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!

Bottle shared by Eric, summer 2014. Nice golden pour, good off-white head, nice lacing. Awesome aroma, pungent Citra, tons of citrus, some pineapple, tropical fruit, some pine and more citrus. Good flavor, tons of hop character, tropical fruits, some doughiness coming through, a hint at caramel, lingers dry, some pine and citrus. Tasty stuff!

Oh my god, this beer is so bad I have to go review it right now. This is what I said after taking my first sip upstairs. There’s a Mario Kart game being interrupted by this. Here’s my second sip: there was a little something good in there somewhere I think. This is nasty. I bought the bottle at Binny’s a couple days ago and put in in the fridge. Did I get a bad bottle? Horrible horrible finish. It just sits with you and makes you cringe. My genius wife points out that it does have the word "ass" right on the bottle. This one was a dumper.

Hazy golden straw. Nose is pungent tropical hops with a bit of floral accents. Flavor is gentle floral/nectary, pronounced mango, moderate grapefruit, and a supporting toasty/biscuity malt backbone. Really impressive...possibly my favorite dipa i’ve had outside of the west coast. Only problem is the INSANE price I paid, however I don’t know if it is equally expensive everywhere, so that may not even be a valid criticism.

Nice aroma. Pours a hazy light orange. Nice citrus flavors but lacked some of the malty backbone I prefer in a double IPA - perhaps due to the use of pale and wheat malt. I would drink it again but perhaps somewhere down the road.

very solid showing... mellow mix of hops and malt....not as grapefruity as most double ipas...
