Poured into a tumbler pint at TapWerks in Oklahoma City.

Crystal clear gold with a frothy white head and loads of chunky lace. Gorgeous citra nose - lemon-lime, grapefruit, and white grape - with a palate that follows suit, hyperfocused on hop taste over bitterness. Malt bill is light but noticeable, a mildly creamy combo of caramel and white bread. Finishes spicy, crisp.

Love this beer - one of the only session IPAs that comes close to Founders All Day. This is on par, if not surpassing that high watermark. Excellent.

Pours a hazy amber with a fast-fading foamy white head and rather large bubbles.
The aroma is full of pineapple and orange with a slight fruity sweetness.
Taste is orange juice and orange pith, pineapple, mango and grapefruit. A nice lingering bitter finish that is quite refreshing.
Mouthfeel is medium.

bright yellowish gold, nice head that dissipates somewhat quickly. smell is all hops. if you like citra this one is for you. taste follows with abundant hops and almost no malt. I love the bitterness that comes with this beer. I will be buying more of this very soon.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into IPA glass.

Appearance: Golden-orange with good-sized white head and decent lacing.

Smell: Definitely Citra hops, with orange, grapefruit and lemon.

Taste: The Citra hops are strong here too, with the same orange, grapefruit and lemon. Some toast and biscuit malt backing. Quite bitter on the finish - more so than most Session IPAs.

Feel: Light to medium body, but certainly not thin. Moderate carbonation. Very dry finish.

Overall: Very solid Session IPA that shows off the Citra well. Maybe a titch too bitter for the desired easy drinking session experience.
