COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is not candy or mother’s milk. It is not brewed by gypsies or aliens, nor does it contain any zombie dirt. This is an American Style IPA brewed with Citra Hops. It is citrusy, sticky, hoppy and delicious. Simply drink it and enjoy it. Don’t hoard this beer, Citra Ass Down and drink it now.

(Online description:) This is a very hop forward American style IPA. Brewed with Pale, Vienna, Munich and wheat malt for a solid base for all American hops, focusing mainly on the variety “Citra.” Citra hops are a relatively new variety introduced in 2008. It was bred as a hybrid of a number of different hops, including Hallertauer Mittelfrüh, U.S. Tettnanger, East Kent Golding, Bavarian, Brewers Gold, and other unknown hops. The resulting hop, Citra, has a distinct citrusy and tropical fruit flavor and aroma. In Citra ass down we used American Columbus for bittering and 11# of Citra at the end of the boil for late kettle addition flavor and aroma. Then we added 6 more pounds Citra and 5# Centennial post fermention for aroma. Rebrewed for your tasting pleasure!

Hoprider (426) - DENMARK - SEP 30, 2016
Pours an almost clear orange copper with about two fingers of white head. The nose is a 50/50 mix of citra hops and spicy caramel malt. Fairly sweet and flowery in the taste with a lingering malty finish and aftertaste. Sadly no bottling date on the can but I can tell this isn’t too fresh.

10 oz draft pours a hazy orange color with a nice white head. Aromas of citrus, pone, resin. Full bodied, yet nicely balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

De tirador al Ale&Hop. Cervesa color ambre transparent i cristalina amb bona escuma. Aromes de préssec madur, caramel i brioix. Cos mig, carbonatació mitja. No sembla que estigui fresca, una pena, pinta molt be!.

Zymurgeist2 (1854) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 9, 2016
Can to tulip. Pine and citrus rind aromas. Very slightly hazy orange with sustained white head. Flavor is bitter and moderately cloying. Too sweet for my taste and could have attenuated out some of the sugars. This hides the hop flavor - which is dank and citrus. I have always struggled with Citra beers that don’t blend many other hops with it and this is no exception.

BREWMUSKCLES (2558) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 5, 2016
great flavor of straight hop and then heavenly fruit punch of the light and tropical variety. smooth and frothy and at once with a little grain this is one of the best double ipa’s out there. actually creamy this is the good stuff from a bit of a bragadocio brewery.

Keg, Brewdog Leicester. Hazy golden with an off white foam. Juicy tropical fruit with woody, floral pine. Sweet brown sugar. Grassy and herbal with spices. Some background gooseberry. Bitter, pithy finish. Very good.

evergreen0199 (3020) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2016
Keg at Brewdog Shepherd’s Bush, London. A hazy golden/amber coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Hoppy, malty, caramel, tropical fruit on the nose. Tastes simialr, hoppy, malty, caramel, tropical fruit, hint of grapefruit. Really malty Imperial IPA and not so much Citra as the name suggests, this was a cracker, I wanted to drink it all evening.

travita (4852) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 28, 2016
Can. The look is cloudy, cashew colored head, and golden in color. The smell is fruit, hops, grass, dank, pine. The taste is about the same. Good beer.
