A local NJ favorite, River Horse Brewing Company has grown into one of the area premier craft breweries. I have had the pleasure of visiting this brewery on multiple occasions, and though I do miss the old location in the charming town of Lambertville, the new production facility allows for a better visit.
Citrus Maximus IPA is double dosed with Citra hops, by adding them in the boil, and again during the dry hop where they combine with Mosaic for a complex fruity aroma. They also used huge amounts of passion fruit and white grapefruit to create this super citrus, refreshing IPA.
Pour: Cloudy yellow orange.
Head: Nice, thick off-white head
Nose: A lot of citrus notes and grapefruit.
Palate: Very juicy on the palate. Big grapefruit flavor, with citrus notes.
Finish: Subtle hop notes finish out the experience to balance out the citrus flavors on the palate.
Overall: A very nice pour. Easy drinker with session level ABV. Worth picking up a four pack.
