From 02/11/14 notes. Big thanks to BeerLawyer85 for sharing this one; thanks Ross, another big want of mine. 22 oz. bottle into my Bell's tulip.
a - Pours a deep, murky dark orange-amber color with two fingers of fluffy off white head and moderate carbonation.
s - Smells of citrus hops, fruity malts, oranges, lemon, grapefruit, grains, wheat, floral hops, and light bready malts. Nice nose, loads of citra which I love.
t - Tastes of citrus hops, grapefruit, pine hops, tropical fruits, fresh fruity malts, grains, wheat, floral hops, lemon zest, and pineapples. Awesome taste, even better than the nose. Lot of citra again but more tropical fruits too, which I love.
m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. No bitterness and pretty easy to drink. Creamy mouthfeel. Very good.
o - Overall I loved this one; I love citra hops and this did not disappoint. Ton of oranges, citrus, and torpical fruits, and no bitterness which makes it easy to drink. Top notch, would love to have it again.

Batch #110. Pours slightly hazy, dark orange. One finger white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is pineapple and oranges. Somewhat floral. Flavor is mostly citrus and tropical fruit, pine and a kinda graininess. Heavy body with super creamy carbonation. Very bitter finish. Excellent balance between the high hops and heavy malts. Absolutely loved this beer.

Acquired via trade
A very sticky dark copper in color. Thin khaki head. Sticky lined lacing down the glass.
Melon, citrus (grapefruit), and some mild pine and dank marijuana in the aroma. Those are all good things.
The flavor translates well--impressive, just like the aroma with moderate bitterness. The melon and grapefruit flavors rise above the marijuana and pine notes. The flavors, unfortunately, seemed to come apart somewhat as the beer warmed, with more harsh alcohol present on the finish. That being said, it wasn't distracting, but my initial sniffs and sips were better than the ones following.
Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
An excellent DIPA. Would drink again.

Bottle of Citra Ninja into FFF Teku
A - Deep, hazy orange with a light brown accents. Off-white rocky head with small layer of foam.
S - Loads of citrus hops (tangerine and orange) with slight grassy aspect to it. Slight candied orange peel as well. Drink it on the warmer end because as it warms up, the nose gets really good.
T - Loads of citrus hops that have orange, tangerine, lemon, and other citrus hops. As it carries on, there is a big hit of grapefruit and pine that leave a slight bitter aspect to cut the sweetness. There is a light grassy aspect as well. There is a slight boozy kick near the finish
M - Thick body with a slight syrupiness to it. Good amount of carbonation as well. The finish leaves a hop resin on the tongue and is slightly astringent.
O - Solid IPA with loads of Citra flavor. Good citrus flavor with tangerine and orange up front, a touch of grassy hops and slight bitterness. Definitely a great offering from Pipeworks.

(Served in a Teku)
A- This beer pours a clear deep copper glow with a wall of microbubbles gliding to the surface and a sticky beige cream that that last and last.
S- The big juicy green hops have a bright citrus with a slight mint hint to them that comes through even during the pour.
T- The big juicy dry citrus hops flavor has some woody hop flavors to and a nice pineapple weed hop flavor in the finish. There is a gentle bitterness in the slightly dry finish and only a full pineapple weed pungency lingers. There is a soft slightly sweet pale malt flavor underneath that offers nice support.
M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a nice gentle fizz that boost the hops in the finish and no real alcohol heat is noticed.
O- This beer is a full hop bomb with only a slight bitterness and leans just a touch toward the dry side making it very drinkable and having a wonderful hop complexity. The depth seeps to grow as it opens up and it is very drinkable, especially for such a big beer.
