Wow. Look like this Is hellbents third year brewing. This beer is awesome. Packs flavors of a double into the frame of a single in terms of ingredients and abv. Rivers of rich, syrupy tropical tang and aromatics lace this brew from the tip of the first sip to the gut with the last gulp.

Opaque haze, blushes oranges, Buzzing half in, pulpy, frothy head. What's in this stuff?

Smells and tastes at first like fresh OJ Simpson fresh out of Florida. Then the pine and resin jump in, followed by an exotic array of masterfully blended and utilized fruit.

Feel could use some elbow grease though is still excellent. Maybe some oats?

Overall a perfect citra IPA showcase in the hazy style. Fearsomely done.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a two finger white head with good retention and thick lacing; looks good. Aroma of mildly caramel malt, citrus and piney hops, orange and lemon citrus, pine needles, a little spicy, also good. Flavor is caramel malt, citrus and piney hops, orange, lemon and lighter dried tropical and stone fruit, hints of earthy spices. Finishes with mostly piney hops with citrus notes and the same interesting spiciness lingering. Nice moderately creamy body with a good mouth feel. I think they under sold this with the Citra name, because the hops bill is more complex than pure citra and very much to my taste. Expecting mostly citrus, I did end agreeing with Dang! Better than expected and some of the other hops are really producing a dense spiciness that really sets this apart. This is my second IPA from Hellbent, after a fresh hop Amarillo last year, and I'm realizing I have to pay more attention to them; I really liked both. They are apparently canning now, and hopefully will get their brew out to a greater audience. This is well rounded and great drinking.
