Picked this beer up in San Diego on a pit stop. Figured the "citra" branding would be a sure win.

Appearance – Pours a light, cloudy, golden color. Little to no head and spotted lacing.
I prefer a heavier head and thicker coating, but was still optimistic.

Smell – Heavy citrus zest and light citra hops. The smell was good. Prefer a little more hop smell, but overall good.

Taste – Citra hits your mouth quick, however it dissipates just as quickly and you get just a light hop taste. Was pretty disappointed in the taste.

Mouthfeel – Lightly carbonated and smooth.

Drinkability – Easy to drink. Goes down smooth and leaves your mouth feeling refreshed. It's similar to drinking the lightest beer in the world with some hops.

Overall - Not a bad beer. However the citra didn't live up to its name and the beer was almost pilsner quality. It's ok if you aren't into heavy beer drinking and want to try something different than your multi-million $ ad company beers. I wouldn't pay $7 again for it tho.

Serving type: 22oz bomber

On tap at El Segundo Brewing Company in El Segundo, CA.

Pours a clear light orange with a foamy bone colored 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 fruit, and citrus zest. Taste is much the same with a citrus zest flavor 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 mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that smells a bit better than it tastes in my opinion.
