3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange color with a tall very creamy, light tan/green head. Aroma is very strong orange citrus and a lot pine hops presence. Flavor is pretty watery with a strong bitterness but more grassy with a touch of citrus. Great lacing on the glass, very watery feeling with a light dry and bitter kick. Overall, it’s the definition of a "meh" beer. I was expecting a great citrus nose/flavor combo but there wasn’t enough malt backbone to hold the flavor. Body ruined the brew and made it a definite disappointment.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ Hermitage. Clear golden pour with a finger of white foam. Nose is really disappointing. All toast, bread, and buttery caramel. Grassy and husky. Some straw, a bit of orange, and pine. Flavor is dominated by the malt and sweetness. Just a ton of bread and toast. Fair amount of creamy caramel and brown sugar. A little bit of orange peel. Waste of Citra.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A- pours a rich amber with a thin white head that dissipates quickly and clings to the glass. No retention and great lacing. S- hops! Lemon, pine resin, caramel malts, floral, barley, light clover honey. Some grass and soap. Grapefruit is mild. M- medium tacky body with a medium resin palate. Decent carbonation with a light burn. T- pine, malts, and some citrus at first. Some vegetal quality with more citrus on the middle. Ending has legs with soap and grass that gives way to malty aftertaste. Fairly linear and expected but great after a hot day at the beach in Santa Cruz.

1/10/2014. 22 oz., bottle. Amber color with a white head. Happy to get out of the bottle. Caramel and malty aromas with fruit and especially citrus. Flavors are less bitter than expected, but there are hops on the finish.

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a dark gold/orage color. A small white head that sticks around with a lot of lacing on the glass.
Smell of grapefruit and some caramel malts.
Not exactly what I was expecting from a citra ipa. Too heavy on the malt although there is a nice grapefruit rind finish.
A little bit stickier than normal. Good carbonation levels.
Not a horrible beer, but not good either and really expected a lot more from a citra beer especially after having the gloriousness that is Zombie Dust.

Tasty and solid. Maybe I am an odd fan of citra hops. But other than that, do not count one me being the one that poetically describes this to a T.
I wish I had another and feel guilty for not sharing already.
