Cloudy like a New England IPA. Apricot juice color. Lasting head with thick streaks of lace.

Prickly aroma of grapefruit rind and pine resin. Mild (and yeasty) pale malt base.

Drier flavor than I expected the malt holds its own and produces a richer mouth than most APAs. The takes over but never becomes harsh in the swallow. Long, green aftertaste.

As far as Citra beers go, I love Zombie Dust. However, this is good too, just not as good. A good beer by TG, canned just a couple of weeks ago. Here goes:

A: Orange pulp. Very hazy and juicy looking. Pours a large head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Looks good.

S: Grass and herbs mixed with various light spices. These scents are complemented by faint odors of tropical fruit - I can detect a lot of lemon and orange. Very good. A tinge of onion mars the smell somewhat, but this isn't a big deal. Overall, it's very earthy, maybe overwhelmingly so for most people

T: Follows the nose. Lots of herbally grass and spice. Also fair helpings of tropical fruit. Very good, but maybe a tad too earthy.

F: Excellent.

O: A good beer. I think Zombie Dust is richer and more balanced (and with less off-tastes), but this is still a very good beer.
