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.

Ontape (275) - Valley Village, California, USA - NOV 17, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2014 Draft. Really nice low ABV hop bomb. Pours a clear light amber with nice carbonation. Citra hops are big on the nose and follow through on taste. Bitter and fresh tasting. Delicious.

Appearance: white fluffy head with a hazy yellowish-orange body and a mild carbonation. Aroma: Since the IPA was brewed with a single hop, citra, there is a pronounce citrus aroma. Hints of orange, grapefruit & lemon. I do pick up a hint of smoke. Taste: light malty body, robust citrus flavor on the front of the palate. Middle of the palate, lingering pine flavor with hints of grapefruit & orange. The beer finished dry, refreshing & clean. Overall: I could quaff a few of theses IPAs. A great session beer! This green flash IPA would pair well with a sharp cheddar, aged gouda, prima donna or a aged provolone, crab cakes, spicy mexican and asian cuisine.

Pour on tap, golden yellow-orange pour with white head, aroma brought big fruit, orange, citrus and orange peel, hints of grass, bread, slight caramel, hints of yeast and spice in there as well. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, slight grass, hints of earth into a nice mix of orange, grapefruit, lemon notes, finishing fairly bitter.

On draft at the Brass Tap, poured a golden color with aromas of Citra, grapefruit, and light pineapple. Flavors are the same, not as intense as the aroma, but a solid pale ale.

harrymel (1499) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 1, 2013
On tap at Waddell’s Golden with a sheet of whites. Smells like Citra hops: grapefruit, onion, musk, body odor and some fruits; a touch of grain and biscuit in the back. Flavor is nice and balanced with bitterness and slight sweetness from the malts. The hops are fruity with a bit of B.O. Light bodied with moderately hi carb and a a semi dry finish. Decent beer.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Pours gold with a soapy white head. Nose is classic Citra bliss. Nose isn’t as intense as some of the bigger beers but great. Flavor is CITRA. and just enough neutral malt to keep from muddling the hops. Dry and light bitter finish. Great.

DocLock (7828) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Draft at Craft. Pours dark straw with off-white head. Nose was hopcitrus, pronounced pineapple and grapefruit. Tasted crisp, fresh, with that citra tropical fruit flavor and a juicy finish.

beer-yum (456) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 18, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2013 A little too hop forward for my taste (and I am a confirmed Citraholic). Otherwise a flavourful and surprisingly low alcohol brew - just what the doctor ordered!

On tap In a pint glass. Pours golden with an off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and fruity hops, some pale malts with light caramel, a little spice, and some dough. Flavor the same with a lot of hops. Average texture. A pretty good pale ale.
