Notes/Commercial Description:
This single hop ale showcases the Citra hop. Named for the largest T-rex fossil ever discovered, she roars with ferocious aromas of grapefruit, citrus, mango and evergreen. Delicate in body with a mild bite in the finish.

No date that I can find, but I believe this to be quite fresh.

A: Pours a nice clear medium orange. Lots of sediment in the bottle. LOTS of sediment. Decent sized fizzy and fluffy white head. Head fades out slowly. Great head retention. Pretty decent big fluffy tufts of lacing left behind.

S: Oh yeah. Clearly citra heavy. Mangos, tangerines, pineapple. Super juicy and crisp. Quite spicy pine too. Aroma is nearly perfect. The tropical fruit aspect is just incredible. When swirled I get just a hint of garlic along with the pine.

T: Yup, citra and lots of it. Tropical fruits are more subtle here but similar. The garlicky flavor is here in spades with just a bit of pine to back it up. Oddly not very bitter; more drying than anything I think. Dry, crackery malt contributes to this as well. Lingering tropical fruits in the aftertaste.

M: Medium bodied, smooth and easy drinking.

O: Hell of an APA. One of the very best I've ever had. I think the only competition for this brew is Zombie Dust but I'm honestly unsure if this can overcome the zombie king. I think this has a better aroma than zombie dust but the drinkability and smoothness suffers in comparison. Razor close but I don't want to take anything away from this brew. It is top notch and highlights citra wonderfully. Great dry crackery malt backs it up just right. Excellent craftsmanship.

A huge thank you to my mother-in-law and long time Iowan Sue for packing a 64 oz. growler in her suitcase and delivering it to me in D.C. Boom!

The beer is transparent and golden with a quarter inch of off-white head. Big aroma of pine trees, resin, citrus, grapefruit, melon. Lovely. Super smooth on the palate with an elegant silky bitter finish. Tropical fruit and pine resin. Really fresh and delicious. Super easy to drink with very little alcohol presence. Delicious.

Serving type: growler
