What a great example of a use of single-hop. Would have thought there was fruit in the beer, but it was just the brilliant use of the Citra hop. Nice hop aroma, but doesn't dominant the beer. Quality all around.

Good, perfectly drinkable, but does not live up to the hype. A little better than average.

Hazy orange with two fingers of airy, near-white head that are quick to dissipate and leave very little lacing.

Light orange marmalade, mango, peach, pineapple, spruce needles and biscuity malt in the nose.

Moderate bitterness shines throughout the taste with more spruce bouncing off against lighter tropical fruit and citrus than the aroma. There’s a flash of bubblegum as well.

Full bodied with a very fizzy feel — but with a finer, tighter fizziness than a soda, if that makes sense.

The pine in this one was unexpected but really pops and makes a great contrast to many other NEIPAs out there these days. Tons of flavor and depth. Very enjoyable.

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of orange and grapefruit citrus are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, having flavors of grapefruit citrus along with notes of mangos and oranges. There is a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This APA is packed with lots of aromas and flavors of citrusy hops.

Serving type: can

Pseudo Sue gave me an experience not too far away from Heddy Topper. The vibrance, and complexity of flavor is amazing, especially considering this is a single hop (Citra) ale. Outstanding!
