    Three Floyds Dreadnaught just blasts you with peach/mango. I remember Avery DuganA having a really strong citrus smell. Don't really remember if it comes through in the taste. (I'm thinking it does). It's been a while.

    November????? That's kind of kick in the D. Year round that nectar!!!

    To the OP - Citrus is my favorite taste. Heady Topper is far and away the best that I've tried. Ruination on tap is also amazing.

    White Rajah has become my favorite bottled Ohio beer. And near the top of my favorite beers period.

    My latest homebrew, 6 additions of centinneal hops and dry-hopped with the zest of 2 pink grapefruits and the zest of 2 blood oranges.

    I know I'm reviving an old thread, forgive me, but I can't believe nobody has mentioned Cigar City Jai Alai yet. That seemed to me to be a citrus megaton bomb. Knocked me outta my chair. Am I right, or are my taste buds faulty?

    Correct sir. Finally had it a few weeks ago. DAMN DAS A CITRUS. This, Heady, and Maximus for me are all like a beer spiked with a shot of grapefruit. Maximus is even sweeter, and get some peach + mango in thurrr

    shawnohall Initiate (0) Nov 8, 2009 Texas

    I've been looking ever since for a beer than even comes close to replicating the massive, wonderful citrus assault of Jai Alai. Haven't found it yet.

    Hands down: Cigar City Jai Alai IPA. Juiciest IPA I've ever had.

    Avery Dugana has zero citrus in the taste, was just drinking some last weekend,it's a 100% hop bomb.

    Grassroots Legitimacy IPA has pretty much got to take the citrus crown. It was even a bit too much for comfort.

    Abrasive has the biggest nose out there IMO. Zombie Dust, Head Hunter, fresh Flower Power all grapefruit. Citrus with more orange/tangerine I'd say two Hearted Ale, and Racer 5, Jai Alai.

    For me, it's Sculpin and Heady Topper. Closely followed by Pliny and Sucks. I'm still relatively new to this art, so I'm sure that there are ones that top those. If so, I'd like to try them. Keep naming more. I'm making a list. :wink:

    Honerable mention: Two Hearted, Enjoy By (5.17.13), and Mo (MBC)

    If it's most as opposed to best I'm going with Double Trouble. Massive grapefruit bomb.
