4.26/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Thanks much to Stakem for sharing this with tenderbranson and me, enjoyed chilled in a goblet.

The color is light with golden hues and light haziness with white head and average bead/lace. The smell is extremely aromatic with hop forwad smell like few I have had the pleasure to inhale -lots of citrus, pineapple and dank hop esters which bring to mind pith of grapefruit and herbs. The feel has moderately high bitterness with subtle astringent tangy qualities and medium carbonation with mild sweetness to support the hop acidity.

The taste is great - tons of floral, herbal and dank flavors from the hops which are mildly grassy in a good way with somewhat tropical and grapefruit-like in the juicy taste as if one were cut at the peak of ripeness. Overall this is a hard to compare pale ale that demonstrates the aromatic qualities of Citra very well and is extremely drinkable almost IPA bitterness thanks again, Adam!
