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.

9/20/2013: Green Flash Citra Session IPA... This beer is exactly everything I hate - Citra hops! This beer has a soft toffee malt base and does what it should which is showcase the hops. However, I just dont like Citra hops AT ALL. I love hops with pine and resin characteristics and those with citrus and tropical fruit flavors, but I just dont care for those flavors together along with a distinct MELON flavor as well. Everything together comes across as muddled to me and on top of that, Citra hops just seem to impart a soft and fuzzy kind of bitterness. Its hard to explain. I know that Im probably the only one who doesnt like Citra hops, but thats okay. Although this is a well-made, well-balalnced IPA, I just cant get my tastebuds to accept this particular hop. I was hoping that a beer from Green Flash could do it, but instead this one just confirmed my dislike. Draught sample(s) at Party Town in Florence, KY. Rating #118 for this beer.

Tap at cock and bull, sarasota. Dark golden color, white head. Aroma has malts and lots of hops, citrus notes. Light malty body, some soapy notes, dry hoppy end. Little bit weird some how.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Bottle:   Golden, moderate foamy white head, soft carbonation, nice lacing.   Soft Citra hop nose.   A little leafy, some very minor citrus peel.   Very soft.   Clean, moderate body and mouthfeel.   Pretty crisp, clean, soft flavors.   Session IPA is right.   A nice example of one, flavorful without being too bitter.

Draft locally from notes. Pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have some nice citrus and tropical fruits character, pale malts, grass, light herbal notes, mild to moderate bitterness, decent for a session ipa.

jdjuice (500) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - JAN 29, 2016
Pours pale gold with white head, nice lacing. Aroma is fruity, citrus, mangos, tropical fruits. Flavors are much of the same, very fruity, with a pretty solid bitterness that lingers nicely and makes it a very good thirst quencher. A little more body than I was expecting at this ABV. Quite good.

UXO (1822) - CANADA - JAN 24, 2016
Appearance: hazy pale gold with one finger of ivory head, good retention and patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: citrus rind, tropical fruit, resin, bready malt, lightly dank and/or catty. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry finish. (4/5) Bearing in mind that this is intended to be a low ABV sessionable ale, its pretty good. That said, its a bit thin in the mouth and the flavours just dont seem to pop, though it doesnt seem to have been deeply harmed by being a bit past its best-by. And, as Ive usually found to be the case with single-hop ales, the flavours seem to lack dimension. On the up side, the Citra doesnt come through as offensively catty the way it sometimes can, though there is a not-unpleasant suggestion of that in there, particularly as it warms. (14/20)
