Wonderfully crafted DIPA.

It's a conundrum. I have had Heady Topper, fresh Pliny the Elder, and a three month old 22 of Kern Citra Double IPA. I like the beers in this order HT, PtE, then Citra. These are all world class brews. It depends on preference, and what you grew up drinking.

A - Deep, dark, rich orange. Sticky carbonation.
S - Sweet mango, grapefruit, pineapple, and citrus.
T - World-class. Rich. Not as complex as Heady and not as clean at PtE.
M - Dense, quality carbonation.
O - Up there with HT and PtE.

For me, a top three contender for best DIPA.
