bhensonb (10808) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Thanks to mixmasterob for this bomber! Pours hazy copper with a creamy/frothy off-white head. Aroma is very citrus. Not quite cat piss, but suggestive. Med body. Carb is almost chewy. Flavor is a nice malt backbone with a lot of citrus, and that moves into rind. Finish is dry, bitter and citrus rind. Not quite grapefruit - but close. Very fresh and tasty.

Dogbrick (7669) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Bottle at The Distillery in Savannah. The beer is a clear orange-gold color with a thick and foamy white head that recedes slowly. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, malt and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, caramel malt and a little spruce. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering citrus hops aftertaste. Pretty good Citra showcase beer overall.

Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Bomber. Poured clear, medium golden with a short off-white head. The aroma picked up juicy orange, pineapple, and other fruity hops over sweet malts.. the hops starred. The flavor found sweet biscuity malts surrounded by fresh, dank mixed fruit and pineapple bitterness.. more herbal and a touch medicinal on the finish.. not quite as cohesive as the nose indicated. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. hops were very fresh.. OK feel and flow.
