Draft at brewery. Milky golden pour, small ring of head. Light fruity aroma, peaches and mangoes. Taste is light and fruity. Consistency of fruit juice too.

A bit off ipa. On tap at the brewpub. Unfiltered look- nice but sour pear taste that comes off as too ripe. OK for the old hophead try. Tweaking please.

Draft pour at the brewery. Golden Color with a nice white head. Very floral with a large amount of citrus in the nose. Wonderful amount of citrus(Citra hop) and a very good balance of bitterness. Delicious brew that was light on the tongue and very smooth. Loved.

Draft at the source.

Cloudy bright orange body with a thin, off-white cap. Lovely aroma. Juicy oranges and assorted citrus. A nice showcase of citra hops. Tropical fruits. Fresh hops with minimal malt character. Mild sweetness and tangy finish. Tasty.

Poured a copper body with good head and has a lovely aroma of orange and tangerine. Smooth, tasty, slight juicy (tangerine/grapefruit) sweetness with a balance of mild, acidic hops in it and overall an easy beer to drink.

Poured on tap at Bluejacket into a nonic pint glass.

Pale grapefruit orange body color. Hazy a bit and opaque but not turbid. Fleeting white head, with minimal collar and lacing.

Nice solid and impressive aroma. Juiced tropical orange and hints even a little spicy herb on the hop angle. Rich and even a touch of bitter grapefruit.

Palate takes some interesting roads. Juiced hop of citrus even floral and green bursting but with a slight wet body. Nice astringency that seems more herbal surprisingly.

Has a ne look but sort of made for the masses with an interesting west coast flavor.

Good, if not great, use of citra hops. The aroma on this beer is awesome, and while I think this is a really good representation of an all out citra beer, I think citra is just hard to use for bittering. This beer is really good, but I think they'd need to shift to a different bittering hop to move into the "great" category for me.

From the source.

A- Draft to a snifter with a medium golden mostly clear body. A frothy semi-thick white crown rises to a finger with fair retention dropping to a medium ring. Whispy shards of lacing stick around the glass.

S- Citra hops atop a light bed of pale grains and slight yeast bread. More on the citrus side of Citra with obvious tangerine and orange leading to slight tropical and stone fruit tones; somewhat dank and grassy.

T- Billed as 7.9% and drinks fairly softly without much alcohol or sweet caramelized sugars coming out. The bold use of Citra works just enough to curtail and balance out those leaving a hop forward profile of orange, tangerine, peach, dank herbs, mint, lime peel and mango. Just a hint of pale cereal grain and esters.

MF- A body right down the middle of the thickness spectrum with a semi-chewy consistency. High end crisp carbonation and a zesty bitter finish. A hint of warming from that 7.9% after some time.

Brings plenty of citrus and juicy grassy hop tones without being a viscous nectar. Finds a balance that I certainly appreciate while still delivering me some bright hoppy goodness.
