Growler pour at DLD from Kan. Thanks! Okay, I have to admit I wasn’t fair to this one. I was drinking fresh Zombie Dust side by side with this. There was a breadiness about the aromatics and some softer hop character, almost tending towards German hops with light citrus components. Lacking the bright tropical fruit notes typical of Citra. On taste, a pleasing and balanced bitterness and a refreshing hop character. Malt body is really nice, perhaps overwhelms the hop flavor somewhat. A good beer, just wasn’t fair to have it side by side with Zombie Dust, that’s all.

Pizza port ball and chain. growler thanks to my man tim..... Pours a medium copper penny transaprent orangey brownpour
with a thin to medium just off-white head... Aroma of crisp citrusy
and dankness all for the very hop forwardness for a an american
pale..... Flavors are much of the same with an emphasis on west coast
tropical fruitiness, not as much as th aroma suggests, but nice
nonetheless. Small bready malt backbone to coincide with the aforementione. Small to medium bodied with adequate carbonation.
Tasteful and light between all the heavy hitters.

Tried as a sampler at the Monk. This one was the fourth on the tray and it was good and would have been better earlier in the tasting. Citra stands out and enjoying this more and more.

Very light and crisp. Citrus in the flavor and aroma. A bit of malt sweetness but mostly the lemony feel. Quite clean and refreshing. This would be great at a wedding, light, crisp and clean.

Served on tap at Port OB. The appearance is an ever so slightly hazy gold with a small white head. The nose and aromas are really nice. A nice load of lemon peel, other citrus, a nice mild hop bite with a solid malty backing. A nice refreshing pale ale for the summer months.
I clicked through a little fast and this should be a Pale Ale, I already sent in for a correction.

Big hop nose, loads of citrus and lime zest. Not a fan of Citra hops, but this is the most well done I have tried. Super drinkable, tons of hop flavor, not too bitter or harsh, truly a great sessionable beer.
