4.16/5  rDev +10.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A-Pours a cloudy orange color. ACBF sample glass restricts my judgments on head and lacing.

S-Aromtatic whiffs of juicy citrus and vegetal grassiness. Orange rind, some tropical guava and grass. A wet, lightly toasty backbone complements the ripe hoppiness.

T-More of the same here. The tropical combination of juicy oranges and grapefruits are met with secondary notes of leafy hops as well as some mango perhaps. Sweetness works its way into the scene despite being hop-forward through and through. Finishes with a cutting, grassy bitterness.

M-Very drinkable with a juicy, dry feel. Subtle carbonation. Dry and moderately bitter.

O/D-I think this is an underrated brew. Lots of ripe, flavors and the malt brings some legit balance as well. A very solid single hop IPA.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at New York Pizza. Pours a translucent amber color with an inch of head. Tons of lacing. The aroma is that classic Citra hop smell. Citrus and tropical fruits. Some light malts. The taste is more of the same. Citrus and tropical fruits with some stone fruit notes as well. Toasted malt backbone. Finishes with some light bitterness and the citrus again. Slightly oily mouthfeel with a lot of carbonation. Minimal alcohol presence. This is a very easy drinker. Overall, decent showcase for the Citra Hops.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

On draft at The Ginger Man, NYC.

The smell featured a soft caramel malt and a moderate earthy hop.

The taste was rather well balanced with a tip toward the earthy do iciness of the nugget.

The mouthfeel was clean.

Overall a pleasant and easy drinking balanced ale.
