Crowler, shared with friends on 5/26 - Citraquench'l pours a light, attractive yellow-orange. It looks a bit like Tang, actually, plus carb! It smells fantastic - sweet and full of citrus.

The taste and mouth feel are light and refreshing, with lots of orange and citrus. It's also fairly yeasty, chewy, and hoppy - though not bitter.

I really like this beer. This would easily be a go-to summer beer were it in my distribution.

Poured from a three hour old crowler. 
Pours a hazy yellow with two fingers of white head.
Smells of citrus, orange, pineapple, grapefruit, faint herbal notes.
Taste follows to a tee. Juicy sweet citrus balanced with a bit of grapefruit.
Medium bodied, super smooth.
Overall an outstanding beer. The best all Citra IPA I've had in awhile.

On tap at Southern Grist. Bright yellow haze with a fluffy white head. Huge Citra aroma. All citrus and berries with no catty notes. The taste stood up to the nose. Great and bright citrus Notes with a faint underlying dankness. Bready malt. Just outstanding.

A pale, murky, juicy looking beer with a nice light and sticky head. The nose is full of grapefruit, papaya, a tiny bit of green onion and pine. Sweet caramel, bitter citrus pith, grapefruit and pine. Finishes dry with a big pine aftertaste. Very good beer.

Pours a turbid, peach-flesh like color with two and half fingers of white foamy head. Head forms eagerly even out of an 8 day old crowler. Lovely lacing left behind as well. Splendid start to the drinking experience. Aroma is tropical fruits - specifically, papaya, mango, and pineapple with a sweet marmalade note in the back. On the hop spectrum of bitter to sugary sweet, this lands at about a 60% sweet. Not overly so, but just enough to welcome a sip. Flavor profile oozes papaya, mango, pineapple, sweet marmalade, and peaches. Yeast is present, but just barely so, with a dash of biscuit malts in the back. The soft, slightly grainy, calcium-like feeling keeps this beer drinking smooth delivering those wonderful hop notes. It has a medium thickness that fills out the palate well without drinking like a meal. Overall, a sublime NE IPA. Loads of hop notes that remain well balanced. It is a touch sweet, but isn't overly so.

Served in a 12oz snifter from an 8 day old 32oz crowler.

This could be the best NE IPA in the country. Did a taste test against several NE breweries and nothing came close.
