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.

4.13/5  rDev -10.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a Goose Island tulip. The pour is clear with a slight haze and golden-orange in color. it sports a really nice, fluffy white head that slowly dissipates down to some large, clumpy lacing. On the nose I get some sweet and tart notes of pineapples, oranges, and a hint of toast with marmalade.

Medium-light body with a surprising flavor. It's fairly sweet and grainy up front with toast and cracker flavors. At mid-palate, the hops start to kick in, but it's not what I expected at all. I expected a sharp, citrus-fruit wave of flavor, and instead get a dank, mulchy, mossy, hemp-like flavor. Good, just unexpected. The grainy sweetness carries through the back of the palate and balances everything out nicely. The beer doesn't seem bitter at all. The finish is dank and hoppy and slightly sweet.

Overall, a really enjoyable Pale Ale. It's nice to see brewers take this style seriously, even though they must realize that many beer geeks would pass this by without a second thought while reaching for an IPA or IIPA, never realizing what they're missing. Kind of makes me wonder if I should be exploring more pale ales myself.
