A: This poured a hazy copper with some light tan head.
S: It smelled like fresh grapefruit and citrus zest, with some earthy caramel malt.
T: It tasted like sweet honey malt, with some bitter citrus zest and earthy caramel. It had a mostly clean and sweet aftertaste.
M: It was slightly thick with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was a surprisingly sweet IPA. The scent was good, but the taste lacked bitterness. The body was ok and the finish was fairly smooth, so it was pretty easy to drink. Really not bad, but certainly not great.

Citra Crooked Tree backwards? Hmm, this is an oddly named brew. Still, Dark Horse and Citra hops...I'm in!

Hazy orange body with a fluffy finger of of-white head.

Nose is tropical with a hint of spice (or pine, maybe). There is a yeasty note that reminds me this is supposed to be unfiltered.

Flavor is slightly sweet, smooth and sharp on the finish. Not as tropical as other citra brews I've had. Tasty and balanced.

Mouthfeel is slick and only slightly stripping.

Overall, a very nice brew. Drinkable and complex. Seems that it would go very well with food.
