I agree with Raul. Watery citra cut grass taste.

A- Translucent through, minimal head. Medium ring with low retention.

S- I get the cut grass from Raul. Some minor citra, some non citrus hop profile.

T- Watery citra, but very sessionable obviously. I like this more than non citra pales.

M- Pretty watery, but works with the sessionable thing.

O- Low rate citra, but I still would drink it over a malt bomb pale

Out of a bottle and into the Teku.

This thing is a disgrace to the citra name. More like, "citra, I just mowed my lawn and then threw the scraps into the tank," citra. Not teally feeling this one, my peeps. Thin, astringent...tastes like McDondald's if they tried to go green.

Pass on it, my children.

Pours a pale gold, slightly hazy, with delicious white foamy head. Sinks unevenly, but gorgeous lace left behind. Great.

Smells fruity. Apple & pear with a touch of pineapple and peach. Slight petrochemical tinge and bit of a green edge. Pleasant.

Tastes odd. Well, unexpected. Grainy & slightly toasty. Bit of hop oil that's a bit resinous late and cleans it up as well, but yeah, definitely not as fruity/tangy as expected. Dryer, and more resinous to the point of toasty. Well-constructed palate though.

Decent fullness, bit of hop-pull as it goes down. Not bad.

Interesting drop. Feel like it should be very hoppy and fresh, but isn't quite. It isn't too much poorer for it though.
