COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light and crisp ale is sure to capture your taste buds. Not quite a pale ale not quite an IPA. This is our flagship beer which is brewed exclusively with citra hops. The aroma is an intoxicating bouquet of grapefruit, tropical fruit, lemon, and pine.

Aroma of orange. Flavor is very thin, hoppy and some citrus. Very similar to zombie dust and probably better citra is so overdone and I am not impressed. Pours light yellow with a white head. Had out of a can.

Poured from 12 oz bottle. Grassy, citrus aroma, very little tropical fruit. Very strong grapefruit with a lingering resiny mouthfeel. Decent malt balance but no remarkable malty notes. I enjoyed this beer but wished for a cleaner finish.

bottle - Gold pour with a lingering white head. It definitely has a citrus smell. It tastes very fruity/citrusy too with pale malt providing a good balance. Itís medium bodied and has a dry finish with lingering bitterness. Very tasty.

Pours a pale gold with a long-lasting white foam head. Aroma is citrus, floral, lemon, spicy notes. Flavor is a tangy citrus, lemon, and floral hops, with a moderate touch of bitterness and a crisp finish. Solid.

Reviewed from notes. Thanks Joe. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a pale amber body with orange hues and a quickly dissipating off-white somewhat foamy head. Lacing was barely there. The aroma had a ton of citrus rolling into light tropical tones of mango, pineapple, grapefruit, and then gently backed up by some light pine. The taste takes the harsh bitter side of the citrus to combine nicely through the sweet tones of the tropical notes. Thereís a light aftertaste of citrus sweet to bitterness rolling into a semi-dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable bitter dry feel rolling over my tongue. Overall, APA or AIPA, I donít know, but real good, wish I could get it on a daily basis, if I could, Iíd be pounding this in the Summers.

On tap at The Buck. Pours cloudy amber with a thick off-white head and a strong citrus aroma. There is a solid pale malt base with some nicely balanced hopping. Itís all about the Citra.
