look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

This one pours a nice dark orange-ish color, with a large foamy white head, and lots of lacing.

Smells like...well, Citra, of course, with cat piss, orange, grapefruit, and orange, with a curious clove/yeasty aroma as well.

There's definitely something off and unintended about this one, as it has a very clovey, yeasty, and estery finish. This can't be intended- it tastes like a saison, instead of an IPA. The hop character is admittedly pretty good- lots of Citra, orange, grapefruit, etc, plus the classic cat piss, with a definite grassy bitterness. The yeasty finish is real tought to get by, though. I'm a bit disappointed in this one.

This has a juicy mouthfeel, but with an off putting finish, due to the issues described above.

From an undated 22 oz bottle, pours a moderately hazy golden orange. A finger of foam leaves an initial ring then streaky, spotty lacing. Smell is primarily grassy, lemony citrus. There's also a spicy herbal note, like eucalyptus, and also cloves. The taste is the same, with the clove note dominating and making it taste almost like a Belgian. Not bad, but I'm guessing the phenolic clove thing is not intentional. Loved Prospect, but this one has issues. Still, a decent drinker.

Hazy brew and overall nice beer. Had this bottle before getting into another beer from Foley's lineup, Prospect. In comparison Prospect was hoppier and fruiter, whereas Citrennial had this lovely bright middle but the finish left much to be desired. It was a bit peaty and dry in contrast to the fruitier and raw hoppiness of Prospect.

It was still a very nice IPA, but was at least 5-10 points lower than Prospect on a scale of 100.

16 oz can poured into nonic pint.

A: Small right looking creamy white head that settles to a film. Body is a hazy light orange leaning toward gold.

S: lots of grass, lemon, and light cantaloupe with a solid malt and resin smell. Slightly floral.

T: lots of grass and light cantaloupe and a decent bit of bitterness. This beer has a clingy feel a little floral.

M: Medium bodied leaning toward full and lots of cling on the finish.

O: It’s an ok beer, surprised by the amount of bitterness. I wish the Citra hops came across as more fruity than grassy and floral.

On tap at The Bench. Clear golden orange. Smell is orange, grapefruit, and pale malt sweetness. Taste follows suit. Lots of orange and grapefruit. Very sweet. Medium body. Very nice hop flavor, but excessively sweet.
