COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
CA.P.A. is a strong hopped pale ale. Brewed with Citra and Eldorado hops which creates an amazing grapefruit and citrus aroma. This is a great beer for those who want hops without too much bitterness.

"Fresh aroma bursting with citrus, and a hint of pine. Slightly more hop heavy in flavor than your average pale, with bitter and swet dueling it out, but itís light in body and very refreshing. Admittedly, Iím a sucker for Citra hops, but this was nice."

Draft at brewery. Strong cascade citrus aroma. Sheesh, now I remember why I donít care for this hop. Really seems to dominate. Very pungent all the way through the flavor and into the finish. Very drying. Beer is ok, itís just the hop in large quantities I donít care for.

Growler shared by Eric at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours rather orange. Lots of citrus rind for aroma with hints of underlying stone fruit. Med body. Flavor is very grapefruit rind - again a little fruit follows. Strange that is not seeming harsh with all the hop. Lots of hop, not harshly bitter. What a concept. Tastes really good.

maekchu (2134) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 4, 2014
Tap at dig beer baR. Solid piney nose with a healthy amount of caramel backing. Copper color. Soft bitter initial / hops intensify in mid, and some unusual wet paper notes hit for a second or so / smooth and bitter finish. Medium body. All good, except for that brief wet cardboard bit in mid palate.

KyotoLefty (6450) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 3, 2014
Tap at Dig. Nice fruit nose: stinky mango, tropical, even some durian. Extremely sweaty and funky ass. Deep gold, nearing amber. Soft and fruity flavor, minerals, sweaty fruits, good hop bitterness. Soft and silky. Very bitter. A fun, hop-funky beer reminiscent of over-ripe SE Asian fruits.

Golden orange in color... Aroma is amazingly nice... Grapefruit, citrus hops... Flavor is citrusy and malty with nice gentle citrus hop bitterness... Extremely drinkable... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DocLock (7860) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Draft at Craft. Pours hazy straw colored with off-white head. Nose is piney hops, grapefruity citrus, pale malt. Tasted of pale malt, with big tropical fruit notes, although this one didnít "pop" the way many Citra beers do.

drsordr (1057) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Draft at brewpub, amber color. Nose dank hop and malt. Initial grassy and some floral hop. Softer finish. Moderate mid palate finish. Nothing off putting, but they had other more exciting pales on tap that day.

Tap at Craft Hands. Light amber colour, big off-white head. Aroma is citrus hops and slight graininess, lots of grapefruit too. In fact really smells like grapefruit juice. Taste is bit twiggy, nice bitterness, grapefruit again, and more citrus too, orange and lemon. Decent maltiness too. Hints of cat piss but thatís fine by me.
