Two cans, thanks Jim R (coachee).
Poured into a becher pint glass.
The appearance was a great looking murky/hazy burnt yellow/orange color touched by a smacking of semi-thick foamy head. This dissolved fairly nice and quick to leave some semi-thick lace.
The aroma had a wonderful citrusy bittersweet rind to pulpy character up front.
The flavor was mildly sweet with a sturdy sly bitterness enveloping the aftertaste very nicely.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping to sessionable sort of quality to it. Carbonation felt nice and low as expected. ABV felt as expected. Smooth and semi-creamy finish.
Overall, a very well done New England styled IPA well worthy of many more pours.

A: The beer is very hazy pale yellow in color. It poured with just a short white head.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose—oranges and limes seem to stand out in particular.
T: The taste follows the smell and is very citrusy, having flavors of limes and oranges along with hints of melons. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied and a little juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This APA does a very good job at showcasing the Citra hops in both the smell and taste. It is easy to drink and can be considered sessionable.

Canned on 11/6/18

Pours a glossy, opaque gold with a soft finger of white foam; decent retention gives way to thin but consistent and webby lacing to wall the glass.

Aromas of ripe pineapple, citrus and tropical tones, dank orange, mango peel, and slightly oniony vegetal tones.

Taste brings bits of flaky cracker upfront, lightly saturated in citrus and tropical tones; delicate, pithy grapefruit and prickly pine work their way in alongside overripe peach, faint bubble gum, and mango smoothie over a crisp, crackery base on the finish.

Mouthfeel shows a medium body, slightly creamy but unwaveringly crisp; crescendos beautifully on the mid-palate under the influence of citrus and prickly hops; excellently balanced carbonation with just the right amount of juiciness coming across the palate; crisp and incredibly refreshing.

Juicy and incredibly crisp, with a flavor profile eccentrically designed to shine brightest toward the back end, which it does to great success while allowing its most refreshing properties to shine. I’m not normally one to think ahead, but I can’t help but think of how stunning this profile might be if given the double dry-hop treatment. A great hazy pale ale nonetheless.

On tap at Brewskival 2018.

Pours a hazy yellow with fine, soapy head.

Smell is citrusy with notes of lime, melon and some grass.

Taste starts off grassy with just a whiff of onion, before unleashing a torrent of citrus, balanced by a nice moderate bitterness and nice hop bite.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a terrific APA/IPA hybrid, very refreshing.

Poured from a recent can purchase, into the Pint glass
A - Lemon juice color, a bit of haze, not excessive, a thin to leave white cap is fed by gentle carbonation
S - Lots of orange, pineapple, as well as a burnt peel element.
T - Sweet malt, some of those tropical elements from the nose follow on the palate, add a bit of aspirin as the only flaw in this catagory
M - A nice medium body, the offering has some edges to it, the bitter matches well with the semi sweet. Linger is on the sweet side.
O - A very forward pale ale,nice constructed, the malt bill is a bit sweet, but that helps showcase the hops I guess

when rowmark comes back after stopping at proclimation and tosses you a can of this and says "try this dude" you say thank you and make sure you get that bugger opened up that week.

i love me some citra and i love me some pale ale and this one delivers. the pale ale body doesn't hold the citra hop quite like an IPA, but this is a damn fine pale and the citra soak over the top is real nice. light and fluffy...with a nice malt backbone of a pale ale. i'm REALLY impressed.

Drank on tap at Armsby Abbey, Worcester, MA
Served in a tulip

Gorgeous appearance. The cloudy, peachy-yellow body was capped by an inch-tall, super tight and frothy, bright white crown that deposited a patchy blanket of lacing along the glass. Outstanding retention. The head slowly dropped to a thin, lasting cap and a small collar.

The aroma was amazingly hoppy and dank. Cannabis notes dominated. Skunky weed came to mind. Tropical fruits were also apparent. Overripe guava and papaya specifically. Touch of mango too. As the beer warmed, subtle citrus notes appeared.

The flavor profile was outstanding as well. Big citrus presence. Loads of freshly squeezed orange juice. Bit of vanilla too. Orange creamsicle came to mind. There beer was anchored by a moderately sweet malty backbone that had a honey-ish quality to it. Subtle peach notes were also detectable. The beer finished with more citrus but surprisingly hardly any bitterness.

Outstanding mouthfeel. Super plush and creamy. Full bodied for the style. The liquid contained a fine, moderate effervescence that turned fluffy and smooth on the palate.

With its intense hop potency and full mouthfeel, Derivative: Citra drinks much bigger than your typical American pale ale. Folks that enjoy their hoppy beers on the punchy but sweeter side should definitely appreciate this. Hopefully we see four-packs of this beer series more often in the Boston area.
