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.

5000 (6300) - 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.

Had this one at Rustico on Draft. Poured a nice light-orange/rich golden color with a nice solid white head that left plenty of lacing. Tropical fruit hop characteristics, but perhaps a bit more mellow than I expected from the Citra. Overall a decent brew.

reebtogi (4757) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 2, 2013
650ml bomber bottle pours a clear golden color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some nice lacing rings on the glass. Aroma is quite pleasant with a definite citrus note and some other light fruits. Taste is a grapefruit hop bitterness with some tropical fruity and malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. A very flavorful pale ale that is nicely balanced and worth checking out.

maxwelldeux (4160) - Snohomish, 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.
