Our Imperial IPA hopped with so many, really just so many, pounds of Citra hops is one of our favorites to brew, mostly because it's one of our favorites to drink. Cheers! Drink early and often.

I had one of these less than 2 weeks old. It really was a malt bomb, and I had really high hopes.

Bottle was from Batch 623-626 1/31/15
Most likely was past it's best by date and this may be a reflection of how quickly these type high octane dipa's can drop off. I would put money on it that a fresh one of these would be fantastic

for me.. what set this one one apart from the many other IPA was its super balanced sweet honey like malt profile...it was not necessarily a perfect expression of the citra hop... it is for more of a nice well balanced beer with some Citra hops.more like a better version Of 90 min ipa... less like kern river citra or pseudo sue.

for whatever it's worth my bottle was also about a month old and it seemed to have more hop flavor at a warmer temperature
