Pipeworks Lil Citra

Brewery: Pipeworks Brewing Company

Brewer Description: Not much information on their website or on the can. Just based on the name and what I tasted, I would venture a guess that this was single hop Citra.

Intro: A 1 pint can canned sometime in 2016 with the all important month date cut off the lip of the bottom of the can. Poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.
Appearance: It poured a hazy golden orange colour with a big three finger white head that had great retention and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Strong tropical and citrus fruits. Mango, peach, orange, orange pith and a touch of lemon.
Taste: Tropical pineapple juice with light peach and mango at the beginning, is then followed by lightly bitter citrusy orange pith and lemon zest.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, dry, light bodied with moderate to high carbonation.
Overall: A great Session IPA. Extremely drinkable especially on a hot summers day. Full of tropical and citrus fruit. Could very well be my go to Session IPA.
