This is one of the best beers in the world. May make my top 5 so far. Fanatic smell. Great hoppy taste with no bitter nice. Nice sweet aftertaste but it is never too sweet. This the perfect beer to sip or to drink 3 or 4. Not overpowering at all. This beer will not disappoint.

Finally getting to try this one. Thanks, Tyler!

A: Pours a slightly hazed orange color with a one finger foamy cream colored head. Nice retention and some good lace spackled down the glass with each sip.

S: This smells really really good. Ripe tropical fruit notes mix with a spicy pine base. Mango, peach and pineapple with some musty pine in the background. A bit of caramel malt in the back as well.

T: Opens with some pine and just a trace of overripe mango. Middle brings a touch of grapefruit, tangerine and grapefruit pith, which dries things out pretty nicely. Finish shows a little caramel, lingering pink grapefruit pith and some nice pine resin without becoming overly bitter. Fantastically hoppy without sacrificing balance. And drinkable for days. This is awesome stuff.

The beer comes in a golden amber/light orange color. Super clear.

The aroma is freaking huge. It’s wonderful how the aroma is so great being a single hop Citra. Tons of sweet citrus with orange, lemon zest, peach, pineapple juice. There's a bit of a malt backbone. A zesty, spritzy aroma. An incredibly addictive smell.

The flavor is different as the fruits only really hit in the front of pineapple, orange, papaya with a hint of sweetness. However, that cuts off with a big note of pink grapefruit throughout with a combination of bitterness and drying throughout. The beer is extremely dry. The finish has light pine, herbacious, grapefruit peel, which is spot on for Citra hops.

The mouthfeel is medium minus.

A very clean drinking beer. It reminds me of white wine or saison with how dry the beer is. It is different because it has this light malt body, and simply injects hop juice onto the palate and then leaves the mouth extremely empty and dry for me.

this is a very pretty dark golden brew when poured.
awesome feel on the tongue. without being influenced by the scores (although those are the reason for me mail-ordering it), I have to say this is an AWESOME brew. being in California, i'm not totally into the huge bitter DIPAs although i'm accustoming myself to them.... but this stuff is AWESOME!!! totally up my alley. Bell's Hopslam, Three Floyds.... this stuff is GREAT. if you want the breakdown and the review, everyone else is writing them. sorry, but this review is just a praise with supporting document....
