3.85/5  rDev -8.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured into an IPA glass.
A - Pours a bright hazy orange with a one inch thick head.
S - Aroma is sweet, like candied orange. Vary nice!
T - More malty than anything. Light on the citrus, fairly bitter on the finish.
M - Not as thick as a typical DIPA. Medium carbonation.
O - Lots of promise here but never makes it to the level of special.

On tap at Jackie-O's

A- pours a golden orange-amber color with a small creamy white head that has great retention and lacing around the glass

S- lots of bright citrus-grapefruit hops, a bit danky with some lemon peel, just a touch of sweet doughy malt on the back-end

T- citrusy hops explosion with notes of grapefruit, orange peel, lemon zest, some grassy notes with a sweet and malty finish. Awesome citrus notes coming from this one

M- medium body and carbonation, foamy mouthfeel with a slightly viscous finish

O- I really enjoyed the citrus hop aromas and flavors, yet it had just enough sweet and bready malt to balance it out. A superb DIPA.

Maybe what I having is already on BA, but the growler tag says "Citra Mandela". Merge if need be.

Huge thanks to JM03 for this beauty!

Pours a dark orange, somewhat hazed, with a finger of cream colored head. Juicy, juicy citrus aroma! Orange, zest, cream, bread. Taste is bitter, fruity, orange, grapefruit and a touch of lemon. Malts in the back . Full bodied creamy and substantial! Dipa heft in full force!

Sad day, when this growler is gone....

John! Ohioan! Live at JO'S :D
