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.

tmoreau (2368) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2013
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and shaker served showing a clear, golden hue, with fluffy white head foam, and wavy cling to the lacing. The aroma showed a slight, initial sweetness, some tropical scent, but mainly expressive white grapefruit, with some resin on the back. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation, and medium, but lingering, grassy, and earthy hop bitterness. Very dry finishing, but not something that I could make a steady diet of. An excellent, well crafted example of a single hopped brew, nonetheless.

GMCC2181 (1501) - Newark, Delaware, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Growler via SL. Light clearish yellow color... nice head. Good nose of citrus notes and some malty notes. Taste is a bright citrus APA. Lemon, flowers, crystal malt, some what earthy and spices..... bitter/hoppy after taste. Good stuff for such a low alcohol content beer. Body is light and fluffy. Really easy to drink. Overall: Great summer session ale

mansquito (3338) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Barcade, Brooklyn tap ($6): Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is citra hops, basically a bunch of grapefruit and pot. Taste is much the same. Nice and hoppy, but not very bitter. 4.3% abv was not noticeable, as this was not watery at all. Substantial. Quite good.
