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.

A- Golden with a light haze. 1 finger white head with fantastic lacing. 4

S- holy crap! Aromatic intensity on another level. Mango like crazy, grapefruit, lemon grass. The hop level is busting out of the glass in a feeble attempt to contain it. 5

T/M- Despite it being lighter in body, it lacks nothing in flavor. All the tantalizing hop notes that the nose presented, and then joined by a dense, cracker/biscuit like malt base. Multiple waves of juicy goodness coming straight at you. A timely charred bitter finish, yet absolutely no astringency. 4.75

O- Quite possibly the best use of the Citra hop I have encountered. So much flavor packed into this pale ale. Hype met...and then some.

$7 for 22 oz bottle
