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.

22 oz bomber pours a golden color with a small white head. Aromas of tropical fruit, grapefruit, citrus. Light bodied, but flavorful, very nice.

Marheb (2307) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
L’exubérance du citra est sans équivoque et la résine de pin accompagne tout le long de la gorgée. Le corps passe de mince à moelleux, bonne amertume, buvabilité incessante.

ryecatcher (826) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Bomber. Pours a pale straw-gold, slight haze, fluffy white head with excellent retention and lacing. Nose is passion fruit, resin, grapefruit, some basement dankness, melon, grass, earthiness. Mouth is dry and medium bittere throughout, lots of grapefruit, some lemon zest, slight bread notes on the back end, finish is fairly long and pleasantly bitter. Another solid brew from GFB and another nice SIPA down the hatch. Perfect for the August heat and its accompanying 97% humidity that we’re enjoying here in the City of Big Shoulders at the present.

Nice citrusy hoppy and slightly vegetal aroma. First sip was wonderful. Much more hoppy than the other session IPAs and I like it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lukaduke (2374) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Pours a crisp yellow golden color with two fingers of white foam. Nose is pure citra love with layers of tropical fruit, candied citrus and some clean base malt to round out the aromas. Palate is focused and clean with a dry palate. Citra flavors don’t match the level of the nose but a sippable session beer in a classic West Coast style... but at $7.49 for a 22z bomber I would grab a six pack of Lagunitas instead any day !

emacgee (4147) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Pours a very pretty and clean straw blonde with a subtle gold hue. Two fingers of white head that fades quickly. The aroma is nice enough. Shows some light oniony notes, green citrus rind, and a dank grassy character. Flavor is fine. Body, palate, mouthfeel make it difficult to get much of a flavor as this beer is mostly feel. Very light bodied and dry with a puckering bitterness. Almost sharply bitter and astringent. Lack of body and mouthfeel plus the amount of bitterness makes this one a touch unpleasant.

NikkTwist (1747) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Draft at Moriartys. Clear medium-amber pour with a frothy off-white head that mostly disappeared. Earthy citra notes. More woody than expected. Some dark citrus pith but well battled with a medium-malted toffee backbone. Sugarcane. Burnt tangerine peels. Oak planks. Wildflower honey. Drying tannins. Body feels a bit watery. Have had purer Citra hop brews (read Spice if Life) but this one brings a better balance that makes it more drinkable but less interesting.

dlovell2 (900) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Pours clear light golden color with white head. Citrus aroma with some onions and pine. Light malt start with citrus followed with some grassy and light onion flavors and finishing with pine bitterness. The flavor is a little light but still tasty.

DialSquare (2937) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2014
On tap at the Daily Growler, UA. Gold pour with an off-white head. Aroma of citrus hops, pine. Tastes are malty, citrus, mango, grapefruit - lots of sweet citrus. Thin and slight metallic. Dry, floral. Surprised this is rated so high. Typically like GF, but not this one. - 5.8
