Growler from the brewery poured into a snifter tasting glass.

A: Orange haze in a golden brew. Thick white head that lasts and offers a ton of lacing.
S: Big citrus hops that come in waves. Lemon, orange, grapefruit, juice, rind, zest. Makes you want to take a sip.
T: Follows the nose. Lots of hop flavor that hits on many levels. Does not overpower the malt.
M: Pretty light considering the ABV. Moderate carbonation.
O: My favorite of their hoppy brews. So big and bold but remaining easy to drink. Perfect balance of hops and malt flavor and aroma.

Poured from a 2L growler the day after it was filled.

Everything about this beer screams fresh, juicy, sweet fruit; from the appearance (hazy, orangey golden color), through the absolutely bursting fruity nose, to the taste, it is all a poem to oranges, tangerines and mangoes. One of the best hop driven ales out there, bar none. All hail citra hops ;) !!

Pours a hazy yellow straw color. The smell is loaded with bright citrus flavors, pineapple, mango, hay. The taste follows the nose. this is a fruits hop bomb of an IPA. Loved it.
