CPA: Citra Pale Ale poured a slightly hazy pale orange with a long lasting creamy foam head that topped off the glass nicely. The aroma of CPA: Citra Pale Ale is the predominant citrus and pine that Citra hops are known for. CPA: Citra Pale Ale starts off sweet, followed by a cascade of fruit flavors including grapefruit, pineapple, lemon, and mango. CPA: Citra Pale Ale leaves the palate with a pine taste and a dry crisp mouthfeel. CPA: Citra Pale Ale is a very drinkable American Pale Ale.


Overall, this is great beer if you're looking to explore Citra hops. You will be able to gather all the information you need about what Citra hops smell and taste like. Odd Side Ales has done a good job matching up the correct malt for the job and the barley does not overpower the Citra hops. Instead, the caramel malts in CPA: Citra Pale Ale reinforce the citrus and floral flavors of the star of the show: Citra hops.

Reminded me of the sweet taste of Blvd. from Kansas City. Recommended by my beer connection at Mega-Bev.

Poured from bottle to tulip glass. Golden orange hue with a beautiful two finger head that dissipates with some nice lacing. Smell is floral and citrus, some cracker. Taste is a mixture of citrus and tropical fruits: grapefruit, mandarin orange, mango, some zesty lime notes, too. Never a bitter sip, just enough balance where it's not sweet, but not too sour. Juicy is a really good way to describe it. A glass of this with bacon, toast and jam in the morning wouldn't be out of order. Refreshing and sessionable. Will definitely be revisiting this one.
