22 oz bottle with a drink by date of 2/23/14 courtesy of Vince. Thank you kindly for the opportunity!

Orange yellow pour with s nice egg froth and some stick....looks the part.

White nectarine, which I get a bunch from Citra, is very present on the nose as well as some exotic fruits who pop in for a little who's your father. Plenty of toasted malts and sunflower seeds as well. Sounds strange perhaps, but I'll be damned if it's not there. Bit of piss too.

Right on par with the nose. Pineapple, mango, dry nectarine skins, sweet malts, and a touch of booze that creeps and lingers. Leafy and vegetative while green onion flashes in and out. Dank fade...

Mouthfeel is neither heavy nor light for a DIPA, but not without a good deal of hop oils along the way. Carbonation is crisp.

A nice Citra beer that doesn't break any molds. Thankful for the opportunity, happy to pound it, but not blown away.
