COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

AmEricanbrew (6008) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - APR 24, 2011
clear amber color/ ivory head. Big ass resinous ganja bud, citrusy, pine hoppy aromas. Medium bodied. Hoppy bitter citrus grapefruit, pine flavors with a decent malt base. Pretty good taste, just needs a bigger malt presence to balance.

wavers1 (909) - Notown, California, USA - APR 16, 2011
nice fresh ipa from hermitage, these are a lot better than the topia series bombers, and the price is almost double, so there ya go. the pour is still fairly dark copper, but the hops really do shine through on this brew. as stated, it has that hermitage signature cereal/biscuit malt profile going on, and it may detract a tad in the finish from the hops but its pleasant. def the best of the bunch so far. this one is by far the most pleasurable to drink. super fruity, sweet hops, tastes like a ruby red grapefruit candy. pretty damn tasty ipa.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - APR 14, 2011
Total citrus/grapefruit flavor and palate profile. Nose is that nice cannabis hop smell. Finish is clean - the best of the bunch!

bhensonb (11522) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 12, 2011
POurs clear dark copper with a creamy/bubbly 3 finger beige head. Aroma is sort of cat pee/evergreen. Med+ body. Nice malt backbone wholly submerged by rough grapefruit rind. Nice bitter, hoppy drink. Mellow in a harsh way.
