Review: Galactic Centennial Citra Imperial Red Ale

Galactic Centennial Citra Imperial Red Ale

Nice deep amber to red. Head was giant with the caramelly malts, and carried a slight reddish tint to it. The lacing is fantastic and as I drink the beer it looks wonderful in the glass.


Hop forward as intended. It really smelled of straight forward hops. Could have used the dry hopping I put in the wrong beer though.

Bitter, sweet, hoppy. The hops were really really stronger than intended I think because of the lower boil volume. It was quite bitter throughout. The sweetness from the beer was there but was just assaulted by the bitterness of the hops.


Silky and imperial. The bitterness is coating and the beer is sticky it hangs around on the tongue.

Not Bad for a comedy of errors as far as brewing goes. On the college grading scale I'd label this as incomplete, I don't know what my red will taste like so I have to reserve judgement until I can compare. I like this beer as an imperial though, it packs a punch.
