16oz draft. Huge citra aromas of pineapple, mango, pine, slight dank finish. Flavor falls slightly with not much fruit on the palate. Palate isn’t wet as with other citra offerings. One of the better session ipas.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden-copper color with small head. Aroma is citra, lots of citrus fruits. Taste is similar - feels kinda heavy despite the sessionable ABV. Oranges and tangerines, grapefruits. Not too much pine. Nice!

People who love hops absolutely must visit Green Flash’s Hop Odyssey series. People who specifically love Citra hops must seek out Citra Session IPA. Seriously. If you love the juiciness, aromatics, and moderate-high acidity of Citra, you’ll probably love this session-able IPA built around it. The brew has a light orange appearance with a pure white head. Aroma isn’t as huge as some dry-hopped IPA’s, but it’s beautiful. Orange, peach, lemon, tangerine, grapefruit, and a bit of grass. Flavor translates some of that tropical character while also allowing Citra Session to be a lighter-bodied and refreshing Session IPA. There’s plenty of grassy sweetness, toasted malt, and of course, crisp bitterness. Session IPA’s are great for the summer months. This one is extra great.

From the bottle dated 01/24/15 - so it is not as fresh as I would have preferred. But it looks very nice with its yellow, heady pour. Active carbonation. Pleasant aroma of citrus, grass, and floral notes. The body is medium and smooth. The taste has a mild to moderate bitterness at the finish. Despite being 3 months old it is still quite a tasty one.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Visual: Pours clear golden amber with a small creamy head, a thin layer of micro retention, lots of slow and steady streams.
Nose: bright lemon-orange-pine with some pineapple, quite fruity. (lvl-6)-pungency
Attack: crisp bite, citrus hop oils
Mid-palate: (lvl-4)-sweetness, (MAIN) resin, barley malt, orange-grapefruit peel, -> transitions to dry, fizzy-light creamy mouthfeel
Finish: grapefruit bitter hops, lingering hopped bitter finish.
Summary: My first "session" IPA, basically lots of hop flavour with a much slower alcoholic buzz. Okay I guess, goes better with a meal. Unfortunately the citrus oils disappear as the beer warms, leaving only the bitterness behind.
