poured from a 1L growler

A- a clear light copper color, nice off white head, decent lacing

S- lots of orange, pineapple, with a hint of dankness, not much malt detected.

T- follows the nose, and you can get a bit of crackery malt on the finish. Very much a showcase of Citra hops. Finish doesn't crush you with bitterness, well done.

M- Medium, ample carbonation and nicely dry on the finish.

O- want to know what Citra tastes like? Have this IPA. Great stuff.

Served on-tap at Shady McGrady's.

A - Pours pale yellow with a small half finger tall white head, quickly dissipating down to a light film, leaving small rings of lace on the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of pungent citric hops, fresh cut grass, some pine resin, dash of tropical fruit and some lightly toasted pale malt.

T - Starts off with plenty of citric hops and tropical fruit quickly being joined by the fresh grass and pine resin and finally the pale malt. Finish is pretty bitter with a touch of sweetness, not lingering for very long after consumption.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, bitter feel is very easy to consume. The booze never really comes out from the shadows.

O - A very nice citra IPA. The hops are strong as they should be and the malt is a complement and not a main player, just how I like these to be. I will get my fill of this one while I can.
