Dark Horse Smells Like A Citra Safety Meeting India Pale Ale

Dark Horse Smells Like A Citra Safety Meeting India Pale Ale. Dark Horse Brewing, Marshall, MI.
Double IPA. 8 % ABV.

Hazy, deep amber coloring, average white head, lasting long.

Nice, hoppy, citrus-forward nose on it. Very lively.

In the mouth: Boom! Big, hoppy, spicy, citrus-y, with plenty of malt body to back it up, which goes against the grain of the modern IPA, especially ones with Citra. Plenty of pep on the palate here. Lush, sweet malt meets high hops. This one tastes good, and I like it. Good beer, and you can, etcetera.

This one was in an IPA sampler pack that Dave A. purchased and gave some to me, what a heck of a guy.
