Growler courtesy of dc51100's BIF generosity. Thanks!
Decanted into a TG black logo goblet (also thanks to Dan). Pristine clarity, nice orange-amber color, with a firm cap of foamy white head; good retention and lacing. The aroma on this was truly out of this world, I got a blast of fresh tropical fruits from across the room...didn't even have to hold it to my nose. I'm actually kind of skeptical that this was exclusively Citra, as I've never gotten quite an intense nose from that hop by itself. But yeah, pineapple, mango, orange, grass, twinge of ammonia. Whatever the case, excellent. The taste wasn't quite as blasting or intense, but pretty much more on line for a good APA. More citrusy, orange blossom, caramel malt sweetness, good balance, low bitterness, with a more low-key tropical fruit profile. Medium body, crisp, clean mouthfeel. I prefer a little acidic twist in my APA, but this didn't really have that, with the malt profile coming out more and providing more of a balance and toning down the hop profile a bit. Very nice overall. Not really uber-extraordinary for the style, but still quite good.
