COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This single hop ale showcases the Citra hop. Named for the largest T-rex fossil ever discovered, she roars with ferocious aromas of grapefruit, citrus, mango and evergreen. Delicate in body with a mild bite in the finish.

Admin Note: Previously brewed as a 5.8% ABV offering, current and future batches are listed at 7% ABV per a tweak and translating the beer to a larger 30 bbl system. Tweaks may continue to change this ABV slightly as they settle on an official end product.

A nice hazy orange body to this citra hopped pale ale. Nice lacing, and aroma. Had on tap. Not much head, or retention. Definitely worth having again.

Bottle. Orange pour with tan head. Herbal and grassy aromas. Herbal and floral hop flavors, dank but with a bit of malt presence. Will have to try again.

Sample at Great Taste of the Midwest on 08/09/2014: Clear golden color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily. Strings of lacing. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of pungent citrus, piney hops and biscuit malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering grapefruit and hops aftertaste. Solid APA overall.

Dr_Fellini (416) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours a clear golden color with an offwhite head. Aroma is faint fleshy fruit, floral hops, with a touch of caramel sweetness. Flavor is a good mild bitter with a some fleshy fruit hop sweetness. Light to medium in body, and maybe a little heavier than what Iíd expect for an APA. Tasty, but not sure #2 is appropriate. This is good, but Zombiedust is phenomenal.

On tap at brewery. Pours a hazy dark golden color with a white head. Aroma has big dank and citrusy hops and some caramel. Taste is very hoppy with dank and citrusy flavors, as well as a pleasant wild onion taste. Some cracker malt and moderate pine/floral bitterness. Finishes semi dry. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very good, unique taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rondphoto (2024) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 11, 2014
bottle @ Johnís Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Clear light amber with a foamy white head, streaks of lace. Taste is malt with a bit of orange, maybe light spice, that is upended by a wave of pine hops. The hops arenít particularly strong, but they are bitter, and cover the rest. The finish is the deal breaker - all comes to an early abrupt end with the memory of pine lingering for a only a short while.

WL bomber recíd from 2014 summer SS - MUCH thanks. I have now had 3 of top ten pale ales - liked Maine Beer MO and 3F alpha king more than this one - but definitely not my style - I see what others find and perhaps this is too subtle of a beer for me - not much aroma - maybe some citrus or mango in flavor - it is NOT hoppy, so that is a positive; but just not that much happening here - a little hops and tart dryness at end. give me a bock please
