12 oz bottle poured into a tulip

A- Hazy as hell orange. A half finger of an off white head.

S- A nice citrus nose, a slight onion spiciness. A little sweet backing from the malts.

T- Th citra in this beer doesn't add a ton of bitterness but a bold hop profile. There is a nice citrus with orange and mango. There is also an earthy spice. a kind of sharp wooden character. A good balance between malts and hops and overall nice drinking.

M- A decent feel to this beer, moderate carbonation and bitterness.

O- A solid IPA, not as good as the classic crooked tree in my opinion but the best of the single hopped ones.

Foggy bronze hued beverage under a thick, creamy head of froth. Juicy, pulpy citrus aromas, a little earth, peppery hops, brown sugar, and grainy malt underneath. Fresh grapefruit and orange citrus hop flavor and a really nice grainy sweetness. Fruity sweet too, in a tropical sort of way, with some grass and pine sap wrapping things up. Medium bodied and appropriately bitter. Good stuff, but I'm not really as madly in love with Citra as everyone else.

Poured this 12 oz. brown bottle into a Samuel Adams glass. No date. The head was think and off white in color. Moderate lacing remained. The body was hazy apricot.

The smell was citrus rind and pith. A bit garlicy.

The taste was full of citrus and tropical fruit sweetness. Solid maltiness but with a bolder, brassy finish. Drying.

The mouthfeel was was medium to full in density. Light to moderate carbonation.

Pours a murky medium golden apricot with no head, but slight cream lacing at the rim.

Grapefruit, tangerine, resin, and oniony hops form the initial aroma. Fresh cut grass and light caramel malt, and floral hops add complexity.

Flavor is fairly citrusy, with muted grapefruit and sour orange finding pineapple, then becoming fairly bitter and resiny at the finish, with a hint of pine. The bready malt backbone merely shines through as a toasted flavor mid palate.

Body is a tad heavy, due to the lack of carbonation. There's moderate alcohol warmth.

Why this is on cask is beyond me. The flavor profile suffers due to lack of carbonation. If the flavor were accentuated to match the aroma, this would be incredible.

Update: out of a bottle, nice one inch cream head that lingers.

Resin and malt dominate the aroma. Onion is prevalent, with underpinnings of citrus.

Flavor is fairly sweet, toasted caramel malt, with resin hitting mid palate and carrying into the fairly bitter finish. Tropical citrus is dwarfed by malt.

Carbonation is moderate.

Wow. Night and day difference. The malt overwhelms in the bottled version. Lots of resin. Too bitter for me.
