COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Citra Session™ IPA is brewed with high-quality Marris Otter and Vienna malt but the flavor is dominated by the Citra hops introduced throughout the boil and again in the dry hop for maximum aroma intensity. Notes of lemon, orange and grapefruit make this hop-laden brew a perfectly potable summer session IPA.

The beer pours a very clear amber color with a medium white head, and the light aroma blends citrus hops with lighter malts. The taste is mildly bitter and mildly sweet, and the aftertaste has those very nice light citrus hop flavors. The palate fuses a slick texture, medium-light body, and an average carbonation.

22 oz bottle from Biggie Wine & Spirits. Gold and clear appearance with a white head and active carbonation. Citrus, zesty, toasty, grainy, husky, crisp. Good, but possibly a little dated.

HonusWagner (1531) - Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2014
It’s a pretty aggresively citra-flavored/scented beer for a session IPA. Way more pungent than the Sensi Harvest I tried before it. Sticky texture, but light and drinkable. Nice pineapple character. Really solid.

Very nice beer, even though i think it was not so fresh. Nice sharp hoppy aromas and flavors. Very enjoyable.

jerd16 (219) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2014
Outstanding SIPA. Pours clear golden with white ringed head. Excellent clarity. Notes of grapefruit, tangerine and a little pine on the nose. Malt surfaces in the veil of earthy, spicy notes - marris otter. Zesty citrus, a little yeast, florals on the palate. Malt is a little repressed but lifts the body to medium territory. Growing pithy medium-bitterness. Feels bigger than it is, but stops short of being heavy.

Zekada (231) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle Mogwai Bar&Mat. Aroma has citrus and very fresh citra hops. Pours golden with a small white head. Taste is too bland, but holds some hops. Palate is stray and grassy, yet drinkable. Overall a nice beer but lacks a certain punch.

tastybeer (1770) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear gold, white head. Some retention/little lace. Aroma of cheesy, citrus hop, light caramel. Taste is lightly bitter, cheesy, citrus, lemon, caramel, cracker. Palate is slick, lightly bitter finish. Must be an old bottle.

tia (1004) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Tap @ Camel. Hazy yellow with thin head. Nice boxwood/cat pissy angel, but not too over whelming. Nice dry bitterness, a touch of peach. Hangs on the edge of rubbery. Not too heavy, nice dry finish.

milewide (1565) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Clear golden color with average head. Aroma and taste were citra hops. Impressive for 4.5% ABV. Should be year around!

This has some initial hops up front and is certainly lighter than standard IPA but it’s just not as good as it would be if it were just a standard pale, like pretty much every session IPA.
