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: 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.

On draught at the Winston in Saskatoon. Pours fairly clear amber, decent head that flattens out, lots of lacing. Smells of pine, sweet toffee and lemon citrus. Taste is malty biscuit with a good balance of mild citrus hop. Easy drinking with moderate complexity. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
