12oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Bright golden hue, sufficient lacing. Grassy, orangey, catty, pineapple, cake batter, rose water and peppery alcohol in the nose. Smooth, bitter, semi-creamy, very warming, bready malt, faintly nutty, grassy, orange peel, meow, pineapple, leafy. Bitter semi-dry alcoholic finish

I get it, still a part of the series ... big ass base beer with a ton of a one type of hop carefully throw at the brew. If you love Citra this is for you ... any real hop head should give at a go as well. Bold but still drinkable.

On tap at Boneyard Bistro in Sherman Oaks, CA.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Thick foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and some tropical fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with a sweet finish. There is a medium hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a great smell that is tasty and easy to drink.

Pale yellow color. served with a minimal head. Little lacing. Pleasant citrus hop aroma. Flavor is Sweet and citrusy. Citra is really showcased here (more so even than ZD). Low malt character.
Medium body and carb. Mild bitterness. A nice beer, that shows off the Citra hop quite nicely, but as a beer in totality, I just feel as if something is missing.
