Growler filled 2/22/2014 and enjoyed 3/1/2014. Poured into a Toppling Goliath snifter. Had to come out of review retirement for this one.

Pours a completely opaque bright yellow orange, with two fingers of frothy, foamy stark white head. Excellent sticky lacing throughout. I simply cannot get over the sheer brilliance of the body on this... look like orange juice. Smell is bright citra hops full of grapefruit, tangerine, and clementines, with a touch of dank fresh hop and some characteristic peppercorn. Has an earthiness to it which I have never encountered in citra before, expect a touch in Hill Farmstead Double Citra, and I'm loving it. The taste is... stunning. Unbelievably juicy and fresh, bursting with fresh squeeze orange juice, tangerines, and melon. There is honestly no malt profile to speak of. Body is incredibly juicy and refreshing, with the malt providing a fluffy backbone for the citra to thrive, but not contributing any real flavors. No trace of alcohol.

Quite simply, this is best double IPA I've ever had. Please make this again Toppling Goliath.
