Extremely good!!! Had in a 750 Growler sent to me by a trading friend and it did not disappoint!! Only thing better would have been having it out of the tap a week earlier! Lots of Citra hops on the nose and palate.

Received a 2 liter growler in a trade that was about 10 days old. I drank the growler by myself in a 48 hour period (didn't want it to go flat) so I definitely became familiar with this beer.

I love citra hops and this beer didn't let me down. Lots of citrus smells and flavors. Smooth, very drinkable and the lacing on the glass was great. I usually don't mention lacing but this was noticeable and added to the drinking experience. My second favorite citra based beer after ZD.

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.
