22 ounce thanks to Michelle. Mild orange body with some floral hop profile but not what I normally expect from citra hops. Overall slight malt and bit muted hops. Ok. Drinkable, for sure.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at brewpub. Poured deep golden with white head. Nose was that great Citra nose with pale malt, peppery spice in the nose and flavor, and a crisp, fresh finish. Bottling seems to have hampered this one, as the draft version I had was excellent.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours as you’d expect a beer with "citra" to pour .. orange-amber, sticky but thin head, stark citric aroma. Easy drinking, crisp, tight, and rollicking with citrus, wood, fresh-cut grass. A bit overly earthy, but a good time drink nonetheless. (#4850, 12/8/2012)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from State Line, 11/6/12
Aroma: The nose is citrus/grapefruit, some caramel, bread, and sweet malts
Appearance: It pours a dark orange-reddish color with a small head and some spotty lace
Flavor: The taste is a little more malty, then the nose, there’s bitterness, but not much citrus hop flavor
Palate: The body is medium, it drinks with a little creaminess, an average carbonation, and dry finish
This one is solid, but not too much more. Trying to remember back to the Green Flash version I had on tap, I feel like this one has a slightly better nose, but otherwise, I liked them both about the same amount, but this one might be just slightly better.

Amber with a whit e head. Citrus in the aroma and also bread and roast malt. The citra shows in the flavor but the sweetness of the malt provides a nice balance.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice fruity hoppy aroma initially from the bomber. In the glass: a nice lingering head over a hazy not so pale pour. Citrusy and fruity hoppiness, a little thin but not bad by any means.
