Bright and clear, this one is pretty much a straight amber color. It grows an off-white head that settles to a finger's height without dropping too much further, staying tight and creamy as well as managing some good lacing, in plenty of thick patching.
A nice, bright citra hops nose is offered with a malt addition that serves to balance and allow the hops bill to maintain key status. As such, there's a firm bitterness that's juicy, mild notes of pine and earth allowing tropical fruits to take the forefront.
The bitterness is at a standard level for the style, and it serves well. It's a nice, juicy sort of flavor with a balance from malts that doesn't take away from the hops. Citrus zest, light floral notes, and lemongrass make for good depth and a satisfying complexity.
A medium body that works well and leans light and bright, it might have a little more depth to it overall. It's semi-dry as some leaf pulls some dryness into the middle. Crispness is moderate and steady, as is smoothness.

Plenty of obvious citra characteristics. Makes the color, smell, and taste perfect. There are a few citra-heavy beers out there and this is a great example of a regular-strength beer that isn't over-the-top.

There is definitely a strong, dry finish to this beer.
