Poured from 16oz into Snifter. Canned on June 13th 2017.

L: Hop haze honey gold, finger width head dissipates quickly leaving behind a thin ring.

S: As you would expect an entirely Citra hopped DIPA to be this smells entirely of citrus, orange, mango, grapefruit.

T: Again entirely citrus flavors as previously listed.

F: Medium body, average carbonation, slightly syrupy, dry finish.

O: This could be better. Not bad though. I don't get how this gets rated as high as it does to be honest, not complex, simple.

Citra Hopped Double IPA 8.8% ABV | 77 IBU

This beer pours out a nice dark golden brown that reminds me of a perfectly toasted mallow. It has a nice 2-3 inches of thick head that slowly fades. The beer initially has some lacing but as it warms the lacing fades.

I was hit as soon as I opened this beer with hops. Seriously, as soon as the can opened the hops hit me. As it warmed it took on that lovely western IPA weedy scent, some grain, lemon, and orange peel.

The mouth on this one is full and refreshing. However, as this beer warms it almost becomes a little flat.

The taste hit me with a mix of hops and grain that i almost couldn't pick up anything else. After a few minutes in this beer picked up just as the nose did. Nice citrusy/orange, refreshing taste that didn't overpower you with bitterness.

Overall, this beer is one of my favorite beers recently. The beer doesn't have an overpowering scent other than what you expect from a west coast IPA. The taste and mouth on this beer is what take it to the next level. It is light, full, refreshing and finishes with just the right about of hops to make you keep the beer within reach.

Copper to brown in color with a half inch of dense off white. The aroma is of citrus hops, light malt, and floral hops. Amazing nose. I'm tasting citrus to mandarin orange hop flavor along with some light malt. The mouth is lightly resinous and chewy.
