COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Citra Sessionô 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.

Draft locally from notes. Pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have some nice citrus and tropical fruits character, pale malts, grass, light herbal notes, mild to moderate bitterness, decent for a session ipa.

July 25, 2015. On tap at Mission Dolores.
Clear pale amber with a small creamy white head. Aroma is pine, orange, grapefruit, resin, some grass and biscuits. Taste is light sweet with biscuit, resin and hints of peach, grassy piney, dry, lasting bitter finish with just a slight sweetness. Light to medium bodied, average carbonation.
Great session IPA, slightly on the thin watery side in the finish.

jdjuice (496) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - JAN 29, 2016
Pours pale gold with white head, nice lacing. Aroma is fruity, citrus, mangos, tropical fruits. Flavors are much of the same, very fruity, with a pretty solid bitterness that lingers nicely and makes it a very good thirst quencher. A little more body than I was expecting at this ABV. Quite good.

a zesty enterprise .. . citra, grass, cut rinds .. overly sweet .. orange amber .. solid foam .. a good session, quaffable pint .. . . I was so relieved that there were only five images. Thought sure Iíd eventually see a picture of me.

UXO (1490) - CANADA - JAN 24, 2016
Appearance: hazy pale gold with one finger of ivory head, good retention and patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: citrus rind, tropical fruit, resin, bready malt, lightly dank and/or catty. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry finish. (4/5) Bearing in mind that this is intended to be a low ABV sessionable ale, itís pretty good. That said, itís a bit thin in the mouth and the flavours just donít seem to pop, though it doesnít seem to have been deeply harmed by being a bit past its best-by. And, as Iíve usually found to be the case with single-hop ales, the flavours seem to lack dimension. On the up side, the Citra doesnít come through as offensively catty the way it sometimes can, though there is a not-unpleasant suggestion of that in there, particularly as it warms. (14/20)

Draught at Buffalo WIngs & Smile. Fresh passion fruit character with a sherbet feel, light bready base, citra is really shining here, finish is nicely dry and fruity. Smooth and addicting stuff, one more please.

jc1762 (781) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Poured into a SA Perfect Pint showing dark golden amber, moderate to well filtered, with half a finger of clean white foam. The nose shows a lot of steel tank notes among tropical fruits of pineapple, light mango, and a little guava. The palate is moderately carbonated and medium bodied. Fruit forward of mostly pear and guava with mango in the background. Light sharp IPA bitterness rounds off the finish. The linger shows the same fruit flavors on the palate. A very well made session IPA.
