Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Imperial IPA hopped with so many, really just so many, pounds of Citra hops is one of our favorites to brew, mostly because it's one of our favorites to drink. Cheers! Drink early and often.

Outsatanding Imperial IPA. I've had several great beers from Pipeworks and I'd have to say this is the best. All of their IPA's are definitely worth seeking out. Ultra smooth hoppiness and complexity. Absolutely as good as it gets !

This is a TASSSTY beer!

Citra (no longer w/ Ninja) is basically the brew Pipeworks hangs their hat on. And thur should be damn proud! When I see this, I rip it from the shelf like a Wal-Mart shopper grabs TV's on Black Friday.

The smell is perfect.

Appearance is perfect.

Mouthfeel perfect.

Taste is perfect.

I believe this is the second beer I've given a score of 5's across the board.

Pipeworks is constantly producing really unique, great tasting beers. I'm lucky enough to live just a few minutes from the brewery, so I get to try everything they release. Almost all of them are "TITS" but Citra, in my opinion, is in a class of its own.

I see the "wants" to "got" ratio here at BA...good luck WANTS...you won't be disappointed- enjoy!

Pours a gorgeous golden orange. Scent is explosive, with pine, pine, pine, and a bit of citrus. Texture is dense and (in a good way) oily, Taste echoes the scent. Despite the high ABV, I tasted no alcohol. Man, I'm embarrassed how I chugged this. This is a preposterously good beer.
