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.

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 don’t like Citra hops AT ALL. I love hops with pine and resin characteristics and those with citrus and tropical fruit flavors, but I just don’t 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. It’s hard to explain. I know that I’m probably the only one who doesn’t like Citra hops, but that’s okay. Although this is a well-made, well-balalnced IPA, I just can’t 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.

12 oz bottle purchased at Tipsy’s in Mission, Kansas. The pour is a clear golden orange with a 1/2 inch white head. The aroma is fresh citrus fruit, orange tangerine, resin and some grass towards the back. The taste is the fresh bright orange tangerine resin hop character, simple clean flavor. There is also a nice cracker malt backbone which ties the beer together nicely. The palate is light bodied with bright carbonation and the dry citrus finish, which softly bitter and mineral. Super drinkable, right up my alley.

How: Bottle (12 oz) at home. Courtesy of Minderbinder, thanks!

>>> A nicely hoppy citra forward beer that is drinkable, but not as sessionable as the name or the abv suggest.

- Clear golden-orange with a medium off-white head, good retention and little lacing.
- Aroma is nicely hoppy and there’s no doubt that Citra hops were used here.
- There’s an interesting grassy presence throughout aroma and taste that persist a while in the aftertaste as well.
- Bitterness is moderate and bring a resinous presence.
- Body is medium, carbonation is moderate and finish is rather dry.
- Easy drinking, but not exactly "sessionnable" and certainly feels a bit heavier than 4.5% abv.

Flavors: Citrus, tropical fruits, grass, resin, mild malt spiciness, light caramel.

Bottle thanks to Cory. Clear bright gold pour with thin creamy white head, come lacing. Aroma is really good, lots of potent citra notes, wet juicy hop aromas, grassy with just a touch of honey. Taste is juicy, nice tropical lemonade notes, with a potent bitter grassy finish, just a touch of honey to smooth things out. Palate is light bodied, dry, just a touch watery with good carbonation. Super easy drinking, delicious.

Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma of pungent citrus and floral hops. Taste is mildly sweet with a pronounced hop bitterness up front that yields to more of a floral lingering bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
