A nice summer beer. Easy to drink and could be sessionable. Taste was a little thin for me but decent with a meal. I liked the packaging and smell when poured from a 12 oz bottle. Very smooth but not a standout for me

A light golden pour. A nice light pale ale. Clean and crisp with some hoppy citrus flavors. Slight bitter finish. Great while mowing my lawn on a hot Memorial Day.

Picked-up a mixed fifteen-pack of cans at Kappy's in Norwell for about twenty dollars. This is a fine brew, a standout in this box, would definitely buy again.

A hint of pine at the finish.

This beer is a favorite go to, but whenever I offer it to friends that don't love hoppy beers it takes some convincing due to the name. Honestly, it doesn't taste like anything close to an IPA. More just a flavorful pale ale, which can be hard to come by. So I'd give it like a 2 on marketing, but the beer itself is lovely!

Look - poured from a 12 oz can. Clear and golden in color. Two-finger head with considerable lacing. Appears to be quite carbonated.
Smell - citrus (lemon, lime, grapefruit) and pine flavors, on the more sour end of things.
Taste - an equal balance of malty and hoppy. on the floral side for hoppiness. Very drinkable.
Feel - light bodied, medium-high carbonation, standard ABV for an APA.
Overall - an easy drinking and refreshing APA with an edge on citrus flavors. Should be a very approachable beer for most people.

Solid American Pale Ale. Starts with a citrus taste to start and malty. Good balance. Nice straw color.

Citra-Hopped Live - Southern Tier
Pale Ale - 5.5% abv

L - 3-finger dense white head atop a translucent orange body.

S - super citrus. A lot of sweetness, some alcohol, some breadiness.

T - Citrus at first, washed over immediately by bready malt. Very low bitterness. Rather sweet.

F - medium body with relatively high carb.

O - a decent summer beer. Less appealing when it’s sub-zero out.

Exceptionally clear pale straw with a finger-and-a-half of off-white head. Sloppy lacing. Sweet aroma of melon and lightly tropical fruits. These continue to the taste where they're coupled with crackery, pils-like malt and a moderately strong, grassy hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A perfectly drinkable, middle-of-the-road APA.

Had a pint of this on tap at 716 in Buffalo. Had this as the first of 2 from Southern Tier on the evening. This one is labelled as a Cite IPA. I love me some Citra but this one just not have enough taste for what I'm looking for in an IPA these days.
