A - Hazy orange with a nice white head. Very tight bubbles disappear rather quickly leaving a couple larger ones to wander the surface. Good, thick stuff.
S - Whoa. The aroma jumps from the bottle upon opening. Pineapple and mango craziness. Amarillo hops and fresh squeezed orange juice. Perhaps the least amount of grapefruit I've ever smelled in a DIPA. Beautiful.
T - Well my first sip tells me that this beer has excellent balance. It's sweet, and follows the nose up front, but then the flavor falls off in the middle. At the tail end of the swallow the fruit and bitterness creep back in for an enjoyable finish. Good, but not as exciting as the nose.
M - Full bodied without being overly sticky. Quite creamy and very smooth going down.
O - Superbly easy drinking. Didn't quite live up to the hype--with a bold name like 'Citra' I had been expecting (and hoping for) a lot more flavor. Don't get me wrong, what is offered is absolutely balanced and delicious.
