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.

Clear ’dark gold’ with not much in the way of foam on tap. Aroma is hop - tropical fruit, grapefruit. Soft cereal malt background. Bitterness is gentle. Relatively complex for a single hop. Drinkable as can be.

Keg at World of Beer Charlottesville, 10/15/14. Pours a clear yellow with a thin creamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of citrus, candied citrus, tropical fruits, lime, lemongrass, pale malt. The taste is tropical, herbal, citrus hops, pale crackery malt. Medium bodied, mild lingering bitterness.

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.

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.

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.

VertBaconStrips (2163) - Asshat, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 22, 2014
Shoulda bought this a while ago. Light apricot gold with a large off white fluffy lid and slippery, foamy lacing. Just like the label says: grapefruit, peach and citrus as well as orange, slight dough. Tasty and not crazy in my face. Soothing malt with just the right amount of fruity bitterness. Watery sizzle grapefruit, citrus, peach and salivation. Another quality laughing dog brew.

dresden (1140) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUL 16, 2014
Dark gold, clear with white head. Aroma is citra - tropical fruit, light pine. Body is a bit nastier than I might prefer, but tough to go wrong I guess. Zd, this is not.

Rating #1064 - April 23, 2014 - #mondaynightbeers - 8 oz on draught @RevolutionYEG. Dark amber pour with a bubbly, lasting white foam. Aroma is sweet lemony, mild grassiness.Taste is a blast of citrusy sweetness, tempered by a decent punch of hoppy bitterness. Not unbelievably memorable, but a decent APA for a single-hop showcase.
