I wanted so much to love this beer as much as everyone else does. It is decent but for me, overrated. The hype is better than the beer. Good brew....yes. Drink again....yes. Perfect pale ale...no

Heads and shoulders above the common pale ale. Strong flavors without being too alcohol forward. Well worth the search for a normally hard to find beer.

Bottled 16 days ago and had alongside a 3.5-week-old can of PseudoSue.

L -- Pours a pale golden color with the slightest bit of haze and a 2-finger head produced with moderately aerated pour. Some retention and good lacing.
S -- Pineapple, earth, candied grapefruit, papaya, mango, cannabis, and a hint of that rubber hops smell too
T -- Big earthy and grassy flavors upfront, rounded out by cracker malts and hints of tropical fruit and dank pine resin
F -- Nice, well-rounded mouthfeel, especially given the fairly low ABV. Crisp and refreshing. Medium carb and medium mouthfeel. Finishes dry with a restrained bitterness
O -- My main complaint with this and all other citra-centric beers I've had is that the aromas and flavors are heavy on the grassy/earthy characteristics. I'm personally more of a fruit-forward hop guy (galaxy and mosaic topping my list), and I think I subconsciously equate any sort of harsh grassiness with 'old'. Still, this is an absolute joy to drink and I'm glad to have located a bottle during a five hour train layover in Chicago
