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.

Thanks to Dmbsnus for the trade! Poured into a Half Acre tulip.

A - Pours a beautiful apricot haze with just over a finger of head.

S - Ridiculous amounts of lush, tropical fruit: grapefruit, pineapple, mango, peach with a hint of pine.

T - Pure, gushing tropical hop flavors balanced perfectly with a sweet malt finish.

M - Smooth, almost creamy, not unlike Apocalypse Cow.

O - A killer APA - my favorite to date. Definitely deserving of the hype.

This beer is knock your socks off tropical hops. Mango,citrus and all things tropical jump out of the glass. The pour is a gorgeous golden hue. Nice lacing lingers on the surface. Taste follows smell to a T. Tropical hop bomb and I love it. TG absolutely kills it with Pseudo Sue. Only regret is I am out and have no access to it.

22oz bottle from IAmJacksHopTongue (freakin awesome extra, thanks man!). No bottling info. Served in a Terrapin snifter.

Pours a soft pale orange with just under two fingers of white head. The healthy layer of froth that remains leaves some sizeable sheets of lace.

Vibrant citrusy aromas of oranges, clementines, mango, pineapple and just a hint of malt sweetness.

Tastes just as bright as the nose promised. Clementines, pineapple, mango, mandarins, grapefruit peel, some cracker and mild lemon drops. Layer upon layer of Citra hop goodness without a hint of alcohol. Delicious and ridiculously easy to drink.

Fairly light body but not too much so. Moderately sharp carbonation. Fairly bitter citrus zest finish with oranges, grapefruit and kumquat.

One of the best American pale ales that I've tried. Certainly among the upper crust of Citra single hopped brews out there. Very worthy. This is one of the two or three truly special APAs that I'd actually drink regularly if I had access to it.
