Notes/Commercial 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!

Honey golden colored body with a creamy off-white head. Good sticky lacing with nice head retention. Intense citrus, floral and hoppy nose. Pine resin, malt backbone and orange peel flavors and dry bitter hop finish. Excellent DIPA.

A - Pours a hazy pale amber body with somewhat bubbly off-white head. Decent retention and nice lacing.

S - Lots of nice citrus hop

T - Really nice dank hop bitterness, tangy citrus and grassy. Malts are low and earthy. This is certainly hop forward. Alcohol is well blended in and not very noticeable.

M - Medium body and moderate/high carbonation. Nice and sticky, definitely resinous.

O - This was really good. It hits all the key aspects I prefer in IPAs. Hops are forward and bitter with lots of citrus and fresh earthy notes. Malts are sublte and subdued. I'd definitely pick this up again, however I just realized I paid $14 for this now... Not sure I can throw down that much again. Put this at $8 max and I'll come back to it.
