9/IV/16 - 1Pt. 6Fl. Oz. bottle (>11) from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: n/a, bottled: XI/24/15 (2016-325)

Clear orange beer, big creamy irregular off-white head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving some lacing in the glass. Aroma: lots of citrus, grapefruit, some sweet malts, caramel, lots of tropical fruits, bit cheesy. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: very fruity start, bit lemony, citrus, some melons, pretty bitter, bit resinous, sweet malty touch. Aftertaste: bit sweet, malty, caramel, soft bitterness, fruity. Probably way better when fresh.

Passion fruit, citrus hop aroma with notes of bread. Appearance is a hazy gold with a white head with good retention. Flavor has a passion fruit flavor with notes of cracker and biscuit with some notes of caramel. Body is medium light with a medium level of carbonation. Overall, Im not sure I would call it a pale ale, but its a good beer. I would prefer a little more body though ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at tderoeck's place, thanks! Pretty bitter for a Citra pale ale. Full mouthfeel, nice but not fantastic.
