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.

Big thanks to Jon for this one. 22oz. bottle into a Heady Topper stemless snifter.

Pours a big2 finger frothy white head with great retention. Beer is a clear pale orange. Lacing is thick and layered with excellent stick. Really nice.

Nose is citrus, pine and cane sugar. Dank apricot and papaya hop bitterness too. Great aroma from a pale ale!

Opens citrus and cane sugar sweetness. Papaya, mango and other tropical fruit hoppiness come in towards the middle complemented by a sappy bitterness. More tropical fruit with just the slightest bit of resin at the end. Finishes tropical fruit sweetness. Cane sugar and citrus aftertaste. I can't see how this gets better.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Smooth and light in the mouth and crisp and clean going down. Finishes clean with slightly lingering aftertaste. Excellent.

This is the best pure pale ale I've ever had not made by Hill Farmstead. Excellent all the way around.
