Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: RollTide7 on 05-26-2013

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! Gold medal winner for IPA in the 2013 VA Craft Brewers Festival and Competition.

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

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
