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!

Honey golden colored body with a creamy off-white head. Good sticky lacing with nice head retention. Intense citrus, floral and hoppy nose. Pine resin, malt backbone and orange peel flavors and dry bitter hop finish. Excellent DIPA.

ferit (130) - Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2014
Een heerlijk frisse IPA. Een van de weinige IPA’s die ik lekker vind. Niet te bittere nasmaak. Een beetje zoet maar toch heel erg fris. Niet zwaar. In de zomer als het warm is zou ik hier liters van kunnen drinken. Heel gevaarlijk dus. citrus, floral,

demmbonz (521) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Shared bomber to pilsner glasses. Golden yellow with some sediment towards the bottom of the pour. Aroma of citrusy grapefruit. Clearly not just juicy citra hops. Some bite from the other additions. Still very juicy with a bitter finish.

Huge grapefruit on the nose. Taste has some hints of tangerines with a bitter start, some sweetness on the finish, and a tart lingering on the palate.

italianjohn (2314) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Hazy orange and yellow pour with a soft white head and very light sticky lacing .... Aroma of oranges, grapefruity, citra hops, piney and a nice spicy floral bite as well .... Taste is rindy and of grapefruits, oranges, piney hops, dry and bitter citrusy hops on the back end with some caramel malt in there and a floral bite .... Decent Ibus in this one... Had a bitter dry citrusy rindy finish that lingers for a bit .... Abv hidden well decent offering

DocJitsu (907) - Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Pours a moderately murky golden color with a white, greenish hued head. The aggressive aromatic hop profile is eviden in the nose. Lightly oily mouthfeel. Perfect malt backbone without expressing itself. The hop character is given free reign over this beer. Orange, peach, and pine.

TXBadger (1345) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Pours a hazy bright golden color with white head. Citrus, pine, floral notes, and some hop resin on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more citrus and just a hint of bread.

kaser (2624) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Grapefruit and orange aromas. Pretty big beer but smooth and fruity. Thick orange clear pour with little head. Draft at hop leaf. Bitter hoppy heaven. 'West coast' style I think
