3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: clear pale amber with two fingers of rocky ivory head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: big citrus, pine, caramel, light floral and tropical fruit. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderately strong bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, pleasant bitter finish. (4/5)
I have to admit I’m still quite fuzzy on the distinction between APA and IPA. I mean, this is a decent brew on its own merits regardless of what you call it, and it could easily stack up against any number of IPAs I’ve had. Pleasantly hoppy, nice citrus and associated notes, and just enough malt to balance, But, d’ya know what sticks out about this one for me? The “farm fresh” label inside the cap when they don’t DATE THE DAMN BOTTLE. (OK, fine, it tasted fresh, happy? I still want a date.) (15/20)

650ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a generous white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is big citrus with some hints of pine and caramel. Taste is a bold citrus and pine hop bitterness with a light caramel malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, this is a well crafted pale ale that is balanced and tastes great. Recommended.

Wow, a great APA! Big citrus nose right from popping the lid. Clear dark amber pour with a huge foamy white head and respectable lacing. Flavour of hops, both citrus and bittering hops. Nice malty backbone, also has a nice mellow grassiness and some jasmine/floral notes.

Ceci est le citra.
Une grande bière d’agrumes fraîches. Jaune pale avec un col moyen stable. L’arôme et le goût déborde d’agrumes. Un peu du malt pale au début puis plein d’houblon.

On tap @ Alibi Room. Listed as Citra Hopped, but it seems this is the correct place for this...even though it looks like a gosh dang amber ale. Amber pour with a thick white head. Super orange and grapefruit forward nose. Fairly malty, though. A lot of caramel and toasted bread. Hints of pineapple and pine. Flavor is only mildly sweet and malty. A touch of tea and otherwise the grapefruit dominates. Tons of pine and orange zest, too. Decent bitterness. Subtle peach and tropical

Awesome aroma of resin and citrus, really incredible. Aroma lasts quite well, good clean yeast character. Great beer. Yellow clear goodness. Nice bitterness, but a bit more biting bitterness with a little more body would have made this excellent.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice beer with a beautiful, fruity nose. Medium bitter on the palate with a good length considering the 5.5%Vol. (which was printed on the label). Nevertheless a lack of fruitiness on the palate and nothing (too) special ;-)
