COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hopheads rejoice! Citraholic is a "modern" West Coast IPA thatís focused on Citra, one of our favorite new American hop varieties. Brewed with an abundance of Citra hops, we also blend in Warrior, Columbus, and Simcoe in the kettle for good measure. Citraholic is double dry hopped for two weeks with an abundance of Citra (and a touch of Columbus) imparting heavy aromas of citrus & tropical fruits with melon and gooseberry nuances. A base of American 2-row malt and scatterings of light British caramel malt create the perfect foundation for this unique and powerfully pungent IPA. You asked for it and we were happy to deliver!

Just as good as many other great ipaís that showcase the citra hop. Very citrus and tropical but with an odd finish. Very enjoyable nonetheless.

Draught @ Festival of Dankness, San Diego. Aroma has sweet fruity notes and pineapples. Flavour has gluey tones, cereal, some tropical fruits and hibts of pineapples. A bit too gluey, especially in the finish.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2015 I love my Citra, and buddy, you had me at dry hopped. Double dry hopped is only going to make me overheated and needy. I canít wait... Cracking the beer is an explosion of fruit, earthy sourdough, and well, fruit. Add in some more fruit, and youíve got the idea. A blend of bright citrus and berries creates a wonderful anticipation, and I feel a wash over my tongue...reactionary and welcome. The apricot-hued brew is light in color and the foam capping it is off-white, soft and moderately dense. I pull the first mouthful in over my lips and find the taste immediately biting my tongue; the tip, the sides, forcing itís way to my throat but slipping past so quickly it barely leaves a trace of itself behind. The bitterness is bracing, making you stand at attention like youíve been touched by a cold winter breeze after an hour in the jacuzzi, a clean shot of the aroma cutting through it and keeping a lid on the possibility of discomfort. The head is only a trace now; a thin layer of cloud thatís left some of itself as a wispy trail of wet lace on the glass. The medium body is slightly thick; the provocative flavor carried forward on a carbonation that isnít entirely ambitious, but certainly isnít holding back either. Bitter, a bit of a long finish, a stimulating aroma, and a damn tasty flavor would keep me coming back for this one...and if you know anything about me, you know that thereís always time for just one more. Right?

Bottle. Hazy golden orange pour with a small head that fades to a messy film and ring. Citra hop heavy aroma of dank and juicy tropical and citrus fruit. Pineapple, kiwi, grapefruit, oranges, melon, light pine, light flowers, and a dank coating over all of it. Taste has a pretty strong dank hop oil flavor that can be a tad harsh on some sips but still very good. Great tropical fruit and citrus punch. A touch of pine in the finish. Medium body. Mouthfeel is creamy but sorta oily and slick too. Great stuff.
