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.

Draft sample. Poured hazy copper with an average fizzy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bitter flavor with a medium to heavy bitter finish of moderate duration. Another good drinkable brew.

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.

arminjewell (8606) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grass, pine, some orange peel, hints of red fruits, slight bread, biscuit, some caramel notes. Taste is a mix of orange peel, grass, pine, biscuit, bread, grapefruit, finishing fairly bitter, dry. Nice and refreshing for sure!

DrSilverworm (8540) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 15, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2013 12oz bottle, thanks to umich03jm. Mostly clear orange - yellow color. Good thicker slightly off-white head. Good ample lace. Nice retention on the head and lace. Medium body, mostly (slightly medium-plus). Smooth carbonation. Not what I’d call dry, but not really much lingering viscosity. Nice citrusy grapefruit flavor. Good moderate bitterness. Signficantly sweet. Lightly zesty, in an orange-peel type of way. Nice Citra pale ale. But texture and balance pales in comparison compared to Zombie Dust. More malty, less smooth and drinkable. Citra is a beautiful hop, though, and it does a lot for this beer 7/4/7/3/13

Re-rate, 8/25/13: 12oz bottle. Forgot I had rated this. Clear orange amber color. Bubbles on the side of the glass. One-finger off-white head. Little lace. Nice citrusy citra hop character, light grass. Medium body. Smooth, lighter carbonation, lightly dry finish. GOod moderate bitter taste, minimal sweet. Some spicy, bready malt, in check and in the background. Solid citra pale ale.
