3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
At first this beer threatens to be too light with a thin head and modest aroma. Even the color and body indicate a beer that may fade but it doesnít. It delivers a good hop taste with every sip throughout. The aftertaste can slide a bit skunky but then resolves into a light hop finish. I wonít be disappointed to see this on tap when I go somewhere, especially if there are no top notch IPAs there.

Cloudy amber with a thin head. Lots of floral and fruit in the aroma. The taste has a nice malt sweetness to start with the fruity hops kicking in. The citra has so many flavors, even a single hop has complexity. Dry and refreshing, well done.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear golden color with a good head that fades quickly. The aroma is surprisingly weak, but pleasant with fresh green hops with grapefruit and orange notes. The taste is pleasant: a prominent but not dominant hop bitterness that is well balanced with the malt backbone. There are nice grapefruit notes (and orange, once it warms), but they arenít as aggressive as I would have hoped given the name. Overall, a very solid summertime beer that Iíll get again, but there is nothing particularly unique about it. Itís a bit more pleasant than my ratings indicate, but I expected more from the promise of citra hops indicated in the title and dinged it a bit for that.
