Filled about a week ago. Teku glass.

A: Pours a hazy, light golden color with two fingers of fluffy, dense head. Very good retention and some nice, intricate lacing.

S: Citrus hard candy, orange peel, floral notes, and breadiness meld wonderfully together. A hint of rye or spice?

T: Gorgeous tropical (mango) and bright citrus, a pretty hefty dose of yeasty breadiness, with a light sugar sweetness rounding out the taste without negating the mild, rough grapefruit pith bitterness.

M: Medium, soft carbonation and medium body. No hint of alcohol.

O: Very nice DIPA from HF. Exceeding drinkability is only limited by the sweetness, which becomes a bit fatiguing after a half pint or so.

A darker shade of yellow in color. Cloudiness gives it a pastel appearance. Forms a moderately sized, fluffy white head. Head is quite stable. Lots of patchy lacing on the way down. Aroma is pungent - I could smell the ripe citrus juiciness as I was pouring the beer. Aroma is intensely citrusy. Juicy tangerine and orange blossom. The taste is more of the same. There is a mild sweetness to the beer that complements the juicy citrus. Tropical fruits, mandarin, and mango. Finishes with a touch of earthiness and an uplifting hint of alcohol. Medium bodied. Moderate bitterness. Lower carbonation gives this an extra smooth mouthfeel.
An excellent beer and about the most perfect expression of the citra hop that I've come across.
