It’s pretty much old school west coast IPA at its citra finest....

Well, here is it: other than Emily Didonato lying at the foot of my bed - this is my number 1 want: Kern River Citra.

As I sip I am jolted from a dream - is this real? Am I? First textures are lush and grassy like Warren Beatty trying to woo Natalie Wood. Unfortunately, what comes after it is not Disneyland every night at 9:30 PM - no fireworks. I’m missing that extra hoorah! I’m missing that extra zoom zoom in the boom boom! It’s nice and clean, but then like my 4th ex, it’s kind of one dimensional. It’s ok, but because of the hype going into it, I kind of haz a sad.

Awesome!
Golden with white head. It glows.
Awesome citra smell and super choppy taste. Rivals the alchemists. Gets a bit bitter as I make my way through the glass. 16 oz draft.

Great beer with the creepiest finish. Amazing from the bottle but best on tap.
