On tap at Bigby’s Pour House in Addison, IL. and shaker served showing a slightly hazed, orangey gold color, with a frothy layer of soft white head foam, and sheet-like lacing on the glass. The nose was expressive fruitiness of tangerine, grapefruit, a bit of tropical scent, with a hint of resin. A little less than medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste added a moderate citrus & rind bitterness. The texture thinned a bit and was slightly watery on the palate, but otherwise, an altogether even keeled Pale, with pleasant drinkability.

Aroma is pine, citrus, light tropical fruit and a hint of perfumed sweetness. The flavor is tropical fruit, hops/hop resin, citrus, malts and a very bitter finish.

À very nice citra pale ale. Light grapefruit aroma, golden and translucent, thin white head. Nice bitter bite. Tried at Plum Market at DTW on my way to A’dam in 2016.

12 oz can. It poured hazy golden to amber in color with a frothy white head. Bold grapefruit-hop aroma with a hint of pine. Well hopped bitter flavor with an enjoyably bitter finish. Overall a good beer.

Can. Pours a Clear Amber. Lacks on smell. The palate is nice a nod light. A medium heaviness. The taste is a medium citra taste. Orange and has a piney dry aftertaste. Pretty good pale ale

Thechasm442 (1005) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Can pour. Hazy glowing orange with a pillowy thick white head and nice lacing. Aroma is all citra. Bright citrus and pine with caramel in the back. Flavor is grapefruit, orange, pine, and caramel. Juicy and quenching. Not super complex, but super crushable.

Blah. I love citra hops and this was a big disappointment. The aroma was there and the palate and taste were not. Poorly crafted. On tap in Holland, MI. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This one really smacks you in the nose w/ the hops when you open it. I like it. It is slightly hazed w/ a creamy head. The2015 hop harvest wasn’t my favorite for Citra but it works well here, lots of lemon and floral notes along w/ some pine. This is fairly full bodied but reasonably dry w/ gentle carbonation lending a thick creaminess to it. It finishes fairly mild w/ just a little hint of bitterness. This is a nice and drinkable APA. I could see myself drinking it fairly regularly.

jmohno (1610) - Iowa, USA - APR 24, 2016
Lightly hazed gold, thick fluffy head, lots of lace. Nice citrusy aroma, all of the above, medium/light aroma. Mild malt, caramel malt. Taste is sweet and citrusy, nice malt body, nice resiny finish. Light sweet caramel malts, lemon,light fruit, citrus, light pine. Nice refreshing summery pale ale, but its not real light or light in body. Really nice pale ale.
