2012 Citra Hops Version... Had the 2011 didn't like it that much, but didn't get around to reviewing it... Looks nice hazy orange copper color... Nose is strong piney and citrus very evident. I really like the smell. Flavor is very bright... citrus, orange, hop bitterness is there but a very fresh clean flavor... Doesn't leave a lot on the back of the tongue like most ipa's though these fresh hop beers tend to not be as bitter... I really do like this years version pick one up if you see it around.

2012 Citra Hops
Served in a mug.

A - Clear copper color very little head that dissipated immediately.

S - Strong citrus with a hint of pine

T - Good taste strong citrus hops with a bitter finish, almost too bitter, as you would expect from an IPA very slight hint of alcohol at the end.

M - Light feel slightly flat.

O - Overall a pretty good IPA. Very strong citrus hops which is what Terrapin intended. I felt that the overall flavor could have been better balance. Worth a try.

2012 Citra Hop

A hazy orange amber color with a thick off-white colored head that laces the glass.

Amazing aroma here....peach and apricot with some strong cut grass and citrus hop.

Wow....taste follows the aroma. A big peach, mango and citrus fruit flavor with a touch of grassy hop. There is a nice toasted malt flavor in the background with a good amount of sweetness. Finishes dry with minimal bitterness and a nice citrus, peach and toasted malt flavor. Definitely has that fresh nugs quality.

Medium body with some peppery carbonation. A bit of a sticky feel also. A nice dry finish.

I thought this beer was going to need to mellow, but it is perfect right now. Fruity, flavorful, and sweet without being cloying. Very drinkable beer. I'm glad I picked this up, I going to grab a few more of these tomorrow.

Hopped with fresh 2012 Citra hops. 22-ounce brown glass bottle poured into a Duvel tulip glass. Served at approximately 45 degrees F.

Pours especially clear, showing off a deep orangeish-copper hue with a huge two-fingered head of beige-tinged froth. As the head falls away, it clings to the glass with herculean strength, leaving behind long legs and fat splotches of lace.

The nose is a wonderful melange of citrus and tropical fruit notes, showing off a spread of blood orange, mango, papaya, and a hint of pineapple, all encircled by hints of starfruit. This showcase is what Citra hops are all about.

Smooth and medium-bodied, with a surprisingly lightly carbonated mouthfeel. Unlike the nose, the palate is pleasantly malt-accentuated and well-balanced. Bready, grain-like malt notes take the show from the get-go, teased in the middle with a balancing dose of dry bitterness that shows touches of grapefruit and orange around the edges but which doesn't intrude much further than that. Going down, more grainy breadiness takes hold and lingers afterward in the finish, melding with a moderately-dry bitterness to leave the drinker reaching for another.

The combination of an amazing bouquet, a balanced palate, and a dry finish yield one heck of a drinkable brew, and this showcase of brewing talent and a magnificent hop variety speaks of a beer that Terrapin should think heavily on re-releasing in the future.

Pours clear amber, with a two-inch, tinted, rocky head that sticks around, leaving webbing on a pint glass.

So Fresh is a bit fusil up front with notes of orange and pine sap in the background. Pine comes forward as it warms.

Moderately bitter with some grapefruit and caramel. Warmth brings tea flavors and the lingering finish has late orange flavors in it.

A medium to full body with a sticky texture and light carbonation. Alcohol is as expected by ABV, but less than expected by aroma. This one is dry, finish to end.

A beer to relax with while watching football and eating nuts or pretzels.

Got this as an extra from mdfb79 - Thanks Dan!

Wet hopped with 2011 Challengers
22oz to pint glass - notes taken on 04/18/12

A: Pour is a very clear darkened caramel amber color with a good three fingers high of thick khaki head. Stacked and cakey with big pockets of air bubbles that eventually settle leaving curtains of sticky lace upon the glass.

S: Does actually smell of fresh greens at first. Like newly cut grass. Hay-like even. Some soft underlying citrus fruit aromas there and a big malty sweet note persists.

T: Taste is real grassy too. Fresh cut alfalfa in a glass. Malts are caramelly sweet and a bit chewy giving quite the bready impression. Hints of pine and citrus but hops seem to drop out rather quick leaving me a bit unsatisfied with this one. Has a nice bitter astringency but the caramel malts seem to take over here.

M: Medium in body with a lighter mouthfeel to it. Nice dry crisping finish and a touch of oily slick linger.

D: This was okay but a bit of a let down for a wet hop IPA...especially given it's name and origin. Some nice fresh grassy notes but much maltier in the end. Way better stuff out there!
Glad to have tried this one though.
