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.

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

batch #4 on tap at Mekong. snifter.

pours a solid golden copper with a half inch head, amazing lacing. the smell is extremely fruity and hoppy. very balanced. the taste is so balanced between hops and malts, its a sculpin clone EXACTLY. if you were to give this to me blind and say it was a sculpin I'd believe you. perfect body.

amazing IPA. one of the best east coast ipas I've ever had.

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.
