Notes: 100% Citra-hopped IPA built for drinkability. Less sweet and more hoppy than most of our other hazy offerings, this one’s all about Citra’s orange and passionfruit flavors.

Pours a bright opaque orange with a finger and a half of white foam. Head retention is okay with a strong ring of lacing left behind. Aroma is papaya, tangerine, grapefruit and mango with a little hop bite just beyond. Tropical fruits bring out a that citrusy sweetness, with not much else beyond. Flavor profile is tangerine, papaya, mango, guava and lemon-lime in a tropical fruit puree. It refrains from being overly sweet despite the heavy focus on tropical fruits. Mouth feel is medium-thick with a pillowy, crushed-velvet texture. Overall, sublime tropical fruits that are arranged in an endearing manner.

Served in a 15.5oz Speigalau tulip from a 16oz can.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on January 8, 2020. India Pale Ale brewed with 100% Citra hops. Notes of fresh orange and passion fruit. Hoppy and less sweet than other P3 IPAs.

Strikes me more as a New England IPA than American. Dirty orange/tan color with minimal lacing. Smell is piney and citrusy, notes of orange, grapefruit, and lemon. Taste is big on same citrus notes and pine, juicy and slightly bitter. Feel is mildly creamy, lightly medium bodied, very mouth watering, minimal alcohol presence. Balanced, flavorful, excellent Citra representation.

Released 1/8/20; drank same day (!) @ the Yarchives.

Opaque dull yellow/orange appearance.

A rough pour yielded a nice off-white head; frothy, tree-rung lace.

Orange peel, dry grass & lemon notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Orange peel, lemon & faint cream flavors up front; dry grass notes on the finish.

A nice balance between citrus & grassy dryness; this is one of Phase Three's better IPA efforts.
