Poured from a 22 oz brown bomber into a Duvel tulip. No freshness date other than "2012 Citra Hops" on label. Purchased at Market Street Wineshop (Charlottesville, VA) for $6.99.
A: Surprisingly dirty amber with 1-2 fingers of off-white head with decent retention leaving an irregular ring of foamy lacing around the top of the liquid line.
S: Super aroma with a good blend of grapefruit, orange, and lemon citrus, floral notes, and a musky undertone which is a signature for Citra in my mind (nose?). Some pine hops poke through as well. The malt component is way subdued with a light crackery character.
T: The flavor is also pretty citrusy with grapefruit leading the way and with more lemon than orange in the middle to finish. The floral note blend with pine to give a really dry honeysuckle flavor to the finish. There is that same undercurrent of earthy muskiness as well. The maltiness is not at all assertive but lends a light caramel quality. The bitterness is low.
M: The feel is good with relatively low carbonation and a medium body. It is fairly slick and very easy to drink.
O: A good not great fresh hop beer from Terrapin. Definitely worth a try, if not for just the great aroma!

Pours deep clear orange with a small soapy head. Aroma is breathtaking and one of the best I have smelled on a pale. Deep pine hops, sweet grapefruit, floral, and even a bit of candy caramel smell. Flavor is very sweet and candy like. Not as much bitterness as i was hoping for. No bottle date, so maybe I got it late in the year? Still has the hop flavor though. Candy sweet grapefruit with only a hint of pine. Floral flavor. Thick and syrupy mouthfeel for a 6.6% here. Pretty flat. Good beer, but can't say I wasn't hoping for more bitterness and refreshment. The aroma is there, most of the flavors are there, but something seems slightly off. It is so close to being right. Just falls short of my benchmarks in the fresh/wet syle (Founders Harvest & GD Fresh Hop). Bonus points for the name of this one though.

Found some notes from 11/2012...
@ Tasty Beverage
Slightly hazed deep orange color under some creamy froth. Aromas of spruce, graham crackers, and stone fruit. Deeply fruity hop taste, bold tropical flavors, green stickiness, grapefruit, and peaches. Slightly prickly carbonation, not super bitter, medium bodied, and a bit dry. Hoppy goodness.
