A: White 1-2 finger head that holds it's own, but doesn't linger too long. The beer is a little hazy orange/gold with pretty good active carbonation.

S: Very citrusy. Orange specifically to me. This is the 5th glass out of the growler and it seems to have grown in aroma. I get a sweet (malty) orange aroma, maybe a touch of pine. Bordering on an IPA, and closer in profile to that than most American Pales. Since it's trying to showcase the Citra Hop, that makes sense.

T: Malt is slightly more evident than in the aroma, and the hops, while there, are dialed back a little more. Still citrusy, though the pines comes more into play. A bit more of a dank flavor than your average APA, and again more of a IPA light than what I think of in an APA. I'd like more bite from the hops.

M: It was a little nicer on the first glass, but it's going flat fast. But, I will review this from the first one. Nice carbonation, got overly gassy and not flat.

D: Very drinkable really, nothing to complain about for a beer to just throw back a few, but nothing really luring you in either.
