A-Cloudy bright yellow/orange, two finger head that tries to leave some lacing.

S-Rather citrusy, lemon, tropical, grapefruit.

T-The citra hops provide a great citrus flavor with some grass an spice, tad bit of tropical notes with a nice bitterness.

M-Medium bodied, hop resins with a nice crisp finish.

O-Another knock out from HF, Citra is a great hop.

From notes

Appearance: It has a beautiful hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice thick off-white head that dies down moderately slow and leaves great lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of tropical fruit, citrus, dank pine resins, floral notes and sweet bready malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a ton of citrus (very tropical), floral undertones, bitter pine resins and some sweet bready malts in the back.

Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a very nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by great flavors and aromas. This beer smells like a hand-full of fresh hops. It's a great showcase of Citra.

Serving type: growler
