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!

Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Fruity and juicy citrus, moderate bitterness, light malty sweetness, some tropical fruity notes, and a clean hoppy citric finish. Bright and drinkable.

mansquito (3384) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 12, 2014
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is citrus hops, and there be many of those. Taste is fruity, but not excessively bitter. Very nice fruity tastes though. This is very manageable for a double IPA, but it still retains the intense flavor profile.

Draft ar Moriartys. Hazy orange amber pour with soft white foam. Huge flavor of bitter unripe oranges. Mango sap. Green banana peels. Fruity, woody and lots of floral citrus resins. Dry finish. Good stuff but feels a bit overly harsh. I appreciated it but not sure I enjoyed it.

Wow chocolate. Smooth. Full-bodied. Sneaks up on you. It's great! Dessert beer. I'm drinking the whole bottle alone beer. I'm watching saving private Ryan and the movie is only helping elevate this beer! It is so tasty! Great mouth feel. Great lacing. But when I read lacing I think of women's underwear. It's brown and chocolate and chewy. Wondrous. Burnt sienna crayon. In a bottle. Exhale brown. Bouquet of brown aroma. Rename it chocolate bar chewy. Or Star Wars chewy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

boxofrane (2108) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle from Pinnochio’s ($19.50). Pours hazy orange with a small white head that dissipates to a white film and a few bubbles. The aroma is hugely fruity. Plenty of mango, peach, bit of orange juice. The taste has an assertive bitterness of short duration. There is a backbone of tropical fruit but the bitterness is really in the forefront. Each drink extends the residual bitterness. Nice!

Paincane (156) - Georgia, USA - AUG 22, 2014
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 (132) - 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 (527) - 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.
