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.

Pours a hazy golden with a nice half finger frothy white head. Lemon zest, pineapple, wet hops, and a good dose of dank in the nose. The flavors bring in very similar qualities of Three Floyds Zombe Dust , perhaps a hybrid of, once again, Three Floyds Alpha King and Alpine Nelson based on their underlying effects. Burst of dank hops, orange, melon and some honey sweetness from the malts to balances this beer out. There is a slight bitterness in the back finish which brings this a bit more closer to an IPA rather than a pale ale. In addition to the creaminess, there is a medium body to this. Overall, a very fine pale ale - if not the best I've had in a while.

More balanced than a straight Citra monster. Crisp floral beginning followed by mango, passion fruit, and orange. Opened up as it warmed as, in my opinion, the tap room serves everything a bit too cold.

One of my favorite beers and available right here in Eastern Iowa. Great with the single hop, Citra. Delicious and always hits the spot. I prefer it on a clean tap, but the the 22oz bombers are just as good.

Incredible. Amazing how much flavor is packed into this relatively light bodied (and low ABV) beer. Super luscious in the mouth. A mango, Citra dream. Instant top 3 pale ale, along with Trillium Galaxy Dry Hopped Ft Point and Tree House Julius!!!
