We love hops. This beer is a celebration of the annual hop harvest. We had a farmer overnight us some Citra hops freshly picked straight from the farm. It has a beautiful, bright aroma with a crisp, drying, bitter finish.

chinchill (4271) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 15, 2013
On tap at the brewpub in 2011 (from notes). Orange-amber leaning towards orange. Thin top coat does not last long. Medium body. A bit syrupy woith a little hop bite. Aroma is very fruity, with an emphasis on citrus. Earthy caramel malt. Sweet to start, then moderately bitter. Bit earthy. Not quite as fresh tasting as hoped.

On draft at brewpub poured an orange color with aromas of sweet malt, citrus and orange peel. Flavors are the same, citrus, hops, and bitter peel on the back end.

Very cloudy orange with light lacing. Very aromatic with fresh orange, grapefruit, white flower & grass notes. Light, clean, floral palate, not over-hopped. Almost creamy finish. Nicely balanced.

Sample at brewpub. Comes cloudy gold with small white head. Aroma of yeast and citrus. Taste is bread, citrus and floral hops. Refreshing and enjoyable.

ChainGangGuy (4803) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Appearance: Served a hazed orange-hued body with a slim, ivory head. Smell: A slightly chewy breadiness with a hint of promised sweetness in the flavor with a shaving or two of fresh citrus peel. Taste: Moderately sweet in the fore with a notable breadiness, then, some florals and a portion of fruity citrus juice. Only slightly bitter, but its enough to carry you along to a drying, fruity finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Barely on both accounts, though. Overall: A nice ale that, while fresh-tasting, was never particularly hard-hitting in its flavor or bitterness.
