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.

Beerdrinker79 (2116) - Idaho, USA - SEP 19, 2015
22 oz bottle- Pours hazy orange with a nice white head. Aroma is citrusy, dank and resinous, tropical fruits. The taste is citrus, lemon, pineapple, orange, pine, vegetal, dank and resinous. Body is a bit thin, carbonation is fine. If only the taste lived up to the aroma this would have been a winner, still good.

Bottle, Light and refreshing with grapefruit in the nose and in the taste. Solid malt profile gives this one a more substantial palate than many other session IPAs. Well done for sure and it goes down easy. Ill buy again.

vyvvy (6055) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Pours clear bright golden with an off-white head. The aroma has lots of bright tangerine, orange and other citrusy goodness hops, a bit of sweetness and mildly toasty bready malt. Really nice. It has a fairly light somewhat rough body with mild sharp carbonation. The taste starts with a lot of dryness, citrus zest, pine, mild woodiness and crackery malt. The finish continues and is super dry. Pretty nice session IPA.

Beerman6686 (6495) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2015
This poured a lighter orange with a white head. Aroma was decent bit of citra and light grain. Juicy Ness drops off a little in the flavor, a little herbal, but still fairly clean and drinkable.

Bright clear gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry, fine carbonation. Minerals. Light malts. Mild floralness. Mild orange peel, trace of fresh juice. Lightly bitter finish. Not the Citra delivery system I was hoping for.

Bottle, best before February 2016, drunk 9/6/15.
Large white head is frothy and diminishes steadily to cover, topping a clear golden body with plentiful carbonation.
Citra in the nose shows the usual citrus melange with a bit of floral notes, some perfume and light grassiness. Malts are well-attenuated adding honey and light vanilla. The vienna malt dosent really come through, perhaps adding just a hint of caramel. No alcohol and clean, with no stale hop issues.
Quite hoppy in the flavor but as with the top notch session IPAs, the bitterness is held mostly in check. Some acidity does build up (a touch of pine and strong grapefruit) on the end. Malts are sparse, dry but not overly grainy or overattenuated. Plentiful carbonation is a bit aggressive/peppery but the flavors are on point, leaving orange blossom honey, lemon zest and light pine on the finish, lingering.

Bottle. Hazy recollection of this. Bond sesh/sex night. Standard stuff. Cool smell, wheat hop, Citra all the way, floral brought on strong by the citrus. Getting a lot of weed too. It tastes watered down, more metallic, not as complex. Malty hop overtone.

Cybercat (5322) - Georgia, USA - SEP 11, 2015
Strong aroma is quite hoppy and evergreen. It pours clear golden with a fine-bubbled pale buff head. Flavor is hoppy and then some, evergreen and a little bitter, with citrus underpinnings and a malty hint. Mouthfeel features OK body but plenty of fizz. Hop to it!

Bottle share at GBBF, thanks to Paul I believe. Yellow, still, decent foamy white head. Aroma is grassy, flowers and leaves, passionfruit. Body is medium, soft carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is floral, pine, salty, resinous. Quite nice.

Best by 01/13/16. Sounds pretty fresh for me for a session IPA starting with an ABV of 4.5. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking hazy to semi-transparent transparent golden color with a slim fingers worth of white foaminess that quickly dissipated barely leaving any lacing. The smell started off with a sharp citrus somewhat bitter with an underlying sweet to bitter pine to blend. The taste was moderately bitter with an underscore of bitter piney-ness. Theres a lingering bitter piney aftertaste leading into a slight dry sweet citrus finish. Different, but nice. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly light allowing a nice harsh bitterness to pound my tongue. Overall, I say this was a pretty good session IPA that I would have again.
