What a great way to showcase citra hops. The pour is an awesome shiny bright yellow that glimmers in the light, with a nice murkyness to it. The nose is ok, not as amazing as I've smelt from other single hop citra's before, but acceptable. The real remarkable part of this beer is the taste. Wow, this is the best representation of the different flavors citra can impart. The first thing to hit your palate is a melange of citrus, and it is in your face and wonderful, followed by a crescendo to a limey bitterness that eventually turns into nice pine trees. Covers the whole realm of flavors that comes from citra. Nice creamy mouth coating but still crushable feel.

Poured from the can into an Other Half tulip glass.

Look - Pours a hazy orange with a nice foamy head and little to no lacing.

Smell - This beer literally smells like fresh squeezed orange juice with a hint of hops.

Taste - A pure juice bomb! Orange, grapefruit, mango, tangerine, and a slight hop backdrop.

Mouthfeel - Just the right amount of carbonation. This beer goes down very easily with almost little to no bite.

Overall - Probably the best single-hop release from Other Half. It's truly a deadly beer to drink as I can probably crush a 4-pack of this in an hour. A very well done IPA!

Super fresh and juicy. Can't find anything wrong with this whatsoever. Lots of citrus... pineapple, mango, peach etc. completely quaffable and enjoyable.

A: Chalky gold to start. Starts to glow over time, burst of orange more and more apparent. Creamy off-white white. Frothy, whispy lacing.

S: Not outrageous on pop of can. Aroma has mellowed over the past couple weeks. Sweeter tropical melon, twist of lime, pure orange oil. Earthy, woody grapefruit with cedar.

M: Pleasant citric snap. Dusty comes to mind, but the body is pretty light, and the carb is moderate so it doesn't come off crazy big in body.

T: Orange-tangerine heaven. Doughy malt really persists; a touch of herbal, vanilla sweetness comes from it. But it's really quite musky, dank and earthy. White grape, lychee fruit, and a hefty dose of lime to finish.

L: beautiful hazy glowing orange with a nice creamy 1" head that fades with some lacing. S: heavy notes of citrus and fruity esters. Huge guava, pineapple and grapefruit. T: starts off with a bitter pithy grapefruit that is traced by a harsh bitterness and a hint of booze (the next can i had was smooth and no booze flavors at all). M: crisp and smooth. Perfect carbonation. Slight bite from the bitterness. O: another amazing offering from Other Half. Not quite as amazing as their Mosaic IPA, but damn close. I'll have this any time.

01/03/17 stamped on the bottom of a tall can

Pours like a typical quality looking NE IPA, nice long lasting light khaki cap and leaving ample slippery blobs and bands of lacing.

Nose is loaded with fresh tropicals, nice sniff here....

Fresh, flavorful and loaded with pineapple, lime, mango, orange notes...OH continues to churn out a load of high quality cans every stinkin' week...great stuff, go get some
