3.44/5 rDev -9.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance- A pale amber color under a moderate bleached white head that dissipates rather quickly. Overall an inviting sight.
Smell- Very plain but aggressive citrus smell. As the head dissipates the smell does as well but at a much quicker rate.
Taste- As expected a very heavy citrus taste initially that lingers for a few seconds. An after taste of slight hops is welcome. Overall good flavor, but a bit watered down tasting.
Mouthfeel- Overall a light feel with a bit of a bitter bite to it. The flavors are more abundant the longer the beer is exposed to the mouth before swallowing.
Overall- generally a good beer I would drink again. It has a very inviting appearance to it and is backed up with an equally intriguing smell. The taste is a bit of a letdown in that it appears somewhat watered down. Overall an enjoyable beer. If it's around and you haven't had it, why not.

Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau Dogfish Head IPA glass.
A bit of murky orange, and a little chestnut brown towards the top, even lighter yellow body where the glass gets more narrow at the bottom. An array of hues, but a bit cloudy. Nice slow rising carbonation that meets a fluffy big white four finger tall head. Big clumpy retention, island pucks and valleys.
Solid nose. Some light tropical fruits and a good amount of bready malts. Slightly toasty also.
There's also some interesting pickle and salty brine character to this it seems.
Palate has a good solid hop coating and oils. Flavors though give more to malt toast and lots of baked bread on the finish. Some good bitterness and hints of tropical fruit, and some punch pineapple a little bit also.
Overall a pretty easy going IPA, nothing amazing but nothing ordinary either.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a teku glass
Very interesting brew. Definitely Not what I was expecting but not a terrible beer. Aroma was somewhat off with very little floral hop aroma. I smell the said mango flavor that the label proclaims, however it is not present in the taste. I actually thought the beer was old and oxidized at first but I double checked the date to make sure. Mouthfeel is ok...not much of a party in my mouth as some of the other citra IPAs I have had. Lacing is present in the glass and the brew has a nice head that dissipates slowly. Overall not the best brew but not the worst either. Is it worth a try? Sure why not.

3.74/5 rDev -1.8%

Had on-tap at Appalachian Vintner. Serve in a tapered 8 oz glass.
A- Pours a murky dark amber, almost brown, color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before slinking down to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of sheer surface foam. Not-so-resilient lacing leaves clots behind.
S- Pungent C-hop aroma brings notes of tangerine, orange and grapefruit.
T- Aggressively bitter hops sink their teeth in and don't let go. Almost too much bitterness to discern any flavor that was hinted toward in the nose. The bitterness lingers and lingers and I'm still struggling to find anything else. As the palate acclimates, things become more tolerable but I still wouldn't say it has high drinkability.
M- Very sharp and dry with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.
O- The taste just does not follow through on what's shown in the aroma.
