Poured into a lager glass.

A - Orange gold. Rocky 3 inch head stays several minutes, recedes to a frothy film. Nice lacing.

S - Citrus and musty hops.

T - Oh my! Grapefruit, orange, pineapple hop blast. Solid but not overbearing malt presence. Ends on a dry, hoppy, mellow peach note.

M - Medium, juicy

O - A truly great American Pale Ale. If you can find this, hoard this.

T. Bright tropical grassy a light dankness light cracker malt. Just splendid.
M. Clean crisp might and refreshing.
O. Really great apa the citra comes througr perfectly. Probably the best use of that hop of most citra beers try

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.

A - Copper color, slight haziness, a small, compact white head, and mild lacing.

S - Fat pine and citrus, with a subtle grass and floral notes, and wild hop elements.

T - Lands with more big citrus pith and grass. Middle comes in with more grapefruit and fleshy pitted fruits, closing with a subtle bitter bite that fades out. Malt is present only to keep things from going hard into the bitter territory.

M - Solid carbonation and clean, brisk feel, and almost no build.

O - A highly drinkable homage to one of the elemental hop varietals. An excellent summer brew, and a nice choice whenever you want something to tip back.
