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.

My favorite beer right now by far. Blows Zombie Dust and all other Citra hop ipa's out of the water ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great nose. Fully hoppy opening. Finished a little thin, but a bit to be expected from a session. Top three session ipa for me ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

There is a date on the bottle that says 01/23/15 (best before date? seems a bit far off). Appearance: Fantastic clarity in a light gold body with a fluffy white head that leaves lacing. It looks absolutely beautiful. Aroma: Oh wow, the hop aroma just leaps from the glass. It smells wonderfully fresh. There is a strong pungent scent, very dank, and a very rich citrus scent. It is slightly catty but not unpleasant. Really it is a perfect aroma. Taste: Right off the bat there is this nice toasted bread crust flavor and a light earthy bitterness. A bit woody with a touch of cedar at the end of the drink. Very mellow for an IPA but it tastes really good. Palate: It has a pretty average palate. Nothing really stands out in this department. The bitterness is a bit mellow which doesn’t cause the palate to suffer but it doesn’t do much to elevate it either. Overall: Yes, I definitely enjoy this beer. It is very well made in the malt selection giving it this nice bread-like undertone and a very fresh hop flavor and aroma sitting on top. I really would highly recommend trying this beer out. Living on the opposite coast that this beer was crafted in, it still tastes very fresh. I would buy it again.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAR 23, 2011
Appearance: Pours a cloudy amber gold with a pillowy white head. Leaves behind lots of lacing.

Aroma: Grapefruit, tangerine, orange and plenty of it from a mile away.

Taste: Grapefruit, English toffee like malt, finishes fruity with lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: A little astringent, medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: Magnificent, highly drinkable, super tasty and inviting. Great job.

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.

TURDFERGUSON (3954) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 24, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2014 Tap at Federal. Pours a light straw with a small fizzy off white head. Nose is fresh citra, citrus, tropical, fairly grassy. Flavor is similar, a little on the bitter and thin body side, but that’s usual for these hoppy session ales. Loving this hop odyssey series.

This is my new table beer. The Aroma is super dank floral citrus. Take a big whiff before every drink. Nice hoppy taste for a session. Another fantastic offering from Green Flash.

nimbleprop (4873) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 19, 2013
4oz pour at Max’s Hop Fest 2013. Pours a clear gold with some clumpy, white head. Nice nose, chive, orange, scallion, grass, peach tea, lemon. Flavor is nearly perfect, lightly sweet, peach, grass, lemon, chive, orange. Clean, refreshing finish. Arguably, the perfect session beer.

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.
