Not sure how this got the rating of 91 . I must have had a older bottle from the 12 pack. Not sure . All I know is it's def not worth the 30$ I payed for the box! I think my expectations are/set too high because of price point etc.Lesson learned. I be interested in others opinions who have tried this as of late.

3.23/5  rDev -18.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Mild haze on a copper-infused dark gold. Head is small and white. Drops to faint wisps of a cap with a small creamy collar. Moderate carbonation with almost no lacing.

Smell: Oh hey, it smells like Citra. Tropical fruits. Mango with some peach and pineapple, but it's not particularly aggressive. The malts are a nice balance, bringing some bready notes with a sweeter caramel malt backbone. A bit toasted. It is Crooked Tree with a little less depth.

Taste: Slightly toasted malts. Nice blast of peach and mango. A bit of lingering pine bitterness. Relatively clean. Slightly spicy. Caramel malt sweetness. A touch of cracker. Resinous and bitter, but it's not quite as aggressive as the standard iteration. Leafy hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a moderate carbonation. A bit of lingering bitterness. Smooth and slightly creamy.

Overall: Citra, you have forsaken me.

I had high hopes for this version and maybe that's why it fell short. The single-hop lacks the hop depth I expect from Crooked Tree. It's good, but not an overall improvement.

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for giving me this beer

Appearance: Hazy, copper-orange, with some gold highlights - pours with a small, off-white head - fades to a few wisps of a cap, leaves some lacing

Smell: Citra, in a subdued liquid form, with some malts - ripe tropical notes, including pineapples and melons - some fleshy orange and tangerine - not much depth otherwise - some pale and caramel malts, with some graininess

Taste: Regretfully, even more one-dimensional than the aroma - mild tropical notes, tangerine, orange, peaches, and pineapples (but all very mild) - some pine as well - medium level bitterness - somewhat dry - some earthiness - nice pale and caramel malt backbone - some balance

Mouthfeel: On the light side of medium, smooth, nice carbonation, drinkable

Overall: Good but mostly meh

Citra is a magical variety of hops, but it shouldn't go solo. It's more of a support class. It has some amazing properties, but it can't survive on its own. What I would really like to try is Crooked Tree dry-hopped with Citra.
