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.

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.


Interesting.

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!

Citraquench'l is a long-time whale. I bought two packs today in Durham, NC. canned on 7/1/2021. Poured into a pint glass. It pours an opaque, tangerine color with a half finger of foamy, milk-white head and thick, soapy lacing. Its smell features bright lemon, lime, grapefruit, tangerine, and some delightful, floral notes. Wow, the taste is something else! The Citra offers huge, sweet citrus: lemon, lime, orange, pineapple, and ripe honeydew melon. It just pops. It's amazing that all this flavor comes from a single hop. The mouth feel is moderately creamy with near perfect carbonation, and at 7.1% ABV it's readily drinkable. Overall, Citraquench'l is everything it purports to be and more! It's absolutely delicious. One of the best New England IPAs I've had the pleasure to drink. Just terrific!

Juicy, heavy, bold hazy citrusy/tropical IPA. Super enjoyable and bold.

Very good! Random choice at Doffers in Belmont NC. Tasty hazy hoppy brew. Heist doing good brews. Update! At Heist. Citraquench’l on draft so good. Need to upgrade my rating!
