COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This single hop pale ale showcases the Citra hop for a well balanced beer that is delicate in body with a mild bitterness in the finish. She roars with ferocious aromas of grapefruit, citrus, mango and evergreen. pseudoSue’s unique and addictive taste is clean and bright with just enough bite!

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.

Citra Citra Citra! Always what I'm in search of. Lacks the aroma and a little butter versus citrus than I'd expect - that's what stops the perfect score. If I could only find in Chicago. Can in Wisconsin. A/A+ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Terminus (3480) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 27, 2016
Can. As solid of a beer this is, it is NOT the best pale ale out there. At least the one month old cans didnt show this. maybe fresh tap would. Nose is floral lite pine, grapefruit, nothing really all that special but solid. Very bright floral flavors, lots of lemon, somewhat tart hop flavors. Mild bitterness, mostly lemon citric almost a cleaner-esque hop profile on the finish. Nice toasted malt base does show here, giving some nice sweetness. Solid but its not the best.

McWorta (1286) - LUXEMBOURG - APR 25, 2016
Deep golden light haze offering a medium light creamy white head with very good lacings. Aromas of mango, citrus with a soft touch of caramel and ripe papaya, flowery and dried lime peel. Soft carbonation, lean and smooth texture, bright and crisp body. Harmonic and balanced with a caramel toasty sweetness and a flowery light piney and tropical fruit hop bite. Medium lasting finish - quaffer!

Bottle. Cloudy golden pour with a white head. Aroma is grassy, fresh, bright, some citrus zest. Taste is the same; fresh and grassy with some citrus zest, slightly dry finish. Excellent pale ale.

Defreni (2913) - Husum, DENMARK - APR 23, 2016
Dåse. Orangefarvet klar øl med et fint skumhoved. Meget sødlig humlet duft. Meget dominerende og næsten for pungent for mig. Forskellen på 4 og 3,8. Smagen er også pungent med en dominerende humle. Overraskende meget bitterhed der gør den drikbar. Superfin øl.

Werckmeister (1831) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - APR 22, 2016
16oz can at home. Canned 01/15/2016. orange light hazy color, medium big white head. smells of resin, toffee, light herbal, light exotic fruits. overall good smell but not very impressive. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of resin, pines, nice exotic fruits, lightly citric, some grapefruit, pineapple, toffee, light currant notes, peppery, lemon grass, a bit stale hoppy towards the finish. finishes light to medium bitter with notes of resin and lemon grass. overall good stuff, but was expecting quite a bit more. rather heavy for a pale ale (more ipa-ish).

b3shine (7653) - Indiana, USA - APR 21, 2016
16 oz can to pint glass (from FL; canned MAR/09/16). Looks good; a very slightly hazy golden orange with foamy eggshell head. Smells of bitter and citrus hops with a moderately bittersweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a pleasantly bitter medium-bodied mouthfeel. A touch of caramel on the tongue as it warms as well. Good beer that I’d like to revisit super-fresh.

slowrunner77 (8982) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 20, 2016
Don’t see an abv on the can, but 7% begs the question - where’s the line between APA and IPA? This drinks like an IPA, though not very bitter. A smorgisboard of citrusy aroma and flavor - grapefruit, orange, pineapple - perhaps even hints of papaya and mango and evergreen. Really nice, crushable yet has a huge flavor.

Pinball (11785) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 19, 2016
can from kihoskh. clear golden, fluffy white head. delicate flowery very pleasant fresh hoppy aroma with bitter notes and a faint malty touch. aroma appear very dry, fresh and appetizing. not much oranges or exotic going on, i like those things not to be there. flavor is peppery, bitter hoppy with a touch of flowers and citrus and pine, a little bit of sweetness that i could do without, but at least the sweetnes is flowery and not corn or something like that. beer go a bit too close to malty bittersweet cloying , but stays just clear of that area. Very heavy taste for the abv. easy drinking, very good APA.
