At 8.0% ABV, Citrus Squall brings strong gusts of citrusy hop and grapefruit aromas, counterbalanced by a downpouring of bright and tart grapefruit flavor and a blue agave nectar sweetness.

12 oz can,

A: Orange. Ipa-ish body. White head.
S: Fruity. Yeasty. Good depth of flavor, not like these shit shelf IPA beers. This one has actual fermented fruit aromas. Raisin. Grape. Fig.
T: Taste follows - flavors of honey, golden raisin, fig, plum.
F: Kind of hefty, as it should be for 9%.

There is no point to this beer . It was part of a mixed variety pack, all of which were mediocre. This is just another straight up alcohol delivery vehicle and I'm sick of it

(from written notes a few weeks ago)

1pt 3.2oz can poured into teku glass. Feb 2024 printed bottom of can. Fresh for 4 more months.

Appearance - Deep hazy, opaque yellow orange body. Small sudsy white head with slight lacing, low to decent stick, and decent retention. Delicious though. 4.25

Smell - Strong citrus cleaner and floral mix. With a clean balancing apple in the middle. Almost on a bed of apple juice. 4.5

Taste - Bitter apple with an abrupt interruption of malty deep sweetness, and dry cardboard astringency. Weird sticky flavor. A bit thin, but the war between rind and recycled paper is now first and foremost. A bedazzled flower of acid and sugar. 3

Mouthfeel - I'm going to enter the matrix... 2

Overall - This is just the unironic "oops, all berries of a brewery. 2.75

Hazy golden color with a modest white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is grapefruit with a hint of tequila from the blue agave, intriquing.
The taste is grapefruit with a touch of lime, salt and passion fruit with the blue agave, slightly sweet, slightly sour, very nice and refreshing.
The body is medium, active carbonation, very inviting.
Altogether, this is excellent summer refresher with the ABV well hidden but still appreciated. Actually, I would enjoy a few of these anytime.

Citrus Squall pours a slightly hazy, golden color with a small, long-lasting head. The aroma is extensive notes of citrus fruits, primarily orange. The flavor is extensive citrus notes, lots of orange and grapefruit, with a boozy finish. Good feel. Overall, big fruit beers have lots of flavors.

Pours a medium-dark yellow color with a minimal head that disappears quickly. Aroma of grapefuit but the taste is very strong grapefuit. Slightly salty and no hoppy bitterness. A good summer brew.

Bought a 6-pack cans $11.99 Foodland
4 months before Jan 2024 stamp on can
Smell of passionfruit, grapefruit, citrus
Hazy golden-orange color
Medium-heavy mouthfeel
Taste of grapefruit, passion fruit, some tartness, oranges on the aftertaste, alcohol hidden really well
Overall a refreshing hot weather beer if you like grapefruit as it is strongly present.
