Bottle. A deep gold colored brew with a thin white head. Grapefruit dominates the first sniff. There is also hay and an herbal nuttiness. The taste is bread crust mixed with grapefruit. There is a lightly medicinal aspirin finish, but it’s not bad in this beer. Decent. I am still not sure why people are crazy for Citra hops.
12 oz bottle from backlog notes. Pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have lemony citrus, bready malts, not much else going on, I won’t revisit. KansaiBeerLvrs (5305) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 9, 2015
Take out bottle from Tap 6 in Busan served in a snifter. It has a sharp prickly Citra hoppy nose. It is light bodied with a zesty spritzy carbonation. The taste is crisp, sweet peaches & citrus. Lovely hoppy blonde with a great balance. mjg74 (3156) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 6, 2015
Bottle from Grocery Outlet. Light to medium golden in color. Lightly hopped nose with some lemon zest qualities to it. Light grains and hops up front. A little on the watery side. Mild hop finish and some more grains. Pretty average brew. rjplumer (1152) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Soft citrus aroma. Gentle golden colored body with a soap bubbled head that fades quick. Mild bitterness complimented by a subdued creamy malt character with citrus notes in the background. Has a tart finish that is refreshing and light. zvikar (6349) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - DEC 29, 2014

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Tom L. Hazy yellow. Nice aroma of fruity hops, slightly stale but still decent. Dry-ish flavor with faint sweetness, fruity hops and mild bitterness. Light to medium-bodied. Refreshing. mnurda (1289) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 26, 2014

Slightly hazy gold with a fluffy head. Aroma of tropical fruit salad, lots of guava and papaya, sweet and fruity. Taste light and well balanced, lemony, and crisp. Slight over-carbonation prevents the palate from being truly smooth, but overall a great summer beer. slowrunner77 (12591) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 25, 2014
"Great for what it is - a tasty hopped up 4% session brew. Soft citrus peel and tropical fruit in the aroma and flavor. Sure goes down easy. Reminiscent of new belgiums hoptober. Good stuff." Darkmagus82 (2302) - - SEP 18, 2014

Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The brew pours a nice crystal clear golden amber color with a billowy 1.5 finger white head. The head fades over a moderate amount of time to leave a decent level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is grainy and bready with hints of a grassy hop smell. Along with these aromas are some light citrus and floral notes.
Taste – The taste begins with a smoother malt and biscuit taste. As the taste advances it gains more and more graininess with some flavors of a light lemon and grassy hop coming to the tongue. By the end the grassiness gets quite a bit stronger and is joined by a bit of a haylike flavor to leave a crisp bready flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is quite thin and crisp with a carbonation level that is rather average. Both are quite appropriate for the more grainy and grassy flavors of the brew and make it quite refreshing.
Overall – It is a rather refreshing brew overall but nothing all that out of the ordinary. A good go to for a more session style on a nice warm day.
