"A very nice example to showcase the yumminess that is the Citra Hop. Smooth and very aromatic and flavorful, without the bitterness usually associated with such an explosion of hops. tropical fruit citrus, buttery feel, lingering aftertaste. very nice for a pale, and a single hop pale at that!"

On draft. Big, juicy citrus aroma. Buy after that everything is kind of also. A good IPA, but nothing special.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bomber into a snifter. Aroma is of grass and straw. Appearance is a clear light golden orange with an almost nonexistent white head. Taste is slightly sweet grassy and grapefruit with a very slight bitter finish. Palate is nice with good carbonation. Overall a very good Pale Ale well worth seeking out. Cheers!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bomber into a pint glass light orange yellow with a thin white head.
Aroma is grassy grapefruit.
Flavor is quite a mouthful of Citra. Acidic grapefruit. Some lime. Carbonated well and nice to the feel in the mouth. Not a huge citra fan but this is a better than decent brew.

22oz bottle pours a yellow amber color with a bit of head. Intense citrusy hop flavors and some good maltiness. A little harsh.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Picked up this 22 at Home Brew Stuff a week or so ago, but have since found it at all the usual haunts (COOP, Brewers Haven, Bier Thirty Etc.).
Poured tonight into my CC Teku... Nice enough 1/2" white head... splotchy lacing atop a fairly clear orange brew.
Nose shows a nice tangerine zest hoppiness with good melon and other tropical fruity hops... very dry aroma with no real maltiness to help the hops bloom out of the glass.
Flavor is surprisingly tame... good hop presence, but is out of tune with the malts as there is only a dry crackery element to help with the hops...
Good drinkability, but just an above average brew... I wanted to like this one more.

tap at beer study. Orange golden with a thick sticky white head and lace. Nose is quite resinous up front, with notes of grapefruit, and a sweeter maltiness. Similar flavor, a little more malt than I’d like to taste in a beer like this, but it still remains fairly dry overall with grapefruit coming on strong in the finish. Solid.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
pours clear bright golden with a small off-white head showing some retention and lacing. spicy caramel, brown and barley sugar, toasted doughy caramel maltiness - kind of sugary, tough pine needles, herbal tea, bit of perfumey flowers. average carbonation, light body - oily and a tad sugary, assertive yet balanced grassy-spicy-citrusy-piney finish. weak non extra pale ale.

I mean, it’s basically an IPA haha. A Pale for the standards of the hop addicts KD, but it’s an IPA. And a good one at that! Grapefruit abound!
