Pours the color of grade A maple syrup, 1 finger of soapy white head dissipates within a minute or two, spotty lacing in the Fiddlehead tulip.

Aroma is of a classic Citra bomb: nice tropical fruit goodness, a touch floral, the malt plays a supporting role in the backdrop.

Starts out bright and bouncy with the juicy citrus flavors, then reduces to a slightly bitter oily aftertaste which is meant to be washed away with another quaff of the juicy blast, on and on.

Somewhat lower level of carbonation gives it a lighter mouthfeel, easy drinking.

Solid offering, especially for those who favor the qualities of the Citra hop, definitely recommend this one.

Citra Mania released today at the Town Hall Brewery. This is a single hop ipa. If you can't guess the hop hit the call button so Tommy can come on back and hit you with a tack hammer because you are a retard.
A-a filtered ipa this beer is dark golden and clear served with a finger of dense pure white head that recedes quickly leaving a nice lacing.
S-nice citra dankness. Also notes of tropical fruits, mangoish with hints of wet pine tree. I guess there is malt here but the hops win this battle royal.
T-shit, a bit of a letdown as it starts off nice and citra-ish but the bitterness takes over and pummels your fat ass into submission. Malt is fine.
M-upfront nice with a touch of smooth creamy mouthfeel but that it taken over by a resiny oily hop kick in the teeth.
O-aptly named this beer is going to run wild on you! This one and last fall's wet hopped citra have been more bitter than I like my citra forward beers. Still tasty but the bitterness and the long finish limits this to a 12 session brew.

Off the charts tasty, both nitro and CO2. Hoops at his best. Needs to be a more frequently brewed beer!
