Nice golden orange color. Super piney with slight citrus on the nose and a taste that matches! Not the hop bomb I expected, very drinkable!

Oct 31 bottles, drank 6 over a few days from Dec 17 on including once side by side with Nov 7 Heady (rough life I know). Anyway. Nice golden color (slightly darker than Heady if you care) good looking white foam. Nose is incredible with an explosion of piney fruityness. Just epic hops, juicy grapefruit and it will blow your mind. Maybe the best smelling beer in the world! Taste is equally good bitter but it feels perfectly integrated. This beer drinks great and even non IPA/hops lovers will appreciate it.

Got this in a trade with IPAGeorge. Pours a clear orange color with a thick white head that leaves plenty of lacing. I smelled it from the bottle before pouring. Huge grapefruit and mango. Yup, this is Citra alright. A little earthiness in there as well. Taste is like biting into some sort of grapefruit/mango hybrid fruit. A nice malt backbone too to round things out. I'm getting just a hint of pine and maybe a bit of onion. Drinks incredibly smoothly. Many say this blurs the line between APA and IPA and I'd have to agree. It has that bitter edge and hop aroma of an IPA, but enough balance with the malts that brings it closer to an APA. Mouthfeel is wonderful. Clean, crisp, refreshing, very light and easy to drink. Overall, this is definitely worthy of the praise. Just a great all around beer. Huge hop presence, easy to drink, and a great ode to Citra hops. I want to compare it to the likes of Alpine's Hoppy Birthday, although that one uses more than just Citra. Really just a fantastic beer any way you look at it.

Not only is this not nearly as good as it's hyped up to be, it's not even that good in general. Definitely drinkable, and if i could buy it whenever i wanted i might buy it every now and then, but this did nothing to impress me. Dont buy into the hype ya fockin nerds.
