We’ve overloaded the cyber mainframe with Citra hops in order to hack into aromas and flavors of passion fruit, orange zest and cantaloupe.

Citroid pours a hazy yellow with a giant, frothy, long-lasting, and lacing head. The aroma is dank, fresh, and full of citrusy hops. The flavor is bright, sweet, creamy citrus fruit. Good, creamy body. Overall, a big creamy, thick citrus-filled IPA.

16oz can. Poured out a cloudy, golden orange color with a small, off-white head of bubbly foam. It left sudsy trails of lace on the glass. It smelled of pineapple, guava, orange peel and toasted caramel. Bold tropical fruit juice taste with a sharp, piney bitterness. Sweet caramel and toffee backbone.

Gold in color with lots of small floaties suspended within the body. There’s a three quarter inch head of densely packed off white on top. Light lacing is present. The aroma is of dank lemon lime, as well as melon. I’m tasting lemon lime hops, melon, and light, crackery malt. The mouth is light and faintly sticky.

Pours a bright, hazy orange color with LOADS of floaties and a creamy white head that provides nice lacing. But those floaties - as the beer settles, there’s a snowdrift of floaties at the bottom of the glass, so if you don’t like floaties, this beer may not be your jam. I don’t mind them (though I’ve NEVER seen a snowdrift of floaties in my glass), so all systems “go.”

The nose and taste are world class, though - big citrus notes of tangerine and passion fruit, and that same passion fruit and tangerine on the taste, with the addition of an orange creamsicle flavor which is outstanding and very reminiscent of Julius.

Yep, I typed that.

A full and slightly creamy mouthfeel is on point and fitting for this excellent hazy. Very well done by TG.

Poured into a Trillium glass a very nice cloudy pale yellow color, with some very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy one-finger plus off-white head, which also leaves some very nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is very nice, hoppy, malty, with a very nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, peach, nectarine, apricot, passion fruit, cantaloupe), with a very nice diesel like. The taste is very nice, hoppy, malty, with a very nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, peach, nectarine, apricot, passion fruit, cantaloupe), with a very nice diesel like. Medium body, ABV is hidden very nicely, with a pretty nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a very tasty beer. Very nice to see it around here. Orange Julius! Addictive! MilkShake!
