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 beer overall. A floral and very citric Ipa with a ton of lemony and grapefruit notes. Sweet caramel malts with light green hop notes and tons of grapefruit. The finish is bitter but reserved a bit with nice lingering hop resin and bitter notes.

22 oz. bottle- Pours a nice and lively pale orange with a two finger bone white head that wants to stick around and does nicely with good layered lace. Aroma is very nice, those citra hops really resonate, fresh citrusy notes like peach, lemon and some grapefruit, some pine. The taste is similar, citra hops, which is what you want in a beer like this, piney, moderate bitterness, dry, citrusy. Body is medium, finish leaves your mouth dry, medium carbonation. I really liked this beer, Laughing Dog Does IPA or pale ales right, itís all about the hop. At 68 IBUís, I would consider this in the IPA category, but whatever. Very proud of my local brewer up here in North Idaho!

Bottle: cloudy, murky gold color with an off-white head with some sticky lacing. Lemony, juniper shrub, ginger, and a peppery tanginess. Solid hop flavors with a sturdy malt backbone. Heavy body but also refreshing with some bitter cucumber peel in the aftertaste.

andrewturba (974) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 23, 2013
Pours a clear amber with a large dull white head that leaves decent lace and lasts quite some time. Aroma is pine, tropical fruits, and some floral notes. Flavour is resin, pine, citrus, decent malty backbone, medium bitterness that lingers a little, and a malty sweetness in the mix. Pretty tasty brew.

Bottle to tulip This starts off spicy with all the trademarks of citra; tropical fruits and lychee with a little grapefruit. A clear amber with a tinge if red, thin white bubbly head. The taste is a little peppery, with tropical fruit, and grapefruit; no surprises there. It has a pleasant taste but I feel it's lacking something. Perhaps it's a bit thin as well.

Little aroma. Straw with small white head. Clean finish with some bitterness.
