4.15/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Picked up a filled to the brim 64 oz growler of this yesterday, 4/28/12.

A: Crystal clear golden hued IPA. Smallish off-white head that leaves a trace of lacing in the pint glass as the liquid goes down the gullet.

S: Citra-centric aromas, i.e. heavy citrus and mango with some coniferous wafts mixed in.

T: Uniquely hoppy flavors begin their assault on the palate. The bitterness is somewhat offset by the malt backbone. A pleasure to quaff...slowly.

M: This is where Citraholic really excels: it finishes smooth and clean and the carbonation is perfect, less than 24 hours (or 1440 minutes as stated on the growler) after filled. On the website, it says it's double dry-hopped. You can tell.

O: I've tried the Melrose IPA and that was a more classic West Coast-style IPA. While I personally preferred that, Citraholic is unique, and a pleasure to quaff and savor. This IPA is a tribute to the diversity and beauty of hops.

Beachwood BBQ makes amazing beers, has the best of guest beer and pub food that puts other places to shame. If you live in Long Beach or Seal Beach: Congratulations!
