Delicious. Nice and citrusy but not overpowering

Good, if not great, use of citra hops. The aroma on this beer is awesome, and while I think this is a really good representation of an all out citra beer, I think citra is just hard to use for bittering. This beer is really good, but I think they'd need to shift to a different bittering hop to move into the "great" category for me.

All citra and all delicious! Had this on tap Monday night during my first visit to the newly opened brewery. Finished the night with this and sure glad I did. Such an awesome citra IPA. Doesn't quite have the aroma of zombie dust, but the rest of the beer is pretty fantastic. I will be going back very soon to get more since they don't distribute outside of hue he brewery at this time. Wonderful light golden amber in color, decent head that dissipates over time. All citra on the nose (obviously) just doesn't have all that tropical punch you get from ZD. Wonderful mouthfeel that begs you to drink more. Finish is nice and clean with a lingering bright grapefruit aftertaste. I tried about 10 of their offerings and while this was my favorite, nothing I had was bad, and Mexican radio was excellent as well!

Had it at Bluejacket. From notes.

A - Cloudy pour with an orange colour. One finger of white head left spotty lace and a film of retention.

S - Nice citrus, lemon, very nice hop profile. Lovely zippy fruits, some passionfruit, tropical notes.

T - Orange, booze, syrupy fruits, tropical fruit, mango.

M - Good carbonation, medium to full body, decent bittereness.

O/D - Liked this one. Good citra contribution. Easy drinking stuff. Nice IPA.

On tap at Bluejacket. 7% 75 IBUs

A: Dull orange, cloudy. Thin head.

S: Peach, pineapple from the Citra. A little earthy. Awesome stuff.

T: Tropical fruit explosion in my mouth. Some grassiness as well. For a hophead, this one hits the mark in a big way

M: Good carbonation. Alcohol is barely noticeable

O: I love juicy IPAs like this. Citra 4 ever.

A very good simple citra IPA. Doesn't blow you away like Citra Ninja, but I like how it is very well balanced and mellower. Unique mouth-feel and the look, thick and fruity.

This beer is pretty tasty, with a good hop profile that is dank and dry, but I feel a bit of sweetness would round this out great, just a ton of dry citrus at from which is great but it is lacking in its finish. Still one of their better beers.

Recommend the cask version over the draft. I tried both. The flavors really explode. This was a juicy peach bomb.
