BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Melvin Brewing / Thai Me Up
Wyoming, United States
melvinbrewing.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
The great Citradamus predicts this IIPA will be one of your favorites. Citradamus is Melvin’s world class IIPA brewed with 100% Citra hops, pristine mountain water and northwest malt. Flavors of citrus (duh), pine and total dankness. Dry hopped with ludicrous amounts of Citra for that classic hoppiness that Melvin has become known for.

IBU: 76

Tasted in a Rastal Teku from a 12 fl oz can on August 3, 2018. Brewed and dry hopped with Citra hops. Notes of citrus fruit, pine and dank hops. Recommended.

-deep amber can pour with a some haze and thin tan cap. The aroma is sweet. The flavor is more like honey less like the Citra flavor I expected. This is tasty, but a bit hot.

12oz undated can from the source.

Golden-copper with a chill haze and a nice head. Citra hops aplenty in the nose. Juicy peach and orange juice. Medium bodied with a creamy, crisp mouthfeel. Juicy tropicals on the palate and some light balancing malt and bitterness. Finishes with ripe citrus and faintly sweet.

Probably my favorite Melvin that I was able to try in Wyoming.

Amazing beer and so glad to find it on the east coast. Having a can with lunch on a summer day sitting outside. Hard to beat that and I love the taste of this beer. I get the citrus and hops but doesn’t feel boozy at all to me. I don’t notice the alcohol which might be dangerous lol. Very smooth and perfect. Think I might have another!!

Very close to clear orange-gold beer with a coupla fingers of ivory head... Delivers what you'd expect - a big dry hopped Citra vehicle, with ample floral orange impressions with a dank shellac beneath... Medium-weight, kinda tacky, carbonation feels low, mild sweetness, moderate bitterness... About two months old with a 5/14/18 canning but tastes great - was probably even better fresher...

Canned on 5/18, consumed on 6/3 - poured from a 12oz can into my Bruery tulip.

Deep persimmon body with the clarity of old stained glass supports a half-hearted champagne cap. Fast running lacing; unspectacular retention; faint sticky legs.

Candied orange, and low skunk like cannabis notes in the nose - some floral and cotton candy notes as well.

Robust palate entry with heavy sweetness initially, giving way to an electric wave of herbaceous/minty bitterness followed by a punch of ugli fruit/tangelo in the expansive medium finish. Faint graininess from the base malt, and a bit of heat from the alcohol, but no real off notes. Improves a bit as it warms as some of the mango notes emerge.

Full bodied, not-quite-sticky, fairly warming, though I might prefer a bit more attenuation in this style.

Sort of a boozy, sloppy version of Kern's Citra, but still pretty tasty.
