3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Brian - thanks! From the bottle. Aroma is dry and grainy malt with some pine and spots of citrus. Taste is light bitterness with some sweeter malt showing through and underlying pine with minimal citrus. Clean mouthfeel. Nice enough pale but the hoppy element of the beer lacks that "pop" to take it to the next level of goodness.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of mikem409. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head that collapses to a thin film. The aroma is caramel sweetness, citrus, grapefruit, mild tropicals and a mild off note. The flavor has mild caramel notes, toasted malt, citrus, grapefruit a touch of pine at the finish with that same off note.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle as Citra Pale Ale. Pours a hazed orangey golden with a couple particles of hop debris and a white head. Grapefruit orange hop aroma with a touch of pine. Flavors of bright grapefruit hoppiness, orange and lemon, some toasty malt background and a touch of pepper. A well-done, tasty APA. Really nice, especially on a hot, humid night like this.

Unfiltered apearance, i love these brews. You can see all the hop bits. The smell is juicy citrus, orange juice, and caramally nougat. Flavor is citrus, grapefruit, tropical, but not overly so. There is an ample bitterness and a soft nougaty malt presence.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Harvey’s on the Mall, Kalamazoo, MI. Fairly clear orange pour from bottle with sixteenth inch of white head. Grapefruit and lemon citrus aroma that’s fragrant. Average to soft carbonation, finish on the dry side but not too shabby. Taste is decent blend of juicy citrus hops, mostly grapefruit and orange, some tropical fruits too. Decent bitter malt as well, that’s an appropriate potency that leaves a dry, salty, burton-esque taste on finish. Great pale ale with a potent citrus hop presence. Similar to Half Acre’s Daisy Cutter but not as smooth.
