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.

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.

Slightly hazy amber beer with creamy head, thick lacing. Citrus/pine aroma, hops more subdued in flavor as dry malt comes into play. Finish is abrupt and dry. Smooth drinker.

650ml brown bottle. Gold pour, crystal clear. Fat white cap that lasts a long time, good patchy lacework. Hoppy nose with citrus and light tropical notes. Taste has orange peel and grass and mild tropical sweet notes, malt character is rather neutral. Dry finish, quite clean, light lingering bitterness, a bit of grass and grapefruity hops lingering. Decent carbonation and light bodied. A good single hopped sessionable ale that features the Citra hops well.

Bottle: Light golden-orange color with a large khaki head. Plenty of sheet lacing throughout. Nose is a light citrus and tropical fruit blend; modest caramel malt in the background. Similar translates to the flavor profile, but I found some earthy floral notes have crept in. Good citrus and nice use of the citra as the showcase. Easy drinker.

On tap half pint at Gilly's Craft Beer & Wine in Rockville, MD. Clear, bright amber with off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of citrus (tangerine, lemon and orange) and pineapple. Taste of bitter citric hops, grapefruit, tropical fruit and malt. Medium body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
