Excellent beer. Up there with Two hearted (different style. Calm down, snobs). Bottled conditioned is a huge plus. Would I purchase this again? That's a no-brainer. My go to for drinking in GH state park (lol). Great job, Oddside.

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.

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.
