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.

22 oz. bottle from BevMo - Pours a hazy amber color with a thin off white head. Faint spotty lacing. Aroma is floral and citrus hops. Flavor is pine and citrus hops, esters, and a little bit of malt sweetness. Finish is somewhat bitter and dry. Light to medium body. A nice IPA.

22oz bottle...thanks Tim! Poured an amber color with an averaged sized head. Aromas of citrus, some earthiness, and some rinds. Tastes of citrus with some light caramel.

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - MAY 29, 2011
650ml bottle from bevmo. Pours a translucent copper color with a small off-white head that slowly recedes to a fine film. The aroma is pungent with fresh hops that evoke grapefruit, oranges and some green chlorophyll. The taste is overtly bitter and follows the nose with good citrus character set in a caramel malt backdrop. The palate is uneven and starts thin, the carbonation is lively and prickly. Finishes long and harsh. Overall: Good, but ruined by a harsh finish that I found distracting.

TURDFERGUSON (4027) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 28, 2011
Bottle. Thanks Baker! Deep glowing orange with a spitty dense white head. Smells of lemon, burnt sugar, citrus, earth, peach, light butter. Flavor is slightly malty, watery, light citrus and finishes very bitter and ashy.

22 ounce bottle purchased at BevMo in Natomas. Wow, the aroma on this is intense. Lots of mango, passionfruit, apricot, and pine needles. Wow. Is this 100% Citra? If so, I may have a new favorite hop. This isn’t too far off from Sculpin’s aroma. There is a light underlying malt sweetness. Transparent copper body with a smallish off-yellow head. Darker than I would expect. Starts with big piney flavors, before this gets a little peachy. The middle has some tannins and a chewy, roasted, almost burnt characteristic. Finishes with a good deal of bitterness that is more in the grapefruit and pine mold. Not a huge fan of the grain bill in this, but the hops are out-freaking-standing.

arminjewell (8853) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 21, 2011
Pours hazy orange-red with white head, aroma has notes of tangerine, grapefruit, some lemon, slight pine and bready malt. Taste is full of piny and citrus filled hop oils, with notes of bready malt driving the sweetness aspect, finishing slightly bitter but not overly so, lots of nice hop notes throughout. Thanks baker!

marcus (8001) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 17, 2011
Bottle from BevMo Arden. Pours copper with a rich beige head and a citrus aroma. There is a decent caramel malt base with an extreme piny hop bitterness. Not well-balanced, but pretty drinkable.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Bottle. Pours with a hazy, orange hued body with a small and fading off-white head. Some lace left behind, but not much. Aromas are tropical fruit, lightly herbal hop qualities, a bit of rotten orange (not how Citra normally is for me). A bit of a urine quality. Estery. Malt profile comes across as a bit sticky, caramel and toffee like. Flavors are pappery, grainy, bitter, medium astringency. Malt seems slightly oxidized, but the hops are still there (hot side aeration? crappy malt (heard that a recent batch of Canadian 2-row is off)). Hops are kind of faint, fruity. Bitter balance. Dry, earthy, soil, metallic quality. Lively bubbles, dry. Soapy. I don’t know why I keep buying from theses guys.

nickd717 (3782) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 10, 2011
Bomber from BevMo Sunnyvale. Man, everyone and their mother is brewing a Citra IPA these days. Especially their mothers. Mama Tick brews a DISGUSTING one...and I mean "disgusting" in the way that means "awesome!" Pours a clear reddish-amber color with a one-finger off-white head that has average retention. Very nice aroma, earthy, resinous, and citrusy, with a caramel malt background and light toast. The flavor has a substantial caramel malt base and a good hoppiness to it. Average malt and hop balance. Fairly resinous with lots of grapefruit. High bitterness level. Medium-plus bodied with loads of hop resins and average carbonation. A surprisingly righteous Citra IPA. Actually becomes a little brutal to drink much of though, so I have to mark it down a touch there.

Sampled on 4/23/2011. This IPA pours a medium to dark orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is citrusy and grapefruity, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied India Pale Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy and grapefruity. Clean and crisp. Medium bitterness. Nicely balance. A touch of lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is bitter.
