This beer is awesome. If I had an never ending supply of citra hops, this would be in stock all the time, no doubt about it.

Brewed today, with a few substitutions, nothing too big. Centennial/Amarillo for bittering because I had to use them up. S-05. I can't wait for it to be finished - I'll update on the result.

I'm going to brew this soon. Subbing some biscuit for the Vienna. I have both light and dark Munich. Which would you recommend for this particular brew? Can't wait to try this!

I just got the results of a competition that I entered with this beer. I scored a 38. Both judges stated that it was to thin and needed a bigger malt backbone. I did sub the victory for the Vienna. So I think next time I make this I may add more victory or biscuit.

I am adding this to my to-brew list. I just dry hopped a cascade/nugget pale ale with 1 oz citra 1 oz cascade and it is delicious!

OK, thinking of using maris otter for the base then in hopes of upping the maltiness a bit.

brewed this guy up about a month ago with a slightly different hop schedule that upped the IBUs quite a bit.

brought 'er home over spring break and served to my family of BMC drinkers. this was the first beer of mine that any of my family members ever drank, and they absolutely loved it. thanks for sharing the recipe.

highly refreshing beer that i'd recommend serving on a warm day. the citra really comes out in this guy.

Just sampled the first bottle - super tasty and light. Ephemeral grapefruit combines nicely with the Cascades. I was worried that 2oz dry hops was going to be overwhelming, but it was spot on. I can see that maybe a little more malt might be desirable, though I'm very happy with it. Did not cold crash, and clarified remarkably.
