Location: 22 oz bottle from Oak Tree, 11/29/12, 2012 Citra Hops
Suttree (6392) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Aroma: The nose has some pine hops, a little grapefruit, and some malty notes as well
Appearance: It pours a mostly clear dark orange color with a bubbly off-white head and sticky lace
Flavor: This one has a light/citrusy sweetness, with a nice, clean medium bitterness
Palate: The body is fairly light, with a nice mouthfeel, average carbonation, and a dry finish
This one works pretty well. The flavor does a nice job of highlighting the fresh hops. It is quite drinkable, even dangerously so, you can barely tell there’s any alcohol in here. Very solid. Of this series, the only other one I have tried was the Amarillo, and this one was better.
So, I’ve actually drank this several times without realizing it was a separate rate. Can you imagine? Drinking a rateable beer with out rating it? Who would do such a crazy, irresponsible thing? Anyway, It’s good. Light malts and a fresh, citrusy hop bite. Seems lower than 6.6% abv, actually. Dangerously drinkable... nathan30533 (1020) - Clifton, Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Great brew. Good golden color with nice forming head. little lacing. Good overall sweet aroma and hop taste. dsw4b (5) - Clemson, South Carolina, USA - NOV 28, 2012 does not count
Lemongrass, apricot, and raw earthiness. Some pineapple maybe? Pours a deep amber with quickly fading head. The Citra hops are a fun change of pace from the ’C’ family.

Bottle. Orange caramel malt and spicy orange peel aroma. Hazy amber with minimal head. Sweet orange/mango malt and lightly bitter citrus peel flavor. Nice. queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Suttree. Floral earthy hops, apricot, light piney aroma. Amber with a moderate ivory head. Fruity floral hops flavor backed up nicely by lightly sweet malt. Medium body and carbonation. Hops are smooth and fresh tasting, and the malt isn’t too sweet or cloying. I’m really diggin’ these fresh hoppy brews that manage to be bitter without being bitter. I don’t know how else to explain it. drfabulous (7953) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - NOV 27, 2012
22 ounce thanks to James. Hoppy in aroma and a bit in taste, but body overall doesn’t maintain the harvest fresh hop as much as I’d like. Still, tasty. stevencon (522) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2012
2012 bottle almost red amber pour. dank hop aroma. Lots of grass and pine. Resiny. Good carb. Very drinkable. Maybe a bit light for an IPA. sloshgator (741) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2012
So Fresh & So Green is one tasty IPA with the Citra hops prominent in the aroma, taste and aftertaste. It is surprisingly not bitter for an IPA with the Citra hops imparting a flavor of fresh cut grass mixed with citrus. The right amount of carbonation makes the hop flavors last filling every cranny of your nasal passages. Get So Fresh & So Green while you can - 2012 is almost over.
