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.

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

Growler shared by Kan. Served in a Russian River tulip.

A - White foam settles to a thick collar, wisps, and a few spots of lace. Hazy dark orange-brown body.

S - Lots of Citra hops, with juicy orange, tropical fruits, and a hint of dank onion. Fairly balanced, with the expected sugar cookie malts and a touch of brown sugar as well.

T - Similar to the aroma, but with not quite as much malt character. Lots of citrus flesh and a touch of rind, and a few slightly herbal notes. There's moderate bitterness that grows over time.

M - Medium body, pleasant crisp carbonation, some lingering oily hop resins amid the dry finish. No alcohol presence.

D - A solid and well-crafted DIPA. The reviews on Ratebeer seem unusually high, but if you like Citra hops you certainly won't be disappointed by this one. If I were at Jackie O's I'd definitely order this one again.
