Great beer. Fruity taste leaning on tropical citrus. Smells great. Worth a try for sure. Eager to see if it becomes better once TG brews it out of Decorah.

Amazing beer. A lot of mango flavors. Medium to full body. Veeery smoothy. Not piney or bitter. Very enjoyable.

A great translucent yellow-orange color. Somewhat of a hybrid take on a new england style. The head is white with decent carb and lacing. Has a bouquet of aromas from citrus and tropical fruits, flowers, etc. The taste matches the smell which is indicative of its world class stature. Very well balanced between the sweet malts and bitter, piney hops. Pseudosue is super crushable and smooth. Another great Citra APA that competes very well with Zombie Dust. An outstanding beer that I would drink all the time if I could.

This pours a slightly hazy orange tan with generous foam. I'm digging the aroma on this. It's catty, but in a good way, with some garlicky oniony notes that sneak through. Citra citra citra, with a orange peel and honeydew character most prominent, with mango and melon and a touch of pineapple to round it out. It's a good one.

Very tasty pale, but I can't quite say it lived up to the hype for me. With that being said, I would regularly buy 4 packs of this if readily available. Nice showcase of Citra hops, with a proper amount of lingering bitterness. Orange and grapefruit are the stars of the show. Finishes dry. Really solid, just not a 4.5 for me.
