Thanks Kegatron for giftibg me with a 12oz bottle of this. Poured into an ipa glass, the brew appears a golden copper color with rich 3 finger frothy head that fades slow leaving patchy lace on the glass.

The aroma is bright with citra. A slightly tropical feel like pineapple blends to floral qualities before getting herbal and grassy. A touch of mineral/carbonic character is noticed towards the back.

The flavor is bitter and pithy with lots of fruity and floral hop character before transitioning to being rindy like orange/grapefruit. As it warms up it gets a little herbal but for the most part this stays within the typical fruity range that citra is noted for.

This is a medium bodied brew with moderate carbonation. Nice and fresh hop flavoring with a pleasant backing of alcohol to keep things interesting. Thanks again Heath!

Mini review:

Surprisingly solid DIPA.

dank citra aroma. Citrus and earthy

Tastes a bit east coast sweet plus a lot of fresh hop. Doesnt get the lime orange of citrus but so what? Tastes great.

Mouthfeel: solid. Med body, moderate carbonation. Not dry but not heavy or sticky either

Impressed
