What a great way to showcase citra hops. The pour is an awesome shiny bright yellow that glimmers in the light, with a nice murkyness to it. The nose is ok, not as amazing as I've smelt from other single hop citra's before, but acceptable. The real remarkable part of this beer is the taste. Wow, this is the best representation of the different flavors citra can impart. The first thing to hit your palate is a melange of citrus, and it is in your face and wonderful, followed by a crescendo to a limey bitterness that eventually turns into nice pine trees. Covers the whole realm of flavors that comes from citra. Nice creamy mouth coating but still crushable feel.

Poured from the can into an Other Half tulip glass.

Look - Pours a hazy orange with a nice foamy head and little to no lacing.

Smell - This beer literally smells like fresh squeezed orange juice with a hint of hops.

Taste - A pure juice bomb! Orange, grapefruit, mango, tangerine, and a slight hop backdrop.

Mouthfeel - Just the right amount of carbonation. This beer goes down very easily with almost little to no bite.

Overall - Probably the best single-hop release from Other Half. It's truly a deadly beer to drink as I can probably crush a 4-pack of this in an hour. A very well done IPA!

Pour at Other Half.

This one didn't do much for me.

Appearance is like swamp water. Unfiltered and beyond.

While there's a wealth of grapefruit pith and zest to the aroma and flavor of this beer, there was also dirty sock and onion.

The feel suffers a bit too from the thick, yeasty unfiltered-ness, which along with the bitter, grapefruit peel bite, made this tougher to drink.

Not my favorite from OH.
