What could motivate us to replace the signature mix of hops in our classic pale ale, Venom, with a single variety? This amazing variant, hopped solely with American Citra hops for an array of vibrant citrus flavors, a big, fresh, fruity aroma and Venoms crisp, refreshing, lingering finish. Pop the top and experience...a whole new bite.

drfabulous (7540) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JAN 12, 2013
22 ounce thanks to Michelle. Mild orange body with some floral hop profile but not what I normally expect from citra hops. Overall slight malt and bit muted hops. Ok. Drinkable, for sure.

DocLock (10478) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Draft at brewpub. Poured deep golden with white head. Nose was that great Citra nose with pale malt, peppery spice in the nose and flavor, and a crisp, fresh finish. Bottling seems to have hampered this one, as the draft version I had was excellent.

Braudog (6582) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours as youd expect a beer with "citra" to pour .. orange-amber, sticky but thin head, stark citric aroma. Easy drinking, crisp, tight, and rollicking with citrus, wood, fresh-cut grass. A bit overly earthy, but a good time drink nonetheless. (#4850, 12/8/2012)

ben4321 (6151) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from State Line, 11/6/12

Aroma: The nose is citrus/grapefruit, some caramel, bread, and sweet malts
Appearance: It pours a dark orange-reddish color with a small head and some spotty lace
Flavor: The taste is a little more malty, then the nose, theres bitterness, but not much citrus hop flavor
Palate: The body is medium, it drinks with a little creaminess, an average carbonation, and dry finish
Overall Impression: This one is solid, but not too much more. Trying to remember back to the Green Flash version I had on tap, I feel like this one has a slightly better nose, but otherwise, I liked them both about the same amount, but this one might be just slightly better.

Amber with a whit e head. Citrus in the aroma and also bread and roast malt. The citra shows in the flavor but the sweetness of the malt provides a nice balance.

Nice fruity hoppy aroma initially from the bomber. In the glass: a nice lingering head over a hazy not so pale pour. Citrusy and fruity hoppiness, a little thin but not bad by any means.
