Citra Galactique IPA is a beer designed to showcase three of our favorite hops. They give the beer explosive tropical fruit and citrus aromatics which are complimented by the beer’s dry finish, firm bitterness and subtle malt background.

Picked up in Paris over the summer, bottled 6/12/18, best before 03/2019

Pours with a large head, lots of extra carbonation probably thanks to bottle conditioning, fluffy creamy head with decent retention, nice lacing, hazy honey orange color

Nose brings bright citrus, orange zest, lemon lemongrass, big grapefruit and tropical guava mango like, pink grapefruit juice, a little doughy malt

Taste brings typical pale ale flavors, lots of blond toasted malts, a little sweetness, nice malty flavor to balance the quickly intensifying bitterness, ramps up to a nice strong bitterness overall, hops bring a little citrus, more grapefruit, some pith, rind, a bit spicy later, finish dries a bit and long bitterness lingering

Mouth is med bod, nice fizzy carb

Overall not bad, def old school American IPA with nice malt profile, good bitterness, nice balance as well, hops came out great on the nose but dropped a bit on the taste but probably would have been stronger if I had it in the summer.

Balanced beer. The bitterness is a bit strange, medicinal. So I'll say bitter orange, and an effervescent drug mouthfeel. The hops are alright but the malts could be more present

It seems fair to say that those who claim the French can't make good beers (except for 3 Monts, Pelforth brune and Mont des cats) are wrong. A fairly good American style IPA, les brasseurs du grand Paris is a brewery that deserve more recognition. Sadly, I don't think you find this in America. Santé !

Aroma is really fresh, fruity and piney. Taste starts with sweet citrus fruits but finishes with bitter resinous, flavors. Medium to light body with crisp carbonation. Really fresh, hoppy and easy to drink.

One of the better Amican IPAs made in Europe that I have tasted. That doesnt say much at all unfortunately. Light malt/caramel but still there, could be even more focused on hops with less crystal. Gives some sweetness and competes with aromatic hips, but this bottle is just over two months (? BB 7.21.16?), so may just be fading a bit.

Bought at la Cave à Bulles. This is the third IPA from these guys that I am trying and I like how the Citra hop works here. Nice fruity nose and plesant mouthfeel. More on the lighter side of IPA if we take the American standard. When I asked for a more hopped up brew from this brewery and was directed towards Nice to Meet You.
