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!

Good stuff. Thanks the Kettles & Grains (Leesburg, VA) for the recommendation.

Big and chewy. This the best way I can describe this one. It was like a Belgium white ale with hops and gusto. A big malty beer that deserves to be sipped

Nice enough IPA... Worth the $15 per bottle that I paid for it? Hardly... Nothing about this beer screams world class to me and for this price point it better... It's not bad by any means but there's nothing here that would make me go out spend this sort of money twice... Bitter and pungent for sure but there is something missing here.. Seems very one dimensional to me... I think the price is the bigvturn off for me... Quite expensive for what it is....
