Had a liter at Sidetrack in Ypsilanti.

Poured nice and golden, smelling of grapefruit. Had a nice kick of hops, but not overwhelming. A very good brew.

Prior to this brew, I had never heard of Odd Sides....but I will keep an eye out for more of their brews.

Serving type: on-tap

Thanks to NJB145 for this extra in a recent trade. Going light tonight after too much bourbon county last night...actually, not too much, just not enough food. I thought the mushroom burger was a burger with mushroom, not an actual mushroom burger, good, but not enough substance...but I digress. 12 oz. bottle, my first taste of Odd Side.

Pour is light orange with rollicking carbonation. First up the nose is pale malts, back up by pungent orange, sharp peach. Nothing demure about this pale up front.

CPA: Citra Pale Ale is like Seether's Careless Whisper: underneath, it's still a gussied-up pop song. Plenty of pale malt that's been upgraded with the much-advertised citra: those bitter oranges again, mixed with grapefruit guts, an almost wine-like sharpness, with an ending of karate-chop bitterness. Nicely oily. One & done, but I won't complain while I'm drinking it.

Bit heavy on the bitterness without enough flavor to set it off: like an Al Sharpton loop. Not far from being something special, this one is just pretty good for me as is.
