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.

Poured a golden color with aromas of light malt, citrus, hops, and light tropical fruit. Flavors were citrus, hops, and light malt. The citrus flavors and hops quenched my thirst, but still made me want more after each sip.

On tap at The Buck. Pours cloudy amber with a thick off-white head and a strong citrus aroma. There is a solid pale malt base with some nicely balanced hopping. Its all about the Citra.

Can pour. Hazy glowing orange with a pillowy thick white head and nice lacing. Aroma is all citra. Bright citrus and pine with caramel in the back. Flavor is grapefruit, orange, pine, and caramel. Juicy and quenching. Not super complex, but super crushable.

very nice citra pale ale. Light grapefruit aroma, golden and translucent, thin white head. Nice bitter bite. Tried at Plum Market at DTW on my way to Adam in 2016.

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.

Pailhead (6337) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - APR 13, 2012
On tap: The aroma consists of light citrus, grapefruit, peach, and light tropical fruits. Its 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. Its 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.

Nuffield (4011) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 25, 2012
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)

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Had on tap at Hopcat. Served in an imperial pint glass. A: Pours a slight hazy gold with some orange hues. Nice frothy white head and nice sticky lace down the glass. S: Great citrus fruits with some nice lemon and lime peels. Grapefruits and sweet berries. T: The taste follows the nose, but isnt as powerful. Light grapefruits up front and finishes with a little bitter bit that is a nice note. M: Very light and crisp. Very well carbonated and refreshing. O: Very sessionable and some great citrus fruit flavors. Would enjoy again given the opportunity. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-02-2011

MeisterD99 (34) - Lansing, USA - MAY 3, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2014 On tap. Middle amber. Small head. Solid citrus, tropical fruit flavors. A little too floral for my IPA tastes. Basic, middle of the road IPA. Would never turn one down, but wouldn?t seek one out. Tried a second one on a hot summer day...better impression than the first try. The more I drink this beer the more I like it. It is becoming my go to for summer when it is available.
