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.

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!

Poured in to a pint glass from a 22oz bottle. Orangeish/gold with a frothy off white head; 1-2 fingers with good retention. Definitely smells like a Citra pale: citrus, peach, honey, piney hops. Taste follows aroma: orange, lemon, peach, piney and a strong biscuity/malt backbone. Medium body, leaves tongue coated with straight bitterness and mouth is dry. Overall, one of the better beers in this category that Iíve had. Itís no ZD, not nearly as delicate. Definitely drinkable and cool that itís semi-local. Definitely worth trying.
