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.

Wow. What a great beer! As one who’s had his share of IPAs, I find it hard to be bowled over by yet one more IPA--but this is not just one more IPA! The first thing that hits you is that glorious nose of grapefruit and herbs, and the flavor and the mouthful live up to the promise in that first impression. Proof that an IPA doesn’t have to be over the top in ABV or IBU to be truly satisfying. I wish I lived in Iowa where I could have access to this regularly.

ctipping (1160) - Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2016
650 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 10/11/2013. Hazy bright orange. Nice white head. Great lacing after the head settles. Strong mango and melon aroma. Orange and tropical fruit. All hops. Taste is more mango. Sweet citrus hop. Sweet pale malt. Slight grain. Just a ton of delicious citra hop goodness. Thick for a pale ale, but I like it. Creamy. Medium low carbonation. This is ridiculously good. Very few breweries make a pale ale anywhere near as good as this.

RBSG 2016, hotel lobby share. Can. Slightly hazy gold. Massive resinous, hoppy body, so much foresty pine. Slightly medicinal bitter finish. Outstanding.

daje (3782) - NORWAY - JUL 16, 2016
Can at Mikkeller Bar, march 24th 2016. Hazy golden body with a lasting white head. Aroma is a citrus and grapefruit bomb with hay, mild grass and pine. Taste is super fresh and crisp, the citra really shows it’s best side here, peach and grapefruit for the most with a tropical medium bitter finish. The aftertaste is so juicy you’re almost afraid of taking another sip to destroy what’s going on in the mouth. Nice!

pours golden color, clear, almost brilliant, with lasting white foamy head. Aroma: intense hop aroma, which takes on pine, citruses, like lime, grapefruit....flavor: rich hop flavors, with notes of citruses, pine, supported with malt flavor, which steps forward in second half, and takes on toffee. Finish is slightly bitter. Body is medium, texture soft. carbonation is medium. Body, palate nad abv. like ipa?

Thanks Joe! Bottle (a tad old), but still nice pale that had plenty of citra pop with some mango and orange flavors, mildly bitter and nice crisp finish. Great APA

Trolleo (1243) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 9, 2016
Bit hazy golden color, medium sized white head. Aroma of pine, lots of hops, some mango. Reminds me of Brewdog’s Jack Hammer. Taste is also great, pine with decent amount of bitterness. Thin body, average carbonation. Very very tasty. One of the best APAs I had so far. //0,4 can from Svijet Piva

malvrich (221) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 8, 2016
17 day old can mail ordered from France44.com into a stange. A: Giant merengue head atop a clear gold body with slow bubbles. Long head retention and thick lace S: Sharp sweet grapefruit scent with toffee/honeysuckle faintly in the background. T: Bitter and piney becoming fruity with tropical and citrus notes. Pith and zest. A slightly astringent "green" note assumed from alcohol. M: Light medium body with nice carb tingle. Slight resin finish. O: Good pale ale but worth nowhere near the hassle required to get it. I will enjoy my remaining 3 cans but likely will not ever buy again.

Suttree (6013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 5, 2016
From a tall boy can. I did not expect to come across this in Southwest Florida. Orange, with a thin but very dense white head. Smells like toffee, with tropical citrus and some grassy notes. Pleasantly heavy palate. It’s nicely hop-forward, with citrus and grassy flavors. There’s a nicely undercurrent of toffee and caramel, as well. Good stuff.
