Poured into a tulip glass its a murky brownish orange. Soft creamy foam layered on the surface, leaves a little bit of lace up top.

Tropical fruit aroma, grapefruit and citrus peel with equal parts pale malt.

Tastes of overripe fruit, fruit cocktail, sweet pale malt. Resiny bitter grapefruit. Pretty malty, seems like a DIPA in APA form, if that makes any sense at all. Medium bodied and fairly drinkable. Not far off from NvU and the like, it's pretty burly for an APA but it's good.

8.5 abv.
Pours hazy orange, some floating sediment, two finger rich head that slowly recedes to a thin lacing.
Big smell of pineapple up front, also sweet oranges, mango and green leafiness with a touch of pine. Nice hoppy smell atop a sturdy caramel malt aroma.
Punch of hops in the taste, packed with flavour, not with bitterness. The pineapple stays big, mango, papaya, nice tropical notes, on equal footing with sweet citrus. There's a light fruit jam feel, especially backed by the mild caramel backbone. Low pine notes, green finish, but not extremely bitter, leaving lots of fruit in the aftertaste.
Medium body, a bit oily, medium carbonation, no booze.
Great hops in this one, nicely handled, a great refreshing Summer beer with a bit more kick.

Pours an effervescent honey color with with 3 fingers of rocky cream colored head. Some hazing as advertised, stellar head retention & lacing

S: Woody & bready, lacking aroma compared to the flavor

T: Woody & herbal hops, breadyness, grassy with pomelo & a little mango up front. More mango as this warms, woodyness & tangerine as well as this warms,a little grassyness as well. Finishes with woody & herbal hops, a little pine, dryness & tangerine peel

MF: Medium body, slight carbonation, nice balance

Pretty good, kind of pricey & a freshness date would not hurt, nose is a bit subdued

Bottle picked up at West Lakeview Liquors. Served in a Kuhnhenn tulip.

A - White foam settles to a near-complete cap, specks of lace. Lightly hazed golden orange.

S - Massive Citra aroma, with juicy, zesty orange and tropical fruits dominating. There's a light onion note that makes me wonder if some other hops got mixed in as well. Malt sweetness is moderate, with mostly buttered biscuit.

T - The taste is similarly heavy on citrus flesh and pith, with some mild zesty notes as well. Malt is similarly restrained, but imparts a bit of sweetness to it. Lower bitterness, but still more present than some other Citra beers I've had.

M - Medium body, pleasant carbonation, dry finish, with lingering hop oils and resins. No alcohol.

D - It's a nice Citra pale ale. ABV and malt heft is a bit higher than you'd expect from a pale ale - this is very much into IPA territory for me. Other than the price, I can't see why you wouldn't want to drink a ton of this one.
