Poured from a growler into a Willibecher glass. This was filled 4 days ago at the brewery.

Appearance: Pours a peach, slightly light amber color and leaves a finger of sticky, white head, that lingers for a while before fading to a layer atop the beer.

Smell: Big citrus hops up front, some pineapples and peach as well, honey, a hint of pine. Very clean and crisp flavors.

Taste: Honey, grapefruit juice, clementines, just a hint of lemon zest. The grapefruit is quite prominent, as well as delicious. Very drinkable flavor, not too bitter. Alcohol is masked by the citrus. Quite juicy.

Mouth-feel: Medium to well carbonated, with a nice smooth medium body.

Overall: Lovely grapefruit flavor to this one - definitely the best citra hopped beer I've had. Lovely mouthfeel and this is extremely drinkable for a DIPA.

750 ml growler filled at Hill Farmstead. Poured into a HF stemmed glass.

A - Golden yellow hue. Bright white head. Nice lacing on sides of the glass.

S - Lemon, Grapefruit, honey and fresh hops.

T - Lemon and grapefruit dominate with bitter finish. Etoh is moderately present.

M - Mild to moderate carbonation with a criep and balanced mouth feel. Abner solid out, so dbl Citra was the growler fill. Consistent flavor and experience from my last tasting of dbl citra.
