Our Citra Sessionô 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.

9/20/2013: Green Flash Citra Session IPA... This beer is exactly everything I hate - Citra hops! This beer has a soft toffee malt base and does what it should which is showcase the hops. However, I just donít like Citra hops AT ALL. I love hops with pine and resin characteristics and those with citrus and tropical fruit flavors, but I just donít care for those flavors together along with a distinct MELON flavor as well. Everything together comes across as muddled to me and on top of that, Citra hops just seem to impart a soft and fuzzy kind of bitterness. Itís hard to explain. I know that Iím probably the only one who doesnít like Citra hops, but thatís okay. Although this is a well-made, well-balalnced IPA, I just canít get my tastebuds to accept this particular hop. I was hoping that a beer from Green Flash could do it, but instead this one just confirmed my dislike. Draught sample(s) at Party Town in Florence, KY. Rating #118 for this beer.

I really like single hop beers like this. Especially citra which I really liked in surly wet. They both had the tropical fruit up front with lemon to citrus and grapefruit. Some nice pine and finishes with cannibus which was not as strong in the wet. Really nice!

Session beets arenít usually my thang, but this is decent. Pours a clear golden hue, with a thin white head. Soft hop aroma and a pretty good, albeit watery hop taste.

12oz bottle. One of the better session IPAs Iíve tasted. Hard to believe they were able to get this much flavor and character into such a low ABV brew. Well done.

On tap: The aroma consists of grapefruit, tropical fruits, and light dank notes. It?s a transparent golden-orange with a one finger white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. There are some thin soapy rings left behind with each sip. The flavor starts with a quick dose of tropical fruits and a touch of mango. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit, pine, and a touch of dank hops. It?s light bodied with moderate carbonation.

Middle of the road session IPA. More malty and less of the clean tropical hops than others in the style and San Diego. Easy drinking enough.
