3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This one poured a darker golden color with a white head. Aroma was of mainly citra, tropical and citrusy, not much else really. Falvor was similar, medium to strong fresh citra chracter, a little subdued comepared to some of the best citra beers but still pretty darn good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Odd Side brewpub. Bartender said the single hop was a citra hop. Hazy apricot with a moderate off-white head that left some lacing. Aroma of heavy grapefruit and citrus but balanced enough out by the sweet malt. Taste is a citrus burst with heavy grapefruit almost like grapefruit juice with the pulp in there. Enough malt to balance it out with some tartness and bitterness on the finish. Pretty tasty!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bonus 12oz bottle thanks to Gimmethefunk’s 1st trade, thanks Pat. Poured an okay looking thicker orange/amber body under a smaller sized foamy light beige head. Aroma needed a little time to open up. Notes of citrus, apricot, amber malts, toast and light lemon. Palate has overly assertive carbonation on a fuller mouthfeel with a dry and lightly bitter finish. Flavor is dry toast, bad oranges, citrus rind, slight earth and a hint of dry vanilla candle for some reason.Average.

12 ounce bottle thanks to BlowOffTube. Nice floral aroma. Taste is slight muted malt and nice citrus flavors given off by hops. Nice tropical fruit finish. Very solid and very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours brownish-amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of fruity and citrusy hops plus a good amount of caramel and light pale malts. Flavor the same, with a nice fruity, citrusy hop profile. Average texture. A good pale ale, but probably can’t truly be classified as this.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light golden color. Reasonably good carbonation. Orange/lemon aroma, and slightly more malty body, but it is balanced without a huge sense of malt backbone. Refreshing front and a very moderate, enjoyably bitter finish. Spectacular brewing--such a nice, sessionable beer. (sold as Citra Pale, on tap at brewery)

Smells fruity. Purs golden with great lacing. Medium to high carbonation. Not as much leave, only a little bitter. Some sourness. Good session IPA. On tap at Hopcat.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
32oz growler by means of mikem. thanks man... growler opens with a small hiss yielding a medium copper penny brown, somewhat transparent in nature, and topped with a thin to medium fluffy white head that gradually reduces down to a thin ring... aroma is fairly citrus fruit forward, citra based, smarties alongside a fair amount of sweet backing grain - striking a fair balance between malt and hop... flavors generally follow suit with a citra focused herbal essence with a very gentle bitterness through the middle and backend but barely leaving any evidence of such on the finish. somewhat sweet through the middle but the bitterness does provide more of a presence as time elapses. lighter shade of medium bodied with adequate carbonation. this one reminds me of zombie dust with a touch more of a grain impartation. nice.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours to a glowing amber body with yellow highlights. There?s a thin white head on it. The aroma is malt and a light citrus, but too hard to smell. The flavor is graham crackers and light grapefruit. Bitter hops like pine linger. The palate is bitter and medium bodied and easy drinking. Sure is a great pale ale.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Brian. Pours a clear orange gold with small frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong citrus, tropical, and resin. Medium mouthfeel with nice juicy fruit hop, light resin and bitterness. Very good.
