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.

AndresTM (420) - Texas, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Cereal, soda bread, and crackers sustain gentle hop notes of lime, grapefruit, just a bit of tropical fruits, and light grass. The mouthfeel is easy, with plentiful but gentle carbonation and little viscosity. The taste is a tame bitter, with bready malt flavors being almost as preeminent as citrusy hoppy ones.

tillmac62 (560) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - NOV 10, 2015
BBD 1/20/16. Pours a clear gold with a touch of amber. Outstanding head volume, world class lacing and retention. Outstanding nose of grapefruit with strong notes of orange over a light biscuit. Heavy light body with a semi-smooth texture. Perfect carbonation with a burst of effervescence in the middle a rollicking finely bubbled prickly finish. For a session IPA, this outstanding flavor profile packs a lot of intensity. Reasonably complex with a balance that slightly misses balancing the hops with biscuit sweetness. It begins with hop flavor that is rind dominated with grapefruit and orange notes. The middle brings a mild bitterness that is rind based. The finish is a slow fade of rind bitterness.

blankboy (6918) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 4, 2015
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a slightly hazy gold with an average size lasting fluffy white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma of hempy and citrusy hops, a bit herbal as well, along with some bready malt and grain in the back. Flavour follows, but is a touch watery and has a decent bitter finish. Average bodied. Pretty good beer.

ebone1988 (765) - Taylor, Michigan, USA - OCT 21, 2015
Aroma is west coast hops, pine, floral, tropical fruit malt. Appearance is darker than I’d like, golden amber with a white head. Taste is very full, lots of pine, minimal tropical sweetness and light floral characters. Mouthfeel is medium body, crisp carbonation. Overall, this is a pretty good representation of the style.

czar (6494) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 19, 2015
bottle courtesy of mister minderbinder, many thanks bro! clear bright gold with a small reviving white cap, some retention and lacing. sulfuric citrus, pale lean spicy maltiness, white grapes - white wine, nelson-esques, faint catpee, some apricot fruitiness, clean. moderate carbonation, light body - almost oily; balanced grassy-spicy-grapefruity finish. nothing explosive, but a perty nice citra session offering.

chinchill (3586) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 19, 2015
12 oz bottle served in a snifter. BB date stamp: 13 Jan. 2016. 65 IBU. 4.5% ABV. Sparkling clear golden-honey colored body topped by a weak head that does manages to leave a very durable but thin island of foam on top for a good while, and to leave some spotty lacing. Strong Citra hop aroma - no watered down IPA here. Flavor: Mild for a West Coast IPA, but admirably flavorful for a 4.5% ABV ale. Very low bitterness for style, especially before the finish.

andrewje41 (2024) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - OCT 17, 2015
Draft pour pint at Frankies pizza. Pours a light golden color with a big bubble head and lace. Solid session here. Easy drinking, heavy hop character, citrus fruit, and a cool, low bitter finish. Very tasty.

Wittales (755) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 16, 2015
Appearance was clear orangish gold with diminishing creamy white and finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are tropical and soft citrus fruits abound with a touch of pale malt sweetness. Taste are pineapple, orange, grapefruit upfront with slight malt sweet mid sip, finishing with soft cedar, pine finish. Palate is smooth creamy CO2 with light body, lasting balanced fruity slightly drying finish. Overall a solid west coast session IPA, highlighting g the Citra hops.
