Fatehunter (1414) - 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.

Draft at Barrelhouse 101 in Ventura, CA. Massive citrus nose on this one - could smell it from across the table! Amber pour with a white head. Taste was good, but not the same kind of sensation that the nose had.

Marheb (2481) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Le corps d’une Kolsh avec l’arôme d’un citra en pleine forme mais enveloppé d’un drap minéral et un brin ferreux. Immensément croustillant et facile à boire.

beer-yum (655) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 23, 2015
Alluring exotic aroma followed by a superbly balanced flavour is a brilliant showcase of the excellent Citra hop. Hard to think how they could improve on this to be honest.

Tmoney99 (11222) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Bottle. Poured hazy light copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy citrus hop aroma. Moderate to heavy citrus bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Very good brew.

Ed5388 (2314) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 15, 2014
12oz bottle shared by Pizz5116 after work (Christmas Squad beers round 2). Poured a clear orange color with a small foamy white head. Aroma of light caramel malt, lots of dank citrus, and arm pits. Taste is much the same with lots of orange and lemon citrus coming through.

callmemickey (3115) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Dark orange body, medium sized white head, nice soapy lacing. Grapefruit, orange juice, passionfruit, mango, and... a healthy dose of bready malts. Medium bodied with mild sweetness throughout. Moderate carbonation and lively bitterness in the finish.

boxofrane (2272) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a medium sized white head. The aroma is all Citra hops. Really nice fragrant citrus and florals. The taste is light bitter, dry citrus. Well done.

Oakes (12809) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
Amber, hazy. Strong citra nose is unfortunately quite chewy, either from crystal malt or age (it’s a few months old) or possibly both. Taste is similar, with moderate bitterness and some toastiness, but really lacking in brightness.

beerbill (3562) - Laurel, New York, USA - SEP 29, 2014
22 oz. bottle. Pours a lightly hazed gold with a thin white head that lasted until the second sip and left no lace. Pleasant aroma of grassy and grapefruit hops. The flavor begins with malt, but is quickly overrun with brash grassy and grapefruit Citra hops. Almost abrasive on the palate. I’m sure this one is a winner with the hopheads, but its a little overdone and unbalanced for me.
