12 oz. Bottle

Pours a very nice golden yellow color, nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, with some nice citrus. The taste is hoppy, citrusy. Medium body. Overall, a tasty brew.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A - Yellow-golden beer, super clear, with a full, tight white head that reduces quickly. Extensive lacing.

S - Big citra hop nose, with mango and resin, a bit of wild grassiness, a bit of dank cat-pee.

T - Sharp hop flavors, slapping you around with resin, some tropical fruit coupling nicely with sweet malts, with a moderately bitter close.

M - Brisk carbonation does not completely scrub the resin build.

O - An interesting brew, this drinks like a full IPA, but manages a 5% ABV. Tasty, bright citra, but like a lot of pure citra brews, though vibrant, the result is not particularly balanced. Add to this the bottle format, and this does not ultimately feel as sessionable as its name would suggest.

This beer is a pale yellow, not quite gold, and cloudy. It has a sweet citrus smell, almost like grapefruit, that has an interesting funk behind it, almost like durrian. The flavour, a tart starfruit, is highly enjoyable and refreshing. However, there is an astringent body and thin consistency.

Bought from Bev Mart $2.25 12oz.
Clear golden color
Slight bitterness, some citrus taste, smooth
Light mouth feel
Low carbonation
Overall an easy drinking beer. If the price was about $8/6-pack I would buy it, but not at the price point it is here.
