2018 Advent Beer Review
Date: Dec 8, 2018
Beer: Railtown Brewing - Citra Warrior DIPA
Style: Double IPA
Source: Dutton, MI
ABV: 9.3% Crystal Peacock
Today is the 11th and I'm two days behind on my reviews. I had a
minor cold this weekend (sore throat, runny nose, etc.) and I was
unable to think about beer without getting nauseous. Now it's
Monday and I'm on the mends with three unopened beers in the fridge
and some catching up to do! my plan is to continue in order and make
up the missed days by doing two-a-day sometime in the future.
This beer is from a brewery about 10 minutes from my house that I've
never heard of before. It looks like it was on draft at the Craft
Beer Cellar and they decided to can it and include it in the advent
box. It drinks like a standard west coast double IPA. Very hoppy and
thick flavor. There might be some citrus flavor present, but I'm
still a bit congested from the cold I'm not tasting very much.
Decent overall, but I don't think there's anything here that sets it
apart from every other double IPA on the shelf.
- Would I buy it again? Probably not.
- How much could I drink in one night? Given it's a very heavy IPA,
probably only a pint.
