Twin Sails Brewing Orange Slices Citra Double IPA American Double / Imperial IPA at 8.2% ABV | 52 IBU (C$5.58 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 22-Feb-2019, acquired 12-Apr-2019, reviewed 17-Apr-2019)

Appearance: opaque pale gold with two fat fingers of rocky pale ivory head, excellent retention and heavy chunky lacing. (5/5) Aroma: juicy citrus, clean malt, hint of resiny pine. (9/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, medium duration lingering bitter mildly warming finish. (4/5)

That’s a hell of a beer. Big juicy citrus, to the point where you could be forgiven for being convinced there’s juice added (there isn’t). Big but not overwhelming bitter leads smoothly to a mildly warming high ABV finish. And I just noticed that the orange flesh in the artwork spells out the name – nice. (17/20)

8.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
