BEER INFO

Notes / Commercial Description:
Brewed exclusively with Citra hops, this IPA has a tropical, citrusy, even grapefruit aroma and taste. Deadly smooth. Perfectly balanced between bitterness and sweetness; even those not fond of hops have come to love this one. One sip and you'll want to Citra Ass Down for another!

32oz draft at the brewpub.

A - Is what it is. Good head, hazy copper color.

S - Smelled it as soon as she set it down on the bar, awesome nose. Tropical fruits.

T - Amazing tropical fruit tastes, like I've never had in an IPA before. Truly awesome.

M - Great carbonation. No sugary or thick aftertaste.

O - Awesome beer. Hopefully the new brew master will continue with brews of this great quality.

My go-to beer when I come to Extra Billy's. Solid appearance as a golden yellow and orange clear pint with fantastic lacing of slightly off-white foam. Nose is big piney which preps the tongue for more of the same with a nice resiny pine taste that leaves just a hint of sweetness on the back off the tongue. Not overly dry but not so animated as to be over- carbonated or cloying on the finish. Probably "just right". Great beer and should be a Midlothian landmark.

Draft. Pours a pale yellow with a finger or two of fluffy white head. Cloudy. Smells of citrus hops and grapefruit . Tastes like a traditional ipa. Little bitter but not bite your face off pine tree bitter. Just right. Could drink a lot of this on a hot summer day. Definitely taste slightly sour fruit that's competing with the citrus hops. Guessing grapefruit. Finishes clean. Solid effort. Highly recommend.

Had at mekong in Richmond. Citra IPA. Appearance-wise the beer could look better. Color is a cloudy liggt amber. Smell is delicious and very tropical with pineapple and mango. Beer has nice hop bitterness but tropical notes also shine through. A nice balanced IPA with good flavor but not overly bitter.

Appearance: Arrives with a clear copper color capped by an inch of foam that leave sheets of lacing

Smell: Floral, with tropical fruit and citrus tones

Taste: A touch of the biscuit, up front, with building tropical fruit (pineapple, primarily) and tangerine tones; a bit of residual sweetness in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; somewhat crisp

Overall: I was interested in giving this out of the way IPA a try to see whether it was the real deal - it is
