This thang, yeah... how about that? Kind of like when this one hottie said that Raul looked like Emile Hersche - yeah, I'll take it. I may not really be close in looks to said "heartthrob," but, ya know... Citra Rye by Joseph James on the other hand reminds Raul of Pliny. More like Pliny-lite, but it's good territory to be in.

Bitter, a bit crisp, clean like a Sunday wash...

Raul approved.

Cool beer. Light and dry with the rye spice kicking up in the finish. The Citra shines early with a floral nose and melon and berries rolling into the citrus of the flavor. Very drinkable. I'd have another.

Joseph James knocked this one out of the ballpark.

Orange-gold in apperance, Citrus scent of tangerine and hops.

Taste consists of more citrus, some malt sweetness, and a nice, slightly more than subtle, hop presence; blends perfectly with this easy drinking, low abv, rye pale ale.

A new go-to from Joseph James.
