Citra Ninja by Pipeworks Brewing Company
American Double / Imperial IPA
9.50 % ABV

When ninjas take a break from their battles with the mythical unicorn, they like truly embrace their inner hop head. This particular ninja has chosen to walk the path of the Citra hop. Absolutely loaded with Citra hops, this imperial IPA is brimming with juicy hop character from nose to palate. Enjoy a break from life's own battles with a Citra Ninja.

Batch 54
(Served in a Teku)

A- This beer pours a clear deep copper glow with a wall of microbubbles gliding to the surface and a sticky beige cream that that last and last.

S- The big juicy green hops have a bright citrus with a slight mint hint to them that comes through even during the pour.

T- The big juicy dry citrus hops flavor has some woody hop flavors to and a nice pineapple weed hop flavor in the finish. There is a gentle bitterness in the slightly dry finish and only a full pineapple weed pungency lingers. There is a soft slightly sweet pale malt flavor underneath that offers nice support.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a nice gentle fizz that boost the hops in the finish and no real alcohol heat is noticed.

O- This beer is a full hop bomb with only a slight bitterness and leans just a touch toward the dry side making it very drinkable and having a wonderful hop complexity. The depth seeps to grow as it opens up and it is very drinkable, especially for such a big beer.
