Nice yellow color, cloudy. Frothy foam , short persistence. Pine and citrus aroma upfront, medium strong, some floral hops. Medium-high bitter, low malt sweetness. Bit of saltiness. Medium-light body, watery, medium-low carbonation, long lasting dry finish (medium strength).

Decent session IPA, fair beer. Will not buy anymore.

Clear pale blonde lager-like color, with lots of effervescent bubbles continuing to spiral up to the head. The head is 2 fingers, very fluffy, and deep.

Aromas of fresh pink grapefruit, grapefruit pith, pine, and cracker.

Strong citra notes up front, followed by some pine, biscuit, and cracker. What follows is some dirty tap water and watery pine.

Feel is very crispy, airy, and light. Heavy carbonation.

Overall, Citra Sunshine Slacker falls off halfway through the flavor profile, and I don't think it's a necessary element in a session ale. Flavor can still be prominent and alcohol diminished. I'd like to see more fruitiness and flavor throughout the whole profile, not just the first second of it. Still, not a bad beer on a nice day.

Reviewed from 06/25/2015 - talk about slacker!
16oz can into FW Imperial Nonic glass

Light, bright, and refreshing with good amount of Citra hops shining through
Gooseberry with grapefruit, herbals and a lemony zing, light malt cracker base
Crisp and bone dry in the finish with some mouth puckering linger
Very crushable - would have again.
