I brewed this in late November, kegged it last week - hit it with 30psi for 2 days, dropped it to 10 and let it sit for a few more. Nice blonde color, dry, light body, light on the alcohol, very very floral from the Citra; itsmells fantastic. I pulled my first pint off the keg last night - this is a delicious beer.
Nothing complicated or crazy, just a simple brew that turned out well enough I thought it was worth sharing.
