Good citra aroma. I?m getting something metallic or a little off. Band aid? Maybe I got a bad batch, or maybe it?s the combination with the citra. I can see this being a good session ale and will have to give it another try later. Canned 09/01/14 13:12, consumed 10/20/14. Edit: it got a lot better as it warmed up. I think I just don?t like cold citra.

16 oz into a tulip. Clear amber with a finger of white soapy foam. Nose is caramel malt, grapefruit, and peach. Taste is very malt forward with some peach and caramel. Lightly bitter with lingering pine. A solid IPA, doesn’t really feel like a session beer though.

Out of the can. Pours a nice orange. Smell is all citra hops. Tastes great for a session. As expected. Pretty good.
