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.

Poured from a growler into a snifter
Much thanks to Dontcounttoday for picking this up for me

A: Pours a light, golden amber color with a small white head. Minimal spotty lacing.

S: Amazingly fruity. Peach, pineapple, passionfruit and bright citrus. Sweet with just a little bit of citrus-y tartness on the nose. A mild, earthy caramel blends with the fruit to give the impression of sweet peach tea.

T: Opens with some citrusy and flower notes, then quickly descends into a blissful mesh of tropical fruit. Just incredibly juicy with peach and pineapple coming to the forefront. The finish is clean and crisp.

M: Medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation.

O: One of the best pale ales I have ever had. I figured it would be comparable to Zombie Dust, but somehow it's a completely different beast. It reminds me of peach tea in the best possible way. The fruit flavors are somehow unique from all the other citra hopped beers. Track this one down and enjoy.

Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks to drewone for sharing this one.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
