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. Citra‘s 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.

(22oz bomber thanks to bu11zeye) deep copper, soapy white bubbles. Nose of honey, light citrus bitterness, funky, cream, smells nice. Taste of simcoe even though it’s not, lemon, grapefruit, honey. Like it cause it tends towards sweet. Oily body.

Nice deep copper coloured body with an amber glow and a thick, three centimetre tall tan head - very nice looking, especially for an IPA. Aroma of bright grassy and herbal hops with a bit of sugars, some caramel and a bunch of malt noticeable. Light to Medium-bodied; Grassy and herbal hoppiness up front that fades fairly quickly and just shows malt, caramel, cardboard and a bit of light earth at the end. Aftertaste is fairly simple with only malt and a touch of grassy and earthy hops noticeable. Overall, not such a great beer, I’ve had other single hop citra productions that were much better in showcasing the hops, but this one is a bit flat, one dimensional and doesn’t show enough of the hops to really get through. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from BevMo! in San Bruno, California on 05-March-2012 for US$3.99 sampled at home in Washington before heading back out to California in a few hours, on 30-April-2012.

Bomber poured a clear orange amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, earthiness, citrus and light pine. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, earthiness, light grapefruit and a hint of pine with a crisp dry lingering bitter finish.

Bottle; not expecting too much. Poured a dark amber color with not much head. Aroma was pungent and quite good. Grapefruit, citrus, caramel, earth and fruity yeast. Flavor was ok, not great. Earthy and citrus, but maybe lacking a little something special.

Medium white foam, medium yellow in color with orange’ish notes. smells of mango, tropical fruits, citrusy. taste overwhelms the mouth with both bitterness and notes of tropical fruits. clear citrus and even grapefruit. fills out the mouth with bitterness in a pleasent way. long aftertaste of citrus and bitterness

Bomber pours clear copper with off white head. The aroma offers up grapefruit, resiny bitter hops, a touch of acidity, sweeter malt notes, orange juice and orange peel. The taste is much the same with grapefruit, tangelo and orange like citrus hop notes mixing with lighter sweet malts flavors in the background. At times the hops get fairly bitter and the resininess helps to create a somewhat dry finish.

phaleslu (9429) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2011
22 oz. bottle from deftim13- thanks, Tim! Pours a somewhat cloudy amber-tinted orange with a small white film for a head. Explosive aroma of orange, tropical fruits, herbs, sweaty socks, sweet malts, and wet grass. Flavor of rain water, soggy cereal, citrus fruits, peaches, sweet malts, and an off-putting note that tastes like a wet dog smells. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry finish. The flavor isn’t necessarily bad, but presents a lot of odd notes that don’t match the aroma at all.

Spicy, vegetal and slightly musky aroma. Bright, clear light orange/copper with a puffy off-white head. Dank, vegetal bitterness with a bit of citrus pith and peach on the edges. Like the others in this series, a good malt backbone to support the single hop bitterness without getting in the way. Enjoyable IPA and another interesting study in a particular hop variety.
