days ago and this little gem today, I may be a bit spoiled on Citra APA’s. Thanks Josh!
3 finger off white head.
Semi-hazy, amber coloured beer.
Aroma is pungent & sweet. Overripe mango, grapefruit, pine, slight lemon, big black pepper note, peach and apricot, with a hint of dry, white grape.
Taste is grapefruit, lemon, orange marmalade, overripe mango, pine and a big black pepper note here aswell but much ’darker’, think soil and earth.
Mouthfeel is semi-watery. Medium carbonation. Lingering, medium-high grapefruit bitterness.
Overall: Good APA that focuses a bit much on the earthy and peppery flavours and it’s a pretty sprawling beer, when it comes to the balance between taste notes. Some sips it tastes pretty good, next sip it has a unpleasant earthy bitterness along with a weak taste. Doesn’t feel like a good showcase for the very tasty Citra hop. Still manages to be a pretty good, drinkable APA but definitely nothing I would rush to pick up again. FunkyF (1198) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 22, 2017
Burk fr?n SB. Ljust gul med vitt skum. Tropisk doft ananas och passionfrukt. L?tt och fruktig smak. mzaar (3463) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2017
Burk från SB. Ett halvår gammal enlig stämpel på burkens botten. Och visst har den säkert tappat en aning fräschör, men det som ändå finns kvar är verkligen inte dumt alls. Grapefrukt, persika, blomster och tall i doften. Smakinslag av malt, tropisk frukt, karamell och tall. Oljig munkänsla. Fin balans mellan sötma och beska. esp0r (2921) - NORWAY - JUL 16, 2017

Yellow pale, white head. Smell of mango, citrus, hints of herbs, light malts. Moderate sweet, fruity mango and citrus, zesty tail, very enjoyable
Hazy golden color, large white head. Fruity aromas with hops, grass, citrus, grapefruit and pine. Bitter taste with resin, citrus, grass and pine. Mediocre.

@Stordirren. 17-7-16: lite gräsig doft. Liten fruktighet med gräsig beska. Känns som den har tappat en del. Hint av papp. Tyvärr för gammal. MaBeer1972 (2063) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUL 15, 2017
