4/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pale, honey-toned, lightly hazed body with a tall, dense, creamyish, lightly yellowed head.

Smell: Moist citrus fruit peels, a bit pithy and citric, but agreeably fruity, with slightly lesser grassy, floral, resinous nose atop the lightly bready pale malt base.

Taste: Pale malts, lightly biscuity, bready accents and a treacle-glazed cookie sweetness. Bright Simcoe flavor, citrusy, floral, but also lightly grassy, resiny. Moderate bitterness. Alcohol warmth noted, but it's minute. Leisurely drying with a light, lingering grassiness on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is fairly fluffy from the suds.

Overall: Nice, fresh hoppiness.

2014 Citra edition on draught.

Appearance: Moderately cloudy orange with an off white head. Great lacing.

Aroma/Flavor: I can smell it from the table, huge burst of orange and grapefruit pulp. on the palate its intensely hop forward with the same notes, but smooth almost non existent bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Just a touch of residual sugar and medium body compliments the sweet hop flavors well.

Overall: This is what every single wet hopped IPA should taste like. Don't give me an amber wet hop with 30 IBUs. Let me tastes the hops.
