Poured from a 12 oz. can into an IPA glass. Canned on 05/19/2016.

Appearance: Pours a bright golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Big three finger white head that slowly settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A very juicy and piney hop driven aroma with a scent of ripe citrus and pine. Big citrus and tropical fruit notes of orange peel, pineapple, grapefruit, lemon, and mango. Also some pine resin and grassy hops. Malt hints of caramel, cracker, and grains with yeast. A pretty nice juicy aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a juicy and piney hop driven taste with notes of citrus fruit and pine. Upfront taste of tropical and citrus hops with notes of orange peel, grapefruit, pineapple, lemon, and mango. Good earthy hop notes of pine resin and grass. Background malt notes of cracker, caramel, and grains along with some yeast. A very good ripe taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Juicy, oily, and drying.

Overall: A very good IPA. Big citrus and pine presence as expected for a Citra hop featuring brew.

Another awesome ipa in this "hero series" from Revolution. This one show cases the Citra hop (obviously) along with a beautiful appearance and smooth feel.
