From a 750 into a HotD tulip. This growler is 10+ days old so there is that. That being said it pours a dark orange hue with a beautiful two finger head. And it smells fantastic.

Taste. Easily the best Citra IPA I've expereinced. Fruity, resinous, bitter. But alas I do not like Citra. I keep hoping that my taste buds will adjust but it doesn't seem to be happening. I just don't like the spicy, bitter burn that accompanies it. That being said this one is very nicely balanced.

Overall a really nice beer and definitely worth a try. Especially if you like citra.

Though this isn't my favorite HF IPA it's still very good.

I finally got to try this and my meager descriptive abilities do not do it justice. As another said, "Does it live up to the hype? Yes! Period." No, exclamation point! Period.

Incredible all around. Thanks again Nat for hooking us up. 750ml. Split it three ways and everyone thought it was top notch.
