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.

Simply the best. Very clean and crisp. Malts really let those citrus flavored citra hop shine. I have yet to have a better APA. And I have been trying pretty hard.

Bomber from trade. Huge thanks! Pours clear golden with a hint of orange and a beautiful creamy fluffy white head. Aroma of big Citra hops, pineapple mango grapefruit, grass and piney notes, sweet honey. Oh yes. The flavor. Oh my god. Lightly sweet maltiness with massive pineapple mango hop presence, very light bitter. Some super raw hop vegetal notes. Juicy and resinous, easy going, medium plus carbonation , lightly dry finish. Oh my lord. I got goosebumps when this first hit my lips. Expected this to be very good but maybe not quite live up to the hype. I was wrong--this is essentially perfect. I don't know where to knock any points off at all.

Aggressive, balls-out hoppiness is a trait I admire in many Pale Ales and IPA’s alike, but sometimes, it takes a superbly balanced not-too-boozy and not-too-bitter ale to knock your brain clean out of your skull. No beer has really done that for me like pseudoSue did. The malt foundation is laid out remarkably. It absorbs all but a little of the Citra hops’ bitterness and lets mango, grapefruit, orange, papaya, and orange cream shine through. Some touches of grass, pine, cannabis, and evergreen as well. It’s inconceivable that beer with so little alcohol and IBU’s can have as much complexity and deliciousness. Yet, here it is.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2016 From Labirratorium. In Teky glass. Watching Vinkings 4x10. Amazing in all aspects, but specially on texture, oily, with each sip filling your mouth completely, and very balanced. One of those brews that causes you great sorrow when then glass have finally em! ptied

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2014 Poured from a bomber given to us at DLD. Quite unexpected. Dark orange with a white head Aroma is sweet hoppy. Flavor is grapefruit perfection with pineapple. Seems to even have a ever so slight cucumber hiding there in the finish. WOW-o-WOW Balanced well to the palate. Well done!!

Appearance: Deep gold, with a fluffy off white head that quickly dissipates. Slight haze. Aroma: Tons of citrus, subtle evergreen notes. Body: Lighter bodied then some other pale ale’s I have had before, but still medium overall. Carbonation: Medium plus carbonation Flavor: Beer is very well balanced, but is defiantly hop forward as it should be per the style. Much like the aroma, but with a little more evergreen present and not as much citrus. Some nice pale malt characteristics in the middle. Finish: Some lingering citrus and grapefruit in the aftertaste. No dryness. Some bitterness but nothing crazy. Overall: This beer is an upper echelon American Pale Ale, that features the Citra hop phenomenally! Must try!

Pours a light orange with nice tight foam. The citra hops really come through in the aroma, lots of grapefruit and tangerine. Again the citra comes through strong in the taste, but leaves room to play with the light malt notes. The finish leaves you with more citrus but is very clean. This is a very session able beer.

TheAlum strikes again! Pours a lightly hazed golden color, nice white head. Citrus, hops, juicy as fuck, vibrant resinous piney notes. Just fucking incredible.
