03/03/14 From Bottle. Not quite what I was expecting. I was looking for that slight pucker one gets from Cigar City's Jai Alai IPA but what I got was much more subtle. Not being a big hops fan I am coming around to some of the more well balanced brew & in particular those that let the unique flavor of Citra hops shine through.

This project, although it shares the essential flavor 'profile', it's obvious how it is applied makes all the difference in the world. Experience dictates one must be extremely careful when using citrus peel & zest. Too much of the cottony pith in any application can give an undesirable bitterness. I would have preferred just a touch of sugar or similar sweetener to round out/mute the bitterness I detected.

I'm glad I tried it but I'm not sure if I'd buy the tee shirt.
