Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: mrfrancis on 03-15-2012

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!

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Hazy amber color with a thin white head. Mild lacing on the glass.

Smell: Strong hops/citrus.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste of bitter upfront with subtle citrus sweetness.

Overall: Great brew. I would have this one again.

Good beer. Not worth 15 dollars a bomber though. That is more than 2 pseudo sues or 8 zombie dust, crazy. Plus for some reason the first half of the bottle was perfectly clear, the second was hazy.
