4.25/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours a cloudy goldenstraw with a one finger head; considerable lacing action

Smell: Citrus tones dominate, bringing both grapefruit and tangerine as well as passionfruit and a hint of mango

Taste: There is a bit of a biscuity malt base here though the citrus flavors of grapefruit and tangerine quickly take over; the bitterness is moderate and somewhat counteracted by the passionfruit and mango tones; the finish moves in a tropical direction

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; somewhat creamy

Overall: A little more austere than I prefer but a strong contender in the NE IPA category

4.44/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours an extremely murky medium to dark golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate apricot + burnt orange colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense sudsy foamy off-white head that reduces to a small patch of medium thick film surrounded by a large patch of very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer (approximately 80%) and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Strong aromas of juicy citrus/grapefruit, citrus/orange, citrus/tangerine, and tropical/passionfruit hops over the top of light aromas of pale malts + biscuit malts + oats with an almost orange juice-like sweetness.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of pale malts + biscuit malts + oats with a moderate amount of orange juice-like sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of juicy citrus/grapefruit, citrus/orange, citrus/tangerine, tropical/mango, and tropical/passionfruit hops which impart only a hint of bitterness which fades away almost instantly leaving lingering sweet juicy citrus hop flavors.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Initially crisp with a smooth mid-body and light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol. Amazing hop flavors + aromas as well as mouthfeel and I will definitely be looking to get my hand on again.

Super hazy, cloudy beer. Looks like oj with a finger and a half of off white head. A few random bands of lacing stay on the glass. Very fruity and hoppy nose with orange citrus and herbal qualities. Tastes sweet up front with a blast of orange pith and bitter hops. Nice medium body. Really tasty beer.

Murky dull golden hue with a short off-white head leaving some stringy, drippy lacing behind. Aroma is thick with dank fresh hop pellets...green resins, pink grapefruit, mango, and passion fruit. Big fruity hop flavors: fresh bright citrus juice - a blend of grapefruit, orange, and lime - and a colorful cornucopia of tropical fruits. Highly delicious, bright, and easy to drink. Creamy feel with a fairly crisp finish. It's hard to find a Citra IPA that gets such complex flavors out of the hop. Really well done.
