Knee Deep Brewing Company Citra Extra Pale Ale

The Knee Deep Brewing Company is in Lincoln, California.

This 6.0% ABV single hop ale is brewed with Citra hops.  It pours a clear copper in color with a half-inch of creamy and thick off-white head.  The aroma is light citrus and melon over a solid malt base.  The taste is more malt forward than hops, it drinks like English-style tea made with cream.  There are strong tea notes, but a creamy mouthfeel.  The finish is bitter and dry.  All IPA's or other beers that put the hop in the name should have a brewed on date.  Again, I must wonder how fresh this bottle is, I expected a much more citrus hop forward beer when they put "citra" in the name.
