Will review from my bottle since the presentation wasn't very good when poured at BWBBQ-LB. Pours a medium yellow color, sorta dull probably due to a slight haze from dry hop, but glad it's on the more yellow side. Great head formation which floats atop the beer like a thinner version of beaten egg whites. The first aroma that bursts forward is an earthy/dank thing. More of a green character than a citrus or berry. Flavor is a spicy/earthy/green hop flavor with lots of bitterness that feels resinous. Bitterness hits you very quickly and lingers longer than I can remember of any beers I've had in the last couple years. Great lacing left on my (clean) glass. Mouthfeel is thin, but not watery. For me it's close to perfect for a 7.1ABV beer. I think the hop resins are helping hold up the body. In terms of Citra-forward beers, this one closer to Toppling Goliath PseudoSue (more 'green' character) than a Kern River Citra (more Mango/fruits).

EDIT: As beer warms up you do get a citrus rind flavor but nothing of that sorts in the aroma

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy orange body. Nice white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Citrus. Orange. Grapefruit. Lightly toasted malt.

Taste - Grapefruit. A little musty. Cracker malt. Not very sweet. Mild grassy bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Kinda bitter. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Tasty IPA. As the name describes, it's citrusy.

Got rained out during my trip to Beachwood: closed on Mondays. Ok, a bottle from the local spot will have to do.

Smells like my baby mama when she comes home from Burke Williams - this thang is money. Taste is pretty solid, but kind of like said baby mama a few hours after coming home from the day spa - things are a bit toned down. That being said, this dang sucker still has plenty of citrus pep in its step.

Get on it my minions.

On tap at Beachwood BBQ – Long Beach, CA
05/02/2014 – Full Pint

Also recently had in bottle

A: Lightly burnished golden orange body. A splash of hop haze produces a nice glow in the glass when light struck. Has a finger width of bone white soapy suds on top that like to cling to the glass with every possible chance.

S: Ccccitra!!! Grapefruit, orange, pine, lemon-lime, and gooseberry on the nose. Super fruity and aromatic. Smells terribly fresh with some lightly clipped herbs on the trail end. Not much malt to be noted. Just all sugary sweet citrus.

T: Flavors bring a mass of citrus, mango, and orange with pink grapefruit. Some light tropical floras as well but not necessarily dank weed. Lots of mango here. Has a touch of green onion too with a distinctive gooseberry note. Light malt base of just some sugary resins and a wisp of caramel cream. Surprisingly mellow on the actual perceived bitterness. This one is about the balance. Alcohol is making an appearance but it’s fairly well incorporated. Very dry with a long lasting linger. Another great IPA from Beachwood. I found lots more gooseberry drinking this from the bottle. Both were great however.

M: Medium body leaning towards the lighter side of fullness. Even carb gives a nice lush feel in the mouth. Light bitterness with some sugary residues. Very dry in the finish with that long hoppy lasting linger.

D: Citraholic is a great IPA and its not even Beachwood’s best. Can’t really go wrong here with all the Citrus goodness. Nicely balanced and very refreshing. I think I may have enjoyed the bottle even more but perhaps because it was a bit more isolated. Anywho…a must try from them for sure.
