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.

Tap. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus hop aroma. Medium to abundant body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy citrus bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew that exceeded my expectations.
