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!

nimbleprop (4987) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 25, 2014
22oz bottle picked up in the Franklin’s General Store pours a hazy bright orange with some lacing, white head. Right out the bottle, the nose had a conspicuous amount of thyme. Thankfully, that fades and then you’re hit with fresh honey comb, a little bit of candy, lemon, grapefruit, soap, some dried grass. Flavor is sweet and bitter, honey, lemon, orange, juicy, grassy, pine too, some mild malt. Full bodied, bitter finish.

Bottle from Berkeley Bowl West. Pours golden with a gransient off-white head and a floral citrus aroma. There is a medium-bodied caramel malt flavor with a huge citra finish. This is a very tasty brew that resembles West Coast IPA style.

Pours cloudy orange straw, with a thin off-white head. Aroma is hops, pine, and grapefruit. Taste is juicy grapefruit, candy, and some other fruity esters. Mouth feel is slightly oily, slightly watery, but pulling a big sip gives an amazing burst of body. The finish is pleasantly bitter.
