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.

Tasting at Bruce’s new pad. Thanks to Ryan! Big thanks! hazy gold beer with a good pale cream coloured head. Nice nose of floral lime. Palate is softish and light with a light minerally carbonation. Light grass and a little pine resin. Very light skunk. Trace of hop spice. Smooth finish with a minty aftertaste. Would never have known this was Citra hopped but this is one of those Pale Ales that showcase the non-fruit side of US hops. Very nice too!

Bottle shared at Bruce’s in London - massive thanks to Ryan for bringing this over. Pours mostly clear gold with a frothy, white cap. Nose of delicate citrus, pale malts a bit of dank sweat. Light to medium sweet flavor with lots of dank, lightly dried citrus fruits, a bit of grapefruit. Light to medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Nice dryness to finish, moderate sweetness, great pale malt balance, light pine, orange, grapefruit. Outstanding. Absolutely world class.
