Poured into a nonic a dull brass color with a tightly formed lacey half finger white head atop.Aromas seem to be quite sweet and sugary with a big splash of citrusy hops,almost DIPAish in nature to me.Flavors are a citrusy bomb with big sugary sweetness along with caramel,the hops are big and so is the sweetness.Wow this is as close to tasting like a DIPA at 6.5% as you can get in my opinion with it's sweetness and hops mixture.

What can be said stellar appearance when you look a the beer and the packaging, however they are jumping on the Citra bandwagon to no avail. First things first IPA is all about the balance between hop flavor, bitterness, and malt balance. This beer lacks cohesion but I'm still interested. The stats are right 95 IBUs, 6.5 abv, but taste it let it coast the palate, appears a beautiful pale copper orange hue slightly off white head leaves fine even bands of lacing no complaints. Nose has big citric notes with swelling herbaceous earthy hops exploding, after that it's minimal malt biscuit notes and pretty one dimensional. Flavor very dank citric and herbal hops providing thoughts of orange peel and marijuana...I'm not a smoker in that regards but the beer speaks for itself. Malts appear in the background a bit of biscuit malt dry finish for sure this beer is a hopheads beer, I enjoy some of the other Citra hopped beers a bit more like White Rajah and Zombie Dust just due to balance but this beer is a true hop assault. Mouthfeel is oily slick with hop resins abound carbonation carries you through the hop swamp carbonation works well at a comfortable level going down with each sip. Overall I'm proud to be drinking another Ohio brewed Citra based IPA!!!

Undated 12 oz bottle served in a snifter.

Pours hazy amber, with a modest off-white head.

Aroma: a load of Citra hops yet some bready malts are also apparent.

Flavor: Follows aroma: fruity and herbal, with a substantial hop hit starting towards the finish. Despite a moment of rather high bitterness, this diminishes nicely in the aftertaste. Surprising complexity for a single hop brew.

O: recommended for hop heads.

A nearly pure white head almost a finger tall rests on a clear amber-hued brew. Retention is fair, while some spotty lacing clings to the glass most of the way down.
There's nothing that expressly shouts "Citra" to me in the hops profile. There's a bit of citrus and some sweetness along with it accompanied by a caramel/toffee malts note, but otherwise I get more pine-like bitterness than anything else. A hint floral as well with some rind and a slightly spicy aspect, it's rounded out by a light grassiness underneath. The well-rounded hops bouquet stands out a tad more in the nose than on the tongue.
The body is medium, with enough brightness and heft to make for a balanced feel, and enough crispness and smoothness to keep it rolling.
