12oz can served in a tulip. Canned 05/17/18.

Pours hazy amber with a big head and moderate carbonation. Smell is citra and resin.

Taste is fruity and bittersweet. Boozy.

Mouthfeel is thick -- maybe even luscious. Overall, very nice beer.

I tried this at the brewery. It poured a clear golden with white head that left a nice lace. The scent had citrus peel notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with citrus presence. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it was a excellent beer.

Pours a golden sttaw with a thin, creamy, white head. Lots of lacing.
Great, candied citrus smell with melon, pineapple, citrus.
Taste follows nose with awesome malt balance. Slight spice, not overly dank.
This is an incredibly smooth character. One of the best beers i have had in a while!

Golden Amber. Sticky glass. Excellent head. Tropical almost exotic smell. Nice bite. Clean finish. Excellent. Perhaps MadTree's best

One of my frequent complaints about citra hopped AIPAs is that they could be sweeter (and thus have more alcohol). This one put that experiment to the test.

It pours a dirty golden with fine bubbles. The aroma is clean, for the most part, with a little funky hops undertone. The taste is very big - thick and sweet under a big bitter, with a very boozy, hoppy bitter aftertaste. It's almost too much.

So the experiment I wanted someone to try, yields a huge bomb of a brew. I swear I'm feeling dizzy off a few sips.

Recommended.
