3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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 ;-)

Bottle - Leafy pine hops. Clear gold with a nice big beige head. Little pine and resin, light malts and well balanced bitterness. Nice to see something true to style, well done and skip the extra’s.

Copper pour. Aroma is big and juicy with tropical fruits and grapefruit. Nice biscuity malt backing with big citrus bitterness and other fruits. Quite big and flavourful for a pale ale. Impressive.

Pours a dark gold/amber, but is still clear. A light head also develops. The aroma is very hoppy, smelling of grass and citrus. It has a medium body with medium carbonation. The taste is of malts, biscuits, and some hops (though not as pronounced as in aroma) producing a light bitterness.

Light orangey-amber. Aroma is fresh, old school c hops, taste is the same, with lightly apricotty notes, grapefruit zest, and biscuity malts. Lighter version of the IIPA, well-balanced and refreshing.

as Extra Conditioned Citra Hopped Pale Ale, 7-4-7-4-14=36
Hazy amber color with compact head. Nice citrusy hop aroma, a bit sweaty. Dry mouthfeel, the caramel flavor is dry with straws and toffee accent; bold bitterness, not directly linked to Citra.
Quite balanced, not cutting edge but nice.
2014-04-03, cask at Alibi Room, Vancouver, dry-hopped with Falconer’s Flight, 10oz
Cloudy light amber color with large frothy head. The aroma is fresh and fruity, apricot jam, light mango, light tropical fruits, lemon. Undercarbonated, warm, with soft mouthfeel; the malt flavor is quite nice, with a toffee accent; very light, pleasing residual sweetness; quite strong bitterness, just as required, leading to a very fruity and resiny final, sweet oranges and tropical fruits.
2014-03-25, cask at Tap & Barrel, Coal Harbour, Vancouver, dry-hopped with Amarillo, 14oz
cloudy dull amber color with generous frothy head. Powerful Amarillo aroma, fruity as expected, plenty of oranges, but also metallic, green. Soft mouthfeel; the malt flavor is delicate, maybe simple; good bitterness level although it seems aggressive in the final.
2014-03-11, draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver, dry-hopped with Citra, 12oz
Cloudy golden color, dull. Fresh hop aroma, citrusy, a bit earthy. Dry and lean mouthfeel; dry malt flavor with lemony hops, tea; strong bitterness; a nit earthy and animal. Long final.
