It's both. Break material (protein) and hops resins. Coagulated together in glorious little chunks of tasty goodness.

after reading this whole thread, i really want to try some of this beer.

if anyone up there is willing to/wants to trade please send me a PM.

Im in CT, so i can offer things like new england brewing comp, sixpoint, and others but i dont know whats down here that isnt up there.

anyways, just asking, not trying to derail the attempts to make a clone

I second the road trip idea and also would like to include a part where you buy a few cases and ship them to all of us contributing here. Not for free of course.

I would be very interested in trying this beer if anyone could get me a 4-pack.

There is something about it, from the look of the can, to the buzz that I'm reading, that makes me more excited than usual to try to get some.

The only can I've had came to me by the graces of Airborneguy. Considering he doesn't live anywhere near the distribution zone it was a true sacrifice. I would love to get some more in the future. I've got a lead. I'm hoping the quality stays the when they expand.

Soon we will all have the clone recipe and be able to brew it fresher in our own homes and won't need Heady anymore.

You will have to secure one for me, then!

I am dying to try this beer, more than any other. Two Hearted and Zombie Dust probably round out my top 3.

Less than 8 hours! I'm considering driving 13 if I can't get some Citra DIPA soon.

I'm actually an hour north of Toronto now, so make that 9

I might have possibly gone had I decided to go to NHC this year. I was going to, but after hearing it's in Grand Rapids next year I decided I could wait another year!

A nearby brewery (~30 minutes further north, really the only great or even good brewery in the entire province) makes a pretty good all-citra IPA. They're only a few years old, but I still haven't gone to the actual brewery yet. Maybe I should...
