Poured into a nonic a clear medium golden with a large fluffy white crown that settled very slowly into a frothy mass.A big shot of grapefruit hops hits ya in the nose along with some overripe tangerine,a sweetish biscuit malt is noticable as well.A healthy dose of citric hops over top of sweet biscuit on the palate,more fruity hops than bitter.A great pale ale,it has a huge dose of hops but it's actually a pretty rounded palate.

I've had this twice now. Once a six-pack from the local Binny's, and tonight with a fresh case (bottled yesterday!) direct from 3F. The first time around I wanted to make the most of my bottles and drank one at a time among other beers. I was a bit underwhelmed. There is a very clear single-hop character and the flavor is big without being overpowering, but it just didn't seem as special as I was hoping for.
This most recent batch, though, illustrates that a fresh pale ale is the best pale ale. I think this is a very good example of a Citra-based single-hop beer.
The malt is barely noticeable, providing a sort of background flavor that lets the hops show through. Medium-body with a pale-amber color. Carbonation bulks up the medium body to provide a moderate mouthfeel. Certainly heavier than a mass-market beer but not enough to really weigh it down. I can drink quite a few pints without slowing down.
I made some shrimp scampi tonight and I must say this works pretty well as a pairing. The carbonation is big, the hops are very evident, and the medium body manages to complement the buttery richness of my food without being too light or heavy. I don't think this would work very well with strongly-spiced cuisine or heartier red meat, but with seafood and/or brighter flavors it works very well. It would work well with a loaded hamburger, but not so much with a hot dog or a steak–if you get what I mean.
As I implied earlier though - fresher is better. After it's a few weeks old it's not *bad* but it's certainly not as good either.

Golden amber color with a white head that settles to a steady cap and laces the glass all the way down. Big citrus and tropical notes combine with a bready, caramel like malt presence. Taste is of citrus fruits, grapefruit, orange and tangerine. Tropical flavors of mango, pineapple and guava. Underneath the blast of fruit flavors that ride the whole way through the palate is a great sweet bread malt presence. Medium body, crisp mouthfeel and semi dry finish. Overall a great APA. Is it worth the hype? It's a great APA which showcase the citra hop extremely well. It's a top APA for sure so the hype is at least partially warranted.
