Obsession is defined as the "compulsive preoccupation with a fixed idea or an unwanted feeling or emotion, often accompanied by symptoms of anxiety." As the reigning darling hop of the brewing industry, Citra is oftent the object of brewers’ obsession and affection. We lucked into a bunch of it, and decided to showcase its myriad tropical fruit flavors in a package meant for easy and exuberant consumption.

Braudog (6115) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Draft at the CBC/Black Sheep brewpub. Bright and light through and through. Tartly citric with an acidic sting, yet drinks very lightly on the palate. Pleasant sessionable beer, goes well with the spicy food. (#5874, 11/24/2014)

hopscotch (10426) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Growler... Muckfest 2014… Pours lightly-hazed and golden with a minimal, short-lived, fizzy, white head. The aroma is immensely tropical, juicy and a touch citrusy. Medium-bodied with modest carbonation. Leans a smidge toward the bitter side of balance, but is mostly thin and watery. Still pleasant and enjoyable.

Draft pour at Black Bear in Morgantown. Pours a semi hazy gold with a thick, white head of foam. The aroma is big citrusy fruit and a little bit of pine. The taste is fruity sweet at first, but starts to get a touch bitter toward the finish. Light body with medium carbonation. Pretty solid beer.

BeerdedDave (1071) - - FEB 17, 2014
on tap at the brewpub; light amber to gold color; citrusy, grapefruit aroma; nice, clean, crisp, citrusy hop flavor on a very light malt background that lets the hops shine; a light, easy drinking session beer with plenty of hop flavor
