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.

Poured from a fresh growler. Pours light gold, nice and clear. Slight white head, moderate lacing. Aroma is, of course, ridiculously big, fresh citra hops. Taste is a bit thin, but still assertively bitter, lightly grassy, and easy drinking.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Draft from the Federal. It was dark in there, but it appeared to be a clear golden with orange tint. Lots of lacing but a small head. Nose of citra hops (surprise!). Lots of orange and orange peel, grapefruit resin. A bit metallic smelling to me. Taste was a bit of the same, with added straw notes. A bit sharply bitter for me, but it was a great summer beer to consume while sweating. Super light palate, which is good if that’s what you want.

Kinz (3274) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Draft Commercial Taphouse. I’m liking Citra. Sort of like a smoother Simcoe in some ways. Pale gold, good head. Aroma was cat and pine. Flavor matched, just enough body to hold it together. Drank bigger than it is. Really liked this one, but if you aren’t a cat piss drinker, this wouldn’t be up your alley.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2013 On Draught at brick store in decatur GA. Pours dark gold with a cloudy white head. Citrus on the aroma. nice finish. Similar to the Le Freak, but easier on the palate and decently sessionable with its low ABV.

jstraw (1914) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Draft at Jerry’s. Darker gold with good, frothy, white head, fair legs / Bright nose of weed, grass, citrus / Light body, a touch thin but then it’s 4%, resinous, mostly dry with good balance and bitter finish / Stylish flavors of lemon, weed, grapefruit, straw, biscuit / A remarkably great, light, session beer. Love these citra hops.

jcartamdg (1934) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Pours a light golden orange with a thick white head. Aroma of citrusy hops and slight malt, citra is very present. Taste is hoppy, very citrus forward. Finish is slightly off putting kinda metallic. Not bad but the finish sucks. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
