4.2/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

From 09/05/13 notes. On tap at the brewpub in Ardmore, PA.

a - Pours a hazy yellow color with one finger of fluffy bright white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of awesome citra hops, lemons and lemon zest, oranges, tropical fruits, fruity malts, floral hops, and some key lime. Awesome nose; the citra hops smell outstanding in this one. Best smelling of their series so far.

t - Tastes of citra hops, lemons, grapefruit juice, pine hops, light floral notes, fruity malts, wheat, grains, and yeast. Very good but nowhere near the nose. A less intense version of the nose with less tropical fruits. No bitterness which is nice.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Body is quite smooth and easy to drink, with no bitterness.

o - Overall a great beer; probably my favorite of the Single Hop series beers so far. The nose is amazing, and it is very easy to drink; hoping they make this one again.

Hazy straw golden color with a two-finger cap of bone white head resting on top. Sticky rings of lacing cling to the glass while drinking.

Juicy tangerine and fresh cut grass in the nose. Plenty of zesty Citra aroma and hops with soft saison yeasty esters and soft sweetness with toasted grain.

Citra hoppiness up front on the tongue, tangerines and citrus peel. Toasted grain and wet straw with softly funky saison yeast and a touch of cracked pepper. Lightly sweet, pleasantly hoppy, delicate and flavorful on the tongue.

Medium body, nicely carbonated, creamy and light on the tongue. One of the better releases in this Singel hop series, no surprise though given my proclivity for Citra hop flavors.

Tired Hands were plenty strong when they put together this dry hopped citra brew. Pours a small head with a nice golden color. The citra hops produce an incredible perfect aroma that was mouth watering. The mouthfeel could use a little more carbonation for my liking but the growler may have allowed it to lose some of it's muster. The taste was excellent, good traditional saison flavor with a citra hop twist. I recommend this brew, it's very good.

Bottom Line: Find it! drink it!

thanks to tenderbranson69 for the share, enjoyed from a goblet chilled.

The color is sunny, golden with moderate haziness and thick white cream with fine bead. The smell is very citrusy, lemon zest and subtle funky edge with a mild pepper and rind aroma. The feel is very dry and juicy at the same time with some mild spice and light astringency with light yeastiness in the finish.

The hoppy citrus flavor has a tangy lemony and slightly spiced essence with a mild zesty flavor with a light bitterness. The malt is very gentle and the taste of the yeast has a slight earthy funky accent with light tropical fruit flavor rounding out the mix of yeast and hops. Overall this is very good, the citra definitely is a pleasant flavor to augment the saison yeast. I would drink this again, the relatively low abv makes it drinkable
