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!

Vestergaard (838) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2015
Tap at Fermentoren. Pours a clear amber with a medium-small, white head. Aroma has hops, malty sweetness and some grass. Taste is pretty malty sweet, hoppy bitter and fruity. Balanced, but slightly boring, and the citra doesn’t really shine in this one. Oily full body and low carb.

On tap at The Birch, Norfolk, VA during the 43 Hours Of USA 2015. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Piney and grassy hop aroma. Bitter hop taste of grapefruit rind, apricot, and pineapple with an equally assertive malt backbone. Finish is bitter but it does not linger. A great DIPA.

Light amber color. Aroma is nicely citrus, making me expect lots of citrus hops flavor, but it’s not as "juicy" as I was hoping. Citrus rind, a little pine resin and a booze "bite" dominates the taste initially, then some sweetness comes in. Decently balanced, though the booze is a little too obvious for my tastes - just a tiny bit. It’s good, but not great. Bomber shared by a beer buddy.

Keg at Fermentoren, CPH, 30/04/15. Clear golden orange with a decent off white covering. Nose is bitter citric peel, caramel maltings, light spice, pine trace. Taste comprises earthy citric vibes, bitter orange, straw, light spice trail, pineapple, light grapefruit. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with earthy hop bitterness. Ok DIPA.

On tap @ Fermentoren copenhagen. Aroma has lots of citra hops, with weak bready notes and some tropical fruits - like mango, one apple, peach and orange. Very fresh and juicy aroma. The taste is hop-forward with some pine., some bread, citrusy fruits, citra-hops, tropical fruits and with some resin at the end. Nice!

Bottle. The pour is a lighter orange. The aroma is hoppy and full of citrus. The taste is rather mild for what I was expecting, not an overload of hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
