Notes: Sometimes listed as Citra-Quench!-Al or Citraquintial

IPA brewed with Citra. Flooded with the unmistakeable aroma and flavor of Citra hops. Big tropical fruit accompanied by a smooth, dry finish. Hazy on purpose, delicious by intent.

Juicy looking pour. The color seems a bit lighter golden. It really looks like a glass of pineapple juice, but with a very frothy and fluffy 2 finger white head. The beer has great head retention, and there's a good amount of lacing on the glass.
To be honest, I'm not getting much on the nose. It's a fairly faint citrus hop aroma.
Taste - There's a citrus flavor to this beer due to the hops, and I think it's tangerine that I'm getting from the hops. The flavor from the hops really keeps building in my throat, and on my taste buds. The flavor lingers in my throat, and I just keep tasting it.
The body is juicy and also has a crisp feeling. The hops linger in my throat, but they don't feel sticky, or like resin.
This is a delicious example of the style. The aroma was a bit of a let down, it is a bit over a month old, so maybe that plays a factor into it. That being said, the flavor is there.

Had on tap at the Bass Lake Draft House in Holly Springs, NC.

This was a tasty hazy IPA. Not a great amount of head, but the hazy appearance and color were good for the style. Dank, citrus fruit aromas were the outstanding aspect of this beer, with the taste almost as good. Worth trying if you get the chance.

Neon yellow hazy body with a white head and decent lacing. Big citra nose, pushes the citrus notes of lime and grapefruit far. Taste is much the same, decent bitters, but the middle is lighter in flavor, holding this back from meeting the hype. Feel is bright, light, refreshing with good hop cutting the body, lacks lush and full nature of the top hazy ipas but higher bitterness helps the finish. A good neipa, but no way is it the 46th best neipa in the world

Can to snifter.

Citrus nose. Grapefruit. Tangerine. Melon. Black pepper.

Pine taste. Some tangerine in finish.


Changing flavors and palates as it goes. A touch more juicy as it warms; also the aroma picks up more of the pepper and pine throughout.

Poor mans Julius.

Was really excited to try the allegedly best IPA from NC. Not a bad IPA at all, however it has a hefty price tag and I would rate this Resident Culture Pleasant Dank 8% above this Hiest beer. It just really didn't punch me in the mouth with flavor the way i thought it would.

Picked up a four-pack at TW-Greenville SC on 9-8-21 for $21.99. Canned 7-29-21; consumed can #1 10-12-21. Cold stored since purchase.

Beer poured a hazy golden orange with a very nice white head with the original pour.

Nose is very nice as the citrus and tropical fruits are front and center.

Taste is spot on as the moderate sized pale malt base takes on a solid dose of orange, lemon, and mango wonderfully. Finishes with a nice rind bitterness; 6/10 on my scale.

Mouthfeel is light bodied and very refreshing.

Overall a very nice NEIPA, full of flavor and refreshing!
