Beachwood Citraholic vs Noble Citra Showers | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

Citra Showers: Citra is our first choice for our new Double IPA series that showcases our favorite hop varieties, one by one, with each consecutive release. This hop bursts with juicy layers of mango, lemongrass, and grapefruit. Look forward to many upcoming releases within this series of single hopped Double IPAs. Citraholic: Hopheads rejoice! Citraholic is a “modern” West Coast IPA that’s focused on Citra, one of our favorite new American hop varieties. Brewed with an abundance of Citra hops, we also blend in Warrior, Columbus, and Simcoe in the kettle for good measure. Citraholic is double dry hopped for two weeks with an abundance of Citra (and a touch of Columbus) imparting heavy aromas of citrus & tropical fruits with melon and gooseberry nuances.

Drakes Aroma Prieta | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

Shake out from Aroma Coma with Aroma Prieta. Aroma Coma’s sister beer mirrors its twin starting with primarily American 2-row barley malt. and a touch of Caramalt for body. From there, we turn things upside down. This time, Prieta leaves behind Aroma Coma’s North American hops for some Southern Hemisphere hop action. New Zealand hops Nelson Sauvin, Pacific Jade, and Motueka and Aussie hop Helga in the double dry-hop give Aroma Prieta huge notes of tropical fruit, gooseberries, and grapefruit. Like Aroma Coma but different: breathe in these hops and enjoy. Read More »

Ivan made a cask he called Pineapple Colada IPA. I could not believe how great it was. So Troy came up with a commercial recipe and brewed it. i thought, “Wow!” Lets call this the “Aloha Beaver” and we came up with this cool Hawaiian label.

ABV: 6.6% – Read More »
