Poured from a 22oz waxed (not sure this was necessary.....) bomber into pint glasses:

Appearance: golden yellow in color, with a sudsy white head. Dissipates after a minute or so, leaving plenty of lacing. Pours slightly hazy at first, but settles quickly into translucency.

Aroma: definitely very subdued hop aroma. In the next batch of this, it'd be nice to see them extract some more scent out of the Citra for sure. Little bit of pineapple, light citrus, but not enough in my book.

Taste: very solid Citra IPA. Starts with some light malt, then the hop bouquet opens with some soft orange and grapefruit flavor, followed by some pineapple. Finishes with some mild bitterness, which gets a little more bitter with lingering.

Feel: medium-bodied and mildly carbonated. Leaves some stickiness and definitely moderate bitterness on the palate for a few minutes post-sip.

Overall: this is a solid DIPA, which packs some good flavors, but needs work in the aroma department, certainly. I'd drink it again any day, although I'm not sure of the price on the bottle.
