look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Pours a light, golden orange color with almost no head retention. Leaves a thin ring of lacing. Smell is expected knowing this is exclusively citra. Notes of pineapple, dank tropical fruit, grapefruit, mango, light pine as well as some light grain and carmel. Smell is not very pungent like other citra beers, but still get light notes of all of these. Taste starts with grapefruit, various tropical fruits like papaya. The middle brings a light sweetness, as well as notes of grain. The finish continues the sweet grain notes, as well as more citra hop qualities: more grapefruit, papaya, and lemon. This grain quality is a little too strong and really interferes with the hop qualities that should be a little more pungent in flavor. Almost get a banana like taste in the finish, as well as a metallic flavor. Light body with a creamy and slick mouthfeel. This could be an older bottle, but I am not that impressed with this. The malt bill was a little too much and the citra hop qualities were a little toned down.

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.
