Citra is the most well received in our series of Single Hop beers. After taking Gold in 2011 and 2012 at the California Craft Brew Competition, and due to its high demand with our consumers, we decided to make this a year-round style. This IPA pours a dark amber in color with an off-white head. The hop aroma is floral, with citrus notes, while the malts have a toasted barley character with some caramel. CitraĎs hop flavor is resiny, with some citrus quality that is offset by toasty malt flavors with a touch of caramel. This is a moderately full bodied beer, with a bright carbonation, and a dry finish.

An interesting beer- good to taste a single hopís character, but I usually prefer more of a medley. Pours a beautiful golden yellow brown, however.

22 oz bomber. Pours dark amber with slight head. Super hoppy with all of the expected citrus notes. Pineapple, peach, lemon, and grapefruit are all in there. In comparison to other IPAs that have used CItra, itís a lot less balanced. That notwithstanding, a very nice IPA.

Amber pour. Caramel malt and candied citrus in the nose, doesnít smell fresh yet I havenít seen it before on the shelves in IL. Flavor is again caramel candy, low bitterness, floral hops. Seems to lack most citra character. My guess is it is both a bit old and their hop addition times and quantities just sucked.

It poured a hazy amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of floral and citrus hops. The taste was of pine and citrus hops, esters, and a little bit of malt sweetness. A very good IPA.

This isnít quite the Citrus bomb that you would expect from a Citra hopped beer, In fact, the bitterness is more dominant; not that thatís a bad thing. There is a nice peachy middle taste that blends with a malt combo that reminds me of the malts used in Founders I.P.As.. Speaking of Founders, I prefer the Centennial single hop I.P.A to this one but I would definitely buy this again.

wlajwl (5778) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Aroma is citrus-orange, tropical fruit and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is citrus, lemons, malts and a long and very dry/mildly tangy finish.

Strykzone (6720) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Bomber. Dark copper in hue with a robust beige head. Nice lacing remains. A big citrus aroma with bready caramel. A really big citrus hop flavor. It is tart and biting. Not so much bitter as expected. Grapefruit and some fairly big malts. The hop profile takes this close to Double territory. The Citra hop stands up just fine by itself but this is becoming over done. Still, this is tasty and a nice showcase for the hop.
