Notes/Commercial Description:
This single hop ale showcases the Citra hop. Named for the largest T-rex fossil ever discovered, she roars with ferocious aromas of grapefruit, citrus, mango and evergreen. Delicate in body with a mild bite in the finish.

Tap into a pint glass.

A-Slightly cloudy, copper/amber color, very little head with small bubbles that linger, no lacing. A bit on the "standard" side, but perhaps it had to do with the keg/tap I got in on versus the beer itself. I would hope for a bit more of a head on this style.

S-Wow. Got an excellent whiff of the hop profile even when the beer was being poured 5 feet away from me, made me very thirsty. Pineapple, fresh green grass, bright citrus notes, very tropical.

T-Those topical notes in the nose really shine here, it has a grassy/citrus fruit/lemon taste with a distinct green pepper hoppy pop at the end. Lots of flavor without being a palate wrecker, which the relatively low ABV compliments. Bit of resiny orange candy-like leftovers linger, which is nice.

M-Medium body, slight carbonation tingle/burning, finishes slightly dry.

O-A bit off on the appearance, but overall exemplary for the style.

Serving type: on-tap
