Thanks to chippo33 for sending this one. 750ml growler poured into a snifter.
A: Pours a very hazy golden-orange color, with a paper thin white head. Carbonation looks to be lacking a bit.
S: Wonderful juicy, tropical aroma I've come to expect with Citra hops. Loads of citrus fruits, pineapple, and mangos. Sweet sweet nectar.
T: Much subtler than the aroma. Still tropical and citrusy, with a slight bitterness, but it just seems to be slightly lacking. Fruity and refreshing.
M: Very light, with minimal carbonation.
O: Tasty and refreshing, but I had higher hopes. Not sure if the lack of carbonation is due to the growler seal, but it seemed to somewhat flat. The aroma was top notch, but I would have liked more bitterness or a dry finish to go with the juicy fruity flavor. Still a really good refreshing APA, but not the awesomeness I've come to expect from HF brews.
Serving type: growler
