Dark golden Amber color. Fairly straight forward pale ale where the Citra doesn’t shine so much. decent balance and bitterness but pretty uneventful.

Enjoyed at gabf 2014. It pours with a, wow, brilliant shiny clear gold body that supports a light tan head. The aroma is mild with a bit of sweet malts and spicy onion as well as something else going on in the background that seems a little berry like or juniper maybe. Interesting. The taste is smooth and hoppy offering up a pleasing mix of malts and spicy to grassy to a faint lemon grass hoppiness. Wow, smooth drinkable and plenty of deep hoppiness going on above the malt backbone to make me happy.

Dogbrick (8683) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 30, 2014
Sample at GABF 10/04/2014, thanks to my BIL for assistance with note-taking. Hazy bright yellow-gold color with a medium thin white head that evaporates quickly. Spotty lace. Citrus, hops and malt in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, grapefruit and biscuit malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Really nice aroma I mean really nice. Beer was cloudy I mean pretty cloudy. Taste was above average. Palate pretty darn good. I liked this brew

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Fruity citric hops, lighter dank piney notes, and moderate bitterness. Very light malty base. Pretty good.

Not sure of the date on this...seemed kinda sorta fresh. Ish. I love me some Citra hops (and apparantly others do to cause this incarnation of Blue House scores way better than the others on RB). Definitely a one trick pony, light all around, but features the twang and citrus kick of the Citra hops.

(tap) clear pale yellow colour with a small white head; strong aroma of grapefruit; clean, nicely balanced flavour with a long light bitter finish

Tejas (882) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Draught > Toronado. Refreshing as hell. Super easy drinker. Not crazy hoppy just as a pale should be. Not super dry either which I appreciated. This would be a regular drinker if it were in Texas.

RedSox2004 (1330) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Cloudy copper orange, three-finger off-white head, thick film and very nice lace. Aromas of floral and citrus hops, lots of orange and grapefruit. with a hint of bready malt. Bright citrus hop flavor, almost tart, with a mild offsetting malt sweetness. Medium body, bright carbonation, exquisitely smooth and creamy mouthfeel, and a crisp and dry finish. Terrific.

Bottle. Pours a clear yellow orange with no head. The aroma is strong citrus and resin. Medium mouthfeel with nice fruity hop and light dry bitterness. Very good.
