750ml growler pous hazy dark orange with 2 finger head. Nose is juicy dank orange peel, some pine, citrus and melon. Taste is similar, bursting with juicy orange, grapefruit, some bitter piney cracker malt, dry. Finishes with linger bittery sticky citus, orange juice and pith, light malt. Fantastic.

Growler, keg at the brewery. Thanks to Ryan for the pour. This really is the American equivalent of Oakham Citra for me. Super clean and well-made, juicy and dank. No ott raw onion. Gorgeous image. Can look at ti all day long. Just would prefer it to be a bit more aggressive on the hops.

On tap at Magnaball, thanks so much, Shaun, for sending so many delicious kegs! Pours lemon deeper yellow. The Citra hops shines so well on the nose and in flavor, especially on a hot summer day! The Citra has such balanced citrus flavors and no hop bite with perfectly balanced body. This beer outshined all the others at the festival (even the other Vermont beers!!).

Dégustée sur la terrasse en compagnie de Marco en ce midi ensoleillé. Shaun, merci! Magnifique liquide - comme toujours qui se dévoile à nous arborant une robe orange écarlate, bien voilée et pleine de personnalité. La mousse formée de grosses bulles blanches et vives dessine une fresque singulière sur mon verre avec la grâce d’une bière impériale. Houblons verts, échalotes sèches et gazon. Le festival de fraîcheur se poursuit en bouche avec maintenant une touche terreuse qui rappelle la carotte ou le navet grâce à cette amertume qui me rappelle autant la salade jardinière que le cucurbitacée. Tranchante, sans arrière-goût, corps mince, ni malté ni sucré, il ne serait que trop facile de déguster cette bière jusqu’à ce que Mort s’en suive.

750ml growler from the brewery. Aroma: loads of citrus and tropical fruits. Piney. App: hazy pale almost golden with medium white creamy head. Taste and palate: medium body, resinous, soft carbonation, crisp dry bitter finish. Overall: oh God! That’s awesome! Taste could be a bit better, more fruity but besides from that, this is great.

Growler at Bills. Pours a beautiful hazy golden yellow with thin white lacing. Mouthfeel is bone dry with notes of bitter citrus and super fresh grass. Sour grapefruit. Straight forward but great.

Growler from Hill farmstead. At this particular time, they had several citra focused beer available. It was almost a disservice to this delicious beer. Big citra nose, tropical fruit, peach, white grape. Excellent medium bodied beer with light carbonation. Great stuff
