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!

Big citrusy tropical fruit nose from the hops over a solid malt backbone.
Pours hazy gold under a somewhat thin bone-white foam cap.
Following a sweet malt introduction citrus hops dominate the palate with citrus rind bitterness balanced by tropical fruit and melon. Dries on the finish and finishes with a long lingering citrusy bitterness.
Very smooth creamy medium full body supported by fine soft carbonation.

Pours a medium golden color with a white head and some sediment. White head and some lace on the pint. The aroma has intense piney citrus, it has the full on presence of the Citra hop. In the taste, grapefruit pith, pine, and earthy bitterness with a wildflower honey like sweetness. Still bitter, with a high alpha hop acidity. Light bodied and solid carbonation. Overall, extremely drinkable, deceptively strong, well crafted IPA.

It was not 8.00 abv according to the chalkboard. It was 6.7% or something like that (doing this from memory the next day). It has a terrific citrus smell and tastes very good, following the nose.
