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.

bytemesis (6724) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 15, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear amber orange with a large off-white creamy head that dissipates slowly with nice sticky lacing. Aroma is quite nice - citra all the way, grapefruit, resin, passionfruit. Flavor is about the same. quite nice actually, little sweetness, medium bitterness. Light body, a bit oily and watery at the same time (yes I know those dont mix!). Quite good - yet another winner from michigan!

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle:   Darker straw, a bit dirty, orange hued, small frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Is Citra the one that smells like cat urine, cuz thatís what I got on the tongue.   Does have some grapefruit and pine too.   Soft sweet hop bitterness up front, thankfully no real cat urine.   Does have a stronger pine aspect than the nost suggests.   Smooth, body and moutfheel are moderate to full.   Lingering pine after the finish, with a touch of young grapefruit.   Despite the nose, its pretty tasty.   Thanks Kevin!

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.

Pailhead (6403) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - APR 13, 2012
On tap: The aroma consists of light citrus, grapefruit, peach, and light tropical fruits. Itís a transparent golden-orange with a small white head and some nice webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with some nice tropical fruits and peach. The finish has light-moderate citrus and grapefruit bitterness. Itís light-medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, this is a damn good session beer and I could really drink a lot of this. I really like Citra hops.

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.

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle shared at tasting. Hazy orange body. Soapy residue of a head. A touch of buttery tones bring it down. OK, but lacks perfection for sure. Kind of amateur, but a lot of hop tones.

Aroma is pine, citrus, light tropical fruit and a hint of perfumed sweetness. The flavor is tropical fruit, hops/hop resin, citrus, malts and a very bitter finish.
