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.

App. - Cloudy orange pour with a finger of white head on top. Lots of lacing and a bubbly top.

Smell - Citrus. Heavy on orange with a lot of tropical fruit.

Taste - Excellent! The hops come through big time. Tons of fruit.

Mouth. - A bit heavy but very drinkable. Also excellent.

Over. - This has to be one of my favorites. I'm always excited when I see it on the shelf. Seriously, one of the best pale ales I've ever had.

One of the beers I got in a beer trade, can't wait to try it out.

Appearance: Copper Orange with a slight haze, that pours a great white head that laces the glass.

Smell: Tropical fruits, orange, mango, with a big hop back bite.

Taste: Follows with the smell, delicious fruits with peach, nectarine, orange, and then finishes with a bitterness. Really, really good.

Mouthfeel: Slightly thick, but very very easy to drink. Has the perfect texture.

Overall: Maybe the best Pale Ale I've ever had. Super solid, and one to look out for.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance - bright copper color with a great two finger head from the pour.

Smell - lots and lots of citrus. However on the very back end I did get some off smell (cat urine), but that is only when I really tried to get a deep smell

Taste - wow, just wow. This is what a beer should taste like. Great hop/ malt balance with lots of great citrus.

Mouthfeel - great carbonation level and with a taste that rolls off your tongue this is great.

Overall - wish I could get more of this. if you have a chance you MUST get this beer.

This is an amazing drinkable beer. Its has crisp carbonation, a Candied mango, grapefruit aroma and taste and can easily be consumed in large quantities at a rapid pace. I cant express enough in words the drink ability of this beer, its amazing. A top notch, stand tall, kick a$$ brew that literally TOPPLES the competition. Seek this out cause this beer is off the charts!

Bottom Line: Pure Awesome! this is the best APA I have ever had, it's that good.

Thanks to Tricerahops for this.

Poured from a 22oz bottle, no #freshbeer info.

Looks gorgeous in the glass. A completely hazy body, color is banana-orange. Frothy head, major lacing with chunks, excellent retention, hits all the notes. Aroma is of strong citrus, lemon, floral and mangoes. Flavor is outstanding! Real lush mango, lemon rind, plump citurs fruit, juicy, refreshing, creamy. So very good, tastes like real hop fruit. Near perfect, think if the aroma was a bit more powerful, i would have a 5 on my hands
