3.94/5 rDev -10.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
A: Very hazy golden-orange color, nice foamy white head. Carbonation looks to be lacking a bit. Nice lacing.
S: Love these all citra beers, reminds me a ton of Citra Ninja, Zombie Dust, etc. Huge punch of candied fruits, mango, grapefruit, pineapple, touch of honey, and some pine.
T: Flavor is much more subdued then the aroma. Some citrus, mango and pine. Clean, crisp and refreshing. Just wish it punched you in the mouth just as much as it did in the aroma. Nice light malt background as well.
M: Pretty light, light carbonation. Crisp and not that much residual sugar, which is a plus.
O: Amazing citra aroma that punches you in the nose, but with this had more flavor and bitterness to it. It is really easy to drink though and would love to try this again he there are adjustments.

From 03/10/14 notes. Big thanks to BeerLawyer85 for sharing this one; thanks Ross! 64 oz. growler split 2 ways, so got a good 30 oz's of this or so. Poured into a tulip.
a - Pours a murky, bright yellow color with two inches of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks really nice.
s - Smells of citrus hops, lemongrass, lemon zest, floral hops, fruity malts, light grapefruit, and some bready malts. Lots of citrus. very nice nose.
t - Taste follows the nose pretty closely. Tastes of citrus hops, lemon zest, grapefruit, honey, floral hops, light pine, fruity malts, earthy notes, and light tropical notes. Taste is lightly bitter as well.
m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Very easy to drink with the tiniest bit of bitterness.
o - Overall I thought this was a very good beer. It is not their hoppiest beer, but it is very good and still has a good amount of citrus hops to it, and it is very drinkable. I wouldn't put it on the level of Zombie Dust or Hoppy birthday in terms of pale ales, but I think it is on par with Edward and still great.

On tap at Prohibition Pig. In a tulip the beer was a hazy yellow color, very pretty, with a medium-sized white head. There was a bit of lace.
Aroma was citrus and floral hops, with some sweet malt.
Grapefruit. Flowers. Bread.
Shaun Hill can certainly brew beer.
