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.

A little light on the palate for my taste, even for a session ale, but pretty decent. Taste is bready but not sweet malt and the Citra hops flavor is more lemon than orange or grapefruit. Nothing exceptional, but itís good. Seems like one could drink several of these without feeling bloated or drunk.

Cereal, soda bread, and crackers sustain gentle hop notes of lime, grapefruit, just a bit of tropical fruits, and light grass. The mouthfeel is easy, with plentiful but gentle carbonation and little viscosity. The taste is a tame bitter, with bready malt flavors being almost as preeminent as citrusy hoppy ones.

BBD 1/20/16. Pours a clear gold with a touch of amber. Outstanding head volume, world class lacing and retention. Outstanding nose of grapefruit with strong notes of orange over a light biscuit. Heavy light body with a semi-smooth texture. Perfect carbonation with a burst of effervescence in the middle a rollicking finely bubbled prickly finish. For a session IPA, this outstanding flavor profile packs a lot of intensity. Reasonably complex with a balance that slightly misses balancing the hops with biscuit sweetness. It begins with hop flavor that is rind dominated with grapefruit and orange notes. The middle brings a mild bitterness that is rind based. The finish is a slow fade of rind bitterness.

blankboy (6787) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 4, 2015
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a slightly hazy gold with an average size lasting fluffy white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma of hempy and citrusy hops, a bit herbal as well, along with some bready malt and grain in the back. Flavour follows, but is a touch watery and has a decent bitter finish. Average bodied. Pretty good beer.

Aroma is west coast hops, pine, floral, tropical fruit malt. Appearance is darker than Iíd like, golden amber with a white head. Taste is very full, lots of pine, minimal tropical sweetness and light floral characters. Mouthfeel is medium body, crisp carbonation. Overall, this is a pretty good representation of the style.

chinchill (3345) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 19, 2015
12 oz bottle served in a snifter. BB date stamp: 13 Jan. 2016. 65 IBU. 4.5% ABV. Sparkling clear golden-honey colored body topped by a weak head that does manages to leave a very durable but thin island of foam on top for a good while, and to leave some spotty lacing. Strong Citra hop aroma - no watered down IPA here. Flavor: Mild for a West Coast IPA, but admirably flavorful for a 4.5% ABV ale. Very low bitterness for style, especially before the finish.

Draft pour pint at Frankies pizza. Pours a light golden color with a big bubble head and lace. Solid session here. Easy drinking, heavy hop character, citrus fruit, and a cool, low bitter finish. Very tasty.
