22oz. bottle poured into a snifter. Thanx Chris!

(A)- Pours a slightly hazed amber orange color. Some good white froth and lacing.

(S)- Good citrus meets subtle floral notes meets a good caramel malt base.

(T)- Similar to the smell. Great floral citrus and caramel malt.

(M)- A good carbonation level meets a nice balance of hop, malt, and bitterness.

(O)- Its a solid single hopped beer, just nothing all that exciting; quite straightforward.

Honey amber with cornsilk highlights when backlit and a creamy, eggshell head that leaves sticky rings of lace on the glass. The nose is pure Citra, tropical fruity, dank and herbacious with a touch of caramel slathered toast. The flavors are nice, the high alpha Citra does what it does in so many beers, mainly deliver herbal tea, dank weed and tropical fruity flavors in pleasant harmony. The malt backbone is decent and balances perfectly with the hops. Creamy and full bodied, this is a nice drinking brew. This beer is really good, I can't wait to try more beers from Hermitage Brewing. Well done.

Picked this up in Arkansas (Liqour World in F'ville, AR)

Pours honey colored with a pinky of pearl colored head. Decent lacing & average head retention

S: lemons,leafy & herbal hops, pineapples & perfumy

T: Follows the nose, pears & breadyness, some leafy hop profile as well. Some pineapple as this warms, leafy hops, breadyness & pears, plus dryness. Finishes with leafy & dry hops, a touch of caramel & a modicum of pineyness

MF: Medum bodied, slight carbonation, great balance

I like this, but have never tasted some of these flavors in a citra hopped beer. Perhaps this is old, no freshness dating. Still, damn tasty & super drinkability!
