750 mL growler filled 10/2. Served at 40F into a HF wine glass.

A: Hazy just darker than golden body full of vey fine carbonation. A 1.5 inch frothy whote head bursts over and over again with bubbles. Head retention is moderate (~ 1 minute) and eve vigorous swirling regnereates only about 1/2 inch of the head. A moderate yet fone lacing pattern remains as the glass empties.

S: Compared to Citra single, thos is more tropical, perhaps passion fruit or guava? Not as potent or strong up front as the Citra. but more balanced and nuanced with touches of grassy, earthy aromas. Still no hint of malt in this.

T: Pine and resin dominate with tropical fruit and lemon following up. Much jucier i my mouth tha. I thoguht fromthe nose. Bitterness lingers on the tongue, but not at all unpleasant. Malt backbone is mild but noticable...it doesn't smack you lie, a west coast IPA, but it's presence is clear and crisp.

M: Despite the huge hop flavor this remains medium to medium-heavy in the body. Oily residue is minimal and as a result, residual bitterness fades quickly. Carbonation is appropriate and keeps the beer fresh. 8.00% alcohol is well hidden...no hint of fusel heat or booze.

O: I really like this, and I'd like to think I could drink more... but I don't think that the alcohol would permit that. A great example of the style, especi?ly or out here o. the east coast. I can see why people clamor for this beer.
