On tap at Jackie-O's

A- pours a golden orange-amber color with a small creamy white head that has great retention and lacing around the glass

S- lots of bright citrus-grapefruit hops, a bit danky with some lemon peel, just a touch of sweet doughy malt on the back-end

T- citrusy hops explosion with notes of grapefruit, orange peel, lemon zest, some grassy notes with a sweet and malty finish. Awesome citrus notes coming from this one

M- medium body and carbonation, foamy mouthfeel with a slightly viscous finish

O- I really enjoyed the citrus hop aromas and flavors, yet it had just enough sweet and bready malt to balance it out. A superb DIPA.

Maybe what I having is already on BA, but the growler tag says "Citra Mandela". Merge if need be.

Huge thanks to JM03 for this beauty!

Pours a dark orange, somewhat hazed, with a finger of cream colored head. Juicy, juicy citrus aroma! Orange, zest, cream, bread. Taste is bitter, fruity, orange, grapefruit and a touch of lemon. Malts in the back . Full bodied creamy and substantial! Dipa heft in full force!

Sad day, when this growler is gone....

John! Ohioan! Live at JO'S :D

I had this on-tap during the anniversary celebration. Served in a tasting glass.

Appearance: The beer pours a clear amber color with a hint of gold. There is a quarter finger of fluffy off white head that fades to a layer on top of the pour and leaves some lace on the glass.

Smell: Juicy citrus hops with some pineapple and tangerine mixed in. There is a good amount of sweetness backing up the hops. Tons of fresh citra.

Taste: This reminds me of a west coast DIPA. There is no heat that would have clued me in to the abv. Citrus hop bitterness balanced by a the malty sweetness. The finish is quite bitter.

Mouthfeel: The body is medium with fluffy carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: This is a very nice beer that showcases the citra hops. I enjoyed it and would be interested in having more.
