Really hazy golden color with off-white head. Aroma is quite dank, citrusy with herbal hop notes. Taste starts hoppy up-front, quite bitter with harsh hop notes. Herbal and dank hop profile with a red grapefruit flavor on the aftertaste. Medium to light bodied, medium to low carbonation. Overall it's a quite good IPA with harsh hops but I don't mind it.

I picked up a bomber of this "modern West Coast-style" IPA from Hi-Times in Newport Beach, CA on 02/12/2017. Brewed/bottled on 02/01/2017. APV 7.1%. Attractive yellow and black label. Citraholic pours a bright, hazy lemon-yellow with excellent carbonation. 3 fingers of white foam. Very nice lacing. Smell is decidedly citrus zest and pine. Tantalizing aroma. The taste starts with a blast of citrus lemon zest, followed by hops, hops and more hops ending with tropical fruit. Mild malt backbone perfectly compliments. Alcohol is well hidden. Lots of Citra hops here, along with Warrior, Columbus and Simcoe. The dry-hopped Citra really makes the difference. Awesome West Coast IPA! Tangy. Not heavy. Super refreshing. Kudos to Beachwood Brewing!

this beer is phenomenal, it pours a beautiful light golden Amber with a finger of bone white head, the aroma is of lemon drops, tropical fruit, weed/grass and lemon zest.... The taste is so complex for an ipa...the flavors start out wit sweet candied lemon, lemon zest and a nice dank/grass flavor, as the beer warmed up there were flavors of mango, Mellon, red grape fruit with a zesty bitterness on the finish......I highly recommend this beer.....grade A+beer

Love the hazy golden color to this beer. Not as hoppy as I thought but still a solid IPA. Nice subtle aroma not to heavy. Looking forward on trying more from them.

1/2/17 bomber poured about 40 degrees. Lives up to the citra-bomb moniker. Nicely pungent w/ pine & citrus rind on both the nose and tongue. Malt is downplayed, finishes with a nice dry & bitter flourish.

Perfectly balanced west coast IPA's like this only come from Russian River and Alpine (Not Green Flash). Consider these three brewers artists over brewers. Masters of their hop craft. Seek this beer out!

This one pours a very clear rusted orange color, with a small head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells like sunshine and honey- this is just packed to the gills with Citra hops. There's orange zest, grapefruit, pineapple, and mango, and a lot of it. There's some nice honey sweetness on the nose, too.

This is a really awesome expression of Citra. There's a wonderful candied fruit here, almost like pineapple, mango, and grapefruit covered with honey and sugar. There's very little malt character, just enough to prop it all up. There's some slight bitterness on the finish, enough to keep this from being too sweet. This is so easy to drink.

There's a light and soft body here, with a very crisp mouthfeel, and a normal level of carbonation.

This is absolutely outstanding- a near perfect expression of Citra.

Bottle date 1/2/17 consumed 1/6/17. Clear yellow near golden color with think head that recedes to a film, good lacing. Nose has a piney edge, slight alcohol. Biscuit malt well complimented by the citra that improves as it warms. Bitter finish with some fruit notes. Above medium body and carbonation.
