COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Citra hops lend their name to this interpretation of a Golden Ale. But that’s not all they bring to the party. Their striking citrus aroma and thirst-quenching flavor are the perfect pairing for soft malt notes. Together they create a beer that’s full in flavor and uniquely refreshing.

RABinVA (1009) - Fredericksburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours light gold, small white head, light lacing. Aroma is grass, some lightly citrus, and a whole lot of fresh, ammonia-filled cat pee. Taste is light and chuggable. After the Green Flash 100% citra pale this is nothing.

ElGaucho (2161) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle. Nice hop profile. Slight haze. Light in color. Light bodied with some breadiness. Part of a 4-beer 12 pack all of which I was impressed with. Session able qualities.

Rated in 2010 (Backlog) - Gold in color with a decent off-white head. Aroma is of grapefruit, lemons and oranges. Taste is of grapefuit and grass, but is slightly watered down.

Stevesie (294) - - JUL 15, 2013
From bottle. Light gold, slightly murky pour with some moderate white head. Nice hoppy nose. Crisp, with some hops up front, light body. Watery finish. Okay for summer, but a little weak.

Bottle. Nose has a fair amount of hoppiness coming off it, but it smells like the hops have turned, as I get a lot of feet smell to it. Taste is actually pretty light, and I can get just a hint of citrus in there. Nice easy drink and a great summer brew, but the smell isn’t very good.

beertholomeus (543) - California, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Pours yellow with white head. Citrus, malt and hop aromas. Citrus, malt and some hop flavors. Light body and a citrus finish.

J_man (666) - Tustin, California, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Aromas of lemons, hay and grass coming off a pale yellow, slightly hazy body with a thin white head. There’s a bit of a hop bite in the taste, a very light biscuit malt flavor and a light citrusy tang, but not much else. Very light bodied and flavored. Leaves a bit of the hops in the aftertaste. Very easy (maybe too easy) drinking summer ale.

cwsample (160) - Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2013
On tap at Ginger Man. Very clear, golden with thin white head. Smells a little sweet, almost honey. Tastes odd...almost like body odor? Interesting.

AndyW68 (811) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Clear yellow pour with white head. Aroma is light bread and leaves. Taste is light sweet. Light body. Crisp, light and refreshing.

trujahwarrior (478) - Monroe, Washington, USA - JUL 6, 2013
12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear pale golden color with a medium size white head that leaves light lacing. Smell of pale malt, honey and citrus. Tastes of all the same things I the smell but the citrus shines through. Mouthfeel is thin and watery but chewy with decent carbonation. Overall this is a nice summer ale after a long day of work. Crisp and refreshing.
