COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is not candy or mothers 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. Dont 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 Mittelfrh, 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!

chinchill (4829) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 25, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2017 16 oz can with the (overly long?) BB date stamp of 12-1-18. Pours hazy copper in color with a large,fluffy, durable off-white head. On and off its a bit too dank for me in the aroma or the flavor, but this is a very hoppy IPA with Citra and Centennial dominating the aroma and flavor profile. Smooth, medium+ body and medium+ carbonation.

fiulijn (20284) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 24, 2017
Draught at Darbys Gastown, Vancouver; 8% ABV; 16oz
Hazy amber color, creamy head. Malty body, not a modern IIPA, but not as chewy as the old ones; quite sweet; the hop has a strong orange character, moderately resiny, not even too strong; I dont perceive the dankness promised by the bar guru; traces of butter instead (some people may dislike that).
Solid, good, aging style.

stantheman (1015) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 21, 2017
On tap at Darbys Gastown in Vancouver. A dark amber beer with a beige head and a hopped and malted nose. Moderately hoppy, moderately fruity, big malt background. Nice. 4

Strykzone (7254) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2017
16 oz. can. Copper gold and hazy. An off white head. Aroma of citrus that translates to the flavor. Malts are pale. This is not complex but is very tasty.

AndyW68 (1533) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 9, 2017
Some good citra. Cloudy orange pour with white head. White head with orange tinge? Or maybe I am imagining that. Aroma is light citrus and pine. Taste follows nose. Not overwhelming, but wonderful balance. Very nice.

Koelschtrinker (19743) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - APR 30, 2017
Weich hopfiger Antrunk. Getreidiger, hell malziger Mittelteil, Grasnoten, geringe Herbe, trocken. Noten von Alkohol, wenn auch nur kurzzeitig. Okay. 10/10/9/9//9

jgb9348 (6101) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 27, 2017
Nice, very hazy copper and bronze glow with a thin, single centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of pungent and biting grassy and very herbal hops - doesnt smell like Citra to me, plus there is a big malt vibe and some sweetness noticeable as well. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and herbal flavours with some caramel and rich toffee notes, some lighter malts and a touch of pine at the end - no real citrus or citra notes to speak of, plus a very simple profile and a less than bitter note make this very passable. Aftertaste is fairly weak, with the malt and touch of hops around, with no real complexity or pungency. Overall, a decent beer at best, and another overblown Imperial IPA that is rated highly just because of their label. I sampled this pint (sixteen ounce) can purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 15-November-2016 for US$3,31 sampled at home in Washington on 26-April-2017.

HogTownHarry (6611) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2017
September 26, 2015 - at Craft (Islington) - keg draught. Brassy clear amber-gold with a bubbly average diminishing off-white head. Aroma is alcohol, tropical fruit, a little perfume/floral character, light cereal. Taste follows, with some resin/zest admixed. Solid body and carbonation, medium-long bitter finish, doesnt coat the palate, and the alcohol seems to build a bit as you work through it.
