COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

jercraigs (8666) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2015
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.

Bottle from Happy’s Market, Ellensburg, WA
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 (1211) - 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.

Bottle: Light golden-orange color with a large khaki head. Plenty of sheet lacing throughout. Nose is a light citrus and tropical fruit blend; modest caramel malt in the background. Similar translates to the flavor profile, but I found some earthy floral notes have crept in. Good citrus and nice use of the citra as the showcase. Easy drinker.

Nice golden pour with a good foam head and decent lacing. Aroma is pure tropical citrus. Strong notes of citrus fruits and pine. Good hoppy bitterness. A great IPA!
