Bottle pour. Pours clear yellow with white head. Aroma is citrus hops. Taste is citrus hops and mild malt sweetness. I believe this would have been much better fresh, a little past its prime when I tried it.

On tap at Hunahpu’s Day 2012. Insane drinkability and very smooth. A great balance from a single hop that made me want to come back for more. I would love to be able to turn this into my regular go to session... but alas...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 12oz bottle. Pours a nice straw color with loads of thick creamy head that clings to the glass. Aroma is mild citra hops and some floral aromatic. Taste is a bit of citra. Decent beer. Similar in some ways to Hoppy Birthday from ABC.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from latest Jaschais trade. This is the freshest version of this beer I've had. Aroma is stronger than the flavor of the aromatic and tropical citra hops, but only slightly. An amazingly light yet full-tasting pale ale with an amazingly clean palate. Great beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
An explosive citrusy, tropical hop bouquet envelops this brew’s light sugars for a linear, but highly engaging hop quencher.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the misty pale amber.
-The soft mouthfeel makes this brew feel light even though it’s 6%.
-Even the finish is dominantly citrusy. Some delicate resins appear here and there, but…
-The malt sugars taste lke simple icing at times. Malts don’t contribute much else in the way of flavor
-The hop profile is overtly citrusy that it might seriously displease those who don’t like fruity Pale Ales.
Bottle. Thx Eric !

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2013 On tap, I had 2 just to make sure the hype was real. It wasn’t. A great beer and I like citra hops but not overwhelmingly amazing. Still drinks like crack juice though.
In bottle it is better, I will up the rating.
And have had this multiple times recently. It just ins’t spectacular.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours light orange with lots of bubbles and thin white lacing. Average citrus hoppy aroma and a great taste, subtle hops with citrus and malty, honey undertones. If you like APA/IPAs, you will definitely enjoy this one.

Style et résumé: American Pale Ale houblonnée au Citra.
Comment: Bouteille de 330ml. Merci Patrick. L’étiquette est magnifique.
Description: Bière blonde dorée avec une mousse blanche. Le nez est agréable avec un heureux mélange d’agrumes et de conifère. La texture incroyable, elle est ronde. Les houblons sont gouteux. Le caramel est absent, encore une bière qui n’abuse pas des malts de spécialités. La finale offre une superbe amertume.
