3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Barcade, Brooklyn tap ($6): Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is citra hops, basically a bunch of grapefruit and pot. Taste is much the same. Nice and hoppy, but not very bitter. 4.3% abv was not noticeable, as this was not watery at all. Substantial. Quite good.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a fresh growler. Pours light gold, nice and clear. Slight white head, moderate lacing. Aroma is, of course, ridiculously big, fresh citra hops. Taste is a bit thin, but still assertively bitter, lightly grassy, and easy drinking.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft from the Federal. It was dark in there, but it appeared to be a clear golden with orange tint. Lots of lacing but a small head. Nose of citra hops (surprise!). Lots of orange and orange peel, grapefruit resin. A bit metallic smelling to me. Taste was a bit of the same, with added straw notes. A bit sharply bitter for me, but it was a great summer beer to consume while sweating. Super light palate, which is good if that’s what you want.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft Commercial Taphouse. I’m liking Citra. Sort of like a smoother Simcoe in some ways. Pale gold, good head. Aroma was cat and pine. Flavor matched, just enough body to hold it together. Drank bigger than it is. Really liked this one, but if you aren’t a cat piss drinker, this wouldn’t be up your alley.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2013 On Draught at brick store in decatur GA. Pours dark gold with a cloudy white head. Citrus on the aroma. nice finish. Similar to the Le Freak, but easier on the palate and decently sessionable with its low ABV.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at Jerry’s. Darker gold with good, frothy, white head, fair legs / Bright nose of weed, grass, citrus / Light body, a touch thin but then it’s 4%, resinous, mostly dry with good balance and bitter finish / Stylish flavors of lemon, weed, grapefruit, straw, biscuit / A remarkably great, light, session beer. Love these citra hops.
