COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hopheads rejoice! Citraholic is a "modern" West Coast IPA that’s 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!

Zymurgeist2 (2179) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 21, 2017
Draught at Harry’s in Redwood City. Pours hazy light orange with large white head that fades to large soapy bubbles. Aroma is tropics and lemon. Faint sweetness in the back provides nice counterbalance. Taste is tropics with slight dank. Moderate high bitterness could be toned down a little.

SinH4 (4711) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - APR 30, 2017
Bottle, many thanks Max! Hazy golden color with white head. Aroma is citra hops, sweatsocks, petroleum, quite pungent. Taste is citra hops, pellet-style, sweatsocks, grassy. Medium carbonation, silky mouthfeel. Warming finish. Good, but a bit overdone.

anstei (2169) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 30, 2017
Bottle. Pours almost clear strong yellow. Aroma is strongly citric, light pine, minerals. Body is medium, strongly bitter, too little sweetness behind it. Still citric, but also sweaty socks, petroleum. Lively carbonation. Palate lingers on citrus. Good, but overly ambitious.

ciocanelu (2464) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 13, 2017
Really hazy golden color with off-white head. Aroma is quite dank, citrusy with herbal hop notes. Taste starts hoppy up-front, quite bitter with harsh hop notes. Herbal and dank hop profile with a red grapefruit flavor on the aftertaste. Medium to light bodied, medium to low carbonation. Overall it’s a quite good IPA with harsh hops but I don’t mind it.

jinroh (1533) - ESTONIA - APR 9, 2017
Pours orange and quite clear with only a few white bubbles on top. Aroma has a bit of skunk and overripe tropical fruits. Taste brings out more aspects of Citra with lemon zest and grapefruit peels. Body is relatively weak and you can feel mainly hops. Dry and tannin-rich finish. Great beer to get to know Citra better.

TimE (5793) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 31, 2017
Medium amber golden color. Very malty, sweet nose with some stone fruit. Malty sweet mouth with modest bitterness. Decent, but not mind blowing.

nuplastikk (6224) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 9, 2017
Tap at Beachwood. Unfiltered yellow-tan. Foamy white head. Big hop depth. Really well done. Not quite IIPA, but really full bodied. Classic. Great.

AdolfoCC (256) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - MAR 7, 2017
APARIENCIA: de color ámbar, se observa ligeramente turbia y una alta actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma color blanco, copiosa y de buena retención, con burbujas compactas y algunas abiertas al centro. AROMA: muy dulce y ligeramente cítrico así como frutal, algunas notas a melón, mandarina y naranja dulce predominan pero con poca intensidad, algo de moras y el dulzor de las maltas se percibe a la par. SABOR: dulce de inicio, algunas notas frutales y cítricas: melón, mandarina, naranja dulce y moras es lo que predomina inicialmente, que rápido pasa al sabor y dulzor de la malta, como pan; en el retrogusto queda un amargor medio bajo, con permanencia de algunas notas dulce y frutales. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo medio ligero con sensación oleosa en boca, mediana carbonatación.
