Availability: Year-round

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.

4.53/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Surly Darkness chalice.

Appearance: Pours a bright golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid two fingers of white head that slowly recede into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a lot of creamy lacing around the glass.

Smell: A very juicy tropical aroma with big hints of citrus hops and earthy hops. Upfront scent of lush and juicy citrus hops with hints of grapefruit, mango, orange peel, pineapple, tangerine, apricot, lemon, passion fruit, and papaya. Earthy hop hints of grass along with some pine resin. Pale malt with hints of grains, cracker, biscuit, and yeast. Very forward with the tropical fruits. Seriously smells more like a West Coast IPA than APA.

Taste: As juicy as it smells, big dominate taste of citrus along with some earthy hops and malt backbone. Ripe and juicy citrus hops upfront with notes of grapefruit, orange peel, mango, pineapple, apricot, lemon, tangerine, passion fruit, papaya, and melon. Also some earthy hops with notes of grass and pine. Pale malt background with notes of biscuit, grains, cracker, and yeast. Very citrus forward with a nice clean bitterness. A very good West Coast style taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Very juicy and slightly oily. Finishes pretty dry and smooth.

Overall: A really great take on a APA. More like a West Coast IPA with a huge tropical fruit presence.
