Eureka - CitraEureka - Citra
Notes: Our Jam! Eureka w/Citra explodes with citrus fruit on the nose and the palate , and finishes cleanly with light bits of cracker malt. Someone forgot to tell it that it's only 4.1% alcohol. A beautiful and pungent, yet delicate and highly drinkable beer!

Canned: 04/20/21

L: Pours a pale gold color with a full haze. A gentle pour gives a finger and a half of fine, white head with good retention. The head leaves fat rings of lace as it goes down.

S: Oranges, grapefruit, citrus rind, a touch of grainy malt, and a hint of tropical fruit.

T: This one is packed with flavor for a 4.2% ABV beer. I get orange rind, grapefruit flesh, a touch of lemon-lime, a light grainy malt character lending a touch of sweetness, light notes of passionfruit, and a bit of herbal bitterness on the backend and finish.

F: Medium-light body with medium to medium-low carbonation. The mouthfeel is smooth with a bit of creaminess coming in mid palate and riding to the finish which has very light dryness to it.

O: This is an excellent blonde and an excellent example of what can be done with citra in a low ABV beer. If I didn't see the haze I could almost imagine I was drinking a Lawson's Super Session; granted the mouthfeel has definately got a bit of the signature Treehouse house style to it. Highly recommended!

A: Pours a hazy yellow color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap

S: Lots of citrus up front along with some lighter tropical fruit and floral notes

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the citrus and then slowly picks up some tropical fruit, floral tones, and crackery malt. Lightly bitter. Finishes with lingering citrus

M: Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Soft

O: A very good blonde ale that does a great job highlighting the citra. Super easy to drink. Definitely worth checking out

Pours a hazy yellow with a quickly dissipating head. Looks more carbonated than a typical TH beer, maybe because the body is thinner (no surprise at its low ABV).

Nose is straight citra: grapefruit and lime with just a touch of grass.

Really nice body, certainly lighter and less fluffy than TH IPAs, but just right for a easy drinker.

Flavors are once again pure citra, this is just delicious.

A wonderful beer. Perfect for a warm afternoon or to cap off a day of heavier beers.

This beer is a conundrum to me. It doesn’t look like a blonde ale (never seen one that is cloudy), and the mouthfeel is a bit “brighter” than I’ve seen in blonde ales.

But it smells great (obvious citrus aromas given the Citra hopping, but also a malt note), and it tastes great.

All in all, I’m not sure it’s a blonde ale, but I am sure that I really like it, which is what matters, IMHO.

O: easy drinking; refreshing; not as hop forward as I expected;

Canned 6/12/20. "Citralicious deliciousness!" Light yellow, somewhat hazy appearance with dense white foam. Nice citrusy smell. Taste was a little milder than Tree House DIPAs, but still was very bright and refreshing. The citrus tang lingered on the back of the tongue long after the beer was gone. Extremely drinkable beer, perfect for quaffing by the pool on hot days. I still prefer the heft of some of the more robust TH beers, but this one is a really nice change of pace, and better than most of the TH pale ales.

Canned 6/12. Pours a pale golden yellow, a shade darker than the can it came in. A thick frothy head, drinking it is like trying to get through the whipped cream on top of a milkshake. I’m glad the word “pungent” is in the description, because that is a 100 accurate way to describe the smell. Citrus hops are very powerful, light bready malt undercurrent. Taste is dank citrusy hops, flavors of lemon and mild orange. Feel is light bodied, slightly dry finish, very easy sipper. I have not had a lot of this style, and a number of the ones I have had incorporated adjuncts. This doesn’t need any-it’s a straight up refreshing easy sipper, and it’s my first non IPA from Tree House, so I can see they’re not a one trick pony.

16oz can into Night Shift stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Nose is super fresh aromas of citrus fruit, sweet lemon and cane sugar. Bright, aromatic and delicious. Beer opens crisp. I get lemon, fresh cut oranges and a touch of grassiness towards the end. Real nice. Body is light with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively on the palate and goes down crisp, refreshing and clean.

Could be one of the most drinkable beers ever. Perfect for the warm summer days.

16oz. can served in a willibecker. Pours a bright, straw gold with a loose, quarter inch, white head. Clarity is somewhat hazy. Nose is lovely - huge hits of Citra upfront and light toasted malts in the background. Taste consistent with nose; albeit, malt character is upfront and hop character is quite subdued, yet floral and citrus notes still come out. Mouthfeel is light in body with a bright carbonation. Overall, really quite quaffable and enjoyable ay 4.2%

A nice hop-first blonde. Tangerine color in the glass, creamy lace head. The Citra hop flavor ran a little ahead of the malt flavor, giving a little juice, and a little more heft than a conventional blonde. Best in summer.
