Had this on tap at Crux in Bend, OR on 20 Jan 13.

A: Light and bright amber pour with a finger of head that settles to a smaller rim.

S: Sweet citrus aromas jump out of the glass. Definitely smell the citra hops right away. Tropical fruit and malty sweetness give it a great aroma.

T: Initially very sweet up front, then a more pronounced hop bite comes through. Melon, orange, grapefruit all give a fresh citrus hop punch. Pale malt balances and it finishes non-aggressively.

M: Medium mouthfeel, average carbonation, feels like there is some residual sugar after it goes down.

O: Might be too sweet for some palates, but it is an interesting APA/IPA that is thirst quenching and flavorful. I also tend to love anything with citra, and I imagine other citra lovers will like this beer.

A). A great light amber color, bright and clean but with the look of some flavor to come
S). Smells sweet, should since it is a Sweet Pale Ale, slight hoppiness to it as well, fruity.
T). Sweet up front, hop citrus finish after, refreshing clean taste, very easing drinking.
M). Virtually non existant except for the sweetness left behind. Dominates the hop for finish and mouthfeel.
O). Very good! Enjoyed it while visiting the brewery on a warm summer night. Good if you have a sweet craving otherwise go with a straight IPA.

I like citra. This is citra and not bitter. At 7.1% it is not boozy at all. Nicely played.

Crux is a great stop in Bend
light amber with perfect head
sweet malty citra aroma
sweet but not overly, I didn't think citra could be like this.
great stuff, I'd like to go back and crush a few more, was hoping for bottles along with the hoppy pilsner
