Against the Grain Brewery's Citra Ass Down Double IPA
Citra Ass Down will definitely make your Sityourassdown and enjoy this beer. Against the Grain does an excellent job utilizing citrus hops in this malt-forward DIPA.
Pouring golden in color with a prominent off-white head, this beer provided aromas of malty sweetness and light notes of citrus rind. On the palate, the beer was rather malt forward, manifesting flavors of toasted bread and hints of caramel and toffee. Mid-taste though, the Citra hops come to the rescue with a bitterness that really balances out the beer. The hops provide a pleasant grassiness and oilyness, reminiscent of citrus rind.
