COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Pacific North West of America is home to the Citra hop. America is not just about cheer leaders, a silly version of football, elastic top jeans and cheeseburgers. They grow remarkable hops and Citra is a killer example of this, embodying all that is good about American hops and then some. A relatively new hop on the block, it may even seduce you into thinking the American Dream is not just a catch phrase to sell movies and elect Presidents. Fearfully hard to resist, this beer is loaded with brash citrus, grapefruit orange, hints of resinous pine and touches of black currant. Devilishly moreish. I am a little bit too obsessed with this beer for my own good.

jonnyguns (909) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 27, 2014
Bottle from mane liquor. Had this one a while back forgot to rate. Nice orange pour with a frothy white head. Nose has loads of grapefruit and orange peel - citra hop specialty! Taste is a fruit bowl backed by a dry sweet malt bitterness. Pretty good ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

txolo (154) - SPAIN - DEC 28, 2013
Cerveza muy herbal, huele a plantas del jardín, de sabor más dulce que amargo, no es extrema y sin embargo deja huella por su delicadeza, una IPA que funciona fenomenal
