Gold with a light froth which can be stirred up with a vigorous pour. Aroma has some citrus and lots of the accidental Citra byproduct. Body is a nice sweetish malt with a peppery hop flavour. Just don’t think of the cats.

Draft at Barrel Republic. Pours clear bright gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like lemon, grapefruit, dry citrus hops, cracker malt, and a hint of sweet fruit. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like grapefruit, lemon, citrus hops, fruity, and cookie malt.

Pour on tap at Barrel & Ashes, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought biscuit, bread, nice orange, grapefruit notes into slight floral and pine. Taste was a mix of pine, grass, floral hops into slight citrus, touch of biscuit, finishing fairly dry, slightly bitter.

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

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.
