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.

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.

On tap at GABF 2012. Pours a clear orange/copper color with a medium white head. A smooth big nose of oranges. A similar and simple clean citra flavor with light lemon rind. Low bitterness. Good.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Orangish straw, hazy, huge pillowy off-white head, nice lacing.   Candyish citrus peel and pith on the nose.   Pale citrusy notes on the tongue, light sweetness, not all that hoppy.   Has a strong powdery sugar sweetness to it.   Light to moderate body and mouthfeel.   Finishes like a very airy and sweet pale Pale Ale.   Not all that bitter or hoppy.   Those aspects seem a bit sweeter, in a candyish sense, while not being malty.   Lingering powdery sugar sweetness, with very little hop presense.   Meh... too sweet, powdery, and not enough hops.   Not that often I complain of a Pale Ale being too pale, but this is one of those times.   Still somewhat enjoyable.

22. Pours a cloudy burnished dark amber with a loose white head. Lots of lace. Biscuity toasty nose. Not much else. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Toasty mid palate, mild caramel, lots of biscuit. Nutty finish. More of an ESB, really.
