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.

22oz bottle poured into a pint

A: Pours a pale straw color, with a sticky half inch white head. Very active carbonation.

S: Wonderful tropical aroma. Loads of mango, oranges, and pineapple up front. A very slight musty earthy aroma in the background to round it all together.

T: Very fruity and juicy. Sweet fruit purée with very little bitterness. Mango and even a hint of peach seem the most prominent. Very tropical.

M: Medium bodied, with a smooth creamy texture. Carbonation is much more subtle than the original appearance.

O: A really nice, tropical pale ale. Extremely fruity and sweet. Perfectly suited for a warm summer day/night. Really drinkable too. Could easily have several of these.

App. - Cloudy orange pour with a finger of white head on top. Lots of lacing and a bubbly top.

Smell - Citrus. Heavy on orange with a lot of tropical fruit.

Taste - Excellent! The hops come through big time. Tons of fruit.

Mouth. - A bit heavy but very drinkable. Also excellent.

Over. - This has to be one of my favorites. I'm always excited when I see it on the shelf. Seriously, one of the best pale ales I've ever had.
