12oz sample from the distributer. Pours a mostly clear deep gold with some copper tones, nice lacing. Dank hop nose with biscuity malts coming through nicely.....well done.

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.

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 (2252) - 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 (12788) - 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.

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.

slowrunner77 (6077) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 26, 2014
"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.

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!

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.
