COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first in our Purebred series of single hop A.P.A.s showcases the hop variety Citra. These are used for everything from bittering and flavor to aroma. The soft bitterness of the Citra hop makes this an extremely drinkable beer.

Nice golden pour with a good foam head and decent lacing. Aroma is pure tropical citrus. Strong notes of citrus fruits and pine. Good hoppy bitterness. A great IPA!

Rating #1064 - April 23, 2014 - #mondaynightbeers - 8 oz on draught @RevolutionYEG. Dark amber pour with a bubbly, lasting white foam. Aroma is sweet lemony, mild grassiness.Taste is a blast of citrusy sweetness, tempered by a decent punch of hoppy bitterness. Not unbelievably memorable, but a decent APA for a single-hop showcase.

Keg at World of Beer Charlottesville, 10/15/14. Pours a clear yellow with a thin creamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of citrus, candied citrus, tropical fruits, lime, lemongrass, pale malt. The taste is tropical, herbal, citrus hops, pale crackery malt. Medium bodied, mild lingering bitterness.

On draught at the Winston in Saskatoon. Pours fairly clear amber, decent head that flattens out, lots of lacing. Smells of pine, sweet toffee and lemon citrus. Taste is malty biscuit with a good balance of mild citrus hop. Easy drinking with moderate complexity. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly below the Green Flash citra. They nailed the nose. Great job Laughing Dog!

Aromas of sharp earthy hops, citrusy, somewhat piney. Clear deep gold with a mostly lasting white head. Dry, bitter, somewhat floral. Light-medium bodied.

Frahmo (316) - Idaho, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Amber pour with an off white head. Mild hop aroma and flavor with a bitter finish. Great way to show off the single hop flavor/aroma.

Sammy (8912) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2014
Fresh bottle from Zyn’s. Maybe you take hoppy beers overdue off shelf. I was going for the last chance free check, and this was one of the bottles. Not too drinkable but high acid yes.

maxwelldeux (3791) - Everett, Washington, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear light amber color with a moderate off white head on there. Nose is lightly grassy and earthy, and doesn’t seem all that appealing. Taste is lightly bitter, but earthy and dirty. Not all that great for me.

dresden (938) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUL 16, 2014
Dark gold, clear with white head. Aroma is citra - tropical fruit, light pine. Body is a bit nastier than I might prefer, but tough to go wrong I guess. Zd, this is not.
