COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Citra Session IPA is brewed with high-quality Marris Otter and Vienna malt but the flavor is dominated by the Citra hops introduced throughout the boil and again in the dry hop for maximum aroma intensity. Notes of lemon, orange and grapefruit make this hop-laden brew a perfectly potable summer session IPA.

How: Bottle (12 oz) at home. Courtesy of Minderbinder, thanks!

>>> A nicely hoppy citra forward beer that is drinkable, but not as sessionable as the name or the abv suggest.

- Clear golden-orange with a medium off-white head, good retention and little lacing.
- Aroma is nicely hoppy and theres no doubt that Citra hops were used here.
- Theres an interesting grassy presence throughout aroma and taste that persist a while in the aftertaste as well.
- Bitterness is moderate and bring a resinous presence.
- Body is medium, carbonation is moderate and finish is rather dry.
- Easy drinking, but not exactly "sessionnable" and certainly feels a bit heavier than 4.5% abv.

Flavors: Citrus, tropical fruits, grass, resin, mild malt spiciness, light caramel.

Bottle thanks to Cory. Clear bright gold pour with thin creamy white head, come lacing. Aroma is really good, lots of potent citra notes, wet juicy hop aromas, grassy with just a touch of honey. Taste is juicy, nice tropical lemonade notes, with a potent bitter grassy finish, just a touch of honey to smooth things out. Palate is light bodied, dry, just a touch watery with good carbonation. Super easy drinking, delicious.

2015 bottle. A mostly clear golden color with finger of white head. Smells of dank weed, citrus, tropical, onion, grass. Taste is a dank citrus hop, smidgen of cracker like malt in the finish. Citra done well, easy and sessionable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma of pungent citrus and floral hops. Taste is mildly sweet with a pronounced hop bitterness up front that yields to more of a floral lingering bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
