12 oz bottle poured into an English pint glass. One of a few different OddSide beers my brother brought back for me on a recent trip to Michigan. Pours black with a large, creamy two finger khaki colored head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma and taste of citrus, pine, toasty malts, caramel, cocoa, and a hint of coffee. Surprisingly crisp and refreshing. Nice long finish of citrus and malts. Medium bodied, smooth texture, average carbonation. Very good black IPA here.

dmac (4546) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle from Gimmethefunk, thanks Pat. Poured a medium to thinner density black bidy under a smaller soap bubble beige head. Aroma is rather sweet, black licorice, sugary bubble gum, raisin puree, bad sugary citrus fruit. Body is medium but carbonation is too light, slighty chalky. Flavor is better, charred yellow grapefruit, light chocolate, dirt, old citrus rind and some dry dark toast with a dry sugary finish. Solid beer.

MrBunn (2536) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle. Black/brown body with a big sudsy tan head and aromas of grain dust (seems to be an Odd Side calling card on their bottled beers), light roasted malt and resin. I’m not pulling a lot of the tropical "Citra-esque" aromas I expected. Flavor is nice and crisp... a very solid Black IPA... lots of dark malt with a very nice hops presence to balance against it. It doesn’t seem like Citra in the flavor either, but whatever... it’s a good resiny BIPA.

wmubronco1992 (660) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark brown. Big fruity hop aroma. Small off white head. Flavor is mildly bitter, but more fruit and with a bit of roast. Very pleasant. Really enjoyed the touch of dark roast on the end of this. Would definitely drink again.

Dogbrick (9160) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2014
This brew pours a brownish-black color with a medium tan head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of roast malt, hops and fruit. Light to medium body with flavors of caramel malt, piney hops and fruit. The finish is roasty up front with a resiny hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Black Citra pours a dark burgundy brown with a decent tan brown head that lasts a good while. The aroma is roasty, caramel and citrus. The flavor is heavy on the roasted malts initially with some citrus that eventually shine through. Overall this is a pretty nice beer,
