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.

bottle from BevMo, pours light amber with a thin tan head. Aroma is dank as hell, grassy aromas very skunky in a good way. Flavor is more straight forward toast and light nutty malts with a good kick of skunky hops with citrus lingering in the finish. Another good one, but my favorite was the Amarillo.

Served from a 22 oz bottle from BevMo. The appearance is a good looking golden brown with a good sized off white to cream head. The aromas are very citrus with the hop profile. A clean orange comes through nice with a good pale malt underbelly. The flavors enter with a good orange hop flavor, good malt base but a definite metallic taste. The orange reminds me of an orange drink orange or something slightly artificial but not in a terrible way. The malts are nicely done for the hop. Medium to full bodied and not overly bitter which makes sense for the citra hop. Overall some potential but once again with this brewery, metallic flavors are very present and destructive. I will wait before I buy anything bottle from these guys again but they have some potential.

Pours an orange red color. Aroma is acidic with a faint whiff of cat pee. Taste is citra but it is easily manhandled by any food. Seems ABV heavy for a light hop profile.

ChazMania (658) - Pasadena, California, USA - APR 26, 2011
Bomber poured into pint glass. I bought this and the Amarillo version. I was very disappointed in both. Each beer looks great with a dark orange and clear color with a nice head. The taste of this beer was bad. I poured out the last half with rarely rarely ever happens with me, especially any IPA. This beer tastes like aluminum fluoride. There is definitely a "house flavor" with all these Hermitage beers (I’ve had 3) which is not enjoyable for me.

AmEricanbrew (6177) - 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.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 20, 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.

Total citrus/grapefruit flavor and palate profile. Nose is that nice cannabis hop smell. Finish is clean - the best of the bunch!

bhensonb (11906) - 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.
