A- Light amber color with 1 finger, creamy head. Awesome lacing and trailing.
S - Grapefruit, grapefruit rind, pine, pepper, a little bit of caramel, and some booze.
T - Follows the smell. Bitter grapefruit, orange, a fair amount of pine, a little pepper, caramel, and booze. Grapefruit rind aftertaste. Pineapple becomes more noticeable as it warms.
M - On the lighter side of medium. Feels light on the tongue. Somewhat creamy, oily, and drying.
O - I enjoyed experiencing Citra on its own for the first time. I'm already having flashbacks of other beers where Citra had to have played a big role. This was a good beer, but I don't think I would drink it very often. It did its job of exposing me to the Citra hop as a stand-alone very well.

Poured on draft at U Pick 6 in Erie, PA. This was my first encounter with a single, citra hopped IPA. I loved the complex, fruity aroma and taste. The appearance was hazy copper with a nice head and lacing down to the bottom. I will definitely seek this one out again...or maybe brew a clone.
