Poured hazy golden straw with 1 inch white head that had great retention and lacing. Very full scent of pine and citrus. Flavor was very juicy, dominated by citrus and pine. Such dominating flavors are balanced by malt to create a very pleasant beer with great mouthfeel!

I am a Citra hop fiend. Absolutely delicious. Beautiful color and lacing, and juicy start to finish. The aroma is outstanding. If it didn't taste so good I would just sit and smell the glass. Definitely in my top 5 pales/ipas.

Excellent, excellent APA. Likely my favorite around.

A - golden haze, light head
S - very solid, citrus notes are full and deep
T - amazingly clean, citra hops shine through
M - as it should be

Wonderful beer, get it when you can.
