COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Draft at Snallygaster 2014. Poured a clear amber color with a small white head. Aroma was light citrus notes, some light malt. Flavor was refreshing, heavy hop notes, mild alcohol - easy drinking.

zsb19 (163) - Cincinnati, Kentucky, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Aroma is outstand and full of juicy citrus....orange, lemon and red grapefruit. Light hazy yellow with thick fluffy white head. Taste is lemony citrus upfront that develops into sweet red grapefruit/orange style citrus mid-palate and fades into more bitter grapefruit that lingers nicely on the follow through. Palate is somewhat thin with some light carbonation noticeable. Overall this is one of the better session IPAs I have had so far. A delicious citrus hop bomb that you can drink all day.....whatís not to love?

Clear golden with a thick white head. Aroma is light grapefruit and mildly floral hops. Flavor is grapefruit hops with a very mildly sticky mouthfeel. Clean and crisp bitterness in the finish, bit of a snap to it. Wife: 3.7

Bottle. Hazed amber with a short white head. Lots of floral and citrus hops in the nose along with soft malt and light caramel notes. Taste is big citrus, floral hops, light tropical fruit notes, caramel and toasted malt. Body is medium with a moderate bubbly carbonation and a light lingering hop bitterness. Slight resinous feel as well. Ends with more floral hops, citrus fruit, tropical fruit, hop resins, caramel and soft malt. Delicious!

Another (imagine that) winner from the GF Hop Odyssey Series. Excellent showcase of the Citra hop here blasting citrus up the nose with hints of lemon and zest all over. Similar flavor, super drinkable but full bodied, love the zesty dry finish! Winner!

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.
