One of our most refreshing ingredient kits available!  The Citra® Session is a low ABV, low SRM pale ale.  The thing we love the most about this kit is that the Citra® hop profile comes through beautifully and is able to shine due to a basic malt bill, low ABV, and clean bitterness from our magnum hops.

If you're looking for a clean, hoppy beer that you'd be able to have a couple of without the IPA buzz, then the Citra® Session Pale Ale should definitely be on your radar!

Estimated OG: 1.040-1.045
SRM: 5-7
Estimated IBU's: 29-33
Estimated alcohol ABV%: 4.2-4.5%

Good deal of the day on a session IPA with good reviews.

Love All Day IPA. This kit seems to be close. Did an all grain kit, believe it was one of my first attempts at all grain, wasn't impressed. Thought giving the extract a try.

Folks at work love the Citra Pale Ale but the high ABV is daunting. I'll try this out and see if they like it better.

Exactly what it says it is
If you're looking for a good, drink-it-every-day session IPA, look no further. This is the beer for you. It's easy to make and very easy drinking. I'm making it a permanent on-tap choice in my kegerator.

#1 problem, can't make it fast enough!! Believe I added 1 cup Quaker rolled oats to the specialty grains, = lace from top to bottom! Best beer I've had! Better than all day IPA hands down! Two week bottle conditioning + 1 week cold conditioning for best results. Will be my new staple beer. Boost %' add a little unrefined cane sugar to the end of the boil.

Flavorful session Ale
This is a very good low alcohol ale. I added an ounce of Amarillo to the dry hop of this ale. Makes a very nice hoppy finish.

Great Solid beer
Citra is one of my favorite hops, so this beer was killer. Not overpowering (it is a sessions), but still bringing home the flavor.
Decent price too. Good bang for the buck.

Great flavor, body, and head. This was my first home brew and it was a great success! I would have paid much more for a case of this at the distributor and had the pride of doing it myself. Highly recommended and will purchase again.

A Personal Favorite
This kit is a personal favorite of mine and of my friends who hang out near the keg. I brew it for every Thanksgiving now and have it out while deep frying turkeys in my backyard. So far, no keg of this beer has every made it until Black Friday. Easy to brew with consistently good results every time. It is also good with some of the Citra hops substituted with Amarillo hops. :)

Good solid beer
Good flavor and nice bouquet. Hops come through well, but not overpowering.
Easy to drink, and since it's a sessions it does not get you rocked after the first one.
Give it a try!
