Oh, this is a cool one. It starts with a cool label. Citra the super dog. It opens and pours to a pretty, clear yellow with a lot of lace. Very good. The aroma is good and strong and a little unusual. Those citra hops are showing.

The taste is as outstanding as it is original. I have never had an AIPA that had this much character but still was balanced and easy drinking. I might have under rated it.

It's bitter up front and continues into the aftertaste, but it is an unusual bitter. The things they did to make this single hop brew were worth the effort.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours a clear light amber with a massive head and lacing that retains very well. The nose is a blend of tropical citrus notes and grapefruit over a toasted malt background sweetness. Almost medium bodied with a slick texture approaching creamy. Slightly above average carbonation level with a bit of effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is a well balanced blend of citra hop flavor and bitterness over an underlying toasted malt sweetness. It begins with the citrus flavors, progresses to a citrus and grapefruit rind bitterness that is mellowed by a toasted sweetness. Quite nice. Nice smooth finish that leads as slightly sweet then flows into a nice citrus bitterness that lingers just the right amount along with a bit of tartness. This dog can hunt.
