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!

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with some stupid white head. Aroma is citrusy, really pleasant. Taste is citrus, mango, orange, pineapple, explosive hops really. Good beer, expensive for 22oz. Would drink on tap if it were cheaper per oz. Note: this stuff has been rotting on shelves around me. Sad, but its expensive.

Tall boy can from TRT. Poured a slightly hazed gold with a large frothy white head. Aroma starts off with some sugary sweetness joined by fermenting citrus fruit notes. The sweerness fades a touch but remains throughout. Flavor is sweet at firsr, but not as sweet as the aroma, followed by pink grapefruit, rotting tangerine, citrus rind. Full body, sticky mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Thought I’d be blown away but left like I just watched a Will Smitj movie, disappointed.

Bartzilla (574) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 27, 2015
There’s no mistaking this is a DIPA. Giant hop blasts with the sweet, resinous backbone. The 8.2% heat is noticeable, but welcomed as it just adds to the allure. Not a long distance ale, but a tasty one, at that. For sprints, not marathons.

Golden pour with big creamy off-white head. strong piney nose with undertones of citrus and caramel malts. Light-medium body. bitter resiny finish. very nice bitter DIPA and love the label design as well.

16oz can. Pours a clear bright yellow gold, thin white head. Aroma is fresh citrus, pine, sugary syrup, grapefruit, sweet malt. Flavor is syrupy hop juice, citrus and grapefruit, heavy bread, sweet malt. Fairly thick and syrupy beer, but solid.

Can. Aroma is candied citrus, caramel and light tropical fruit. Tastes solid. A little on the sweet side. Big candied citrus and tropical fruit. Not much else. Could use a little bitterness for balance but still pretty good.

Pour is a bright orange with a small white head. Aroma is a definite fruitier hop variety. Flavor is surprisingly a heavy dose of caramel malt with a mild sweetness. Hops come in again as a fruit like a ripe grapefruit. Finish is heavy and sticky with the malt. Decent beer with a heavy malt bill which I’m not really fond of in IPA’s. The hops are still here but not as big as I thought they would be. Also nice that this was in a single can as this brewers bottles are expensive.
