BOD 11/4/15. Pours a clear gold with a bit of amber. Outstanding head volume, world class lacing and retention. Outstanding nose of grapefruit, passion fruit and a touch of lime over pale malt with a strong dose of grainy biscuit. Heavy light body that is smooth with a hint of oiliness. Superb carbonation level that is in balance with the body. The middle has a bit of effervescence and the finish is prickly. The flavor profile is quite outstanding and allows the Citra hop to shine. Intensity is appropriate for the style, as is bitterness. Balance is world class. It begins with grapefruit then flows into a moderate middle bitterness. Passion fruit emerges post middle bitterness over a fairly sweet base (cracker biscuit) with notes of caramel. Towards the finish, a lime influence emerges creating a nice contrast with passion fruit. The finish is a slow fade of slightly sweet zest and lime with a slight dryness coupled with an earthy dankness.

Wow, a beer I haven’t rated before! Happy birthday to me :) this one is a liquid , deep copper color with a thin white ring head. It’s a little stinky and danky. The palate is resinous and medium. Lingers long after.

9/IV/16 - 1Pt. 6Fl. Oz. bottle (>€11) from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: n/a, bottled: XI/24/15 (2016-325)

Clear orange beer, big creamy irregular off-white head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving some lacing in the glass. Aroma: lots of citrus, grapefruit, some sweet malts, caramel, lots of tropical fruits, bit cheesy. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: very fruity start, bit lemony, citrus, some melons, pretty bitter, bit resinous, sweet malty touch. Aftertaste: bit sweet, malty, caramel, soft bitterness, fruity. Probably way better when fresh.

Passion fruit, citrus hop aroma with notes of bread. Appearance is a hazy gold with a white head with good retention. Flavor has a passion fruit flavor with notes of cracker and biscuit with some notes of caramel. Body is medium light with a medium level of carbonation. Overall, I’m not sure I would call it a pale ale, but it’s a good beer. I would prefer a little more body though ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at tderoeck's place, thanks! Pretty bitter for a Citra pale ale. Full mouthfeel, nice but not fantastic.
