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.

jsmerig (1450) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma of pungent citrus and floral hops. Taste is mildly sweet with a pronounced hop bitterness up front that yields to more of a floral lingering bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

malvrich (191) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 1, 2015
Bottle dated best by 2/3/16 into a tulip. A: Mostly clear tawny gold with a tight 1 finger head. Few rising bubbles seen. Good retention without much lacing. S: Sharp grapefruit zest and pith aroma. Maybe a whiff of caramel. T: An initial hit of sweetness greets the tongue immediately before sharp, biting bitterness. Great malt flavor here which seems to be a rarity in the style.More pith and pine than citrus in flavor. Points for distinction. M: Very light body but resinous and sticky on the mouth. Good carb tingle. O: Overall I think this may be rated so highly for distinction rather than actual deliciousness. Even so, I agree that it earns points for standing out among its peers. Tastes quite good but the malt makes it a powerhouse as the citra is the lone hop. Citra is well showcased. On a side note, I’ve seen others comment and I agree that the GF labels need work. Looks more like some automotive product (octane booster?) however I digress. Very good SIPA, the shit is expensive though.
