A-dark hazy gold with a foamy cream colored head
S-pretty decent scent of grapefruit and hops. Actually pretty awesome.
T-ooo wow this comes in with quite a bitter bite! The hops really come in for this. It's basically just a blast of hops and bitterness, in and out. Nothing else to it, nothing else needed
M-medium dry carbonation with a dry finish
O-it's not every day you get to try a new IPA that really rocks your mouth. I mean it doesn't really even settle as you drink it, every sip is another kick. Go out and find this of you can!

Poured on draft at U Pick 6 in Erie, PA. This was my first encounter with a single, citra hopped IPA. I loved the complex, fruity aroma and taste. The appearance was hazy copper with a nice head and lacing down to the bottom. I will definitely seek this one out again...or maybe brew a clone.

The beer comes in a clear orange color, much like other beers in the style.
The aroma has huge citrus, tropical fruits, melons.
The flavor has peach, sweet orange, citrus, then a bitterness, and then a sweet caramel malt. There is almost even a pine finish in there with the bitter grapefruit finish. The finish doesn’t linger too long and it is a very drinkable Double IPA.
This beer really helps me appreciate how good Citra is. The beer really also is wonderfully drinkable at a big 10% for a Double IPA. It’s really surprisingly how drinkable and fruity this beer is. Highly recommended.
