Simply one of the best beers I have ever had. The light cloudy color, nose and taste are all top rate. Waited a long time to get my hands on some growlers of this and it is easy to see why it is in high demand. Exceptional beer from an exceptional brewer.

The beer comes in a signature hazy golden light orange.

The aroma has juicy oranges and grapefruit, mango and peach tropical for a bit of sweetness.

The flavor follows with that bright Citra tangerine and citrus peel flavor throughout. A generally light beer as the mid palate empties from that light flavor onto a floral flavor of mostly drying. A clear transitioning from fruit as the Citra hop offers. I almost got a hint of "rubber," but not necessarily in a bad way.

In general, a restrained CItra DIPA. It tastes like a bigger brother of the Citra Pale Ale, which despite being world class, is still one of the weaker DIPAs out of HF. As "disappointing" as going on a date with the least desirable Victoria's Secret model could be...
