20oz pint at the Century Park location - I'm not adding another redundant place here, just waiting for all the Brewsters to be listed together.

This beer appears a slightly hazy medium copper amber hue, with one skinny finger of fluffy, loosely foamy off-white head, which leaves some nice webbed tree branch lace around the glass as things dip away.

It smells of musty orange, grapefruit, and pineapple fruit, bready caramel malt, a touch of lemon-scented polish, and further leafy, floral hops. The taste is more of the same - gritty, unfocused domestic grocery aisle citrus, a sort of sour bready malt, wet, rather innocuous pine needles, a hint of earthy yeast, and a certain perfumed, lightly astringent booze warming.

The carbonation is fairly soft and not really any concern, the body an adequate medium weight, and plainly smooth with a wee bit of clamminess. It finishes off-dry, the bready, grainy malt lingering amongst the loitering fruitiness of the hops.

Not a bad brew, it surely presents the Citra varietal, warts and all. A bit too round and flabby to truly satisfy my crisp IPA ideal, but flavourful enough to enjoy a round, safely removed as I am from the Boxing Day craziness transpiring outside.
