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.

Bottle pour. This beer surprised me and just blew me away. It is a medium orangy copper color with strong citra smell and taste (of course). It was not malty/syrupy but a bit on the dryer side than many APA, which is exactly my personal preference. Very drinkable. I have nothing bad to say here. Great jobs Odd Side Ales!

On tap at draught house. Poured goldem color with nice thick head. Aroma - sweet tropical fruits. Taste - citrus , pineapple and mango. Palate - light/medium body and finish is smooth with crisp bite in the finish. Overall - excellent APA! I could drink several of these. Perfect balance of sweet fruits and bitter hops. Great summer time beer!

12 oz. bottle in a tulip glass. Appearance is a translucent golden brass color with a creamy white head. I’m almost amazed at how clear this beer is. Aroma is huge citrus scents such as mango, with a sweet bubblegum-like scent as well. Taste is a more general citrus flavor along with some pine and other hoppy tastes, plus a mild malt backbone. Not quite as impressive as the nose, but still very nice. This is an excellent pale ale.

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

12 ounce bottle into pint glass; no bottle dating, but released recently. Pours lightly cloudy golden amber color with a nice 2 finger dense cream colored head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big pineapple, lemon zest, passionfruit, peach, tangerine, floral, honey, and floral earthiness. Excellent aromas with great balance of tropical/citrus notes with a good malt balance; and nice strength. Taste of pineapple, lemon zest, passionfruit, peach, tangerine, floral, light pine, honey, and floral earthiness. Fair amount of tropical bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, passionfruit, lemon zest, peach, tangerine, light pine, floral, honey, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity of tropical/citrus hop flavors; with a nice moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish; with nice robustness of flavors. Medium carbonation and body; with smooth, lightly creamy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent pale ale! Great balance and complexity of hop flavors with moderate malt balance; and extremely smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

Nice light Pale Ale with citrus flavor and smell. Not overly hoppy, smooth finish. Would drink again if it is available. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had it out of a bottle. Poured a partly hazy amber hue with a medium head and a citrus aroma. The taste is boldly hops with a citrus tangy side effect. Tasty!

Poured from 12oz. bottle into a tulip. Pours copper in color with a bit of white head. Aroma is TONS of killer Citra nose. Taste is citra hops, a bit of floral notes. Very crisp, very clean. A great beer. Reminds me a lot of Hoppy Birthday from Alpine Beer Company.

12oz bottle. Pours a translucent light bronze. Fresh citrus in the scent. Taste is citrus, grass, and piney hops with a nice malt balance and a lasting bitter finish. Good stuff.
