Bought a growler and liked it. Awesome nose, mouthfeel, and drinkability. Hoppy but not real bitter hoppy, much more citrus/floral hoppy. The only thing I didn't care for was the finish. Had a wheatish after-taste and I don't really care for wheat brews. Still very much worth a try.

On draft at The Engine Room. After I ordered it seemed like every one else was getting it despite their amazing beer list. Really good look, really good taste. I like this beer for a medium ABV APA. Golden color and an aroma that beats half the high IBU IPAs. Definitely will go for this again.

Big, fluffy, snow-white head from an indelicate pour. Brew is golden straw with orange highlights, and a little thick and hazy - transclucent. Head retention is excellent, with white fuzz lasting the entirety of the glass, and lacing is wide and soapy.

Dank, peppery hop aroma typical of Citra beers. There's some bread and biscuit from the malt, as well.

Huge Citra hop APA - exactly what you'd hope for, and might dare expect. Sharp citrus peel and lemon, balanced by massive sweet, dank notes; big malt base of barely-sweet bread and hints of pale and crystal; peppery spice atop tobacco notes.

Like any good APA, what really sets this above other beers is the mouthfeel, where it really excels. Creamy, damn near chewy for the style, this is a smooth, lively, yet still very drinkable beer.

This is as good a single-hop Citra APA as I've had since Zombie Dust. For such a tiny brewery, the amount of care that clearly went into making this a world-class APA is evident. It's easy to rely on Citra to carry a brew to hop-heads everywhere; it's another to balance the water, yeast, and malt load to make such a creamy, pleasurable beer. Fantastic!

Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a soft golden amber color with a decent little white head. Stringy lace. The aroma had some heavy citrus bitter rind-like hops. Some cracker/bready malts and then a light resin/piney-ness. The flavor seems to lean more towards some orange pulpy sweetness, and some grapefruit and then some orange zest. Aftertaste is full of the citrus blend. Finishes slightly dry. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Moderate carbonation. Good strength from the ABV. Overall, decent APA that I could have again.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a teku glass.

Pours a lightly chill hazed golden orange color with a finger of effervescent white head. The retention is solid, leaving tons of cobwebs of lace before settling into a thin sheet that rests gently atop the beer.

The aroma is an explosion of citrus. Tangerine and oranges, with some grapefruit, clementines, and a touch of lemon-lime. The back end is piney with some cracker malt notes.

The taste is full of orange, tangerine, and ruby red grapefruit on the front, followed by some overripe melon and a finish of bitter pine. The graham cracker malt provides a bready, subtly sweet backbone.

The feel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very smooth, very creamy, yet exceptionally drinkable.

Overall, a fantastic pale ale that can be labeled whatever the hell you want it to be. It's as hoppy as an IPA, but as balanced as a pale ale. It's full of flavor and incredibly drinkable. Possibly the best beer from this brewery.
