Too Boozy for me and don't get the true citra taste found in much lower ABV citra beers.

A masterpiece feature of the citra hop, now sold in cans. Was thrilled to bring a bunch of this back home with me. Soft feel, dank citra, clean finish, hard to believe at times that it was 8%.

Tasted from draft. Pours a cloudy yellow with nice white head. Phenomenal nose. Aroma is grapefruit, lemon, pineapple and a little orange. Taste is moderately bitter with a nice malt backbone. A little more bitterness on this then some of the other Hill Farmstead IPAs as well as not as creamy a mouthfeel as some. Flavors of citrus and tropical fruits with some pine and cracker malt notes. Definitely one of the best imperial IPAs I've had.
