look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a...I'm not going to say it, I'm not going to say it, I'm not going to say it...a blonde color. DANGIT! The head isn't even a finger high, and has a white shade. Retention isn't good. Tiny specks of lacing are left on the glass.

S: That textbook Citra stank is there in full force. I'm picking up little to no malt backbone. As a way to show off Citra and nothing more, it does a respectable job - still, I wish there was a bit less stank and a bit more tropical fruit notes. Damnit, I wish this was fresh, then again I only have myself to blame for leaving it in the fridge for a damn month.

T: The general flavor is pretty light. A touch of melon to start, and some crackery malt that intertwines with the hop notes on its finish. It's dead simple, but it gets the job done.

M: Light, dry, light, dry, light, dry, light, and oh yeah, dry, too. The carbonation is intense, almost overly so. Still, it's stupidly easy to drink, and also refreshing.

O: There's room for improvement - the Citra hops could be shown off better, and it could also use less of a carbonic bite - but it's nice enough in its current state. Give me a six pack and 100 degree weather, and I'd probably think of this in a much better light. It certainly beats BMC, that's for damn sure (wait...)
