The citra aroma is amazing. The piny citrus flavor is stronger then you would think for a standard IPA. Great beer.

Big danky peach and citrus hop nose. Light malt sweetness. Golden amber pour nice white head. Big flavors of citrus and peach lime lemon lots of resinous dank. Bitter blast with a soft malt balance. Bitter becomes slightly oniony at times. Still enjoyable ipa.

johnbuck100 (241) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2013
22 oz bottle from Whole Foods Santa Barbara. 7% ABV. Wow 7% for a pale ale,Not sure of the diff between extra pale ale and IPA, but this really borders on an very clean IPA. Absolutely delicious. crystal clear hop taste with very little malt. all citrus. I love this. But why does the reviewer below me have to hate on Christians?

Bendrixian (1170) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2013
Hazy brown/orange colour. has a very citrus hoppy aroma and a hint of pine cone but lacks a malted backbone. Bitter hoppy profile with a slight grain mid palate and a bitter but rather one dimensional finish.

madvike (2847) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 14, 2013
Bomber - Must’ve gotten an old bottle of this, but there’s no way to tell. The beer I had doesn’t resemble the ratings of others at all. Pours hazy orange amber with a thin foamy light tan head. Nose is orange marmalade and lightly toasted bread, honey, and a bit of plastic. No traces of the elusive Citra hop. Taste is the same--orange marmalaste bread, a touch of pine, and some honeyed bread on the finish. Well-carbonated, though a bit biting. Very disappointed with this one.

Fatehunter (1384) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Finger and half of head on a clear, dark straw colored body. The aroma is light grapefruit and honey. Quite nice. The taste starts off with mild bitterness moving to moderate bitterness. There’s a sweetness in the background that keeps the profile balanced. A crisp texture with moderate carbonation and medium body. It’s a single-hop ale showcasing Citra hops.

Dogbrick (8658) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2012
This brew pours a clear orange color with a medium thick foamy white head that recedes slowly. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of grapefruit, hops and touches of malt. The finish is moderately bitter with an oily citrus aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

Bottle. Clear gold pour with a medium white head. Malty nose with notes of pine and grass. Malty flavor with a grassy hop finish.

Atheist_Peace (977) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 17, 2013
22oz. bottle. Pours clear copper with off-white head. Caramel maltiness and dense citrus on the nose. Citrus and caramel on the palate. A little lighter bodied than you might like. No serious bitterness.
