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.

Aroma is dank hops, pine and slightly odd/tangy fruit. The flavor is grapefruit, citrus, malts, lemons and a mild/medium bitter finish.

jrob21 (2731) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle from greens. Definite big citrus lemon and grapefruit. Lots of it on the finish. Not of a more toasty grain aroma. Finish is grapefruit bitterness. Could be a little more diverse and rounded out and complex. At the end of the day though this has a lot of flavor and is very entertaining for a session ipa.

phaleslu (7040) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Draft at Moerlein Lager House. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruits, sweet and caramel and pale malts, hay, grass, and tea. Flavor is the same, with more floral bitterness. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a bitter, tea-like mouthfeel. Good session IPA.

Ron (2772) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle. Slightly hazy, golden pour with a slick of white foam. Light grapefruit, pine, and restrained bitterness in the aroma. Taste is medium bitterness, pine, some grapefruit notes and a lightly sweet, bready malt backbone. Clean mouthfeel. Balanced and tasty - good beer!

madvike (3005) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle - Pours golden with a foamy light tan head. Nose is a bit watery, but there’s the classic garlic/onion hops, some grapefruit, and a mellow bready malt base. Not super pungent. Taste is much of the same, with the hops coming through the malt, but not overpoweringly so. It’s too bad, because if this was dried out a bit I think it would let the hops shine more and be much better. As it stands it runs watery and overly malty at the same time, with some weird astringency on the finish. It’s still decent, but I feel like it could have been so much more.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Clear orange amber color, moderate head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is lemon, grapefruit, citrus, light caramel. Medium to light bodied, fruity, somewhat sweet, very drinkable.

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle shared with the old man. Aroma is zesty citrus, floral, and grass. Pours blond with nice big fizzy head. Taste is citrus forward followed by light bitter grass and a floral malt. Very light and gulpable but nothing really sets this apart. Not worth how hard it was to get.
