The first in our Purebred series of single hop A.P.A.s showcases the hop variety Citra. These are used for everything from bittering and flavor to aroma. The soft bitterness of the Citra hop makes this an extremely drinkable beer.

Bomber from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Nice deep golden with a two finger off white head. Looks good. Lots of lacing. Citra is one of my favorite hops so I expect to enjoy this. That is certainly in the nose. Nice fruit that is tropical and citrus. Floral, too. The latter is tasted more than smelled. The hop is allowed to shine and it does so beautifully. This is good stuff. The finish was a bit on the dry side. That is such a good hop and they did a very good job in showcasing it.

Bomber bought at the grocery store. Bottled about a month and a half ago. Aroma is grapefruit, floral. Pours slightly hazy golden with a collapsing medium bone-white head. Taste has a medium-level bitterness backed by some candy sweetness. Not too clean. Pretty average overall. This says it was supposed to be the first in a series of single hop beers but there haven’t been any others since. What happened to this idea?

Citrusy aroma. Smokey aroma. Some floral. Clearaopearance. Golden colored. Thin head that receeds to a white ring around the glass. I get like hamburger in the smell. Citrusy flavor. Mild in the hoppiness department. Thin bodied. Abrupt finish. Taste a hint of tartness like grapefruit. Easy drinking beer i have to say.

2015-06-05. Very lightly hazy golden orange body with a small white head. 3+ Aroma starts out quite green and hoppy, musky then resin notes and some citrus. Flavour is similarly green up front, moderate resin, tropical fruit and mild citrus. Average bodied palate, good carbonation. Very drinkable. On tap at Edmonton Craft Beer Festival.

Good dry APA, but it has almost more herbaceous content than the citrusy power expected by this hop. the aroma is also a bit bready. The final is sharp, almost metallic.

radio_nowhere (1329) - Maryland, USA - APR 17, 2015
Draft labeled as IPA at Cherry Blossom Beer & Wine fest a week ago, orangy-golden color with light tan head. Aroma notes of strong tropical fruit/citrus hops (pineapple, lemon, grapefruit). Taste adds caramel, peach and grass notes. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation, dry with bitter citrus/pine finish. Nice citra IPA.

Bomber.

Gold-orange pour. Pineapple and grapefruit pith, malts relatively forward. Decent but not an exceptional APA.
