A very nice and fairly easy to down beer, but with enough complexity to entertain. Definite signs of the citra hops, with lemony notes and some nice pine-like aromas too. Very nice mouthfeel.

Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant "Citra IPA"
16 fl. oz. can

Notes: Fairly clear golden body teeming with fine bubbles beneath a short but creamy head of white. Better than average head retention but only average lacing. The aroma is citrusy with lemon and orange, and somewhat tropical with peach and mango. There are also some hints of grapefruit and some light grassiness. The flavor follows and it's refreshing and fruity with a median carbonation that leads to a dry, citrusy finish. Medium to medium-light in body and fairly crisp. Very nicely done, and a good representation of what Citra hops deliver.

on tap at iron hill west chester this afternoon.

looks pretty good in the glass, somewhat hazy deep yellow body,, nice bright white head which persists leaving nice lacing.

some citrus hops aroma

tastes pretty good too, a decent bite from the hops, nice fruity wash, pleasing malt background.

the feel is somehow a little dead. about medium on the mouth, citrus hops on the finish.

overall, very drinkable, sessionable ipa. feel a bit of a letdown, but overall, certainly an above average drink.

16oz pint, 5.8%
Enjoyed on 7/13/12 at Wilmington Iron Hill

A: Pours out a bright yellowish orange color. About a quarter finger of bright white head. Leaves some lacing bits. No real pronounced alcohol feet.

S: I get a good amount of tropical fruit from the Citra hops. Pineapple, mango, etc. Very low malt bill here.

T: On the tip of the tongue I get that nice Citra bitterness. Lots of fruit forward hops. When the malts kick in, they blend nicely (caramel malt and crystal I assume) to sort of balance it but leave it more hop forward. Nice bitter dry finish.

M: A lighter medium. It's actually like some of the stronger pale ales out there now.

Had on tap at Brews by the Bay

A: The beer is a hazy orange with a small white head on top. Moderate retention and lacing.

S: Great aroma of tropical fruits, some pineapple, grapefruit, and other citrus fruits. Very inviting.

T: Similar to the aroma, gotta love citra hops. More tropical and citrus fruits, pineapple, grapefruit, a little orange zest.

M: Medium bodied with good carbonation. Easy drinking.

O: Probably the best beer at the festival, wouldn't expect anything less from Iron Hill.

Picked this off the special/seasonal menu on 7/6/12 at the Wilmington, DE location.

Orange/deep yellow with thin white head. Smells like citra hops, tropical fruits and juicy sweetness. Tastes sweet and juicy. Carbonation is a bit lower than anticipated, but overall a solid IPA. Would order again.
