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.

Flaska på bishops - tydlig humle doft, lite gräsig i aromen. Ljus och något grumlig med vitt skum. Tydlig beska. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RichardW (1648) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle Rehills Newcastle. Bready citrus aroma, with some background mango, pours a dusty gold colour. Good tangy palate, raspberry & blackcurrant very late on, faint caramel and honey cough medicine. Gets better with drinking. Had a BB date of 6th Feb, so might have been better if fresher

zacgillbanks (2888) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Hazy golden coloured with juicy citrus flavours, orange marmalade notes with pine, gentle grapefruit and warmth on the finish. Superb and a relatively low ABV for an IPA.

Respectable beer, bright citrus hop aroma and bitterness. Flavor is bright bitterness and juicy citrus, lemons and grapefruit, some resin notes. Easy drinking and enjoyable.

June 19th, 2013 - San Diego’s insatiable lust for IPAs continues with the development and budding of new branches of hoppy brews and related styled. Here we have Green Flash’s go at a hoppy brew that you can drink again and again. And again. And again. The idea of a session IPA seems counterintuitive - interactive drinking with strong flavors yields diminishing results, palate fatigue and even illness if flavors are too strong. With that in mind, I’m walking into the Hop Odyssey Citra with the understanding that flavor intensity will be lowered a bit to make way for unquenchable thirsts. I do note, however, that this is a striking beer, and looks rich and full of verve and vigor. It reflects sunlight beautifully, and while the head is quick to collapse, the lacing produces neat little continents around the glass. The aroma is hoppy, fresh and young, with a skinny, resinous weed quality, and the flavor is diluted. Though it is here where things taste diluted. There’s still a hop note, and no mistaking the style (or perhaps this beer’s region - Hop Diego, USA), but it’s a bit lighter than usual, put still putting off those weedy, grassy notes.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - JAN 4, 2015
This is a beer that I really wanted to try and I finally found it in a liquor store cooler. Best by 1/25/2015. Pretty light, yellow to gold color with a white head. Aroma is citrus (orange and lemon) with a slight dankness to it and a hint of pine. Flavor is hop dominated throughout with lots of citrus (orange, ruby red grapefruit). The beer is dry and there is a moderate bitterness that persists into the long finish. The bitterness level is appropriate. Mouthfeel is pretty light due to the low SG/OG. Overall a very nice beer.
