Tasted from Growler and bottle release. Stunningly good. Though B1 was MUCH jucier.

Bomber shared by Doopie a few weeks back. Originally brought to us by youbrewidrink! This one and the Sosus were put up together. Thanks for the share guys!

From a bomber into a snifter
Citra hop exclusive

APPEARANCE: Pours a two finger, medium looking, creamy white head with very good retention. Hazy light amber orange in color with medium-low levels of carbonation. Head slowly fades to a full cap and sticks to the sides of the glass. A full wisp remains until the end and leaves lots of nice lacing as the glass empties. Good looking.

SMELL: Pure citra hops. Citrus fruit, lemon zest, honeydew melon, pineapple, and just a light touch of soapy notes as well. Good, and not overly soapy like some citra-only beers can be.

TASTE: Really good. All citra hop. Some caramel and citrus fruits up front with more hops and bitterness at the swallow. Big and lingering aftertaste of lemon zest, citrus oranges, bitter grapefruit and honeydew melon sweetness as well. Hop bitterness lingers with some citrus fruit flavors. Not much soap here compared to the nose.

PALATE: Medium body and medium carbonation. Creamy on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes a bit dry.

OVERALL: Really good. Loved this stuff. Luckily the soapy qualities citra hop can often impart on an IPA were minimal here, and the flavors and aromas worked really well. Was happy to try this and would gladly drink more. This one was more citrus heavy than the spicier Sosus, but both brews were top class. Thanks again Doopie!
