Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Really happy to finally get my hands on this one.

A: Pours a dark caramel color with a fluffy one finger cream colored head that shows good retention before settling down. Moderate lacing.

S: Mango, pineapple and guava right away with just a touch of caramel. A big blanket of pine and slightly spicy malt lurk in the background. Smell is pretty fantastic.

T: Huge amounts of sticky pine resin mixed with light pineapple and mango. There's a bit of caramel sweetness in the middle, but the finish is nothing but glorious pine resin. Mouthfeel is near perfect. I wouldn't call this the best Citra out there, but I really like this one a lot.
