4.21/5  rDev +2.7%

Appearance:
The head pours very vigorously and creamy as well as white. A lot of lacing is left. The beer itself is a dark amber with a hint of brown but clear.

Smell:
The citra hops are present and mix well with the malts. I also get bits of tropical fruits such as mango and possibly pear.

Taste:
The citra hops certainly come out and are dominant but the sweet caramel malts balance it out. I also get hints of what appears to be mint and tropical fruits as well. The Belgian yeast also comes out very well to balance out the strong hop flavor.

Mouthfeel:
Biting carbonation and medium bodied. Very smooth. The beer feels fairly thick.

Overall:
A fairly good DIPA and one that I plan to come back to when I can.

Actually a Belgian DIPA. ~90 IBU. Brewed on election day to help stimulate the independent Citra party.

Peachy orange color. Bubble island retention that's plenty sticky. Came in a nifty flip top growler.

Smells like citra, wondrous citra. Yeast contributes a rustic, farmy character.

Dank tangerine and pineapple up front with an intense palette wiping dry, farmy grapefruit in back. Dry, grapefruit bitter aftertaste that doesn't linger so much as it never leaves.

Goes good with pad thai and new year's day football. This is some high falutin' stuff.

A- The appearance was a hazy golden amber color with a very small amount of head. From what I saw there wasn't much lacing going on at all.

S- The smell has a lot citronella/orange notes to it. It's reminds me of how ones hand smells after peeling an orange.

T- The taste has a lot of fruity-acid notes. Hops come through at the end with a lot of power.

0- Being from MA, I am ashamed I haven't had any of their stuff up until now. This comes at a good time for summer and the ACBF. I will def. try to go to the brewery to grab some of their futures. Love the hops/citrus aspects and will def. be trying all of their other releases.

Serving type: Draft-Tulip
