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.

superspak (3321) - Michigan, USA - FEB 22, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 2/4/2015. Pours slightly hazy bright golden color with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, mango, floral, grass, light pine, light honey, light bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical hops and light-moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, mango, floral, grass, pine, light honey, light bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of pine.grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon/orange zest, mango, pine, light honey/bread and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a godo bit. Damn nice complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is an excellent session IPA style. All around great complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

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 (1703) - 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
