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.

Not bad for a session ale but founders all day and easy jack from Firestone walker far better. The first taste her is watery followed by a more pleasant citrus and hop finish. Good but not close to great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pineypower (2660) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Pours a nice amber color with a moderate to small white head. Aroma is of a nice bouquet of juicy citrus, lots of oranges, grapefruit, light tropical notes and bread crusts. Taste is a nice punch of juicy citrus, grapefruit, light lemon, lots of fresh oranges, light doughy bread notes. Very tasty session IPA.

scarletfire65 (1057) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle at home. Aroma of stonefruit, passionfruit, jasmine, pine. Extremely light bodied. Feels frail. Pleasant, dry, Kolsch like finish. More like an APA than a SIPA.

PhillyBeer2112 (2596) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Nose is pleasing with a big citrus, dank bag o weed nose, hints of sweat socks. Flavor more citrusy, bitter grapefruit rind. The attempt at making it a sessionable beer seemed to have failed a bit though, creating a palate that is very watery, thin, crackery dry malts easily dominated by hop resins that swarm all over the palate. Not as drinkable as it could be. Hazy pale gold with nice lacing.

probstblueribbon (3206) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2014
1 pint, 6 oz bottle from BOTW, served cool in a tulip glass. Great golden with a thin white head. Strong, typical Citra...lemony and dank with some cat pee, grainy maltiness. Medium+ body with gentle carbonation. Pretty nice, as long as you like Citra!

Draft at Brookland Pint. Hazy golden yellow color, fluffy white head. Nice aroma of grapefruit, pineapple. Light bitter fruit in the taste, easy drinking.

Flaska Bishops örebro. Äppeljuicefärgad. Blommig och fruktig doft. Ananas, passionsfrukt. Ganska platt smak. Fruktigheten följer dessvärre inte med från doften utan den går mer åt det lättare malthållet. Lätt frisk och trevlig.

Flaska på bishop. Ljust kopparfärgad med vitt skum. Kraftig humledoft med lätt inslag av anis. Lätt och krispig smak utan fruktighet med trevlig efterbeska.

Ernest (6542) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, lemon), with light notes of garlic and onion. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Pretty one-dimensional in the nose with the grapefruity hops, and the secondary onion/garlic odor (albeit light) doesn’t help either. But it’s pretty nice in the mouth, where it’s got plenty of body and texture for its diminutive size, and is balanced well too...not too stark or too sweet. Nice that the head lasts too. I wish the aroma was cleaner and more interesting, but it’s ok as a brainless quaffer.

piscator34 (2036) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle shared with oakbluff. Pale gold in colour with medium carbonation. Dank aromas of tangerine and weed, with just a hint of crispy pale malt. Flavors begin with a blast of tropical and citrus fruit along with cut grass and a bit more pale malt. Dry and light bodied with a sharp bitterness. Highly drinkable stuff.
