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!

Can from Merchants. Aroma is pine, tropical fruit sweetness, caramel malt, citrus, sticky, somewhat floral. Appearance is amber golden, light tan head, somewhat clear. Taste is caramel malt, malt bitterness, some sweet tropical fruit, some citrus, resounding pine coming in late, sticky, a malt forward bomb. Mouthfeel is medium body, sticky, light carbonation, malt bitter and citrus aftertaste. Overall, it's fine but there isn't much balance.

16 ounce can for $4.19. Leans malty, but plenty of hop contribution. Clear brass color. IMO, malt trumps citra hops.

The aroma is hops, citrus. Pours an orange/copper with white head mostly diminishing and excellent lacing. the taste is bitter. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish bitter. Very Good IIPA!!!!

Alpha10 (817) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2017
2017/08/23 - Pours a clear orange gold colour with a thin, soapy, white head that quickly reduces and leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is pine, bready notes, caramel, citrus (orange and grapefruit). Taste is sweet bread, caramel malt, pine, lemon, herbal notes and light alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with lightly biting carbonation and a long, bittersweet, mildly warming finish. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
