From a bottle. Loght golden body with a big pungent sweet resin aroma. Lots of citrus flavor, but I also get a hint of onion taste. Not really digging the savory flavors or the hint of onion. Maybe this would be a good beer to cook with. Not one of the better citra hop examples

Second beer of the day. Here goes:

A: Not very good. Murky but light orange. Pours a tiny head with very little lacing. Not much carbonation apparent.

S: OK, not great, though. Huge floral and grassy smells; also a lot of citrus. However, I'm missing that tropical sensation that I get from other citra-hopped beers.

T: Not bad. Taste follows the flowery smell, which is a good thing. Grassy hops linger at the back of the tongue long after consumption. Very little malt.

F: Bad. Far too watery; not carbonation. Just bad for the style, IMO.

O: OK beer. Will not get again, though - certainly no Zombie Dust killer, which is what was advertised at the store.

It's has a nice Amber/cider look. Very mild smell, nothing too distinct. Taste is not hoppy enough for an ipa, on the watery side. Overall a pretty weak feel, disappointed with the hops concentration. Could be a good session beer
