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.

Very hoppy for a pale ale style. More in the ipa league. Hoppy, piney, floral and very citrusy. Reminds me of a fruity ipa.

Nice solid APA. Really bright Citra aroma. Just barely enough candied malt to stand up to the hop bitterness in the flavor. Good beer.

Clear amber pour, good sized head. Aroma of citra hop, mango, pineapple, dank, lightly catty. Mango and pineapple up front. Loses some of its dank characteristic in the taste. Medium body.

Need to preface this by saying Iím a huge citra fan. This beer had a horrible appearance, way too much sediments and floaties. This was a fresh beer and it looked like an ipa that has sat on the shelf for a year. Decent aromas of tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, lemon but has a resinous scent that slightly throws it off. Super juicy on the palate, piney, tart. My first beer from this brewery, while I thought it was good it needs a little tweaking.

Tap: Pale amber body with orange highlights & a quickly sifting off-white head. Aroma loaded with Citra hops (duh) including notes of mango, pineapple, grapefruit, & pine. Largely tropical with some bitter, citric counterpoints & a notable raw-hop presence. Flavor cuts hard with nice amounts of pine, resin, & in-your-face hop notes. The edges round out with pineapple, mango, swift tangerine peel, & a bit of grapefruit rind. A touch of white pepper spiciness lingers with the lightly oily pine sap towards the finish. Mildly toasted malt remains light enough to not stand in the way or add too much sweetness. Crisp mouth feel, modestly sticky. Really enjoyable stuff.

A good pale ale. Tastes like 2 row and maybe one more malt to make it a bit darker. Itís very Citray but thatís it. Feels a bit like water.

Had this back to back with zombie dust and it holds its own! Citra is good, not a while lot of complex stuff happening.... Idk, I like it, I like zombie dust a little better, but this still wins cuz of the fact that you can get like, most places...... Itís good

Word up. Thought I had a beer. Apparently itís a fermented grapefruit. Word 2x. Odd Sides, indeed. My sides felt odd after consumption, and so did my nether regions. Youíll wanna keep some of this on hand to polish your furniture. Keep the Blatz on hand to polish your liver. Thatís how I roll. Or not.
